Lipstick, curls - and a night of blues

Into vintage styling?  Love a bit of rhythm 'n' blues?  Then rock down to The Blues Kitchen tomorrow (12th March) or next Saturday (19th March) when Amanda and Natasha (a.k.a. Lipstick and Curls) - who specialise in hair and make-up from the 1920s to the 1960s - will  be there to transform you into a Charleston-loving flapper girl, a Hollywood starlet, a Rockabilly girlfriend or a Mad Men sex kitten. They'll be setting up their 'vintage beauty parlour' to offer a range of treatments and services just perfect for this event.
     There are two special looks devised specially for these Beauty 'n' Blues evenings:  The Shangri-La features beehive-esque backcombing, while The Rockabilly offers a Betty Page-style fringe or 50s curls.  (Oh, and ideally, do book in advance to take advantage of special discounts:  hair and make-up is from £10.)  There'll be music, too, of course:  the stage at The Blues Kitchen will showcase a dozen foot-stomping bands.  Just pick your style 'era' and prepare to rock around the clock.
     Some starlet night, eh...?
