In part two of our Planning a Vintage Wedding special we take a look at creating your own vintage look. We caught up with three industry experts who, just like us, love vintage hair and make-up. ALOT!
Christina Jessel, hair and make-up specialist, says “Vintage is very much requested in my work at the moment. Its fun, classic, glamorous and works with all face shapes and hair textures. Adding a beautiful sparkly hair decoration with jewels or an accessory with fine, small feathers really completes the vintage look.
Caroline from Powder and Glow loves recreating vintage make up. “From mastering a 1940’s starlet, a 1950’s siren pout or a 1960’s smokey eye, we can work with you to get the vintage look you want. We also offer personal vintage styling tutorials so you can learn to create the looks yourself”.
Liz Bower from Simply Beautiful Wedding Hair specialises in wedding hair. “It’s fantastic to create a lovely soft, vintage feel, incorportating Marcel waves and twists, finishing beautifully with the most gorgeous hair comb.”
Here’s some inspiration from the ladies!
