Introductory Workshop

In our Introductory workshop it is all hands on and in 3 hours we go through Vintage Hairstyling, Makeup from the 30′s to the 60′s and the importance of undergarments and all with a healthy dose of Charm.

Intermediate Vintage Hairstyling Workshop

In our Intermediate Vintage Hairstyling workshop you will be guided through 5 very popular Vintage Hairstyles and you will be made to achieve each of them in the class with our help. This is intensive and hands on and you will have had to complete the first course before attempting this one.

Class Time

Classes begin promptly so please arrive 10 mins prior to class commencement so as not to miss out on any of the fun! Our workshops specialise in participation and everyone getting involved, so to ensure you achieve the most out of our classes we advise you to bring some necessary items.

Things to bring with you

  • Your own make up – Don’t stress if you do not possess much bring what you have and we sell the Perfect simple yet striking Essential range so bring spending money and get the lot yourself including your new foundation!  (Does not include Mascara)
  • Brush (We sell the best boar bristle round brush)
  • Comb
  • Bobby pins (We also sell the best Sturdy Grips)
  • Stand Up Makeup Mirror

NB: Hair is easier to work with if it is not FRESHLY washed…  Please ensure you have not put any oils in your hair such as coconut oil, argan oil or Moroccan oil for example as they coat your hair and are a styling nightmare to work with…

  • Styling tools such as hot rollers, foam rollers, curling irons are optional as we instruct you on styles with and without the use of any tools.
