It’s another crazy hair tutorial featuring Taeyang’s hair from Monster! Well, kind of. Well, not really. I’m not doing the kimbap/mickey mouse hair style as much the victory roll style from the 1940s, but I’d like to believe Taeyang’s hair stylist from Monster was channeling the 1940s into Taeyang’s hairstyle.

I see no difference

I’ve really gone crazy for the hairstyles of the 1940s lately, hence by baby bangs that are all round or v-shaped at the front. When my bangs are to long, I just slick them back under a bandana, and when my hair is too greasy/has funny waves I just roll my hair up into these simple victory rolls. For today, I’m just showing you how to make two giant buns which are actually much more difficult than doing tiny ones, and I didn’t realize it until AFTER I filmed it, so I feel kind of bad for starting off with this tutorial. Actually, I’m doubly disappointed because I shouldn’t have done this particular look on freshly washed hair. It is really difficult to work with freshly washed hair in general and it was even more difficult to keep all the fly away hairs in place. GRUMBLE FACE. I think the most difficult part of this style is keeping a grip on that initial end piece of hair. The first time I did this, my end piece wouldn’t stay tucked down and the curl would just unfurl. So, the hardest part is maintaining a tight grip on the end hair while keeping your hair pulled straight so that the roll stays tight too. I think it’s just easier to try it and just see what I’m talking about, it’s kind of hard to describe in words.

I’d like to add that you can roll your hair in two different directions and it will create a different look. In this video I’m rolling my hair downwards and towards my face, so I can see the roll as it’s forming. But more frequently, I actually roll my hair under, which means I’m rolling downwards the exact same way, but I can’t see the roll as it’s happening. If you want to create a roll which shows off the inside of the roll so that you can see a spiral curl, you can do the same thing I did in this tutorial but instead of putting a bobby pin through all the pieces of folded hair, you flatten the roll at the end. Then, still holding it tightly, use bobby pins to pin the roll apart and show off all the layers inside. Then HAAAIIRSPRAY!!! SO MUCH HAIRSPRAY! CHOKE ON HUGE AMOUNTS OF HAIRSPRAY! BUT IT’S SO NECESSARY!

And my last thought, these rolls are AWESOME for creating natural curls in semi-wet hair. When I don’t have time to dry and style my hair, I do these rolls and by the end of the day when you take your rolls out, you’ll have big puffy natural curls. Soft and bouncy HAAAAAAAAIR! So even though I wasn’t happy with the fly away strands, I had lovely natural curls the next day and I was able to wear my hair down with a cute bow! Let me know if any of you try this hairstyle! I saw a couple pictures on tumblr after my simple cat eyeliner tutorial and I was really happy!^^

  1. Oooh cool! I like your bandana :D

  2. My hair is too long for this kind of hairdo. But I totally agree with Martina, hairstyles do come out better with dirty greasy hair. lol!

  3. My hair is too short :( I am trying to grow it out though.

  4. but it looks prettier when the hair is washed… awesome tutorial! ^__^

    ♥♥ ♥ ♥

  5. simon you have SO dug your own grave with that description srsly – u- i mean so because now we all want to see that make up tutorial of yours happening BDDDD

  6. Awesome…so cute…especially on YOU! Thanks!

  7. Martina I just discovered your “beauty” tutorials recently, even though I always checked the Eyk videos… You rock and we have similar style, so THANKS for these videozzzzzzz!!! ^_^

  8. *runs off to try this* onwards!! XD

  9. I dont know why but i thought of Princess Leia and her Cinnamon Roll looking hair when Martina was done rolling her hair ahah. All in all very cute Martina :]

  10. I have super long hair (over 30 inches worth!) and my hair ended up looking like minnie mouse ears…which was awesome.

