LIKE A BOSS?
Let’s be honest, vintage
hairstyles look like they require
a team of wizards to complete.
But, as the delightful Ally from
The Vintage Valley proves,
anyone can do it with the right
instruction. As a self-taught
aficionado, she knows exactly
what us amateurs need to
do to achieve a style your
grandmother would love.
Starting with a cute collection
of tools, including bobby
pins, hairspray and a standing
mirror, each lady gets the
chance to curl, clip and tease
their locks, with individual
feedback to keep you on track. Between attempting
victory rolls and Gibson tucks, everyone is treated to
delicious coffee and cakes from the lads at neighbouring
outfit Virgil Coffee. After two hours of old-fashioned fun,
you’ll leave with a horde of selfies, retro accessories, and
some serious bragging rights. Nanna would be so proud.
Need to know
• The Vintage Hair How-To classes can be held at
a location of your choice, as a fun alternative to the
traditional hens’ night or girly afternoon.
• Beginner and advanced classes are available, with all
equipment provided. Public classes are held at the
charming Studio Bomba creative agency in Leederville.
• Dressing up is encouraged. Keep with the theme and hit
the town for a martini or two.

DINE WITH A BUNCH
Remember how easy it was to meet
people, back in the day? At school, uni,
your first part-time job... some of the
best friendships came from being thrown
together and forced to mingle. Some savvy
folks have cottoned on to how we’ve lost
that social aspect of our lives, and created
the perfect platform to make new mates.
The Stranger Danger dinners remove
the awkwardness from approaching new
people – so you won’t feel like a creep –
and encourage conversation in a post-smartphone
world. Judging by the “phenomenal” response since
they launched in July, it sounds like Perth’s social
scene had a gap to be filled.
Need to know
• Dinner venues vary, but previous locations have
included Mary’s, Budburst Small Bar, Lot Twenty
and Hopscotch Bar.
• The brains behind the operation are keen to
keep most details under wraps (it all adds to the
mystery). But for more info, start by searching for
their Facebook page, and follow the instructions.
• We’ve been told there will be secret and exciting
pop-up events over the summer, with sit-down
dinners relaunching after the festival season.
