For years I’d admired elaborate rolled hair dos, curls and fingerwaves, but remained totally convinced (with good reason after years of half hearted experimentation) that the most I could expect of my fine flat hair was a small bun. Then in December I met Flamingo Amy. She’s a vintage hair stylist, based in Norwich, and I attended a vintage hair demonstration at local salon Flint. Well, it changed my life (ok, so it really just changed my hair, but I’m allowed a little hyperbole, right?)
A good hair do really does finish off an outfit and Flamingo Amy is really enthusiastic about good hair do’s! She works at Flint on Saturdays creating gorgeous vintage hair creations for the lovely ladies of Norwich. You can see some of her creations on the Flamingo Amy Website, where you’ll also find all the details on how to book an appointment if you fancy treating yourself.
Last week I popped along to spend the day at a photo shoot she was styling for. The shoot was for photographer Bettina Bianculli, make-up artist Amii-Rose Steward and Flamingo Amy to work on their portfolios and took place in the beautiful surroundings of the bar of the Birdcage in Norwich, which is a gorgeous Art Deco building with an eclectic interior which you can see in the video at the bottom.
While I was there I filmed a little interview in which she shares how she got started, how to get the best out of an appointment with her and some top tips if you want to try out Victory Rolls on your own hair.
I hope you enjoy it! Sorry about the sound being a little out. I’ve recently got my mitts on a new camera, which I hope will improve future videos, but we’ll see!