  11. “when you don’t wanna shower, you can still look cute”

    lol. this is going on my wall…

  12. Martina, i love your references ❤

  13. So now.. everybody could do the hairstyle of Taeyang!!!
    TAKE THAT YG !!!

  14. i’ve seen a style called “suicide roll” , and i’m guessing they’re all from the same era of pin-up girl hair styles, just the fact that its one large roll at the center of your hair.

    definitely going to give these a try! will you be showing us how to get sailor chibi buns too? can’t wait for that tutorial ^^!

  15. Guise, is anyone else noticing a trend of excessive jokes on Taeyang?????

  16. this was great!! I love watching to see how you do your hair, and then you are hilarious as well. I was LOLing when you talked about looking like a dinosaur.. XD

  17. “I’ma do a makeup tutorial one of these days. It’s gonna be 20 seconds long. 8 second opening credits. 2 seconds of me saying “SHUT UP” and then 10 seconds closing credits” bwahahahahahha oh my god Simon DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i would freakin’ love that!!!!

  18. I think I may just do some two strand twists first and then try the rolls. I think that if I did it loose my hair would get über poufy. When I do twist outs it is like my hair ate my head.

  19. No FREAKING WAY!!!! Seriously? I heard that they were making another but thought it was just going to be like a continuance of the series/ another series if you know what I mean.

    *happily skips off to the googles and internets to find more information!*

    • Why am I not surprised that you would respond to this. I am very intrigued by this. So it is a reboot. Fascinating.

      • LOL. Maybe cause we were just talking about it not too long ago? I’m still looking for more information but from what I’ve gather in my all of 5 minutes looking, it looks like international fans may be able to watch it online and it will possibly have subtitles in multiple languages. Nothing clear cut yet.

        …SOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!

  20. Thanks! Lol my arms got tired of holding up my hair because I redid it lots of times, and my hair is pretty long. But it can be done! ^o^

  21. My hair’s too long for this.. ._. It’s hard to do really anything with it but I don’t want to cut it.. *sigh* Does anyone have some suggestions for long hair? My hair reaches for the lower back area, (almost touching my butt).

  22. Ahahaha!

    “Martina shows you how she does her hair thingies that make her look like what Taeyang would look like if he was a white lady…just not shirtless all the time. That would be pornoz and we’d be banned from YouTube. I’m sure there’s a more technical term for her hair thingies, but I’m a man, dammit, and I’ve got no clue what this is all about. I just do the uploading of the videos and the writing of these description boxes. I don’t even know what to do with these tags below. What do I write? Hair? Hair Style? Hair Guru? What the eff, yo? Why do I always get stuck with this job. I’ma do a makeup tutorial one of these days. It’s gonna be 20 seconds long. 8 second opening credits. 2 seconds of me saying “SHUT UP” and then 10 seconds closing credits. 10 million views there. It’s gonna be a hit.”

  23. ohhh!!! i do these for pinning my hair under my wigs for cosplay (but on a smaller scale!). The curls it gives you after are wonderful!!!

  24. martina you should totally do stuff like this more often ! >_< love your style :)

  25. i think it kind of looks like puppy dog ears :3

  26. must wait for hair to grow……. why did i ever cut it off???? oh yeah cuz that was before eyk dominated my life X(

  27. It doesn’t work for me (even greasy hair) it just keeps going ( I have really fin hair could that be why??)

  28. You guise misspelled gazillion in Martina’s loud and booming ‘A GAZZILIONN BOBBY PINS’

  29. I would have never thought that I had to say something like that but my hair is actually too long for this style.. !! – . -”
    I tried it but when I put my hair straight up I can’t reach the tips of my hair. There are like 10 cm hanging down and I just can’t reach the end even if I try..

  30. Woah! Definitely gonna try that one out in the near future! THANKS A LOT LOT LOT! ♥

  31. DONE!!!!!!!!!. Its a success. YAAAAYYY. Thank you fashion guru nasty Martina

  32. O MY GOD. I wanted THIS tutorial honestly. LOVE YOU MARTINAAAAAAA. <3 <3
