While there are many ways to wear your hair up, the rolled updo always seems to fall short when having to compete with a braid, a classic French twist, or other chignon styles. Worn by numerous sirens of the 40’s and reinterpreted over time, this romantic look is one to explore.

A necessary tool for creating this look is a foam roll called a rat that comes in various sizes. I have heard you may also use a piece of fabric. With a few tucks and pins along with some strong holding and smoothing hair products, you are on your way to a refined vintage hair moment. Don’t forget to add those contradictory elements when deciding on wardrobe and accessories to keep things updated and modern.
