Sponge Roller Set Brush Out Vintage Hair Tutorial

2738 ratings | 117472 views
Following on from a previous tutorial where I demonstrated how I like to do a dry sponge roller set in this video I show you how I brush that set out! My method is pretty simple, not too technical and works great for medium length haircuts, especially when cut in the vintage style.

So helpful! Thank you for all the wonderful hair vids
Melissa (1 month ago)
I've never been one to fuss over hair and have never really worn make-up. But I just love this vintage look and I want to do it. So this is like valuable research to me. I just can't imagine that the women of the day used to do this every dang day?! This explains the 3 tons of sponge and velcro rollers my Nana had under her bathroom sink. Real vintage rollers that I wish I had kept. >.<

Love your channel! Thanku! I’m just starting my vintage journey 🦋

I am a Bobby pin kind of girl. I was curious though. Your hair and you are beautiful. My hair stays pretty good for a few days but I think I need a layer cut. I never back comb nor use hairspray. I guess I am lazy. Great tutorial. Not every one is good at teaching. :)

That looks so fun and beautiful but I'm just a little scared that it won't look good on me

Seriously...how are you so beautiful. Love the tutorial! 💕🙌🏻😋

Brilliant! I just need a serum!

Side question, where are you from? I can't recognise the accent (I'm not a native English speaker)

It’s a New Zealand Accent that is where I am from

She sounds Australian, but could be New Zealand too.

Have you tried apple cider vinegar for the build up?

Your hair looks ABSOLUTELY beautiful!! This tutorial is so helpful!! Thank you! Where are you from? New Zealand? I love your accent. (I am American. 🙂)

Heidi E (10 months ago)
Was there hairspray back then? What did they use instead?
InLaws Attic (10 months ago)
Who taught you? Grandmother? You did a great job, looks just like I remember my Mom from 50’s, only she was brunette. Enjoyed, thanks!
USCHI LOU (10 months ago)
Oh my goodness, the tip about curling them too to tightly is amazing! I always curl them tighter because I thought that would prevent the frizzy ends and tangled curlers! Thank you! I cant wait to try it a bit looser now and see what happens.
Ivy Mossgarden (11 months ago)
I'm fascinated by her speech. Apparently all "e's" are long e's for Australian's? Meessy, meethod, depeends, seet. I love language & slang & dialect. I learned something new today. 😀
Hayley (11 months ago)
Ivy Mossgarden Ella is from New Zealand actually, in Australia we don’t say the long ‘ee’ sound you’re describing. Hard to explain but we pronounce things a lot harsher and ‘shorter’, more of an ‘eh’ sound :) she does have a lovely accent though!
Melissa Davies (11 months ago)
I feel like I have never understood hair or hair products before. Everything I knew before was wrong. You do beautiful work!
Barbra (11 months ago)
Do you have a tutorial on how to do your lipstick and shaping of it
Janelle Daly (11 months ago)
Absolutely beautiful!
Andrea Romero (1 year ago)
I’m beyond amazed by how easy you make it look. Its such a fabulous hairstyle and I wish I had the talent to do this. I barely comb my hair as it is
jadennichole (1 year ago)
Use a clarifying shampoo, once or twice a week to get the build up out. Baking soda will dry and damage more.
Arlene S (1 year ago)
LOVE this vintage look! So beautiful! The only thing I would comment on is to say you need to be sure to smooth the hair on top a little more with your brush, as you can see evidence of it having been teased. Even so, it looks gorgeous! Well done!
Hannah Hartley (1 year ago)
Gorgeous style, and a very informative video! Thank you!
Denise Herud (1 year ago)
Gorgeous! Love the details on getting the swoop! That's great to know no matter what style bc peeps like a bit of volume up front but the hair to bend at cheekbone level and swoop back before dropping down, and ur technique will b great to get that bend! Ur makeup super compliments this look💕💐
betty r (1 year ago)
Beautiful hair. I know heads will be turning. Thanks for the tutorials.
Carol Crottie (1 year ago)
You did a beautiful job! I remember my Mom wearing her hair in this style. I like to wear retro hair styles when I am “in the mood.” I know how to do the set because my Mom liked for me to set her hair for the weekends!

