my daughters hair is quite long, she puts hairnets on, untill she can find the 1940's hairdresser at the show, then pays the fiver to have victory rolls. if no hairdresser, she keeps the nets on.

Hi there,
I did a little blog, and I use a lot of the tutorials on you tube. (but beware of the none 1940s 'pin up' styles)

Hi I started doing re-enactments a couple of years ago and i found this video on how to do victory rolls, which is so helpful and easy to follow it takes a couple of attempts to get it right but it's worth it in the end. http://www.diaryofavintagegirl.com/2011/02/victory-rolls-in-jiffy.html

I usually either fasten my hair back completely by rolling the whole lot into a horse shoe shape around the back of my head from ear to ear, or I make a big roll across the front and curl what is left hanging. Like this .... http://www.fanpix.net/0108628/016732212 ... cture.html My hair is 2 or 3 inches below my shoulders and has a few layers. Poker straight hair was not fashionable during the war so if you have any hair left hanging after styling victory rolls for example you should give it a bit of a curl or a wave!
