A pin-up girl is a model whose mass-produced photos are widely appealing and become a part of the popular culture of the time.
Betty Grable was the first pin-up girl. Her picture was a favorite of GIs stationed overseas who were homesick for their lovers. The term pin-up is used because the pictures were pinned up on walls or in lockers where they could be looked at regularly.
Vintage hair ornaments
Betty Grable’s blonde hair in the famous 1943 shot consisted of curls piled up on top of her head in a stylish up do. An independent jeweler offers beautiful vintage hair accessories that would look fabulous anytime but particularly if you decide to channel Betty Grable in her memorable World War II pin-up pose.
Veronica Lake, the actress, was famous for her peek-a-boo hairstyle that covered one eye. Once again, you can’t have to-die-for hair if it is not healthy and in condition, so brush your 100 strokes religiously every day, using a quality hairbrush from Perfumania to keep your tresses looking sensational.
Colorful scarves and wraps
We can’t forget Rosie the Riveter, who was the symbol for women who entered the workforce during World War II when all of the manpower (the men!) was sent overseas. Rosie worked in a factory and her hair was always covered with a scarf. The Peruvian Collection has some very cool looking scarves and headwraps that you can wear, and not because you are working in a factory but just because you want to.
