The rolled bang look was made popular by Bettie Page in the 1950s. It quickly became a classic look portrayed by pin-up models. This look has regained popularity. It is usually done by women that do not have fringe by rolling the hair up and pinning it above the eyebrows but women with fringe can replicate the look by curling hair tightly with a curling iron. Even short fringe can be curled into a roll if a smaller curling iron is used. These short rolled fringe were seen on pin-up models as well as the wider, longer fringe.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Curling iron
Wash your hair and dry it with a blow dryer so the fringe are smooth and straight down towards your eyebrows.
Curl your fringe with a hot curling iron in pieces, making tight rolls across the forehead. Roll the curling iron as tight to your scalp as possible without burning yourself. This will reduce the chances of having a crease in the hair at your scalp.
Repeat the curls as necessary to make them uniform and roll-like. The ends of the fringe should tuck up into the roll. You will need a smaller curling iron barrel for short fringe. Use the largest barrel you can for the length of fringe you have.
Spray hairspray across your fringe and use your fingers to reshape the fringe as the hairspray sets.
