The 1940s pinup look is an all time classic. With one side kept tucked behind the ear, while the other tumbles down the face frame in romantic spirals of soft curl, it creates beautiful asymmetry. Graceful and elegant, this is a great look for urbane parties. How does one create it? Senior Stylist at ARROJO studio, NYC, Cheryl Fazio , styled this look as part of her fashion week preparation. Now she shares her tricks with us…
Step: Prep hair with refinish dry shampoo to create volume, bulk and texture.
Step: Create a deep side part. Use the outside arch of eyebrow as guide. Clip the short side of the part back and out of the way.
Step: On the long side, use 4-6 big velcro rollers. Wind large sections of hair onto each roller and mist with holding spray.
Step: Allow to set and unwind rollers.
Step: Use hair gel along the hairline to ensure the flipped fringe has lots of hold, without crispiness.
Step: Unclip the short side, but keep it tucked away. Use bobby pins if needed.
Step: Use hands to mold hair into tumbling ‘S’ shapes.
