Violets are Blue: Vintage Pamper Day



Have you ever wanted to perfect the vintage cat eye? Learn how to do victory rolls perhaps?

Then Violets are Blue is certainly for you.


House of Trixie Blue have created Violets are Blue specifically with you in mind. We love the vintage looks of glamorous bygone era's and we know all too well how difficult it can be to achieve these looks.

Not any more!! Within this vintage pamper day, our professional make up artist - Nelly's obsession, will teach you step by step how to achieve the iconic looks of the 1940/50's.  


Within this practical and theoretical workshop, Nelly's Obsession will provide you with all the tips and tricks to recreate these beautiful vintage looks on yourself.  


Firstly, Nelly's Obsession will apply the looks to a model, to show you the techniques. Then it is over to you to practise on your beautiful self (list of equipment to bring is below) as a group.  


Nelly's obsession will be on hand to assist and advise and welcomes any questions that may arise when you are creating stunning looks on yourself. 






After a short break, our next vintage workshop is with the professional hair stylist Neon Cleopatra. Neon Cleopatra will take you through two iconic hair styles of the 1940/50's and discuss tips, tricks and the DIY approaches to achieving these looks.


As with the make up workshop, firstly the hair styles will be applied to a model, to showcase the practical and theoretical aspects of the style. Next, you take the spotlight by trying out these fantastic looks on your own hair (list of equipment to bring is below) as a group. 


Neon Cleopatra, as with Nelly's Obsession, will be available to assist and advise you throughout the workshop and encourages you to use this time to develop your skills in a welcoming and safe environment.





And that is not all.  The incredible professional photographer Bentley G. Ravelle will capture your perfected looks in your very own shoot.  


That's right folks, you will have the opportunity to pose like the starlets of the 1940/50's as a memory for the day.

The shoot takes place after each workshop (if booked individual workshops) or after the final workshop (if booked both).



There will be vintage stalls set up throughout the day, so you are able to peek at some of the beautiful delights to compliment your new looks.


PLUS you will receive a FREE gift as a thank you from us for attending Violets are Blue.


A perfect day to capture the vintage glamour of a bygone era, suitable for individiuals, groups, hen parties, work parties, dare we say Christmas parties, or just if you want a great day out.


We look forward to seeing you all there. 


Love & Shimmies
