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.

On the hunt for that perfect bridal inspiration for your big day? You’re not alone! All 2017 brides will now be on the look out for their dream dress, hair and makeup and whilst Pinterest is great, you really can’t do better than turning to the red carpet for high fashion looks.

If you want your choices to be bang on trend for 2017, award ceremonies might just hold the answer for you. To kick awards season off, celebs donned their finest for the Golden Globes.

Bridal Inspiration: Golden Globes 2017 Hair, Makeup & Wedding Fashion

Emma Stone

Fairytale whimsy complete with starry embellishments starts us off on our run down of Golden Globes bridal inspiration, courtesy of the gorgeous Emma Stone, gracing the red carpet in her Valentino gown.

This very pale pink is a colour we can expect to see a lot more of in 2017, both on the red carpet and down the wedding aisle. Doesn’t it look fabulous with her auburn hair? Definitely one for the red head brides out there!

With a dress so beautifully decorated, Emma has quite rightly kept her makeup fresh and simple to avoid making the overall look too busy. I adore her choice of lip colour here, which flatters her skin tone perfectly. Strong and perfectly groomed brows frame her face whilst a pop of orange toned blusher really brings out those cheek bones.

Emma’s hair hair been put up in a wonderfully loose up do, which exudes elegance whilst still remaining quite relaxed.

Gina Rodriguez

Gina Rodriguez demonstrates perfectly how to do the roaring twenties fashion this year. We’re still loving those beaded tassels, a la 1920s flapper girls, but the Hollywood length and plunging neckline bring this bang up to date.

To continue the theme, Gina has opted for Hollywood waves in her hair, which as you can see look equally amazing on shorter styles as on long locks. Fantastic bridal inspiration for shorter hairstyles.

Lashes play the main role in Gina’s flawless makeup, really amping up the glamour and sex appeal of the whole look.

Lily James

We saw a lot of one shouldered dresses at Bridal Fashion Week in October 2016, set to be the next big thing for Spring 2017. Right on time, Lily James chose to wear this simply stunning, Grecian gown, complete with an attached flowing cape and nipped in waist to really show off those curves. Figure hugging, yet still demure enough for a bride.

Shoulder length hair is the cut of the season, so I’m expecting to work with many more brides with this length in 2017, as opposed to the long tresses that brides-to-be often aim for. Lily has kept her hair cutting edge – shoulder length with loose, messy waves. This creates the ideal counter balance between cool and glamour. She’s also had just a touch of volume and lift added in at the crown for that really regal look.

Smoky eyes are a must here – just check out that smoulder! Her lips have been kept defined but nude though, so as not to over do it.

Lola Kirke

A newbie on the celeb circuit, Lola Kirke (seen in ‘Gone Girl’ last year) may not be a household name yet but she sure does have her red carpet style down – definitely one to watch for your bridal inspiration.

Just as embellishments are a must for 2017 wedding dresses, so is embroidery, just as Lola has worn here (oh, and there’s that pale pink again!).

Following suit with the length of the moment, shaggy, messy waves in a 70s style give this outfit a really relaxed feel, despite the dress actually being quite ‘princess-like’.
