01 October 2019 • Vintage Hair and Makeup Workshops

This was a totally positive experience. Miss Lee is so talented and has enough time to give all the students personal attention, I know have more tips on how to practice and perfect my look. The class is small and the environment is great.

What great fun! It was so lovely to sit and just play for an afternoon, learning new things and watching strangers turn from everyday folk to glamorous 60's sirens. I learnt some new skills and looked into the mirror and saw a woman that I did not recognise. Experience in the girly arts is definitely a plus but there is plenty of support from Miss Lee for people like me who have not a clue. I'll definitely be back and bring some friends!
