ok...hair rats...well to achieve my swell hair style (Victory Rolls), I created some vintage inspired hairstyle helpers...ok now don't get grossed out here...they are merely bags of hair...mine are bun nets stuffed with my old hair extensions and then stiched and manipulated to make tubular shapes that I then roll my hair around...now I realise the "Victory Rolls" title refers to the war but I think it's a real victory to get this style right the first attempt...this is not my first as you can probably tell but I think it turned out pretty neat.

My mother had something of this nature that I found in a drawer when I was a young child. It was kind of strange looking, like her blond hair in a tube of nylon or something. And that's how they used them, around their own hair. Very WWII vintage.
Love your Work!
