Internet superstar to bring vintage masterclasses to Edinburgh

An internet sensation who carved a career out of uploading easy-to-follow vintage hair and makeup tutorials on the internet is set to host two exclusive events in Edinburgh.

Cherry Dollface, whose YouTube channel has amassed over 21million views in less than five years, will visit Causewayside’s Lipstick, Lashes and Locks in September to spend three hours teaching participants how to master pinup looks inspired by the likes of Bettie Page, Veronica Lake and Dita Von Teese.

The model and stylist, who is based in California, has spent the past few years travelling the world teaching vintage fans how to master winged eyeliner, achieve glamorous pin curls and perfect the art of red lipstick. Her first Scottish event, which was held in Edinburgh last year, was a complete sell out and she is returning on Friday 2 September due to popular demand.

Whilst she’s here, Cherry will also be teaming up with local photographer Carolyn Henry to offer group photoshoots on Saturday 3 September. During these shoots, Cherry will work her magic to transform clients into vintage bombshells before they partake in their own pinup photoshoots.

When I had the opportunity to bring my vintage hair and makeup classes and shoots back to Edinburgh, I jumped,” Cherry explained to AAA. “It is, in my humble opinion, one of the most magical cities in the world and I cannot wait to explore it more and hug all the Scottish babes I can!”

Cherry’s vintage masterclass will take place on Friday 2 September from 6pm until 9pm and costs £83 per person.  Pinup photoshoots will take place on Saturday 3 September and cost £250. For more information, please email [email protected]
