Quick and easy retro hairstyle

The internet can be a wonderful thing. Whenever you want to learn how to do something all you have to do is open up your computer and type in your search. One day I was browsing rockabilly and vintage hairstyles on YouTube and came across a great tutorial for how to do faux victory rolls. This hairstyle is often my go-to do and works great for next-day hair. Unfortunately, I went to look for it and I can not find it! I couldn’t find anything like it on YouTube, so perhaps it doesn’t exist, or I am just not looking for it correctly.

I know it’s not as fantastic as a video, but here is how to do a fake victory-roll inspired hair-do via pictures and instructions: (please forgive the awkward photos and facial expressions)

Other options:

  • After pinning sections, brush hair back into a ponytail. A low, side ponytail works great.
  • Braid ponytail, or make pig tails.
  • Forgo the hair flower and tie ponytail or pigtails with ribbon

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

  2. Thanks for the clear instructions. They worked the first time! I have a suggestion for those with super silky hair like mine. It’s a little known fact that bobbly pins were designed to be used with the little end sticking down, next to the scalp. This catches the hair more securely and allows the second pun to “lock” the first pin more securely.

  4. My kids and I were looking through printers at retro hair pictures. Honestly this hair tutorial made us full stop. You are like my doppelganger. Its so weird to see someone that looks a lot like you but isn’t you. Haha I thought you may find this amusing.
