Event description

Description

Discover the changing faces of Essex style. Take a look at photographs of local people’s experiments with fashion, hair and make-up, and listen to audio recordings collected at our historical beauty salon (Beauty School Drop In). The exhibition will highlight changes to women’s lives, celebrate the diversity of women’s health experiences, and investigate ideas around femininity: demystifying the beauty secret.

Join us to discover changes in self-expression and style across generations and to hear more about the history of local women’s everyday lives.

Drop in at any time!


This event is one of a series on women’s health and beauty, organised as part of the Being Human Festival:
