pinup and victory rolls

Pin up girls were originally used in advertisements, where the pages of magazines and business cards could be “pinned” up and enjoyed, while promoting something.

6 styles: burlesque, bombshell, rockabella, Holywood glam, classic vintage.

Most important parts of the pinup hairstyle: plan the hairstyle, make perfect base with waves/curls, teasing, clear surfaces.

Most important part of victory rolls: partening, teasing hard, pin  the hair with bobbypins down tight (fix the section not moving), clear the surface then spray it, shape the roll in cone shape (tight at the ends, nice open rolls in front).

“Unwritten” rules of victory rolls: when you use same size rolls it can be the side`s of the head, if two rolls asymmetric they HAVE TO touch and close to be each other. Always hide the scalp, never shows the partening. If you do perfect teasing and shaping, maximum 3 bobbypins are enough to pin, hide them well.

finger and marcell waves

A finger wave is a method of setting hair into waves (curls) that was popular in the 1920s and 1930s and again in the late 1990s in North America and Europe.

The process involved pinching the hair between the fingers and combing the hair in alternating directions to make an "S" shape wave.

The difference between finger waves and marcel waves: Finger waving differs from marcel waving in that there are no heated irons used on the hair.

Steps in finger waves: make the hair wet, push down the hair with the middle finger, comb the hair to left or right direction then push up, pinch it with your point finger, then set it with hair clips. Important too the meeting sections between two horizontal sections. Let is dry and then open.

Steps with marcel waves: make narrow horizontal sections, curl it with flatning iron or curler and pin the section on the same direction, the next under section is the opposite direction, spray it and let it cool down, open the pins and comb the hair together, push the middle finger and comb the hair to the wave direction, pin with hair clips, set it with hairspray.

French twist

A French twist is a common "updohair styling technique. It is created by gathering the hair in one hand and twisting the hair upwards until it turns in on itself against the head. It is then secured with barrettescombshair sticks and/or hairpins. It was popular from the late 1950s through the early 1970s.

Most important steps: comb the hair well, pin the hair in the middle at the back side with the X pinning technique, tease a bit, roll the hair in cone (open at the top and tight the bottom) or banana (tight at top and bottom bigger in the middle) shape, then pin it inside and the outer surface.
