Pinup Styles for Textured and Curly Hair
If you love pinup and showgirl style but many of the hair tutorials you've seen fail your curly-to-4C tresses, this is for you! Learn from The Maine Attraction, an internationally-celebrated burlesque pioneer who's been making waves since she first started.

A History of the G-String
ONLINE: Illustrated Lecture with Jo Weldon. The G-String, called “the ultimate triangle” by semiotician and fashion theorist Roland Barthes, has a dazzling history going back to ancient cultures in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Learn how this tiny garment and its cousins, the thong and the loincloth, served artists, athletes, and warriors before becoming the symbol of the stripteaser; how it has appeared in literature high and low; and how it evolves to both reflect and influence culture and the ways in which various bodies are perceived, celebrated, censured, and policed. From the decent to the indecent, from the vulgar to the divine, the g-string has always simultaneously revealed and concealed more than meets the eye.
