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.

I Do! A Guide To Pinup’s Bridal Services

We know it sounds early, but wedding season is already gearing up! We’ve been getting calls for brides setting the dates for their hair and makeup services, so we thought we would take a moment to explain a little further what services we offer for brides, and bridal parties.

First off, with our bridal hair services, we always include a trial run, for every client. Why is a trial run necessary? It helps with ease of mind not only for the bride but also for the stylist! We’re all very seasoned in a wide variety of updo styling, from the classic Pinup sets, to the artistic and avant-garde, to loose beachy styles, and everything in between. Since all hair types and textures are unique, it’s important for us to know how cooperative your hair will be with your desired style, and the best products and tools to use, insuring your hair will hold up throughout the day and night! When a bride leaves after her trial run, she can let us know if the style held up or not, so that we can easily adjust our approach for her wedding day as needed.
