Get Bettie Page Hair Easy .. Try the Hairfree brush!

Bettie Page Pop Art, Colors Art Print Poster - 24x36When one thinks of the "classic pinup" few names come to mind faster than Bettie Page. A raven haired beauty and icon of the 50s, she was best known for her trademark hairstyle, bangs, blue eyes and uninhibited relationship with the camera. Bettie's hairstyle is one that women are emulating. Want the look? Here is how:

  • Be prepared to color your hair for the full "Bettie homage" look; unless your hair is already dark brown or black. Of course you can still the "the style" without dying your hair but it wouldn't be the Bettie Page look without going dark.

  • Have your bangs cut short. The bangs should be equal length across the entire forehead. The bangs need only be long enough to work with rollers or a curling iron.

  • Keep the hair (except the bangs) long, coming past the shoulders at least.

  • Tame the hair into big, soft curls. If your hair is naturally curly, try a relaxing product. Blow dry the hair with a diffuser and a round brush to achieve the big curls. If you have naturally straight hair, set it with big rollers for a few hours. Set the curls with a lightweight hairspray, as the look should appear soft and natural.

  • Use a large curling iron to tame the bangs. They should come straight down but be curled under just enough to add a little bounce and volume. Set with some hairspray.

  • And for the "pinup look" spice it up with a large flower on the side of your head for special occasions.

Flat irons often heat up to over 400 degrees. Anything you can do to avoid that much heat on your hair is a good thing. I came across a very nice alternative called hairfreé™ self-cleaning hairbrushes. A cool line of brushes that are beyond unique. With the slide of a button, this gadget hair brush pushes all the hair out of it, making it cleaner and easier than a traditional hairbrush. Another cool feature of these brushes is that you can convert each one to a vent brush by adjusting a knob. With a vent brush, you can speed up the blow drying process.  Another big plus ... these brushes can pretty much replace your flat iron and curling iron.

The hairfreé® brushes use the latest in ceramic technology to produce straight, soft, manageable results, performing just as well as the traditional round brush. Some of the benefits associated with Ceramic technology include:

  • Creating a smooth and polished effect with added natural shine.

  • Aids against static build-up.

  • Whilst drying the hair the heat is equally distributed for fast and effective styling.

  • Hair straightening or curling. 

You can order hairfreé™ brushes online for $15.95 for the round brush and $9.95 for the flat brush. They have an email address and phone number on the contact page of their website, hairfree.bz. If you are a salon owner, they also sell in bulk.
