Carol Ritchie Goes Retro at Goodwood

Matrix Artist Ambassador, Carol Ritchie, joined racegoers and lovers of vintage fashion at the Goodwood Revival festival, creating vintage styling to festival goers who wanted to hark back to the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

Carol Ritchie worked at the Betty’s iconic salon on Richmond Lawn with a team of vintage hair stylists over the three-day event. Established in 2010 by Lisa George, Betty’s is an integral part of the festival, with the vintage hair stylists offering 1940s victory rolls, a glamorous set of 1950s curls or a chic 1960s beehive.

Carol said: “I love working at Goodwood Revival Festival as it’s so much fun and you get to meet some incredible characters. Everyone dresses up and our victory rolls are a real favourite.”

Carol explains how to create a 1940s Victory Roll

1 Add some movement to the hair with either a tong or curl bar.

2 Gently backcomb and add Matrix Height Riser to hold the curl together.

3 Smooth out the top section so the backcombing is hidden, the smooth around your fingers and pin into place.
