Vintage hairstyles and wedding makeup never seem to go out of fashion!

So, whether you are having a vintage themed party or wedding, or perhaps attending an event somewhere like Goodwood, you need the right makeup to bring your look together.

I don’t know how they do it, but the vintage makeup looks are timeless. And even though, in some cases the wedding dress can give you an idea as to the year someone got married, vintage makeup gives nothing away.

Vintage Glamour

There are some exquisitely beautiful vintage looking hotels scattered around London that seem to have been stuck in a time warp. They haven’t of course.

And although everything about them screams old school glamour, they have all the essential luxuries to make sure that your vintage wedding party is a roaring success.

I’ve worked in some pretty amazing vintage themed venues, one of my favourites is The Town Hall Hotel in Patriot Square. Maybe not vintage to the last detail, but definitely worth a look if you are on the hunt for the perfect venue.

And a very close second is the little known, but totally divine Wellesley Hotel in Knightsbridge.

It’s like stepping back in time, into a little bit of 1920s ’30s or 40’s London, I’m not sure which – but with all the glamour of the Frank Sinatra and the 1950s!

So, what ever the decade of your vintage themed wedding, there is a venue out there that is right for you.

And a makeup artist ready to help you bring your vintage hairstyle and makeup ideas a reality.

I would advise having a trial however, so you can work out just how vintage you would like to go.

And although your wedding day hairstyle will need to work seamlessly with your makeup you don’t have to go vintage the whole way if you don’t want to.

It is totally possible mix and match, and to wear beautiful vintage makeup with a bang up to the minute textured wedding day hairstyle.

Hollywood vintage hairstyles

Wearing your hair down in a beautiful Hollywood wave will work whatever your age. And what’s more, both young and older brides can definitely carry off this classic vintage hair style.

Hot on the heels of my last blog post, which covered all the best bridal inspirations looks from this year’s Golden Globes, it’s now time to turn our attention to the Grammys and all the celeb’s show-stopping styles…

Adele

 

Stealing the spotlight by swooping up a whopping 5 awards (and splitting one in half with that dedication to Queen Bey!), it’s just as well that Adele was looking as fabulous as she was at this year’s Grammys.

Since her transformation from her early days of style, Adele has really come into her own when it comes to fabulous hair and makeup on the red carpet.

We all know that Adele loves a bit of a retro vibe and she’s showed us how it’s done, yet again, with that striking cat-eye eye liner, strong brows and hair with just the right amount of volume.

For brides wanting to give a gentle nod to 1960s glamour and really steal the show as they walk down the aisle, this is the Grammys hair and makeup look for you!

Camila Cabello

 

The newly solo Camila Cabello wowed in Lavender on the red carpet and showed us that 70s inspired hair and makeup is still going strong in 2017.

There were quite a few celebs that opted for this lovely, loose, beachy wave hairstyle at this year’s Grammys, complete with an off-middle parting to really give the overall ‘I’m naturally this gorgeous’ look. The ‘undone’ appearance of this style is perfect for a Boho bride or a bride who is going for a slightly less formal look whilst still looking absolutely stunning.

Minimal makeup matches this style best, as demonstrated by Camila. Strong brows play a major role here again and eyes are kept simple with taupe, smokey makeup and nearly nude lips.

Rita Ora

 

For the more daring or ‘alternative’ brides out there, Rita Ora wears this year’s hot fashion trend of red-toned eye shadow. It’s hard to believe that this would work (we’ve spent so long blending our concealers in to try and get rid of any redness around the eyes!), but as you can see, it clearly does.

Admittedly, it’s perhaps not for the most traditional brides, but if you’re after something a little bit different that really makes you stand out from the crowd, this might be just what you’re after.

The orange tones in this dramatic eye shadow really makes Rita’s warm skin tone flash with radiance, but if you have cool skin tones this might not work so well for you.

Rita’s poker straight locks tied back into a simple, low pony showcases another red carpet trend that we’re bound the see a lot more of this year.

Kristin Cavallari

 

Everyone’s talking about Kristin’s plunging neckline at the 2017 Grammys and her ‘perky boob’ comments, but I’m just loving her laid-back hair and makeup style, reminiscent of California beach bum gone red carpet!

Perfect for a summer bride and even just for daily wear – Kristin’s messy, flyaway pony is all the rage and might look a little too thrown together if it wasn’t paired with that bronzed, beach babe makeup and well defined eyes.

With such a show-stopping, brave gown, it would have been remiss to style Kristin’s hair and makeup into anything too showy so her stylist has got it just right!
