Pin Up Girl Hair: Katy Perry-inspired

Katy Perry hair

In spring 2011 rollers and a curling iron will get red-hotter more than ever. Why? Because in this season a pin up girl style gets very very popular! Full-volume waves are complemented with big wavy bangs which means curling, styling and seducing.

as a Pin Up Girl

Luxurious waves still inspire designers who find them particularly feminine. Celebrities under the stylish leadership of our favourite California Gurl Katy Perry, have added a rolled fringe to their long wavy layers for a sultry retro look. The seductive 40’s-inspired hairstyle goes perfectly with Katy Perry’s pin up girl looks. See the above photo of her bold, slightly rolled under bangs and smooth roots that offset Katy Perry’s wavy and volumized ends.

Yes it’s seductive, but how to achieve such a trendy spring 2011 hairstyle? Volumize your locks with a roller set as an alternative to curling irons. They’re quick, simple and you’re hands-free to do as you please while they cool. What’s more, rollers will not pull or damage delicate hair, they give instant volume to your tresses without the hassle of blow-drying.

How to achieve the luxurious waves inspired by the retro pin up girls?

Step 1: Using fingers, distribute a dollop of mousse onto towel-dried hair. Blow dry your hair and warm the roller set. Roll the hair backwards, and hold the hot roller in a vertical position. This rolling method creates fine, flowing waves. Alternatively, run a flat iron over your bangs and slightly roll the ends under for a less show-stopping look.

Step 2: Comb your brow-length fringe from the top of your head. Use a paddle brush to straighten it and then wrap around hot curlers or a large curling iron. Mist with styling spray.

Step 3: Run your fingers through your hair (except your fringe) to break up the curls. And voila! Welcome a modern pin up girl!

Good luck!
