How-To: Retro Rolled Bangs

Talk about high rollers. This 1940's roller-set hairstyle is creeping its way back. Do you ever wonder how Gwen Stefani, Paris Hilton and Christina Aguilera all get their hair rolls to stay in place? I can tell you how in just five steps. (And don't worry, this look isn't reserved strictly for bleached blondes.)


  • STEP 1: Begin with clean, damp hair. Apply a generous amount of mousse to roots and lengths. Blow-dry your hair until it is about 90 percent dry.
  • STEP 2: Next, use a clip to section off your bangs into a triangular shape from the rest of your hair. Dry the bottom of your hair any way you like and mist lightly with hairspray.

  • STEP 3: As for the front-crown section of your hair, separate it again into two parts. Wind hair around Velcro rollers and let it set for 20 minutes.
  • STEP 4: Take out the rollers and back-comb the hair to your desired height. Once you are finished, smooth it over with a boar-bristle brush.
  • STEP 5: Before you pin anything, carefully roll the two front sections of hair together around your fingers and secure by criss-crossing two bobby pins into a loop at the front of the head (the criss-cross ensures a tighter hold). As a finishing touch, spritz hair generously with firm hold hairspray.
