WINNING TIP: Congratulations Melinda M! You have won the DVD…
My Best Beauty tips came from my mum who I adore is such a strong woman in everyway and is my best friend. She always told me to stand tall and be confident even if you don’t feel that way wear a smile, treat people the way you would like to be treated,be a lady of class and people will respect you.Be modest, wear clothes of class not arse. lol. She also taught me to set hair,normal sets and hot rollers she used to set and do her mums hair every week.Skills I still use to this day & of course teasing & back combing. This inspired me to become a hairdresser something she’d always wanted, My dad’s grandmother was big on pin curls never was her hair out of place even till 90yrs when she died and these skills helped score me top marks at tafe when having to do a full whole head set with pincurls. I would love to learn these styles you do I would consider them a taste of how my mum used to go out with gloves hat and all.
If you’ve always preferred Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn to Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, then you can breathe a sigh of relief—the fashion trends of yesteryear are back, according to renowned vintage stylist, Miss Chrissy Keepence.
Thanks to shows like Downton Abbey, Boardwalk Empire, Mad Men and The Great Gatsby, Miss Chrissy, who runs popular vintage styling school, The Lindy Charm School for Girls, has seen a popularity surge in vintage style.
A professional stylist, specialising in the vintage looks of the 1930s through to the 60s for the past 17 years, Miss Chrissy regularly holds vintage styling hair, makeup and fashion workshops overseas and in Australia. Having recently returned from Las Vegas where she was presenting, demonstrating and teaching the American vintage lovin’ gals at Viva Las Vegas, Miss Chrissy admits it’s hard to keep up with the demand!
“Trying to get out and teach all those budding fashionistas face-to-face is impossible,” Miss Chrissy says.
But never one to leave her fellow vintage lovers in the lurch, she has enlisted the help of a high-end production company to put together a series of styling DVDs called All About Vintage.
“I encourage women to bring the style into their everyday lives,” she says, “not just on special occasions.”
The easy-to-follow instructional videos take viewers through each step in achieving the vintage look, literally from head-to-toe.
“Viewers are able to easily achieve the look of the era from hair and makeup right through to clothing and accessories”, she says.
“I hope they will reach many other women looking to enhance their own natural inner and outer beauty through the best vintage styling and etiquette,” she says.
