I have always liked to change my hair. While I was at uni, I sported quite a few different styles, spending hundreds of pounds a time on it. Yet when I left uni, I realised that bright pink and white hair didn't potential scream "employ me", nor was it affordable on an interns lack of salary!

First I cut it into a bit of a 'Frankie from S Club 7' (you know, that massively well known and popular style?!) - short at the back with lots of layering on the top for volume. This worked for me for a while, yet I quickly got bored. So I decided (12 months before I was due to get married!) "I know, I will shave half of it off!" So, I did!

So the only option I had was to grow it out. This was made easy by my favorite accessory - the head scarf! (I get mine from Bow & Crossbones as they have a huge range of colours and they are only £3.50)
I have been growing out my shaved hair for about 9 months now and I am lucky in that my hair grows quite quickly. I have been giving it a bit of a helping hand by doing regular coconut oil treatments at home, which is said to help promote faster hair growth, and I have seen a difference.
While my hair has been growing, it has enabled me to practice, practice, practice and I can now do a killer Victory Roll. Yet I cannot wait for my hair to grow longer so I can do bumper bangs, double victory rolls, wet sets and curls!

For those of you who are new to pinup up hair and are where I was about 9 months ago, the only advice I can give to you is PERSISTENCE! Your first few attempts will look rubbish (God knows mine did) but you will get there in the end!
I have been asked by the beautiful @Rozellerose on Instagram to do a Victory Roll tutorial on my blog and I will put that up soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