Her videos remind me of the 60’s

I always mess things up when I comb I think I need a softer brush
Harlie Quinn (1 year ago)
Victory do u have to use the same size rollers
Harlie Quinn (1 year ago)
Ok cool bout to try it right now
Miss Victory Violet (1 year ago)
For best results, yes. You can use slightly bigger ones on top and slightly smaller ones underneath if desired but I wouldnt use too much of a variation of sizes
Aria Borealis (1 year ago)
I have a very flat hairline, unlike yours which comes to a point at the front. Does the swoop thing still work on other hairlines or does it end up looking strange? Love this hairstyle and will probably try it anyways, thank you. 😊
Miss Victory Violet (1 year ago)
Yes of course - for most hairstyles, having a widows peak like mine hinders the ability over a more standard hairline
n.betty (1 year ago)
what a good video thanks!! very easy to follow : )
Evelin Silva (1 year ago)
Will this work with a bob? It's longer now down to my collar bone
Miss Victory Violet (1 year ago)
You could try this technique yes - If it's down to your collar bone then it's not too much shorter than what my length was in this video
Marie-Eve Prave (1 year ago)
Great great great tutorial!!! Thanks for the tips...can't wait for the Pageboy tutorial!!!!
Stephanie Holser (1 year ago)
What I find works well to eliminate the hairspray build-up is a spritz bottle of 90% isopropyl alcohol, 10% rose water. This works on wigs and real hair. The alcohol breaks down the hairspray bonds and revitalizes the chemicals so I recommend working with light sprays and moving quickly because it dries relatively fast. The rose water isn't strictly necessary, but I find it softens the acrid smell of the isopropyl, especially when used on real hair.
Joanna H (1 year ago)
I am new to vintage hairstyles absolutely IN LOVE. Pretty please do a pageboy tutorial soon?? Also, I live in a very humid environment and my curls frizz shortly after leaving the house and my hairspray gets mucky. Any advice to keep my style sleek?

My go-to method for removing extreme product buildup is to cover my hair in conditioner and leave on for an hour (give or take) before washing off. I mix my favourite conditioner with a little bit of water to make it runnier (not an issue if the one you use is already runny), apply to dry hair so it is completely saturated, then cover with a shower cap. I rinse off after an hour, but I've left it longer without issue. You just don't want it to dry out and crust up, which is what the shower cap is for. I have heavily dyed red hair and use an SLS/paraben/sulphate-free conditioner, and it doesn't strip the colour out of my hair and leaves it clean and soft.
Kim Kurtis (1 year ago)
Just did this tutorial for an event and it turned out wonderfully. Both the set and brush out videos were easy to follow. Thanks for being so thorough, I was able to go back and make sure I was doing each step properly. Cheers!
cynthia g (1 year ago)
It looked the best before you started making it flat by your pin side. Much better volume without making it flat. Just my opinion. I would have stopped there. Very Marilyn. Not so much when you kept combing top part down flat. :(

