If you've got a party you want to put a bit of extra effort into or you're trying to think of a place to start your hen night, go and see Laura at Paper Dress Vintage. You pick a hair and make-up style from her look book and she does it while your friends look around the shop, eat cake, drink tea or something a whole lot stronger. At night the boutique is transformed into a music venue so you might not want to go anywhere else after.

I brought my friend Claudia to see what it was like. When we told Hannah, the owner of Paper Dress, the hairstyle we had chosen she was really helpful and picked out some dresses for Claudia to try on. The teal was our favourite but the others were lovely too, the shoes are also from Paper Dress. The hair and make-up stayed put until late into the evening, apart from the lipstick which she took off on purpose before we really went for it on burgers. 

Laura also does hair and make-up for weddings. As she was working on Claudia, she was talking about what that involves. We got some really good hair and make-up tips. She takes tonnes of pride in her work and she's thought of everything.

In the second last picture on the post I made the lights in the background that shape by cutting a heart in a piece of card and covering the lens of my camera with it. It's a bit cheesy but I'm a bit obsessed with it. You can cut the card to any shape and that's the shape it'll make the lights. 

I took the last picture at a wedding fair a few weeks ago.  I've added it to this post because if you're having the kind of hen night that starts at a vintage boutique, you might want something different from the usual hen party accessories. The girl who makes the badges also hand makes vintage style sashes, L plates and flags which double up as straws. I think they'd look great on a Paper Dress Vintage Hen.
