Materials You Will Need

  • Hairbrush

  • Hairpins

  • Hair elastics

  • Hairspray

  • Curling iron (optional)

  • Setting lotion (optional)

Step-by-Step Guide

1. Prepare Your Hair

H2: Clean and Dry Your Hair

Start with clean, dry hair. If your hair lacks natural volume, apply a setting lotion or mousse and blow-dry to add some texture. This will help the hairstyle hold better.

2. Section Your Hair

H2: Divide into Sections

Brush your hair thoroughly to remove any tangles. Divide your hair into three main sections: two sections from the front (above each ear) and one large section at the back. Clip the front sections out of the way.

3. Create the Barrel Rolls

H2: Form the Victory Rolls

H3: Back Section

  1. Curl the Hair: If you prefer a more polished look, curl the back section of your hair using a curling iron.

  2. Roll and Pin: Take a small portion of hair from the back section, roll it upwards around your fingers to create a barrel shape, and pin it securely at the scalp with hairpins. Repeat this for the entire back section, forming multiple barrel rolls.

H3: Front Sections

  1. Twist and Roll: Release one of the front sections. Twist the hair gently and roll it backwards to create a barrel roll above your ear. Secure it with hairpins. Repeat on the other side.

  2. Adjust and Secure: Make sure the rolls are symmetrical and secure. Adjust any loose strands and pin them as needed.

4. Finishing Touches

H2: Secure and Set

Once all the rolls are in place, use a generous amount of hairspray to secure the hairstyle and tame any flyaways. For added hold, you can use bobby pins to reinforce the rolls.

Tips for Perfecting the Victory Barrel Hairstyle

H2: Styling Tips

  • Volume: If you have thin hair, backcombing before rolling can add volume.

  • Practice: It may take a few tries to get the rolls even and symmetrical. Practice makes perfect!

By following these steps, you can easily create a beautiful Victory Barrel hairstyle that exudes vintage charm and elegance. This hairstyle is perfect for weddings, parties, or any occasion where you want to make a statement.