Back combing makes me cringe. I can't do that part
Lillian Love (1 year ago)
Amazing 💖 your techniques have definitely helped (though my fine hair doesn't behave quite so well!) xx
Alicia Chatterton (1 year ago)
For product buildup I actually use dawn dish soap. I figure if it's safe for animals it's safe for my hair. It is drying though so always follow up with a deep condition
GunsandRosewater (1 year ago)
You're so beautiful! I'm definitely going to attempt this foam roller set tonight!
Miss Victory Violet (1 year ago)
+GunsandRosewater good luck! 😘
Kimii Amaya (1 year ago)
I have to say this looks fabulous! I have long hair, and I know most of 1940s-50s hairstyles involved short hair, so I don't know how it would turn out for me. But this is a great tutorial, thanks!
Angie G (1 year ago)
Typically about how long does this take you to do ? I know it probably is taking you longer here since you are recording and doing a tutorial lol.
Miss Victory Violet (1 year ago)
It really depends. It can be anywhere between 10-25 minutes... sometimes it works better than others and some days I'm less worried about getting it 'perfect' x
Miss Joanna Jive (1 year ago)
Is there a particular name to your haircut? I want to get my hair cut like yours because the length is way better manageable for me and I can do these hairstyles way better.. curls will stay better and I can still do my ballroom hairdo's. But I don't realy now what to tell my hairdresser 🙊
Miss Joanna Jive (1 year ago)
Miss Victory Violet I already did (notification squad!) and took it to the hairdresser! My hair is so much more manageable now! Thanks for the tips!
Miss Victory Violet (1 year ago)
Watch my latest Ask Miss Victory Violet (Episode Two) for some info about the haircut! x
qwertybubbles (1 year ago)
i have been constantly coming back to this video so I can learn how to get this right, and I always learn where I went wrong! Very informative and will hopefully help when I start my new hairdressing course in the autumn! who says you can't learn new skills and start a new career at 26! keep up the good work Miss Victory Violet! :)
USCHI LOU (10 months ago)
26! That's way young 💗💗 Good on you love, I hope it is going well!
Miss Victory Violet (1 year ago)
Good luck my dear! <3
Josie Galaviz (1 year ago)
Thank you for this tutorial. I definitely learned something new. I can't wait to try it out. Foam rollers are my favorite method of curling.
Claire Hilton (1 year ago)
my favorite set/brush out hands down!! Thank you so much for such a detailed tutorial ❤
25stephym (1 year ago)
You make me feel so lazy. Lol. I look like a grenuda. You look beautiful.
jabbadal (2 years ago)
Fab tutorial thank you. Really useful tips. Just wanted to ask if you would protect your hair overnight after your brush out to make it last another day or two, or whether you would restart. Many thanks. :)
Miss Victory Violet (1 year ago)
I usually brush it out completely, re roll with sponge rollers dry, not adding any extra product and wrap with a scarf of Silke London turban x
Kolbie Peterson (2 years ago)
Can you spell out what that smoothing brush is called? I tried to Google one to find one online but I couldn't. "Pastiche" brush? Aagh!
Miss Victory Violet (1 year ago)
I think its Postiche? X
mechelle langley (2 years ago)
your  lovely and all but the amount of hairspray and teasing etc... is just not a very appealing and I don't think I would like to have my head full of that, there is a youtuber  I watch that u might want to get some tips from she has an effortless style to vintage hairstyles and they are gorgeous without so much product. hope didn't offend just tryin to give feedback and help.                         The Pinupup  Companion is the youtuber I mentioned hope u watch
spring (9 months ago)
Well, watch the other lady's channel. For those of us with hair that loses curl easily, these products and method are absolutely necessary. You don't need to tell an expert how to do her job!! I don't mean to offend you either. 🙂
Miss Victory Violet (2 years ago)
mechelle langley, I do sometimes do a more relaxed style but this tutorial was for a full classic brushout. If you want to create this style and KNOW it's going to last a entire day and night, then the back combing and hairspray is essential. I'm not making anyone do it, just showing my technique :-)
Thank you. I would love some tips on haircuts that work well for vintage styles. Lots of people don't have access to hairstylists who know what to do. What do we tell them? I mostly cut my own hair and I'm not quite sure how to do it best for curls.
SunshineMeli05 (2 years ago)
I love your videos. Could you do a lipstick tutorial?
VeganVintageGeek (2 years ago)
Where I live it is quite windy and what I do to keep my curls from being blown around is I use a thin hair net that matches my hair color to keep everything together. It works great only problem my hair does end up losing the curl if I do not reset it over night. And the hair net ends up less hidden. And the top of my head looks like I slicked it down into a 1920s-1930s bob. Which was not my intention. And no amount of back combing would bring it back to life. The ends of my hair wound up being frizzy and wavy after trying to back comb.
maia malanee (2 years ago)
My grandmother set her curls just like this (minus all the hairspray because she had natural curls) for years, but she had short, curly forehead bangs. That was back in the early 40's, but it's still a beautiful look!
Joy Stalians (2 years ago)
Hair goals! Thanks so much for this and the previous tutorial. I now know two mistakes I was making. Thanks!

What product do you use on your brows! It's so hard to find a color suitable for redheads.
Holly Parrish (10 months ago)
Coffee & the Classroom Auburn eyebrow pomade by Anastasia beverleyhills is great for red heads
Jessica Goodwin (2 years ago)
Thank you so much for giving so many tips, speaking slow enough that I could follow, and giving reasons why you are doing something and not just narrating. You're a sweet sweet lady that is an amazing hairdresser but also wants to share her styling tips with the world and not keep them to herself. I look forward to watching many more of your thorough tutorials in the future. Thanks again and keep up the great work!

