Most styles are going to begin the same, and that's with a definite part. You can't shorten this step: it's what every other part of the hair style is built off of. That foundation will give you the sleek finish you want in the final steps. The next can't skip step is getting your hair to straighten and make into a pinup style. The most popular method for most short hair pinup styles is to work with your hair from the crown of your head, about an inch or inch and a half wide is usually enough, and go straight to the hair straightener from there. However, there are a few styles that require you to pull some hair to the side in a temporary ponytail type of fashion while you work with getting the exact look and feel you want from the rest of your hairdo. For styles that require a curl what you'll do is take 1 to 1.5 inches of your hair and use the straightener, starting to fold it back around the half way mark. Then quickly Roll that hair into a curl while it's still warm and pin up. Doing this while the hair is still immediately warm will help your style last the entire day. Going along each side of the part, you can straighten up your hair and pull back to pin if you want to further emphasize the front curls, or with shorter hair you can create a fuller and fluffier back. Part of deciding on these pinup hairstyles for short hair is knowing just how short your hair is. There are different styles for full bodied shoulder length hair, and the options edge a little more towards crisp and neat when you have very short hair. Obviously none of these can work with a pixie cut since you do need a certain amount of hair to pull of the styles. The good news is with an emphasis on rolls and tight curls or pinned up support, there's still plenty of options for women looking for a wonderful pinup look.
