We love it when we get different requests from our lovely creative hen party groups. And we love to suggest new hen party ideas. So if vintage isn’t your scene and you prefer later eras and retro, why not book a 1960s hair and make up hen party?
This group of girls did just that, and it meant that they got to buy some fab mini dresses and go for the sleek lines and colour blocking of 1960s fashion! Well, any excuse to dress up! So whether you want to go cheesy and comical and Austin powers or you genuinely have a passion for 1960s hairstyles, the 1960s is great for an original hen party idea.
Think Barbarella, think bouffants and beehives, the 1960s wasn’t just about haircuts – hairstyling is definitely possible. So you can definitely incorporate the sixties into a pamper party. Forget fancy dress, trawl the vintage shops or the internet and you’ll find plenty of original 1960s clothes to wear, if you want to be authentic!
Here are a couple of other images of 1960s style hairstyling that we’ve done (complete with a rather superb 1960s Bristol to set it off!).
And why not have 1960s themed cocktails and food? Watch Back in Time for Dinner on BBC Iplayer for inspiration. But think prawn cocktails, and pork pies and frankfurters and nuts for nibbles. And you can put together a great playlist with Cilla Black, the Kinks, your favourites from the Beatles back catalogue, the Hollies, its rich! I’m sure that our dance teachers could put together a very special dance workshop for you too. Go go dancing from the 1960s podium dancers from top of the pops. It’s a fun rebellious era to draw on.
Here is a website I found with some food advice!
