Would you like to look like Betty Draper from Mad Men? Or maybe Joan Harris is your favourite character. A talented and experienced makeover team will offer retro makeup and hairstying at the fair.
Makeup artist Christian Loh and hair stylist Louise Joyce will head up the team conducting glamorous retro makeovers to complement the stylish vintage fashion from your favourite decade.  Christian is a senior stylist with Smashbox, and has done work for TV and fashion shoots, collaborating with some of Ireland’s top stylists and fashion models.


Louise trained with Vidal Sasoons in the UK, and for years worked alongside some of the greats in the fashion industry. As part of the international artistic team for Vidal Sassoon she traveled extensively working on stage and back stage. Louise helped launch the Sassoon spring/summer autumn/winter collections (as with fashion designers, Sassoon also had their seasonal “looks”) and has worked for fashion shows, TV commercials , music videos & movies , editorial shoots and photo shoots. Now with family committments, and back home in Galway, Louise has decided to go “freelance”, doing work for commercial and private clients, from photo shoots to weddings. 

Photographer Fiona McGuire is the official photographer for the Vintage Fashion & Decor Fair, and will operate a photo booth where you can order photos and instant prints. Fiona specialises in Fashion & Model photography, with particular experience in portfolio development for people in the fashion and beauty industry. Once you have the outfit, the hair and the makeup, Fiona and her assistant Gillian will capture you at your most glamorous, and will even do a mini photo shoot if you require images for a professional portfolio.
