Pin up hair: Try this hairstyle to create a quirky and unique look

Look like the beautiful girls of the ‘40s and ‘50s by trying the pin up hair. Read on to learn how to create this hairstyle.

Running out of hair ideas? Why don’t you get inspiration from past decades? Just go through your mom’s old photo albums, and you’ll see how women wore their hair. The ‘40s and ‘50s can be a rich source of hair pegs. Rock one of the most popular hairstyles back then: the pin up hair. Here’s how to do it.


Start strong

Wash your hair with Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo to make it soft, easy to style, and fragrant. Then, use DOVE Intense Repair Conditioner to help make your hair strong and protect it from future damage.




Protect from heat

Spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your hair to guard it against heat damage. Don’t forget to do this every time you’re about to use heated styling tools.





Put your bangs in front of your face to separate it from the rest of your hair. Tie the rest of your hair into a high ponytail. Then, curl your bangs using a curling iron.


Spray and tease

Hold your bangs and spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on it, then tease it using a tail comb to add a bit of volume.



Spray on your brush

Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on your brush as well, so you can smoothen out your hair and get rid of frizz.



Pin it

Roll down your bangs to put the curl in front of your face. Then, pin the ends of your bangs at the side of your head to keep your curled fringe in place.


Put your hair up

Curl the ends of your ponytail, then pin them near your crown to create a textured updo.


Put your scarf on

Fold your scarf into a triangle and fold the end down. Then, wrap the scarf around your hair. Make sure that it doesn’t touch your bangs. Wrap the scarf from under your hair up, then tie it into a bow on top of your head.


It's party time!

If you want to try a different party look, go for pin up hair. This can add a quirky, vintage touch to a basic get-up. You can also go for this ‘do if sleek hairstyles aren’t working (especially if your hair is being uncooperative). With your hair pinned up and topped with a cute scarf or bandanna, no one would notice what a bad hair day you’re having.
