Nostalgia! Vintage Hair & Make Up Evening

After a great evening at the Nostalgia! Exhibition opening party on Saturday, I popped back to the Animal Studio & Gallery for a special evening event by Sarah's Doo Wop Dos 

Sarah organised a live demonstration event to teach lovely ladies about Vintage Hair & Make Up styling, at just £5 per head.

Not only could you view the photography on display, it gave you a great chance see how the styles are created and to ask for tips & tricks in achieving them!

Hair accessories available to purchase to complete any vintage look!

The style Sarah demonstrated was classic 40's waves, inspired by Veronica Lake & Rita Hayworth.


We got a step by step guide for the setting pattern using a mixture of tong curls and hot sticks, all pinned until completely cool.

Throughout the demonstration Sarah shared all her tips and tricks she has learnt since starting up her vintage hair & make up business in 2010.

We learnt the best way to apply base, concealer and foundation, the best brushes to use, and most importantly that you don't always have to splurge on products to achieve the desired vintage look, which means you can use the money you save to buy that dress you've been lusting after on etsy!

The finished look on the lovely model Ketija, she looked like a million dollars!

 Sarah also did a little Q&A session where she helped us ladies understand the changing face of make up and hair throughout the mid century era, showcasing her extensive knowledge, and passion for vintage styling.

It was a lovely evening and I will be practising getting that perfect 'S' wave this weekend!
