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.

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. >.<
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. :)
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 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!
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!
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💕💐
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!
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. 😊
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.
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.
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!
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. :(
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 🙊
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! :)
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. :)
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
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. 🙂
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 :-)
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.
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.
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!
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!
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
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
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?
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!
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.
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 ? I live in Orlando and I wish I would of meet you when you came to Orlando but I love everything vintage you are my vintage inspiration and I wish I can meet you one day 💜💜❤
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?
