If you’ve visited us recently you’ll have noticed that Miss Dixiebelle has had a bit of a makeover. We’ve lost all the lingerie from the back of the shop in favour of a brand new hair and beauty salon! We still have our downstairs salon which we’ll be using mostly for our Vintage Hen Parties, extra busy days and eventually treatments plus we still have plenty space for all your favourite repro vintage clothing lines at the front of the shop (it’s a tardis in here!)
The new salon houses Cutiecool nails http://www.cutiecoolnails.com/ who specialises in those classic 1940′s half moon nails amongst lots of other things, check out her site for a full list of services and prices.
We have also welcomed Angela to the MDB team, a hairdresser with 20 years in the business she’s a regular on the Rockabilly scene so knows her midi cuts from her ‘Bettie Bangs’ as well as being an awesome colourist who’s not afraid to bring out the bleach and ‘Crazy Colours’ when asked!
In addition to colouring, we’ve also added wet sets, perming and pamper packages to our list of services. For more information on any of this visit our Edinburgh parlour page here: http://www.missdixiebelle.co.uk/vintage_styling_edinburgh.htm or call 0131 629 7783.
To celebrate our new salon and services we’re offering a 20% discount on cuts, colours and perms with Angela, up to and including Saturday 12th April 2014 (offer excludes vintage hair and makeup, nails and pamper packages) Her next available date is Saturday 15th March, call 0131 629 7783 to book

The Ava dress by Pinup Girl Clothing in teal (also available in black)
- New Glamour Bunny Dresses have just arrived at Miss Dixiebelle
It’s that time of year again where we’re all thinking about what to wear for our New Year parties and nights out. We’ve recently had a delivery from British Designer ‘Glamour Bunny’ just in time for your Hogmanay antics. If, like me you’re feeling the effects of over indulging over these last few days, fear not. Glamour Bunny dresses are famed for their flattering cuts in classic 1950′s shapes. (With the right underwear no one will ever know!…naturally we recommend What Katie Did)
Also, back in stock is the Ava dress by our favourite American company Pinup Girl Clothing. We currently have it in Teal and Black. The wrap over detail around the middle and capped sleeve again make it a flattering choice that everyone seems to look great in!
If you prefer a full skirted look we have this amazing striped, full circle dress, with lined and boned bodice. Team it with a coloured underskirt for some added fun and to perfectly enhance that 1950′s silhouette. It also comes in a red version with cute gingham pockets and a removable halter strap.
You can find all our new stock here : http://eshop.missdixiebelleboutique.co.uk/epages/BT4427.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/BT4427/Categories/NEW.
We’ve also been spending today sorting out what’s going the sale…You’ll find all of those here:

Well, the decs are packed away for another year and the New Year’s
Resolutions are firmly in place (or already broken?) so it’s time to turn our
attention to February, and with it of course Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re already
smitten, a single gal or even a cynical heartbreaker we have an evening planned
to banish those winter blues. We’re spreading the love Dixiebelle style!
We’re very excited to be joined by Karen Barr of ‘Beswitchedon’
Karen decribes herself as a ‘Professional
Fairy Godmother’ and teaches a practical and fun approach to help you attract
However, as we know you’re not all single, Karen will be
concentrating on a ‘Flirting’ class. A skill that that can be used in all
aspects of life whether you’re married or searching for your Don Draper (other stereotypical
50’s male icons are available)
We’ll also be basing our styling tutorial on a ‘make him
look twice’ look, perfect for date night! This will be demonstrated by Ariana
and Layla, our resident aficionados in retro styling.
We’ll finish the evening off with an exclusive burlesque
performance by the beautiful Miss Leyla Rose. Swoon!
As well as all this of course there will be time for
shopping with a 10% discount on the night, fizz in teacups and some sweet
nibbles to keep us going.
I’ll be on hand to do corset fits and Ariana, Layla and
Natasha are open to vintage hair and makeup questions.
Tickets are £20.00, places are limited to just 20 and are
available now! Call 0131 629 7783 to book yours.
Love Miss Dixiebelle xx

Tis the season… to be glam as far as we’re concerned. If you’re thinking of coming in to have your hair and/or makeup done over the party season we recommend you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Missy Malone will be performing at Miss Dixiebelle this December!Missy Malone at Miss Dixiebelle
It’s that time of year again folks. I’m sorry to mention the ‘C’ word in November but this has to be shared …only 4 weeks to go! (to our party, not Christmas!)
We love our vintage styling nights and our Christmas one is always a bit special. Last year Leyla Rose was our evening muse and this year it will be the beautiful Missy Malone! She hasn’t performed in our *very* intimate boutique setting since Christmas 2010 so we’re over the moon that she’s coming back.
As well as a special performance from Missy we’ll be doing a Christmas styling special. We’ll show you how to create those perfect vintage glamour looks, just in time for your Christmas parties. Starting from the very basics of vintage style underwear and stockings, to dresses and outer wear and finally the essential hair and makeup looks to finish it all off.
We’ll concentrate on 2 main party looks, a classic 40′s look and a classic 50′s one aswell as the perfect retro Christmas day look. You’ll be able to ask the girls any questions and pick up tips to help you achieve the looks yourselves at home.
I’ll be on hand to do corset fittings and there will be exclusive 10% discount across the boutique and hair parlour bookings plus prizes on the night too.
Come sip Christmas cocktails in teacups and nibble festive treats with us at this special party night.
Tickets are £20.00 and available over the phone or in the boutique.
