Since I got my hair bleached, I've been experimenting with more hairstyles lately. (^^) With Pin-up style being a trend this S/S 2014 as seen on Vivi and Emoda, it's about time I try out the style. I've always had a soft spot for vintage styles and items and I was first introduced to pin-up style back when they were showing ANTM cycle 5 on my local TV. Seeing the corsets, socks and hairstyles, I instantly fell in love with this style which I view as more of an art.
Then there's me, with the modern take of this pin-up style. Fashion trends nowadays are pretty much recycling old trends by picking up bits and pieces here and there and incorporating them into new styles. Trust me, if you ask your parents, they'll tell you so. ;)
What I wore was a casual street style loose top and leather shorts matched with gold spikes necklace and a faux red leather watch. My makeup was done in a similar way to my previous tutorial but my hair I styled it in a rather pin-up look.
All I used was a simple travel hair straightener which is about 2 1/2 inch in length and 1/2 inch in width. Just simple curling technique done on my fringe and I ran through my fingers through the curls and slightly style them. One thing to note is that you want to separate your fringe into 3 sections, top, middle and bottom and curl them in any direction for that messy curls look. Hairspray is optional, but with my bleached hair, I left it just like that for the whole night and it remains the same still when I got home. As for the remaining hair, I pulled them back into a lose ponytail and wrapped the elastic band with a piece of my hair. I also pulled out several strands of my hair and curled them for a softer look.
Initially I got my inspiration from the popular Korean permed fringe hairstyle and I used that idea for this look. It's a versatile look, you can wear it as I did or you can pop a beanie or a snapback and it looks really cute as well. Alternatively if you like it a little more pin-up you can add a bandana as well. It's so easy and it took me less than 15 minutes to get it done! Very cute and fun and you might be grabbing some attention with your hair as well, so I hope you'd try it out! :D Thanks for reading~!
