Pin up queens/burlesque bombshells go-go Amy and Bettina May are coming to Houston in February to teach their popular How to Be a Pin Up Girl class, which will be followed by their Pretty Things Peepshow.
The Pin Up class will be held from 1 to 8 p.m., Feb. 18 at ROCBAR, 530 Texas Street. Students will release their inner bombshell by learning the tricks of vintage hair styling and make-up application, as well as getting posing and modeling tips. Once students have the look, they’ll enjoy their very own pin-up photo shoot.
According to Amy and Bettina, the pin up class is a body positive experience. “In class we teach you that true glamour has no size, height or age restriction. All you need is a positive attitude and a set of curlers.”
