So I tried victory rolls yesterday. I followed the instructions in Vintage Hairstyling by Lauren Rennells. I think they turned out pretty well for my first try. I used hot rollers and I'm really please with the curl it gave my hair now that it's a little longer. I did learn that the trick is to position them on top of your head instead of on top but slightly to the side.
One question for you Victory Roll veterans: How do you hide the bobby pins but keep your hair in? I have really thick hair so I need to secure it well but this -^ is unacceptable. Haha. Thanks!
