We've no doubt our readers are already a pretty stylish bunch but if you feel you could do with some retro hair or make-up pointers, the Vintage Beauty Parlor book by Hannah Wing looks like a good place to start.
As a London-based make-up and hair artist, Wing is well placed to advise on how to create some of the most striking vintage looks. Gorgeous photography and clear step-by-step instructions show you how to recreate looks from each decade from the 1920s to the 1980s. The book's 144 pages also give invaluable guidance on the key trends and colours of each era too, although it's the tips on the earlier decades that are perhaps the most instructive.
Available for £10.39 at amazon.co.uk, it's the perfect addition to your bookshelves, and your dressing table.
