The celebrated Queen of Pinups styled her own iconic hair, did her own makeup, fashioned her own swimsuits, and was ahead of her time in endless ways, making her a source of inspiration to stars like Madonna, Beyoncé, and Katy Perry.

Within The Little Book of Bettie you'll find:
- Bettie's remarkable backstory

- Vintage hair and makeup lessons
