POWDER ROOM for all your retro-beauty parlor needs

Image

Back in 1961 the legendary Holly Golightly casually declares in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to take 50$ from her generous dates each time she goes to the Powder Room, today in 2012 at the POWDER ROOM on Columbia Road in London for that same price one might get treated to a “Jiffy Make-up” a “Speedy Hair Do”or a fast manicure. In the hands of pretty pin-up girls, stylishly dressed in pink & black uniforms, in a 40’s interior screaming retro-glam in every detail, the ladies fancying to pop in this charming little shop can have a complete make-over Hollywood classics style while sipping cocktails & tasting pretty puffy pastries. In the 1944 film by Vincent Sherman, Bette Davis firmly says in the words of Mrs. Skeffington  “A woman is beautiful if she sleeps 8 hours every night and goes to the Beauty Parlor every day…” well, next time I decide to follow that piece of advice I exactly know where I should go: 136 Columbia Road!

  3. thanks Erwin!!! You rock!
    …well I just learned that the Powder Room on Columbia road is closing down. Sad. They’ll re-open an office somewhere else in London (I’ll post the address as soon as I know) and will keep being fantabulous and available to treat anyone for a glam-retro-make-over on a private base or for parties and events! check their website for news
