The Powder Room: 50s-style beauty salon

Powder room

If you fancy getting pampered in 1950s style and are London way, you may be interested in paying a visit to The Powder Room. The salon is a base for the Powderpuff Girls who are a frequent sight at the capital's most stylish parties in their glamorous retro pink uniforms, offering on the spot manicures and make-up.

The recently opened salon is based on Columbia Road, East London and is as beautifully decorated and styled as its make-up artists, decked out in full '50s style. It offers an experience worthy of any wannabe vintage Hollywood starlets with a wide range of services and a variety of party packages. Prices start at £10 for a false eyelashes application.
