Redhead Pin Up Hairstyle with Long Red Hair, Soft Curls and Betty Bangs How-To
Oh la la fancy schmancy Nancy! I had just dyed my hair and trimmed my bangs (something I have to do soon again!) so I also took the time to do a pretty pinup hairdo, too. For tutorials I like on the web on how to trim your own Bettie Bangs, see my previous posts.
Preparing Hair for Curling
This takes a medium level of time to do. It's not a quick bun and bangs, like I often do on work days, but it doesn't take hours! I'd say about 20 minutes. My hair is about medium thickness and body. It may take less or more time to do depending on how your hair is.
First I blew it dry with the hair dryer, using my usual products: I use a leave-in conditioner, the pomade on the tips, plus a light gel all over. I part my hair in the middle and comb through it all then blow it out.

Curling Bettie Bangs
At medium heat level, I curl each side. Then I do the top layer of the middle part of my bangs. Then the bottom layer -- CAUTION doing this though! Be careful not to burn your forehead. (Totally have done that because I'm a serious klutz. After that, I brush out the hard curls of the bangs with a thin round hair brush, then pat into that famous U-Shape and spray.
When it's all done, I spray again. I do not brush or comb it out. I might use my finger to gently let the curls loosen but mostly they loosen by me walking around and being a human and not a pin up bot. Hahaha. Anyway, it's a really pretty hairstyle and one I wear when I have the luxury of time, which isn't often.
