Sharon Blain's tutorial is a horizontal roll reflective of a 1940's Victory style encompassing beautiful placement under the parietal ridge and occipital bone to compliment the bone structure. A slipped low placed halo of hair is then undone for a modern more relaxed feel. This technique references and spans a multitude of eras and trends for a modern and fresh update.
