About Me

Welcome to my blog!
I am vintage and pinup style enthusiast and this blog is a showcase for everything I love in my life. Trained hairdresser and makeup artist, the years of working on clients and practicing on my own hair led me to specialize in perfectly sculpted vintage do’s.

My passion for this style has led me to travel to places like Viva Las Vegas, model with international companies TopVintage and Miss Candyfloss, been on the cover of Glory Days Magazine and Vintage Life Magazine, appeared on live television and won several pinup competitions such as Miss Pinup New Zealand 2014 and Miss Viva Las Vegas 18 (2015). 

After moving to London, UK from New Zealand in 2016, I decided to take a break from full time hairdressing and focus on my blog and modelling. This evolved into teaching vintage hair workshops which sold out around Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Now back in Auckland, New Zealand, I continue to tour with my workshops, work with brands around the world on social media collaborations and modelling.

I hope you enjoy everything I have to offer, be sure to subscribe and get in touch if you are wanting to chat about sponsorship, modelling or advertising so I can send you my media kit.

  6. Dear Miss Victory Violet. I just discovered you online and I ask myself. How did we get away from an era where the ladies looked so classy? It goes without saying, that you look very classy. And hopefully can widespread this fashion back to our society just one more time.

    • Just read this blog post, and I couldn’t help but notice your comment. It is so true, I wish there was a return to some of the respect and moral code that my husband and I teach our children in our home. People used to have class, not just the women. Dress codes were different. Looking beautiful or handsome didn’t mean exposing skin at one time. Hoping this trend does become more widespread too.
