Once upon a time there were two girls called Kate and Nicola who met in college studying theatrical makeup in 2003. A chance encounter that has since changed the faces of Liverpool (literally) for good. With their love of creative fashion and theatre makeup combined,the two girls had a dream ,that one day they would together rule the makeup world.
Still on our quest, we are delighted to share with you our fabulous one of a kind, words can’t describe, makeup studio in the heart of the Liverpool. Having grown our family along the way, our now team of 8 welcome you to come and experience what ‘Peaches’ is all about.
Our concept is to provide a celebrity service for the everyday girl. We provide a range of makeovers for all occasions and ages, making you look and feel the best you’ve ever felt.
Aswell as Makeup and Hair styling we also offer a range of quick fix beauty treatments, including nails, spray tans and brow shaping in our boutique style beauty lounge Flamingo Island.
Having launched our own range of false Eyelashes in Topshop, we look forward to keeping you updated on what lies around the corner for ‘Peaches’ next via our blog.
We hope that our story inspires you.

Little Katie here…
Just thought I would write a little blog to tell you what’s been happening here in peaches this week!!! Well we’ve been very busy little bee’s this week ! As spring is on it’s way we have certainly done our spring clean here at Peaches and of course we’ve had help from Big Mare ( as she is the cleaning queen). Big Mare came in and created the most beautiful flower arrangements to jazz up our new waiting room ! They are all spring bright colours and look perfect with the new buys from Zara home that Kate got earlier on this week ! New treats such a new vibrant cushions and new makeup photo albums from paper chase. It’s just nice to freshen up the salon as spring approaches we’ve even given the walls a scrub!
Lil peachy Nic and Bec have ventured down into what we call the weave cave , which I can say after a massive refurb is certainly no cave but hair world heaven!! We have a range of new weaves and ponies in store and Nic has been busy this week updating our YouTube channel ( Peaches Liverpool) with new hair tutorials for you all! All links for all makeup videos and hair videos are on our website
We also opened early on Wednesday morning for early birds wanting to get an appointment for Ladies Day at Aintree races this April. The appointments are so in demand for this day that we actually have a queue for them down the street they day they are released to book!
The big news (literally) at Peaches this week was Ella’s ( who I call my little tinker bell) has had an article published about her apprenticeship in Peaches in our local paper The Liverpool Echo!! We are all so proud of Ella … her article is really inspiring to young girls her age and shows that with determination and hard work her dream of becoming a makeup artist and wanting to become a peach has come true . In her article it tells the story how she become a peach and describes what it takes! Which also takes me on to the other big thing happening this week….. Nicola and Bec are looking for a new Peach to help them take over Liverpool with Peaches weaves , Ponies and unreal hair styles! To find out how to apply check out the last blog post before this.
Well I bope you’ve enjoyed reading about all the antics that have been occuring this week at
Peaches and hope you all have a lovely weekend lots of love Little Katie xxxxxx
Due to the fact that everyone is loving Weave World at Peaches, I’ve made a few quick videos to show you how easy it is to apply our weaves.
If you’re not a hairdresser, it can be daunting to attempt something new with your hair. With this in mind, we’ve decided to go back to basics and give you beginners tips for each piece.
I know lots of you love our big, elaborate hair ups, and don’t worry – we’ll be showing you how to do those very soon! For now, these are simple step-by-step guides to getting your weave to feel secure, blend into your natural hair and look fabulous in a flash.
Raise your hand if you’re new to “Weave World” and haven’t got a clue what we are talking about? Well, a weave is Peaches’ newest product and we’re so excited about it. You can buy online or pop in-store for a free colour match when you purchase. They’ve proven to be one of our most popular products ever – women of all ages are loving them because they’re suitable for everyone and give luscious, healthy locks in seconds.
Never tried a weave before? You’re going to love them! We’ve had such varied feedback from our clients on how they use them. Some of you use them at home, some have taken them on holiday for fuss-free great hair, and some of you have even told us that you take them to work on a Friday ready to clip in and head straight to the bar! If simplicity is your thing, they’re even great to add some extra volume and depth to your natural hair.
Lots of our regular clients maintain alternative hair extensions and pay thousands on the upkeep. So girls, what’s the harm in trying our range? It will cost you a fraction of what you’re used to paying and you’ll be able to maintain it quickly and easily yourself. Not to mention you’ll be saving your hair lots of long-term damage. Pop in and see us – you can have a look or have a colour match before you commit to buy.
All in all we Peaches are just loving working with them to create the amazing hairstyles you see uploaded regularly. They’re our Instagram pictures in a box!

Love Nic (Baby Peach) who will be looking after you
Each week I do a training session with the other Peaches for us all to refresh our skills and to try out new ideas. Today I took them on a trip back to the 1920′s to teach them how to achieve the signature skinny brows & dark smokes of this era.
I’m sure most of you saw ( & loved) The Great Gatsby last year…. well thats what I’m taking about. A time for partying and letting your hair down after the first world war. Famous film stars of the time Clara Bow, Edith Piaf & Marlene Dietrich set the trends ( the Kardashians of their time) with women wanting to mimick their thin long brows, dark pouting lips & their heavily defined eye sockets.
To create this look on Ella I did the following…
- I used a mixture of soap paste to flattened down the hairs above and below Ella’s natural brow shape leaving a much slimmer , rounder brow.
- I then concealed ontop of the dried soap paste to camouflage the hairs. I then powdered the concealor to set it.
- I repeated the above conceal & powder to make sure all the unwanted brow was covered.
- I then dug out my old theatrical college eye shadow palette by Grimas. The colours are all matt so perfect for a 20′s look as shimmer doesn’t photograph in Black and White as well. I used Cream on the brow bone and lid, then built up dark browns and black right accross the socket and under the eye.
- I used Black Shadow to heavily line the upper and lower lashes. For the lashes I used Peaches Style No.2′s with a set of No.5 on top.
- For the base I used L’oreal True Match Foundation in Porcelain powdered with Mac Prep & Prime loose powder. I then applied a tawny matt grimas blush under the cheekbones and a touch to the temples.
- For the perfect pout I covered the lips in foundation then used a berry coloured lip pencil to exaggerate the natural cupids bow of Elle’s lips. I then filled the lips in with Film Noir lipstick by Mac.
-To complete the look I rolled Ella’s hair up around a bun ring at the nap of her neck to create a sleek 20′s style bob!
Once complete the look didn’t quite look right with Ella’s Peaches pinny and jeans so I sent her round to one of our favourite shops ‘ Boudoir Boutique’. The Girls in their are fab and the clothes are to die for… as is the interior of the boutique which made the perfect setting for our 20′s style photoshoot.
Next Week we’ll be covering makeup from the 1940/50′s so be sure to check out the blog to see how we get on with it!
Hope you enjoyed this little blast from the past.
