Vintage Hair and Beauty Workshops

What to Bring

  • Make-up essentials: Loose or pressed face powder, black eyeliner (liquid or pencil), black mascara. Great to have, but not essential: red lipliner and lipstick, eyebrow pencil, concealer, foundation, primer, blush and any eyeshadows.
  • Hair essentials: brush, comb and beautiful hair accessories like a flower to complete your look.

What to Wear

  • Something utterly gorgeous! Leave your hair unwashed - it is easier to style hair that has a bit of "living" in it - freshly washed hair will drop your set sooner.

Appropriate For

  • No experience necessary

Although I'd used my hot rollers before I learned better technique and how to set them specifically for my hair, of which there is a lot, and then how to style it once the rollers are out. I learned how to do 50's era make up and some techniques to practice cat's eye eye-liner. It was a great, friendly class and we all left looking and feeling fabulous!

I learned how to apply makeup for a genuine 50's look, and learned several methods of setting my hair to match the makeup. I had loads of fun at this class, it's great to do it with others. It was fantastic value because I learned many techniques that I was able to take away to try at home. And I would definitely recommend any of the vintage hair and beauty classes, whether for the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's, or 60's.
