Tutorial: Basic Victory Rolls

Sunday, January 29, 2012

You Tube, Ahoy! It took me 3 days but I -finally- figured out how to make a video and edit it.  I decided that a You Tube channel would the best way of doing my tutorials. In video, you can see my movements and you don't have to wait for Pj to come home and take pictures for me! I hope that this You Tube things allows me to do tutorials more frequently. If you get tired of my camera silliness and want the photo tutorials back, just tell me and I'll make that happen!

 Anyways, I did this tutorial over a year ago but my methods have changed a lot since then so I wanted to show you the way I do them now. Since Rhys fell asleep in my bedroom, I had to do record this video in the silent film method. I have a feeling that there will be a lot of that happening when I do my tutorials on the weekdays while Pj is at work.

 This tutorial is done on dry, straight hair. I will be doing a similar tutorial for victory rolls with pin curls soon. If anyone has any questions or problems, please leave me a comment below and I will do my best to help. Hope you enjoy!

NOTE: this video has music to it, so if you're at work or have sleeping kids next to you, be sure to turn your volume down before you hit play! :)

  5. This is an absolutely amazing tutorial! Do you think I could do something similar with short hair? I have a kind of long pixie cut, and I think I could potentially do something a little.... smaller.

    1. Oh, sure! My hair used to be quite shorter. I used a similar technique with smaller rolls. You can also kind of fake it by swooping the section of hair into a loop and pinning in place with a lot of hair spray...I think I may do a tutorial for that too! :)

  6. Nice work! I prefer the victory rolls as you do- assymetrical and with a sidepart!

  9. A fabulously awesome video! Loved watching you in the silent mode with the music. My hair is very thick, long and curly and has it's own way to behave. Would love to see some more styles, thanks.

  16. What a wonderful and funny tutorial - thank you so much, you're brilliant! I don't know hwat kind of hair style I could make, my hair is curly when freshly washed and fixed with tons of styling mousse, but very fizzy after some hours or the day after, and I cannot wash my hair each day, it takes me too much time (I have 2 kids). However, in Switzerland it's almost impossible to get hair accessories for vintage hair styles, so where could I get those? I could manage to crochet a snood, but all the other stuff? Anyway, thank you so much for sharing!
