Easy Vintage Hair Up-Do For High Humidity Days How-to Video

high humidity retro hair lisa freemont street video

Today, we have a video tutorial for high humidity hair style with a vintage twist. What a lifesaver in all this heat that I know is just going to get hotter and stickier as the summer rolls on. This retro Southern California girl is already tired of the heat and humidity. You all east of me, I don’t know how you do it year after year.

Lisa Freemont Street who does the video was in a bit of a rush when she was filming but if you just take a little time to smooth things out, this high humidity hair style will work just about anywhere. The pin curls and flower are optional for those that are not into the vintage or retro look. But I do think that the roll in the back would be perfect for work or a weekend date. Anything that gets my hair off of my neck and off of my face while still looking presentable is tops in this Southern California pinup’s book.

Dita has really been busy lately. Not only has she been planning this lingerie event in Century City, she has also been doing a photo shoot for the line. She also has been in the final stages of developing her line of GLOVES! The gloves were also used in the photo shoot for her lingerie line.

I’ll take one of each please.

Oh and did I mention that Dita who has the blackest of black hair, also went red… on accident? I wonder what color her hair will be tomorrow during the meet and greet for her lingerie line.

Do not let the age range fool you. These pinups have it going on, and they know it. This 2009 series by Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf puts women in their 70s beautiful pinup-esque poses showing that all it takes is attitude. Bubble baths, leather get-ups, spiked heels, lingerie, and bear skin rugs all set up one of the best pin up photo shoots I have seen.

Olaf is best known for his series of human emotion sets. Through “Grief” and “Hope” he photographed subjects in various highly stylized locations displaying various forms of those emotions. It really is quite moving.
