For pin-up worthy tresses, Nina’s Hair Parlour at Alfie’s Antiques (the UK’s original vintage hair salon) will take you from blah to bombshell in no time. The parlour’s decor is gloriously kitsch, with an abundance of gold, animal print and retro trinkets. While the eponymous founder Nina Butkovich-Budden and the fabulous Issadora (‘If Madonna can go by one name, then so can I’) immaculately recreate looks from the belle epoque to the decadent ’80s from £45. If you’re a vintage queen it’s worth investing in a two-hour hair masterclass with one of the ladies (£150), who will show you how to recreate the styles of three eras of your choice.
