Rockabilly Hairstyles!

Victory Rolls and Bright Colors

and everything in between!

When it comes to hair I believe “bigger is better”!  I love vintage and Rockabilly hairstyles, especially in bright colors. Unfortunately my naturally curly hair gets fried super easily, so the more I color it and use blow dryers and curling irons to style it- the more fried it gets… so I have come up with a “cheater” way of doing my victory rolls where I just twist my hair into a roll and pin it in place. Bobby pins are THE KEY- and I can’t leave out the importance of hairspray, especially since my hair is fried into multi-layers and half would stick out or fall out without it! When I want my victory rolls to look really good and big I use a large curling iron. Using curlers on wet hair, until it dries, is the best way to get the curl to stay in shape- your hair will NOT go limp with wet to dry curlers like it will with hot curlers or a curling iron!! But once again… because my hair is fried into multi-layers, it doesn’t all stay in the curlers and it takes so long to dry it is usually still wet the next morning (regardless of the type of curler).  All that said- I refuse to give up on fabulous styles like these, I just may have to put in extra time and effort to achieve the hairstyles these rockabilly beauties have!
