1940's Victory Rolls
Inspired by omgspicegirls quest for spong hair rollers to make Victory Rolls.. I'm starting a thread on Victory Rolls

In the late 1940's, the victory roll hairstyle was wildly popular. This term was actually used for a fighter plane maneuver, but women adopted it for a fashion statement that celebrated the victory after WWII. This picture shows one woman's version of this hairdo. These were the days before blow-dryers, so it was necessary to come up with ways to style hair that worked for them back then. This is a picture of my mother who had very fine hair. She would put pin curls in her wet hair at night and sleep on them to be styled in the morning. Sections of hair were wound around fingertips and secured to the head with bobby pins. This gave the hair body and curl. Then, the next morning, the strands were brushed up the sides and pinned at the top in rolls. Some rolls were more defined than others.

I love victory rolls! They are rather easy to do and always look fun and classy.
....I just watched the video, and have never seen them done with a sponge roll before, if you back comb your hair a bit beforehand you really shouldn't have any problem rolling your hair. (I have fine hair and can make some pretty impressive rolls)

Glad to see others appreciate vintage hairstyles as much as I do (admittedly, I love all things from the past)! I have lots of photographs showing victory rolls, so hopefully someone will enjoy them.
