DIY Hair: Modern Rolls

Anti-vintage.

To keep this look contemporary, it is important to make it look home done, giving the rolls a loose feel. But first, preparation.

Step 1: Shampoo the hair with KMS California Hair Play Texture Shampoo and condition with KMS California Hair Play Makeover Spray.

Step 2: Towel dry the hair and spray with KMS California Curl Up Bounce Back Spray. Work this into the hair to encourage texture and curl.

Step 3: Flip hair upside down and blow-dry using a diffuser. With your hands, scrunch dry the hair to encourage as much volume and curl as possible. 

Step 4: When almost dry, flip hair back up and apply a light spray of KMS California Curl Up Bounce Back Spray onto the top layers of hair and push into place. Let the hair dry naturally — this helps set the texture.

Step 5: Take a section from the part down to front of the ear and wrap around your finger into a roll. Pin up high on the sides with a couple of bobby pins at the base area. 

Another way to achieve the look is to wrap the hair around some padding (available online), roll up, and pin at the base area with some bobby pins. I have used a hair-piece rolled up just to fill out the roll. 

Step 6: Spray lightly with KMS California Hair Stay Medium Hold Spray to hold.
