Get a Confidence a Boost with a New Hairstyle

As much as we all would like to believe that we don’t judge a book by its cover, the reality is that to a certain extent, all of us do.  And that includes our own self-image. How you perceive yourself is a part of your own personal confidence and it affects how you project yourself, which in turn has a direct effect on how others perceive you.

Think about it, when we are not feeing very sexy, beautiful, or plain old happy, we have a hard time convincing others that we are any of those things.  Many times, a new hairstyle, make over or new outfit can be the ticket to your show of “I am Wonderful”, where you are the star.

What Makes it a Pinup Hairstyle?

So you keep noticing Hollywood glam queens like Katy Perry, Scarlett Johansson, Georgia May Jagger, and Taylor Swift with their show stopping, high volume, classic Hollywood icon do’s?  If you want to achieve that ultra-glam look for yourself, remember, these new Hollywood glam queens are only re-inventing the classic glam styles inspired by the originals such as Jean Harlow, Marilyn Monroe, Jane Wyman, Dorothy Hart from the 1930’s to the 1950’s.

So what exactly qualifies as a “Pinup Do”?  Think flapper-inspired, vibrant tints and dramatic curls for an authentic pinup hairstyle. A Veronica Lake inspired mane with pin curl bangs. High-rise up dos with headbands, big volume retro bee hives, glossy side swept manes. Pinups do’s look neat and sleek with fly aways controlled. You will see retro finger waves, and a feathered head piece to set it off. Voluminous up-dos with sequined, silver or gold splashes of hair accessories and side swept retro waves set off with glam clips.
