How To Create A Pin Up Hair Style Using Hot Rollers

How to pin up hair

When I first started this blog I did a few pictorial DIYs on how I set my hair to achieve a 1950s pin up style. It’s been a few years and I thought I would update the tutorials with a how-to video. I decided to have almost no editing so you could see exactly how long it takes me to set my hair, and then how long it takes to complete the look after the curlers have cooled down. I believe the video runs at around 10 minutes, which is pretty good for a hot set, if you ask me. I also wanted to mention that in the video I use a travel set of curlers, but I used a tip I learned from Miss Dita and purchased two sets and then switched the larger rolls for smaller ones. So the size of the rollers in the video are all the same and they are all small. Hope you enjoy it!

  1. I watched this terrific video on Youtube a little earlier today and thoroughly enjoyed it. I love the minimal editing as it really paints a clear picture of the time (which isn’t that long at all) that it takes you to achieve this beautiful hairstyle. Wonderful job – I hope you’ll share more hair howtos with us in the future.

    I picked up a set of vintage curlers a while back, but I haven’t used them yet. Now I can’t wait to try them :)

    Loved this tutorial – your videos are all so good!

    My hair is very much like yours. I gave up trying to curl it years ago and embraced the straight…lol… But if I were to do something like this, I wonder how long it would last? How long does your set last?

    Fantastic video! Great tip on using 2 sets of rollers and using only the smaller ones. I love setting my hair with hot rollers….super fast and easy in the AM!

  5. Great video! I love hot sets as they are so quick and easy compared to pin curling overnight.

    Wonderful video! I love using hot rollers, unfortunately my hair doesn’t do well with them. I do a wet set. Here’s the link to my video if you want to check it out! 1 of 2

    I love your blog! <3

  7. […] I end with my glamour shot. I went to a charity banquet last night and this was my outfit. I found the dress a little over a year ago on Mod Cloth and it sold out in about three hours! I knew the minute I saw it that it was perfect for me, and every time I wear it I feel beautiful. Is there really anything else one needs in a dress? The white jacket is vintage and is from Dear Golden, the shoes are Betsy Johnson (similar here), and the necklace is old from Kate Spade (similar here). The hair is my hot set and I have a tutorial here. […]
