There are few icons in the Pin Up community that reach a level of supernova stardom quite like the notorious Bettie Page.

From her signature jet-black hair, to her now iconic bangs, Bettie Page will forever retain her title as the Queen of Pin Ups.

Having gained popularity amongst a rather interesting subset of culture in the 1950s, Ms. Page found herself at the forefront of provocative imagery, while maintaining her wholesome “girl-next-door” persona.

Perhaps best known for her shots with Bunny Yeager in Miami, Bettie inspired one pin up after another to hit the beach with both confidence and a hint of sexuality.

The incomparable Bettie Page’s career spanned less than 10 years, but her lasting effect is a fabulous one. ¬†Once a week, someone on the UV Team contemplates getting “Bettie Page bangs”- and they lovingly pose as though they were on the white sands of the Florida Keys circa 1955. Not to mention, Ms. Page has inspired such retro-inspired lines as the UV-favorite Bettie Page Clothing.
