You’ve got to admit it: ladies scrubbed up pretty darn nicely in the 1940s. And as it happens, the looks are just as lovely now as they were the first time around (hell, maybe even a little more so).
If you’d care to channel your inner Marilyn, or just make your hair sit in one of those cute swishy bobs, you may like to tag along to Thread Den’s next vintage hair and beauty class. The sewing lounge in Collingwood, Melbourne holds monthly workshops in retro grooming techniques, and their next session is dedicated to post-war glamour. It kicks off at 2pm and winds up at 5:30pm on Sunday October 9th, and you can pop over this way to book yourself in.
Hit play the video to the left to see all the other sweet stuff you can get up to at Thread Den (it’s basically a cubby house for craft nerds).
