The Spiegeltent has at last returned to the Brighton Fringe, after 7 long years. I was lucky enough to be asked to do a few hairstyles and make-ups for the launch party at The Mesmerist.

Gabriela is charmed, I'm sure, by Mikelangelo (without his Black Sea Gentlemen)The next morning Lilikoi Kaos came to the salon where I work during the day and had her hair cut and coloured(Yes, that red hair is her own)!
All great fun and a fantastic prelude to seeing both Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen, as well as La Clique on the opening weekend. I highly recommend both!On the Old Steine in Brighton until the end of May 2013.
Vintage-inspired bridal photo shoot

These are some of the behind-the-scenes snaps from a collaborative photoshoot in Hove yesterday. Photography by Ant Bliss, Headwear by Lilly Lewis Millineryhttp://www.lillylewis.co.uk/ and a few clothing pieces by Bobby and Dandyhttp://www.bobbyanddandy.co.uk/in Hove.
We were so lucky to have 2 beautiful models who suited their era so well - Ellie has big eyes and lovely hair to fingerwave, sooo perfect for 1920's and Izzy has a perfect heart-shaped face for 1940's/50's hair and make-up.
Strings were pulled and we had the shoot at a gorgeous house near Hove seafront that had massive windows and deco-inspired furniture and loads of space for us to spread of of our gear out - lighting, make-up, hair equipment and 5 people apparently take up a LOT of space! (I think we had a bit of house envy too, as we were sneakily taking snaps of the chandelier in the hand-crafted kitchen)
Hopefully we'll have the resulting official pictures in the next few weeks - very exciting!
