Yay for more hairstyles 😀 This one is a big rolled vintagey style. I did a video on this one quite a while ago which is at the bottom of the post along with the downloadable version!
Let’s get into it, start with brushed hair.
You will need a hair sausage or something which can be put in the middle of the roll to pad it out. I did a tutorial a while ago on how to make your own sausage so check that out over here.
Start by brushing your hair backwards leaving a small section on either side of your face.
Decide roughly where you want the end result to sit on your head.
Gently hold the hair up like this:
If you don’t have a hair sausage you can use pretty much anything in that shape. Even a couple of clean socks rolled up will do 😉
Flip the ends of the hair over the sausage like this:
Gently roll the sausage and hair towards your head.
And it should end up like this:
Fluff out the sides so it covers the sausage completely. Pin it in place using bobby pins.
Now give it a a decent helping of hair spray.
Next curl the sections of hair you left down at the front.
You can leave them down like this as a softer version of the look.
Otherwise you can just fold the hair up so it follows the same curve of the roll and pin in place. It should hide the ends of the sausage completely.
Now just style your fringe.
As a finishing touch I like to add a some flowers at the top of the roll or a string of pearls.
This is a great style for summer as it keeps the hair off your neck.
For those of you who prefer videos here it is! I’ve been having some technical issues with embedding videos so if it doesn’t show up just leave me a comment and I’ll get it up again >_<
