Get ready for Goodwood Revival

My sister Kate has been a car freak ever since I can remember. Every last penny was spent on matchbox cars as a kid, then custom car magazines, then the real thing from Triumph Spitfires to Morris Minors, and now the iconic little Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite as featured in our film Gang Girls. So Goodwood Revival has always been on her radar, and over the past couple of years we've caught up! This year, with 250,000 visitors expected at Revival this September, Vintage Hair Lounge will be hosting our first and the biggest ever Vintage Hair and Makeup Revival Salon on Goodwood's expanded "Over the Road" site (units 378 and 381).

And vintage fashion always works better when classic vehicles are involved. Check these beauties out!

Over at the Vintage Nostalgia Show a spectacular flow of classic cars is being booked in on a daily basis for a fabulous weekender at Stockton Park in Wiltshire in May. Then there's the Burpham Motor Racing Club Classic Car and Motorbike Show happening in September featuring Formula 1 Legend John Surtees. And where there are vintage cars there's Vintage Hair Lounge! Our pop up vintage hair and makeup parlours will be a key feature at all of these (and many more events) this year, a fun destination to perfect your vintage look and get the very best out of the festival going experience.

For the last two years, Vintage Hair Lounge has featured at Goodwood Revival; in 2010 we graced the starting line boards at the Jackie Stewart building for Investec guests and in 2011 we were to be found in the Revival Hair Salon next to Glamcabs.

Kate, a Senior Engineer for Nissan will be exhibiting her Sprite at the Goodwood Revival Car Show close to Vintage Hair Lounge, and as experience tells us that great vintage hairdos and vintage cars make for iconic photos, be sure to start your Revival experience with our salon photographer Harry Pearce on hand ready to snap your hairdo at its very best with a sea of awesome motor engineering at your feet!
