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 13 welcome you to come and experience what ‘Peaches’ is all about.

Ella’s on holiday this week so yesterday I got to be Nic’s model at her hair masterclass! Since we opened hair world down in the Peaches basement Nic and I rarely get to work together. But when we do it’s just like the good old days back when we first started out … me skitting Nic and lots of eye rolling from her behind my back! I’m sure all our clients from back when we had our tiny salon on Garston Old road will all remember this kind of banter between us.
Modelling for Nic can be at times be a tad painful…. but everyone in the beauty industry lives by the mantra ‘no pain no gain’. And no matter what she does whether its a set of curls or one of her amazing updo’s your sure to feel the massive gain by the end of your appointment with Nic. Her exciting creations just keep getting bigger ( literally) and better as Peaches continues to grow.
So once or twice a month Nic holds a hair masterclass for clients and other hairdressers to come and learn some of the tricks behind her creations. The class costs £30 and consists of 3 different demonstrations. She normally asks everyone at the start which particular styles they want to learn as well as incorporating styles that are on trend at that the time in Peaches. Yesterday’s class included:
– a low, messy curly bun embellished with crystals perfect for weddings, balls or proms.
– an oversized ponytail with a braided quiff.
– and an elegant, swirly upd0 framed with a halo braid.
The class lasts between 2.5-3 hours during which time everyone can pick Nic’s brain for advice when doing other styles. We had a great day with everyone yesterday and are looking forward to hosting the next ones on 27th Nov, 11th Dec and 18th Dec. If you’d like to come call our lovely receptionist Laura to book your place on 0151 227 1669. Places must be paid for in full over the phone at the time of booking!
Enjoy the Pics,

This week we got a new camera to play with! So I’ve been experimenting with new makeup looks every day and taking none stop selfies to break the new lens in. Along the way I’ve ended up creating some fab ideas perfect for the festive season.
First up I put together a gorgeous silver smoke using the Peaches Christmas Eyeshadow trio of Pearl, Stella and Wicked!
Secondly I peached me and Nic for her hair masterclass yesterday! I created a glitter smoke using a Champagne Wishes Lit Kit, experimenting with a swarvoski crystal under eye eyeliner. To recreate this look you will need swarvoski crystals available from www.scattercrystals.co.uk. Apply this in your desired design using small dots of duo eyelash glue to secure the crystals. Then so she didn’t feel left out I gave Nic a gorgeous baby peachy/pink Abba glitter smoke!
Finally today I wanted to showcase some new eyelashes I bought last night at the trafford centre. Karl Lagerfield has launched a Shu Uemura makeup range called Shupette in tribute to his beloved ragdoll cat. Some of you may know that my mum has 3 amazing ragdolls Alfie, Scoochie & Boo Boo that all of us at Peaches adore! So I just had to purchase something from the collection. I opted for an unusual set of individual lashes layered with strands of silver tinsel and studded with blue crystals. I paired them with strong winged eyeliner, Peaches stella pigment and some more crystals on the lid for extra sparkle!
Hope these looks inspire you to try out something new over the festive season!
Have a fab weekend!
