What's Up with Hair Rolls?

We’re all for sweet rolls … but when they’re in our tummies, not our hair! Lately, several stars have been sporting retro, pinup-inspired hairstyles, and while different, we can’t decide if we’re quite on board.

Katy Perry kicked off the trend at Berlin’s ECHO Awards in March, curling her then-blue bangs up over the top of her head. Demi Lovato followed suit last weekend, giving her long, pink-tinged blonde hair a bit of a front bun at X Factor auditions in North Carolina. And Thursday, P!nk did the same, punching up her black jumpsuit with a colorful rolled hairstyle and dangly earrings.

We’re all for trying something new — fashion is supposed to be fun! — but are these retro hairstyles an old trend we’re ready to retry — or should they stay in the style vault? And why are we suddenly so hungry? Tell us: Would you try a hair roll?

Hmmmm, not sure! I think Katie is the only one who really pulls it off there…

I actually don’t like any of these people, so my opinion could be negative based on that alone. I like pin-curls, but not these rolls.

There are definitely a variety of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to deliver up. I provide the ideas above as general inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you deliver up the place a very powerful factor will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around things like that, however I’m positive that your job is clearly recognized as a good game. Both girls and boys feel the impression of only a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

I am in my twenties and sgilne and now I am just inspired! And I must say you make for a very compelling argument! But finances might not be all the easy thing for someone in their twenties.
