A BEAUTY salon wound the clock back and had a blast from the past as it threw a 1940s-style launch party.
Music was provided by wartime tribute act The Air Raid Sirens. The new salon, which was opened by mayor of Southampton Cllr Sue Blatchford, has a retro theme with memorabilia and photographs adorning the wall.
Owner Ruth Lynch said: “We are doing all very modern treatment but we do have a makeup artist who does vintage makeup.”
The party also got the seal of approval from Ruth’s 92-yearold gran, Audrey Ryder, who was a nurse in Winchester during the 1940s.
Ruth added: “She said it was all very authentic.”
