long time watcher, first time poster!

Hi there, I've been watching this community in awe for a long time, hoping that something I see I might one day be able to figure out how to do myself!

Mostly I just look at all your great photos and admire you all for carrying on the beautiful history of vintage hair :)

Now, I wish I could say I did these myself... but anyhow!
I got my hair done yesterday, I firstly went into get my colours re-done because I had some serious re-growth taking over, but once that was done the lovely manager at The Lockworks http://www.wildilocks.com, Cat asked me if I would indulge her by letting her put some victory rolls in.
Never having had them before, I jumped at then chance!

So... on to my photos! *enjoy!*


*many photos under cut!*











My fringe looks a little naff because I've decided to keep it longer for quiffs, but with victory rolls, one cannot have a quiff so I attempted to flip it to the side. ;)

I wish I had actually been going out that night!

and something else to add, I slept with them in last night comfortably and they're still fine today!

'sculpted outta ur hair!

I know, huh? Their huge!
She took full side sections, then sectioned those, then lightly curled the ends with a straightener and teased them lightly at the roots so they all ended up standing up in the air. Next sprayed them with super glue hair spray that smelt like watermelon! And then she literally sculpted them into shape by combing the ends around while sticking the mini sections together, and curling it around into the roll. Finishing by pinning and more spraying :)

The rolls looks really beautiful, i hadnt seen them close up like that n thanks for taking them from different angles too cos it lets me see more how theyre done. I also love your colours.

I knew you gals would want to see them from all angles to figure out how they were done, so I took all kinds of photo angles just for you all! :)

I had the colour mixed specially for me to be a little bit darker than my glasses :P

Wow! You took so many great pics - can I borrow a couple?? I already put some of the ones I took in our client gallery but I didn't get any shots really front-on!

In case you're curious, these are some she did on me the day before I put in my current wool extensions:

I just couldn't stop looking in the mirror ALL night... but I think yours look better!!

Damn but I <3 my manager!
