Nottingham Does Vintage

Nottingham Does Vintage

I will be running the POP-UP PARLOUR at the Nottingham Play House this coming Saturday for Nottingham does Vintage.

Spaces still available! Email info@sarahrussell.co.uk or fill out the contact form below to get booked in. Go on … get pampered  ready for that night out or belated Valentines date.

You will be able to book time slots at 15 minute intervals at 00 / 15 / 30 / 45 past each hour from 10:30am – 4:30pm. These slots will work on a queue jump system, this means that I will be running the pop-up salon on a first come first served basis however for those of you that pre-book a time slot, when you arrive you will be able to skip straight to the front  of the queue. There may be a short wait only if there is someone already in the chair. I run the salon this way as it allows some flexibility incase anyone is running late or has to cancel.

Liner & Lips £5 (10mins)

Lashes, Liner & Lips £10 (15 mins) [Inc. fake strip lashes]

Bella Rox

When Sam from Bella Rox asked me to join this amazing team of creatives I couldn’t resist. We designed the shoot to be a romantic romp through the decades from the 1920s through to the 1960s. Victory rolls and big beehives were teamed with beautiful vintage dresses, styled by Jessica Williams, and stunning floral creations, by Blush Floral Design. Creating the perfect show case for Bella Rox’s new range of hair accessories and jewellery and Liz Rose van Bokhoven was there to capture it all on camera and produce this mesmerising collection of photographs. And not forgetting our gorgeous model Frankie Holah.

Here are just a few of my favourites …

To see the full collection of photographs see my Portfolio pages.

We have also been lucky enough to for the photographs to be featured on the award winning Love My Dress Blog. You can see more details of this on my Press pages.

Recreating the look

For you 1960s lovers – if you want to try and recreate the beehive at home here is my how-to-get-the-look guide. If you prefer the glamour of 1950s here is my guide to getting the glamourous 1950s makeup look.
