For all of human history, we have been doing things to make our bodies beautiful, in honour of our current exhibition ‘The Art of Self-Expression; facial hair and tattoos through the ages’, we will be showcasing some of the ways that you can style yourself.
Over the May bank holiday weekend, the museum will be hosting a wide variety of artists, stylists and general beautifiers, so that you can come in and try out a new style for your hair, skin, or nails. There will be something for all ages, from face painting for kids to vintage hair styling for adults.
Specific activities will vary across days, further details will be publicised closer to the event.
If you are interested in being one of our artists or stylists for a day or more during this event then email the team – you must be able to supply copies of all the relevant insurance and licenses to take part.
