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.

Vintage bridal hair & makeup is so diverse and never goes out of fashion – there are so many eras with such elegant, classic looks to play with and today’s modern bride can even work with her stylist to take the best bits of her favourite vintage bridal hair & makeup looks and turn it into something truly unique.

Vintage bridal hair & makeup is one of my favourite styles to work with on my clients, it’s so much fun! I adore this 1920s/1930s style wedding dress that one of my brides this year wore. We worked hard on her trial day to find a vintage bridal hair & makeup look that worked for her and made her feel beautiful. We decided upon this gorgeous low bun style, structured and the back and a little looser at the front for a really romantic edge.

Teamed with a stunning vintage bridal hair accessory and quite natural looking makeup with eyes that pop, this vintage bridal hair & makeup look was absolutely perfect!

From the back of this stunning vintage bridal hair style you can see all of the intricate detail I included to make this look really something special.

This style is a wonderful match for the bridal gown as well, drawing the eye down towards that lovely detail at the back, but adding the the overall effect rather than taking anything away from it.

For the Mother of the Bride, we went for a similarly structured low bun but with just a little less fanciful detail. Again, we have gone for the softer front with a neater back and some height on the crown for added elegance.

I think that this hair & makeup style is gorgeous. This mother of the bride style would also work just as well for a mature bride and just goes to show that you can look absolutely stunning for your big day, whatever your age
