1960s Hair and Make-up Workshops
by Thread Den
Our Vintage Hair and Make-up workshops are a fabulous and fun filled 4 hours. Miss Lee will take you through iconic make-up and hair styling from the 1960s while looking at the social and historical impact of the time on these styles.
Come along you groovy Go-Go girlies as we take you through 1960s hair techniques such as backcombing and smoothing to create the most voluminous killer beehive and bouffant dos. You’ll also learn how to purrrrrfect the feline-inspired winged eyeliner that was popular at the time, play with outta-sight eyeshadow shades and fabulous lip colours. If you’ve always wanted to recreate the gorgeous style of Priscilla Presley, Twiggy, Aretha Franklin, Bridgette Bardot and Elizabeth Taylor, than this is the workshop for you!
Rather than a look and learn approach, these are hands on classes where you will learn the techniques to transform yourself! Pull on your glad rags, grab some friends, bring a bottle of bubbles and join the loveliest afternoon that you could imagine.