Fantastic tutorial. This video is helping to streamline my whole sponge roller routine! Thank you
Manuela Tiefenbach (2 years ago)

Vintage Kitty (2 years ago)
Yes, page boy please. I just can't seem to master that hairstyle.
Kelly Breneman (2 years ago)
I can't wait to try this! So many great tips! ❤
Michelle de Carion (2 years ago)
I'm surprised you didn't actually brush through the hair for a normal "brush out". Do you always do it this way or is this just a variation?
Miss Victory Violet (2 years ago)
Michelle de Carion this is just a variation :-) it's to create a more curly look ❤️
Carmen Grima (2 years ago)
Fantastic video. Have learnt a lot. Just one question how do you keep the set for more than one day. Do you sponge roll again as I find my sets just go flat and only last one day. Thanks in advance
Miss Victory Violet (2 years ago)
Carmen Grima I actually brush everything out gently, back combing included and put the sponge rollers back in dry. You can try sleeping in your brush out but I find things get too squashed for my liking and prefer to just redo it each day x
Isabela Mantovani (2 years ago)
Ella, I have a serious frizz problem on my roots when I back comb, even after brush out it frizzes at some point? any pomade/advices? I loooooove your channel, so happy you can back on the tutorials! x
Valeri Oliva (2 years ago)
Toni Skotcher (2 years ago)
This was great! Thanks so much! I am looking forward to trying out a few of your tips tomorrow when I brush out.
Zhoratrope (2 years ago)
So I have an odd question; because my hair is so incredibly thin, I have to back comb like crazy. When it comes time to wash my hair its extremely difficult to get the tease out without ripping my hair out. Do you have any suggestions on how to prevent damaging my hair when removing the tease?
Zhoratrope (2 years ago)
Miss Victory Violet I have not. Usually because it's such a rats nest, I try to comb it before hand so I can wash it. But I'll have to give that a try! VLV will be a great testing time haha. Thanks for the tip!
Zhoratrope (2 years ago)
Isabela Mantovani I've never heard of that before. I'll look into it! Thanks. :)
Isabela Mantovani (2 years ago)
Zhoratrope those shine sprays on argan oil help me untease it before washing, have you tried?
Miss Victory Violet (2 years ago)
Zhoratrope I brush out the back combing when my conditioner is in! Have you tried that?x
Laura Lefko (2 years ago)
I literally just put my hair into sponge rollers tonight and was looking through your website while I rolled. Lo-and-behold, your videos popped up and published on the very same day! Wish I had found them before I rolled, I like your setting pattern but could never quite get mine to look the same. Your video and explanations are so clear and easy...definitely following these next time I roll! Lovely job, and I absolutely adore your accent. Really looking forward to your page-boy tutorial.
Normari Deleon (2 years ago)
what do you recommend for hair that is wavy to make this type of hair style ? how long does it take you everyday to do the whole process? so I can know about how much time I need to do this look ❤💜?
Normari Deleon (1 year ago)
Thank you 🖤
Miss Victory Violet (2 years ago)
My set takes me probably 20 mins and brushout between 15- 30 mins depending on what I'm doing and how well my hair is behaving
Normari Deleon (2 years ago)
I dress up vintage and I hope I can do a look like this for dapper day I want to meet you one day . are you going to go to dapper day in Orlando ?

Holly Davison (2 years ago)
Great video thank you!! I'm looking forward to giving this a go. My hair is quite fine, and there's a lot of it. So curls have a habit a falling out pretty quickly.. But I'm hoping with some practice, this method will work.. But if not... I've thought about getting a perm... or a body wave put through.. would you recommend that?
Kris Gschwend (2 years ago)
I love this. Thank you. ❤
Mrs. Deadly Nightshade (2 years ago)
Have you tried a vinegar rinse after you use baking soda? I get bad product build up too and i find baking soda and vinegar once in a while helps keep my hair cleaner
Mermaid (5 months ago)
Painted Faces by Fairy G vinegar actually balances out the pH of your hair after using baking soda and makes the hair shiny and smooth
Mrs. Deadly Nightshade baking soda to cut product build up is an old school hairstylist trick. I never used vinger as it can be very drying.
Kathy (1 year ago)
Try washing your hair with washing up liquid before shampooing and conditioning! :) x
Miss Victory Violet (2 years ago)
mutanicdecreeper yes I have, I've tried many things 😅 it's no where near strong enough for the build up I'm talking about 😜
