Victory Rolls: a cult hairstyle
In a time when the rolled fringe reigned supreme with every lady rocking this look, one variation went down in history: Victory Rolls. Two sections of hair, rolled and pinned up to form rolls on top of the head, framed the face, putting a twist on loose locks and chignons. Worn as a sign of support for the allied troops, these rolls had a shape inspired by a manoeuvre fighter pilots used during combat. They took the name of ‘Victory rolls’ towards the end of the war.
