How To: Hair Rolls

Hair rolls rocked the runways of the Fall 2007 fashion shows across Europe. Designers such as Margaret Howell, Veronique Branquinho and Nathan Jenden chose these styles because they are a wispy, modern and avant-garde version of an up-do. They keep hair off the neck to showcase the beauty of the clothing (and the models, too). This modern and elegant style is really easy to do, and it looks great in any season.

The first two looks above were originally constructed by Neil Moodie using all Bumble and Bumble products. For five simple step-by-step instructions on how to create this look at home for yourself.

  • Step 1: Begin by spraying Tonic ($17) onto wet hair. The add a few spritzes of Thickening Spray ($23) to the roots. If your hair is thin, you'll want to spray on a generous amount.
  • Step 2: Next, blow-dry your hair using rough, quick motions to create volume.
  • Step 3: Once hair is dry, spray Hair Powder ($34) to create a matte texture, and to add grip for the roll.
  • Step 4: Separate your hair into three sections (two side and one back) and roll the hair starting from the bottom and working your way up. As you are finished with each section, secure the rolls with bobby pins (use as many as necessary) and smooth out the top of your hair by gently brushing hair downwards.
  • Step 5: Spray your entire head with Does It All Hairspray ($23) for a finishing touch.

I'd wear it, it would look good with the glamour fall makeup. You can choose this style for anytime, it's not just for the runway.

Girls this is as glamorous and sexy as femininty gets! The 40's & 50's!!! Anyone can acheive this look with practice and you dont have to use expensive products to do it. When I do my rolls I use a hair goo that you can purchase for sure in Mexico Called "Moco de Gorilla", you can also find it on ebay. My husband uses it for his pompadour, my 3 boys for their "fohawks" and myself for my rolls or a mini pump in the front of my head. My family swears by this stuff, no flakes and an all day hold (or on to the next day) for sure!!! Try it chicas!

Oh. This is such a chic and fabulous look. I love it. Seriously, ladies, if you want to cut down on the amount of product that you need to put in your hair or, if you just want to cut down on the number of bobbies required, you can wrap your hair around a form. Get a rather spring from a craft or hobby shop. Wrap a hair net around it. Trim and affix the ahir net to the spring and you're ready to wrap. If any one needs a kind of demo let me know. I might be able to get to it later in the week.

I love this look, and will try it without all the expensive product. Bobby pins are the key, girls!

Oh very romantic but I doubt I can do it. I'm readlly bad and doing my hair the way I want it to be or what I see from magazines. Maybe I'm just not coordinated.

It's pretty, but I don't think my hair would stay in this for long. Plus, the costly products it requires means it would never happen on my head. LOL
