In spring 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.
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 photo of her bold, slightly rolled under bangs and smooth roots that offset Katy Perry's wavy and volumized ends.
Pin-up girl hairstyles were popular in the 1940s and 1950s and were characterized by their classic, glamorous, and feminine look. They typically featured soft waves, curls, and rolls that were often styled into intricate updos.
Some of the key elements of a pin-up girl hairstyle include:
Victory Rolls: Victory Rolls are a classic pin-up girl hairstyle that involve rolling sections of hair towards the face and securing them to the head, creating a “v” shape. They were often worn on either side of the head, framing the face.
Waves and curls: Soft, romantic waves and curls were also a common feature of pin-up girl hairstyles. Women would often use hot rollers or curling irons to achieve these curls, and then brush them out to create a softer, more natural look.
Hair accessories: Pin-up girl hairstyles often incorporated hair accessories such as bandanas, hair scarves, and flowers. These accessories were used to add a pop of colour or to help hold the hair in place.
Updos: Many pin-up girl hairstyles were styled into elaborate updos, such as the classic Gibson roll or the chignon. These styles were often adorned with flowers or other accessories.
All in all, pin-up girl hairstyles were characterized by their romantic, feminine, and glamorous look, featuring soft waves, curls, and intricate updos, along with the use of hair accessories to add interest and colour.
How to achieve the luxurious waves inspired by the retro pin up girls?
Yes it's seductive, but how to achieve such a trendy 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.
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!
