Five ways to achieve fabulous Pinup Hair

For years I admired beautiful hairstyles that I never thought I could achieve. The soft waves and curls of Marilyn Monroe's blonde locks, Jane Russell's fabulous full sideswept look and Bettie Grable's height-enhancing poodle style were styles that I dearly loved but my absolute favourites were the perfect Victory rolls and inventive up-do's of the 1940s. They made me envious and a bit sad about my lack of skill as every time I tried to do something interesting my stubborn, heavy, thick and wavy hair would fall out of the style within an hour.

Lady A Broad

Internationally published pinup model, graphic designer, wife, mother, fellow crazy bunny lady and winner of Australian and International pinup titles – Lady A Broad is a force to be reckoned with! She is also one of the most humble and genuinely lovely people I have had the pleasure of meeting.
