Here’s how to create victory rolls

2. Dry in product

3. Take horizontal section

4. Divide in two

5. Place section in styler, rotate one turn and glide

6. Curl defined

7. Work through curls with paddle brush

8. Section at crown and backcomb

9. Twist section of hair

10. Roll hair to create knot and pin 

step one: Spray hair with root lift spray

To help give your hair that added volume, prep the damp hair with ghd root lift spray

step two: Dry in product

Dry the root lift spray into hair using ghd air® hairdryer.

step three: Take horizontal section

Take a horizontal section of hair from above the ear

step four: Divide in two

Then divide that section into two parts

step five: Place section in styler, rotate one turn and glide

Place section between ghd platinum® styler plates and keeping the styler horizontal, rotate 360 degrees and gently pull through to the ends of the hair.

step six: Curl defined

This technique creates a defined curl. 

step seven: Work through curls with paddle brush

Gently brush through the curls with the ghd paddle brush to transform into soft waves. 

step eight: Section at crown and backcomb

Section the hair at the crown and lightly backcomb to create lift at the roots. 

step nine: Twist section of hair

To start making your victory roll, tightly twist this section of hair. 

step ten: Roll hair to create knot and pin

Roll the hair up into itself to create a knot-effect and then pin to secure in place.
