Bettie Page - A classic vintage hairstyle!

Bettie Page was a famous and controversial model from the 1950's.  She is now remembered for her iconic hairstyle with her short fluffy fringe (bangs).

In the vintage and rockabilly scene many girls rock the Bettie bangs!
If you decide to go for the chop when you go to the hairdressers you need to ask for a short u shape fringe (bangs).

When styling this short fringe I use a curling tong to curl under the ends and then comb through.

 Here are my Bettie bangs

Alternatively if you don't want to cut your hair but you'd still like to have this look sometimes you can try a "bumper bang" / faux bang style.

This is where you take the front your hair and curl it under either with pin curls, rollers or curling tongs. Then back comb underneath and brush it into a forward roll. Now  pin into place at the sides tucking the pins in at the sides.

Here is a fantastic tutorial for the bumper bang hairstyle by the fabulous Jenn over at A Vintage Vanity!

I hope this has been helpful in you deciding on this style!
Thanks for reading,
