Special Report: The Suicide Roll!!!

Okay, dolls! Before I start, please be advised that I will be away due to a medical emergency, but I'll come home to y'all Wednesday with some more stuff. Love y'all!
This hairstyle, the suicide roll, is basically just one big victory roll. Amy Heidemann of Karmin, Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera, and Demi Lovato have rocked this style and I found a tutorial by Glitter Sends The Gleam, and it's detailed! Hm... maybe I oughtta give it a go.

YOU WILL NEED:
- Comb
– Mousse
– Bobby Pins
– Hairspray
STEP ONE
Section off the front section of hair, what would be the “bangs”. Basically as wide as the bones of your forehead, and three inches back. Comb them forward. Make sure they are centered. Use the tail of the comb to clean up the lines.
STEP TWO
Gather the rest of your hair in a ponytail or bun — any way that it is out of the way!
STEP THREE
Rub a quarter-size dollop of mousse between your hands and run it sparingly through the section of hair. It shouldn’t be goopy or wet, but the flyaways should be firmly reigned in!
STEP FOUR
As you are running the mousse through your hair, use your fingers to scrape the hair to one side — whichever side your hair tends to part is easiest.
STEP FIVE
Wrap the tip of the section of hair around two fingers as though beginning a pin curl, and roll it up, not letting any hair escape. This can be tough if you have distinct layers, as I do, but if you can’t get it all to curl together, apply some more mousse to the tip.
STEP SIX
Turn the curl in the direction of the cowlick as you roll it up, so that it resembles a flat pincurl as opposed to one that stands up.
STEP SEVEN
Pin the pincurl in place. I used about three bobby pins. Make sure to hide them underneath the hair. The goal is to pin the curl to your hairline so that it stays in place. Fiddle with it a little, roll it up tighter, make it in the center of your forehead, catch any flyaways. You do not need to pin the outside of the curl, the next step will take care of that…
STEP EIGHT
Spray the crap out of it! I prefer using a non-aerosol spray, but both work. Spray directly on the curl, flattening it to your forehead with your hands. No one’s going to be touching it and it needs to stay in place, so don’t be afraid to really spray that sucker.
STEP NINE
Let the rest of your hair down, and style it as you like. It looks best curled, and you can do multiple things with it, but I personally like it best with a high curly ponytail.
