Workshops & Training

Learn Make Up & Hairstyling From The Best

At The VBP we offer training, for amateurs and professionals alike. Our primary focus is on vintage hair and makeup. In addition to hair and makeup training, our partners also deliver workshops in other areas of vintage lifestyle, such as burlesque and dance.

Group Workshops

We have an evolving  programme of group classes, which run throughout the year, anyone can enrol on them and we focus on topics which our followers wish to learn. These are a fun day at the salon for an individual or a small group.

Our workshops include:

  • Pin Up makeup
  • Hair Setting fundamentals – Curls and Waves
  • Smokey Eyes – The versatile look
  • Classic Up-Dos – Victory Rolls, Dita Bun and Beehive
  • Pageboy – Creating Volume and Smooth Finish
  • Pincurl Masterclass

The majority of our group workshops can be attended by novices, however we do run Intermediate and Advanced level workshops, which require existing knowledge and skills. So there is something for everyone.

Workshop dates are announced firstly to the subscribers of our newsletter and then subsequently via social media. Places are limited and are booked with a deposit, on a first come first served basis.
