Trending for Your Strands: Hair Rolls

Trending for Your Strands: Hair Rolls(Source: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images North America) Victory rolls might be a hairstyle of the past, but hair rolls certainly are not. In fact, the twisted look recently underwent a makeover thanks to some famous faces. We spotted four leading ladies wearing various versions of the same double-sided hair roll. 

The concept behind the 'do is simple: pull two strands of hair back and roll up. It doesn't get much simpler than that. The style blends a classic chignon and a vintage victory roll for a completely contemporary updo that has just a touch of retro flair. Check out the many ways celebs are making this look work on the red carpet.
