2. Roll 1

Take the back section of the bangs. Use a hair straightener and clasp it as close to the roots as possible.

Pull the hair upwards with the straightener.

Rolling bangs

Place a toilet paper roll behind that section of hair and wrap the hair over and around the roll.

Use a clip to hold the hair and toilet paper roll in place.

3. Roll 2

Take the front section of the bangs and use a straightener, getting as close as possible to the roots.

Pull the straightener down and tuck a second toilet paper roll underneath the hair, between the hair and your forehead.

Wrap the hair around the roll and secure it with a clip.

4. Set and release

The longer you leave the rolls in, the better your results will be.

Sleeping with them overnight is ideal.

You can also spray them with hairspray for a longer and stronger hold.

    When I was a teenager in the 60s, we used empty frozen orange juice cans! Now we have large rollers.
