THE Vintage Hair Parlour Comes To MITS



We are beside ourselves with excitement that Nina's Vintage Hair Parlour is setting up salon in the Made In The Shade Vintage Nook at this season's event! For those of you who haven't happened across the fabulous Nina and her team of talented stylists and grooming experts just yet, then read on - and be prepared for your life to change forever!

In 2006, Nina's Hair Parlour in London Town revolutionised hairdressing for a baying audience of style savvy individuals unhappy with the fashion for homogenisation and Kate Moss cast offs. Building a loyal clientele, Nina Butkovich-Budden wowed the nation's press with Victory Rolls, Finger Waves and Beehives of such exacting style and sophistication that an appointment with the headdresser became more precious than cocktails before dinner! The Guardian, The Independent, Elle Magazine, French Vogue; Nina was wooed by them all, yet no amount of good press could guarantee a Saturday afternoon appointment without at least a month's notice.

Moving away from replicating the same old fads, these vintage hairstyles are crafted to suit the wearer. Rockabilly Rebel, Screen Siren, Burlesque Beauty, Bounder or Cad, Nina's Hair Parlour caters for everyone and every look. Stocked with original 50s chairs mounted with full hair dryers, original metal marcel waving clips and the unbeatable retro know-how, the irresistible team at Nina's team offer a service unrivalled by any other salon in the country. And the experience doesn't need to end with your hair appointment! Make up and styling classes are a regular feature at the parlour on London's Edgware Road, allowing Nina to burst the bubble of everyday dressing down.

Nina has a history of working as a period style consultant at the Young Vic Theatre and has been the hair creator of the new Ray Davies's musical, 'Come Dancing' at The Theatre Royal. She has worked on international fashion shows with a myriad of photographers, music video directors and filmmakers and has joined celebrity hairstylist Danilo twice this year working on The Kylie Minogue Show for ITV and The Life Ball 2008 in Vienna. She recently feautred on the BBC's Celebrity Scissorhands programme as a guest stylist.
