The stylish ladies of the early and mid-20th century define for us now what the epitome of ladylike grace should be. My love for the enduring beauty of the flapper of the 1920s, the art deco bombshell of the 1930s, the pin-up of the 1940s, the rockabilly of the 1950s, and the mod of the 1960s is reflected in everything I create. Rita Hayworth was my first inspiration. In the movie Cover Girl, from the ‘40s, she wore a pompadour hairstyle that inspired the cover look for the book Vintage Hairstyling. Hayworth also inspired the look of one of the models on the cover of Retro Makeup. Women from the Golden Age of Hollywood like Grace Kelly in the ‘50s and Audrey Hepburn in the ‘60s were the inspiration for looks from Create Vintage-Inspired Wedding Hairstyles.
Along with these books, I have also written special tutorial booklets to go with our hairstyling tools, the Sculpture Pin Curl Tool and the Rockin’ Rollers. It is very important to me that customers have all of the information needed to make using them fun and successful.
Along with everything you can find here on the site to help with your beauty needs, I also teach vintage hair and makeup classes! Check out the workshops page to see the current schedule. To get notifications of new workshops, you can either sign-up for our newsletter, like us on Facebook, or add the Bobby Pin Blog to your RSS feed. If you want to request a class be hosted at your location, please drop me a line on our contact form! I am always looking for new places to visit and new vintage lovers to meet.
