I’ve known the dashing Harry and elegant Edna for several years now as host & hostess of ‘Hednas the Vintage Nightclub‘ and compares of Harry and Edna on the Wireless. As their resident vintage hair and make-up stylist to their Hednas guests I have worked with them frequently and taken part in many other events and demos with them such as ‘History Live’ for English Hertitage, A Vintage Afternoon in association with the Stables and Cleo Lane and ‘Back to the Forties’ at Duxford. This year will see us all join forces for their Vintage Day event at the MK I.F Festival, a festival that The Times describes as:
“A feast of cutting edge culture…we may never look at Milton Keynes in the same way again”
Harry and Ednas’ Vintage Day will be held on July 26th, from 10:30-3pm, in the fabulous surroundings of the Spiegeltent, a beautiful wooden travelling tent all decorated with opulent mirrors and stained glass, not a bad place to be setting up a styling booth for the day! The event will take the shape of a tea dance with a lindy hop lesson first to get everyone out on the dance floor followed by performances from the wonderful Bevin Boys. Who are regulars at Twinwood Festival, The Isle of Wight Festival and War & Peace to name a few. Joining them on the line up are all singing, all tap dancing trio My Favourite Things who’s pitched perfect harmonies and great rhythms make them a must see! I’ve had a the pleasure of styling them on several occasions and always enjoy their performances.
I will be available for hairstyling appointments prior to the event with a styling menu of great 1940s looks to choose from, including iconic victory rolls and beautiful pin-curld updos. You can book your slot with me and your tickets to this fab event on 01908 280800 or via the website here.
This weekend (July 12/13th) see’s me setting up pop-up parlour at Santa Pod for Dragstalgia, if you are attending the event do pop by and say hi and to keep up with my whereabouts over the summer do keep an eye on my events page here.
