HOLIDAY HOW-TO: Winter Vintage Victory Roll

by Lauren Salapatek | December 19, 2013

In preparation for the holiday party mania that’s just around the corner, senior stylist Graziella Lembo of SalonCapri in Boston has created two festive hairstyles to rock at any holiday shindig- - from an office party to an A-list New Year’s Eve bash! Here, you can learn how to re-create the Winter Vintage Victory Roll.

STEP 1: First, begin by applying a coat of Shu Uemuras’s Fiber Lift Protective Volumizer Gel to entire hair to smooth down frizz and flyaways.

STEP 2: Choose a side and create a deep, angled side part.

STEP 3: Next, leave a small section of hair out in the front; gather the rest of the hair and pull back into a tight pony. Secure with a hair elastic just above the nape of the neck.

STEP 4: Take the ponytail and separate into 3-4 sections; twist each section into a tight coil to form a bun, pin in place.

STEP 5: Then take a small portion of the front section of hair and wrap it around the base of the bun. Secure with a bobby pin.

STEP 6: Next, take the remainder of hair and twist into a small coil.

STEP 7: To finish, carefully pin the coil so that it lays flat on top of the head; apply a heavy coat of L’Oreal Professionnel Freezing Mist for hold.
