My Weekly Special - - VINTAGE MAKEOVER -

When it came to look­ing ex­tra spe­cial, the women of the 40s and 50s knew just how to turn on the glam­our! And that’s why so many of us love go­ing vin­tage for spe­cial oc­ca­sions, such as Christ­mas.

So when Wendy, Jacki and Moira con­tacted us with a plea for a new look for this Christ­mas, we turned to our vin­tage ex­perts, who promptly trans­formed our three mod­ern girls into glam­orous, so­phis­ti­cated sirens.

“A vin­tage makeover gives ev­ery woman a new con­fi­dence,” said Kirstie


Corn­wall of Lady Jane Vin­tage, a hair and beauty salon which spe­cialises in 1940s, 1950s and 1960s chic. “Nowa­days, hav­ing your hair styled and make-up ap­plied is a spe­cial treat but ev­ery woman should have a vin­tage makeover at least once – it’s the ideal Christ­mas present!”

Kirstie and the Lady Jane Vin­tage team pro­vide a unique styling ex­pe­ri­ence which starts with waistcinch­ing shapewear for an hour­glass fig­ure. Fin­ish your out­fit with sexy seamed tights.

“The vin­tage look will never go out of date,” con­tin­ued Kirstie. “It’s not just the lat­est trend, this is time­less beauty.

“Vin­tage is just so clas­sic and un­de­ni­ably stylish – es­pe­cially 1950s vin­tage looks. Al­most all women of the 1950s wore red lip­stick and never left the house with­out styling their hair – and that’s how I think women should be.”

Her own out­fits, hair and make-up are heav­ily in­flu­enced by the 50s.

“Was there ever a more en­chant­ing pe­riod of time?” ex­claimed Kirstie, who also stocks vin­tage fash­ions and bridal wear in her salon and the Lady Jane Vin­tage web­site. “The 1950s were fun and flirty yet so so­phis­ti­cated. I’m only sad I wasn’t there to ex­pe­ri­ence it!

“How­ever, I’m very happy to say that the clas­sic 50s look, which is de­fined by two sil­hou­ettes – the wide cir­cle skirt and the slim­line pen­cil skirt – is be­com­ing more and more pop­u­lar. Per­son­ally, I like them both – al­though I love all things vin­tage so per­haps I’m not the best per­son to com­ment!”
