I decided to make mine really messy, kind of "medievalish" today, but it's really easy to make it clean and neat looking, so if you're not into the messy look, don't worry it doesn't have to be this way!
Without further ado, here is a step by step, how to do a vintage roll updo!
All you need is:
Start with your hair brushed out and tangle free. Or if you don't feel like it, don't worry, I didn't either so I left my hair like this:
Get the top of your hair under control at least and brush back your part if you have one:
Make a ponytail but don't add an elastic:
Fold the long part of your ponytail on top of itself and hold the ends with your other hand:
Do it again:
Now you just start rolling and pinning! The first couple of times I did this I was nervous about it slipping out before I could pin it, but it's ok! Just keep tucking and rolling and go back and pin it once the main part is secure!
If you have a lot of hair like me, you're going to need a lot of pins:
Don't be afraid to grab your roll and smash it into submission, like I am here:
I left mine messy. I kind of like it this way:
The weather is kind of nasty here right now, so I'm mostly wearing my winter cap. Which looks cute too, don't you think?
Please let me know if you give it a shot and what you think!
