Victory rolls are a women's hairstyle popular in the 1940s, characterized by voluminous curls of hair that frame the face.[1] The style is named for the aerobatic maneuver and World War II support efforts in general.[2] Victory rolls are closely associated with the pin-up look and achieved using hairspray and various backcombing, rolling, pinning, and curling techniques. More recently, this style has seen a particular resurgence in vintage-era theme parties and on the swing dance scene.
