Bettie Page Reveals All is a documentary about the life of Bettie Page, narrated by Bettie herself! The Pin-Up party is a 21+ bash featuring a pin-up style red carpet, vintage cocktail specials and a burlesque show in-theater before the movie. Learn more about the event!
Our first stop for Bettie Page glamour was Blast Blow Dry Bar (Level 1, South) to get our roll on… Victory Rolls that is! This glamorous ‘do may seem advanced, but we’ve provided an easy step-by-step to achieve the ultimate pin-up staple.
Pictures are worth a thousand words but sometimes you just need the deets. Here they are:
Step 1: In large sections, use a curling iron to curl your hair towards your face.
Step 2: After each curl, immediately roll the curl back up around a velcro roller to let cool.
Step 3: When cooled, remove velcro rollers and gently comb through curls.
Step 4: Divide the hair framing your face into three sections (left, right and top) and pin separately. Gently tease each section.
Step 5: Using the curl as a guide, curl the hair away from your face to form the roll.
Step 6: When you achieve your desired shape, use bobby pins to keep it in place. Repeat with other side.
Step 7: Tease and roll the top section, then gather the roll in one hand. Tilt the roll to one side, to show off the curl.
Step 8: Once you’ve achieved your desired shape and height, pin it and spray the whole look with plenty of hair spray.
After our appointment at Blast Blow Dry Bar we went right upstairs to the Bettie Page Store (Level 2, South). Whether you’re attending tonight’s Pin-Up Party or wanting to make a splash at your next holiday party, Bettie Page has truly unique and ridiculously flattering styles to make any woman feel like a bombshell.
