If you fancy getting yourself a vintage-style makeover, you should make a note in your diary for March, which is when Beauty 'n' Blues takes place in London.
The pop-up salon, hosted by Lipstick and Curls, takes place at Camden's The Blues Kitchen venue on Saturday 12th and 19th March from midday to 5pm, offering 'blues-inspired beauty and Rockabilly glamour'. It coincides with the vintage event The Blues Kitchen’s Big Night Out, which you can read all about here.
You can go for a classic look, or opt for two new looks especially for Beauty ‘n’ Blues. The Shangri-La will be a back-combed look similar to a beehive, while the Rockabilly will feature a Betty Page style fringe or 1950s curls. If you have a ticket for the Blues Kitchen event, you can have either look for £10.
Otherwise, just bring along your own inspiration, as The Lipstick and Curls Girls specialise in hair and make-up from the 1920s – 1960s, using traditional techniques to create everything from a jazz era flapper girl, a starlet from Hollywood's golden age, a rock n roll pin-up or a Mad Men sex kitten.
Appointments will be available on the day, but please contact Lipstick and Curls directly and pre book if you can. get in touch via the website www.lipstickandcurls.com or email [email protected]. The address of the pop-up salon is The Blues Kitchen, 111-113 Camden High St, London NW1 7JN.
