We All Love Cherry Dollface

Recently, you the readers were asked who you would love to see interviewed on Pin Up Persuasion and the overwhelming response was the lovely Cherry Dollface! Many of you may know Cherry from her incredibly informative YouTube Pin Up tutorials. It is with great pleasure we have this opportunity to get to know a little bit more about the gal behind the camera…

-Tell us a about the gal “Cherry Dollface”, what do you enjoy outside of your work…

  • Work takes up so much of my time! But my work is also my hobby so it goes hand in hand. I love doing hair! I also love spending time with my new husband. We have a pretty mellow life. We love movies and making dinner and going for walks and visiting museums. I am a pretty normal gal.
– When did “Cherry Dollface” begin, how did it come to be?
  • In 2004 I was at a car show and a photographer snapped a photo of me that later ended up on the cover of a magazine. From there it just kind of took off!
– What is the meaning behind the name Cherry Dollface?
  • My real name is Cherokee so Cherry was a nickname growing up. And my email forever was CherryDollface– so it just kind of stuck.
– What/who inspires you as an artist/model?
  • I find inspiration everywhere. But mostly what inspires me is happiness. I love feeling whole and happy when I go to sleep at night so I am always searching for the things in my life that make me feel that way. I love when I get emails and messages from people saying that my videos have somehow changed or improved their lives. That gives me motivation to keep going on the days when things get tough.
– When did you get your first tattoo and what was it? Which one(s) is(are) your favorite?
  • I was 19 and I got the cherries on my chest. And it is hard to pick a favorite but right now it is my back piece because it took so long and was so painful and I am just glad it is done!

– Have you always loved the pinup/rockabilly lifestyle? When did you start embracing your love of the culture?
  • When I was 14 I learned how to swing dance and that started my obsession with vintage culture.

– If you could meet anyone living or deceased, who would it be and why?

  • I would meet Homer Simpson and share a donut and a mug of Duff beer.
– What vintage look would you like to see make a comeback with women today?

  • I think a lot of vintage looks are already making a comeback. But I would love to see modesty come back. The trend of butt cheeks hanging out all over the place is appalling.
– Have you taken any formal beauty or hair stylist training?Β 
  • Nope! Self taught. πŸ™‚
– Did you ever imagine that Cherry Dollface would become what it has today?Β 
  • Absolutely not. It started as a fun hobby when I was in college working on a business degree. But now that degree has helped me turn my hobby into my career. I thank my lucky stars every day that I get to live the life that I do.

– Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
  • Perhaps pregnant! Oh man I am going to look ridiculous. Ha! I hope that in 5 years I am dominating the world and living a happy life with my husband and loved ones
– Do you have any new and exciting projects coming up that you can share?
  • I just designed the “Cherry Dollface” dress with Steady Clothing- it should be available by the end of the year. I am also working on doing a tour of my pinup hair and makeup classes next year. So far I am doing the mid west but I am open to other cities that want to sponsor me. And I have a really big announcement coming at the end of the year but I can’t talk about it yet!
– As a role model for women and girls around the world, what would like to share with them?
  • Just be yourself. Don’t cave to the pressures of what society tells you is beautiful or “normal.” It’s ok to feel a bit weird and out of place, especially when you are a teenager. But the more true to yourself you stay when you are young, the happier you will be as you get older.

Now let’s go with some randoms questions totally not related to switch things up…

– If you could only choose one species to save on Noah’s Ark…what would it be?
  • Koala bears. They’re so darn cute!
– Would you rather trade some intelligence for looks or looks for intelligence?
  • Looks for intelligence for sure. There is nothing less attractive than an airhead.
– What is the most unusual conversation you’ve ever had?
  • Oh man– I don’t think I can answer this one without incriminating people. My two best friends are the biggest weirdos I know, so we have lots of really random all-over-the-map conversations.
– If snakes could talk, what would they say?
  • More mice.
– What is your biggest pet peeve (what do would wish you could do to retaliate)?
  • CALIFORNIA DRIVERS!!! I wish I could teach them all how to merge. Zipper method, people!
– If you could select one person to give a million dollars but it couldn’t be someone you know…who would you choose?
  • I would go into a fire station and randomly pick a fireman. Those guys deserve it.
– Who would be more beneficial during a Zombie apocalypse – Batman or Superman? Why?
  • I have always had an insane crush on Batman, but I think Superman would take the cake. He can fly!
– If you were a vintage car, what would you be and why?
  • A 1953 Buick Skylark. Convertible. Because I look good all sparkly and topless. πŸ™‚
– What is your favorite Barry Manilow song?
  • Mandy? Is that Barry Manilow? I’ll go with that one.
