Walking into Bethany’s vintage beauty parlour in Chorlton is like walking into a dream. Well it is a dream- one of Bethany’s, that she’s worked so hard to realise.
And what a dream it is. If any of you have visited Bethany before for vintage hair and beauty you’ll have been into that divine room in her house, perfect powder pink a recreation of a 50s salon. Find some images of the previous place here. She’s been doing the vintage hair and beauty thing since 2009 and has many awards and accolades to her name. Bethany is a real expert in her field
This new and improved vintage beauty parlour is on a much grander scale with glistening chandeliers, art deco wall lamps, gilt frames, six hollywood style pamper stations …. It was like walking into a powder room from the Golden Age of cinema.
Situated in the other side of Chorlton on Kingshill Road, Chorlton Green, Bethany and her team are offering a multitude of vintage beauty services. From Hen Parties, to Wedding day make overs, to burlesuqe classes to just a pampering session before a night out. If you want a little more va va voom- then this is the place to go.
There’s even a surprisingly large space downstairs, where Bethany has promised there will be pop up supper clubs and cinema nights, this space can also be hired out independently.
The opening event was a treat as we had the one and only Kiki De Ville seducing us with her (still) amazing voice and Lady Wildflower being putting the tease into strip tease with a Hollywood inspired burlesque act.

I’ve been badgering Bethany for a long time about opening a vintage beauty salon and I’m so pleased for her- I wish her every success in the future and I’ll always be cheering her on.
