1920s & 30s Total Look Styling - Hair & Makeup plus Costume

Posted on 20 January, 2017 at 19:05

I have done total look styling for performers and staff at many 1920s/30s theme nights at top venues in central London and around the UK. As a Hair & Media Makeup lecturer, I was recently asked to show some students at Fareham College pin curling and finger waving. Also typical makeup from this era which included eyebrow blocking for higher, thinner, pencilled-in brows.

  A simplified 1920s look that I did for a long line of serving staff at Claridges. Big smokey eyes and cupid bow lips are a must. Blusher only on the apples of the cheeks. No time for pin-curls or eye brow blocking here! You have to be quick, quick, quick!

I styled these lovely models who were hostesses for a Claridges Hotel Awards Ceremony in Mayfair. I supplied the costumes by pulling together black flapper dresses, long beads, black bob wigs and feathered head bands. I made a huge black ostrich feather fan which was used when ushering up the celebrity winners on stage.

Classic magazine article from the era - promoting the Hollywood Starlet look... Great finger waving and pin-curls!

  Perfect Clara Bow lips... this colour and darker...

Above and below: Dark, smokey and sultry modern take on the Art Deco look - chosen by Galliano for Dior. No bronzer here! I love the silver touch in the centre of the top lip to enhance the cupid bow shape. Lovely highlight on the eyes too...
