Tool to help for a victory roll

Here is a good tip that I learned a few years ago from my friend Dena Olivett, the wedding hairstyle and makeup queen. If you are having trouble making uniform victory rolls or trouble controlling the shape while you roll, try using one of these. This is the Curl Easy Pro Brush by Newave and I have never seen them anywhere except Sally Beauty Supply. They come in 3 sizes and run about $6. I think they are designed to actually replace a round brush for blow-outs, but I have yet to figure out how that works. It never works right for me when I try it. Click the images to go.

  1. Great idea! I bought one of these, and I had no idea what to do with it...it was one of those impulse purchases. Anyways, now I'll have a reason to go and dig it out of its drawer. :)

  3. Do you happen to have a picture of where you would put the very tip of your hair when you first start rolling it up? Also is there a certain sized brush you would recommend over the others? Thanks!

  4. Oh wow! I'm definitely going to pick one up. And I too, would really like to see how to start the roll with one of these brushes. It also looks like you can pin the roll without having to remove the brush, am I wrong?

  5. That is so neat! I always end up using the handle on my hairbrush to try and get perfect rolls but it tends to be a little small to do proper victory rolls.

  10. I use a dolly peg, it makes a smaller roll than those do, but for me it works perfectly every time. http://direct.hobbycraft.co.uk/productdetail.asp?productcatalogue=254948
    Very cheap too :-)

    If the slot is too narrow, I've heard that you can you can soak them in boiling water for a while to expand it.

  12. Aveda made these for a while and they were used to style naturally curly hair. You are supposed to place it at the roots, twist a little and blow dry to get some a lift. There were a few other options too. I look forward to trying it in a new way!

  13. I bought one of these a few years ago at Aveda (like another poster commented) and have been tinkering around with them lately for pin curls but they seem too big. GREAT suggestion for victory rolls! I think this is going to save me a lot of time :)

  14. Peeps in England (like me): just scored them on Ebay here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251185217996?_trksid=p5197.c0.m619, select the curl option not the bob option!
