Friday 28 December | 2-4pm
Back by popular demand! Join us for an afternoon of glamour and styling as the House of Drewvid show you how to recreate authentic 1930s hairstyles.
David Dorling and Andrew Simonin will demonstrate signature looks from the 1930s, a time when short hair was still in vogue from the previous decade but softer, more feminine styles were also coming back in to fashion. There will also be an opportunity at the end of the master class to get answers to any of the vintage hairstyling questions you may have burning away. So if you want to learn your setting pattern from your shingling or your pomade from your pompadour, this is a master class not to be missed!
David Dorling and husband Andrew Simonin are collectively known as the House of Drewvid, and have combined experience of over 20 years in the British TV, film and theatre industry.

In addition to their film work, they founded the House of Drewvid in 2009 and offer a variety of cutting and styling services from their home studio as well as developing their own range of styling products.
