First Leeds then world domination..Le Keux Vintage Salon has already caused quite a stir with their Birmingham boutique salon and now they've spread their ruby slippered feet further north to Leeds with the launch of their second salon.
Vintage style has certainly been causing a stir and when 50's inspired 'dos, half moon manicures and glossy red lips have been adorning many a couture catwalk it's no surprise why. You really can't beat a bit of classic glamour and that's something whichLe Keux have been providing their customers with ever since their mobile salon first took off.
Popping up at vintage fairs, burlesque shows and hen do's across the country they soon built themselves a reputation as the ladies to visit for a pin up perfect make over and when you see the results on their facebook page it's no wonder why. Perfectly crafted victory rolls, gorgeous waves and curls and bombshell make overs are their speciality.
Their expertise knows no bounds and they certainly live and breathe vintage, their salon is a lovingly re-created 50's diner crossed over with vintage salon styling. Powder blue dressers sit next to pink cadillac sofas, vintage domed hair dryers and red stools, the look and feel instantly transports you back in time, and of course they've re-created the look of their Birmingham salon in their new Leeds salon.
What's impressive about Le Keux is the wide range of services that they offer, not just vintage up 'dos and pin curls, they also offer a full hair dressing service at both of their salons, so if you've ever been dying to have a Carla Bow bob or Bettie Page fringe they can do it here for you putting their vintage knowledge into each and every hair cut.

Vintage make overs, pin up shoots and even make up master classes are their forte, if you can think of it chances are they can re-create it for it you. They've even expanded to the world of make up with the launch of their cosmetics range in the past couple of years, their lip paints just have to be tried to create the perfect peachy lip.
