Bettie Page Bangs!

February 22, 2011

I have been querying amongst other things whether or not to go for the chop for a little while now so decided it best to have a test run. Below are a few pictures of my “fringe” though I’ll invariably feel the need to re-do before heading to work this evening. Yesterday’s attempt I must say was a darn sight better but of course as is always the case without a resultant photograph! So here are a few snaps including my (perhaps not entirely successful) ‘homage’ to the Queen of the Bang, Bettie Page.

If you’re wanting to try this at home I suggest finding yourself a hair foundation (generally a net sausage kind of affair, or you could cut up a ‘doughnut’ if need be), which you can unpick, unroll and sew to an adequate size; then selecting the front section of hair you want to use in order to make your ‘fringe’, sectioning neatly up top with a comb, simply hold the foundation at the ends of the hair and begin rolling under until you reach the position you want your ‘fringe’ to be in. Pin either end (can be tricky but not impossible), pinning into the foundation for neatness. Today I simply went for a half ponytail and a bow but this look can be set off wonderfully with pin curls or victory rolls pinned close to the hairline and finished with flowers or jewels.

Happy banging 😉
