#Barba Italiana now in the UK

#BarbaItaliana beard location

It’s arrived! The most exciting and innovative new professional men’s grooming range from Italy based on natural formulations and essential oils is now available to British guys. Vintage Hair Lounge is proud to announce that #Barba Italiana has forged a new distribution partnership with our sister company VHL Distribution, for England and Wales, and our very first stockist is Changes salon group new Barbers in Willen, Milton Keynes. This young dynamic brand combines the appeal and history of traditional barbering, which we love, and the forward thinking ethical sourcing and natural ingredients that the men’s grooming market has been thus far quite slow in adapting to.

#BarbaItaliana range

#Barba Italiana has created a complete range of products for the wellness of man. The styling range, made from Grapeseed and named after Italian wines, will be arriving in May, having only recently launched at Cosmoprof Bologna. The line also comprises product for the beard and for shaving, as well as outstanding shampoo and conditioning products for the hair, all named after Italian artists. The whole range is packed with essential oils. Those that have followed Vintage Hair Lounge for some time will know how much we love Davines, another natural based high quality hair brand made in Italy, and we continue to value the superior effects the Davines products produce for the kind of hairstyling work we do. #Barba Italiana will be a more than worthy complement to this range, offering a line that has put the man and his wellbeing at its centre.

We will be taking #Barba Italiana to the Wales Hair and Beauty Show in Cardiff on 8 May, and on to Barber Connect in Wales 26-27 June. Expect to see #Barba Italiana at Goodwood Revival too this year, as Vintage Hair Lounge hosts our own retail emporium alongside our hair and makeup salon.

We have now created our own UK based #Barba Italiana social media, so do follow and join in the discussions as the brand takes its first steps into the UK.

Vintage Hair Lounge and Bésame Cosmetics at Vintage Nostalgia Show 2015

Vintage Nostalgia Show

Vintage Nostalgia Show is without doubt one of the best family friendly vintage summer festivals to visit this year.

Launched in 2012 this unique event has become one of our favourite events of the year, as Vintage Hair Lounge hosts the only on-site vintage hair and makeup salon with our own team of Vintage Hair Lounge trained hair stylists and makeup artists.

Our Vintage Hair Lounge and Bésame Cosmetics team will be staying on site this year, as we try a bit of “glamping” and get involved in the show in lots of new fun ways!
