5 Minute Beach Pinup Hair : Floral/ Reverse Victory Roll /Side Updo

Hello There Vintage Lovers!!

Today we will be doing a Beach 5 minute do. ( Side Bun with a Reverse Victory Roll)

Inspired by this photo!!
 You can eighter put a scarf or a Hawaiian hair clip!!!!

Today we are talking easy so this can either be done with no hair set... a day after you had  your hair set... it doesn't matter.

Its all about pining and rolling !
I really like this hair do specially if you don't want you hair to get wet...or if you have long hair and it just gets you hot under the sun... its really great do' plus it has this pinup look to it!!!

What you need:
2 elastic pony tail holders
Lots of bobby pins
Head scarf/ or Hawaiian hair clip!
( I'm using a flower hair clip to add a little more oomph to the beach look)

The Tools you need


Take a sqaure section were your part is ( this is were the victory roll is going to be at) put it a side. the first pony tail goes behind your ear the second pony tail goes behind the first.

Roll the first pony tail into a standing up pin curl.

Pin it with a bobby pin, and fan the edges to make it bigger.

Do the same to the second pony tail. The space in between my finger will be filled with the hair that is pushed aside.

Let the section for your victory roll down.

Split that section into a medium small size triangle. and also push that aside.

The pieces that are left use them to fill in the gap between the two bun rolls.

Pin it.

Take the section for your reverse victory roll and roll it up!!!

Pin it!!!

Next add your flower !!!

This is SO easy!! Perfect for the beach!! All it takes is 5 minutes!! If you mater pin curling and victory rolls ( reverse victory rolls are easier you can actually do this less than 5 minutes!!!)

Hope I explained it well, if you have any questions please just ask!!
Hope you guys love the hair do!!
