Vintage Pin Up Hair and Makeup Workshops with Mistress J Kiss

Back in July I posted on Buffalo Burlesque Studio’s success in finding a new home (see here). Since that time, studio operator Jamie “Mistress J Kiss” Doktor has been busy. First, she held a grand opening celebration, and then she got down to business by offering an assortment of dance classes. Now that she has settled in, Mistress J Kiss is hosting a variety of retro beauty classes including the highly anticipated Vintage Pin Up Hair and Makeup Workshops. 

The world needs more pin ups.

The pin up scene is hot. From the hot rod cars to the pole dancing craze, the pin-up look is very popular these days. But looking like a pin up is not easy. Take it from the pros. It takes a lot of practice getting done up right. Thankfully, there are the Mistress Js of the world who are here to make it easier for you to make the transition from everyday working stiff to glamorous man killer.

“There is something so classic about black winged eyeliner and a red lip,” said Mistress J Kiss. “So simple is the look, and yet it captures your attention the moment you see a woman dressed and adorned in a vintage look. Pin curls and elegant waves can make anyone look polished and glamorous.

“I really think the appeal of the Vintage Look is the simplicity of it all. Theses days we are constantly in a hurry trying to get to school, work, and maybe a date once in a while. It doesn’t take much effort to put on some red lipstick. But the elegance of that red pout can truly make a girl look and feel beautiful.

“These workshops are hands-on, which means everyone does it themselves. That way a skill is learned and then carried on into their everyday routine. Some women want to learn how to create a whole new look with a vintage flair. Some women want to get all dressed up because it feels really good. I have moms and daughters and best friends come to these workshops. It’s something unique and different. And it’s a ton of fun! These workshops make a great gift as well.”

Learn how to:

  • Apply the perfect red lip
  • Wing the eyeliner
  • Get that fresh rosy glow
  • Hair workshops – full set and brush out, authentic victory rolls

Whether you’re interested in participating in a Vintage Pin Up Hair and Makeup Workshop for fun, or as a lifestyle choice, there are plenty of classes to choose from. Stay tuned to, or check out The Buffalo Burlesque Studio Facebook page.
