Vintage Hair in Under 5 Minutes

I stumbled across this video and was amazed! I had always wondered how women in the 40's got their hair to roll up, here's the answer - sponge rolls and bobby pins! Who knew...

I can't wait to try it! The 40s are my favorite fashion era.

You can still find some of the rollers and chignons from the 40s on Ebay!

Victory rolls! I wore them to my wedding. I've been meaning to post some photos on myspace. The method I followed just sort of rolls them round your fingers! Maybe I should try the sponge rollers. Very sweet hairstyle but boy what a pain in the arse!

I always wondered how women in the forties did Victory Rolls. Thanks so much for solving a mystery I've wondered about since I was 14!
