Rolling Or Hemming?
If someone asked you whether it's more fashionable to hem your pants or to roll them, what would you say?

Depends really...

Most of the time I'd roll them inside chop of the excess and use heat-activated glue to fix them inside...

OR

Buy trousers that fit.

Is "rolling" the same as folding to make a cuff on the bottom?

Rolling them is trendy and hemming them is classy

I agree.. it depends, but I almost always have to hem my pants because my legs are too short

if by rolling you mean cuffing, yes. but if by hemming you mean tailoring, yes. and if by either, you meant neither....no.

figure that out.

Jeans look okay cuffed, provided they're straight-legged or with only a slight flare. I don't think trousers should ever be cuffed, unless they come with a sewn-down cuff.
