Nail art is huge right now, with more lavish and intricate designs popping up all the time. Attention to detail is important for any burlesque enthusiast and coordinating nails are a fun and creative way to draw attention to your look. We are big fans of the blood nail art design, fabulous with a vamp red burlesque outfit or a Halloween striptease routine. The video guide below will take you through each step to creating an authentic and original look. For all nail and nail art supplies visit naildelights.com.
The seductive colour can also be applied to your whole hair. Be inspired by Rihanna who has got the red pin up look down perfectly, with a range of different styles.

Hollywood has been embracing the burlesque 1940’s style hair do all year, with an array of A listers opting for glamorous finger waves, rolls and pinned styles for red carpet events. Old Hollywood is back and celebrities are evoking the glamour of stars such as Elizabeth Taylor, Rita Hayworth and Marlene Dietrich.
It is essential for any burlesque performer or enthusiast to perfect their hairstyle for a performance or event. Burlesque hair styles should be coordinated somewhat with the burlesque outfits and for the performer, the routine should be considered when styling the hair. For inspiration – look to the celebrities who have, this year, adopted the 1940’s pin up styles as their own.
Take the lead from trend setting stars including Rihanna and Katy Perry and go glam for parties and events, burlesque or otherwise, when it comes to your hairstyle. There is of course the option to opt for a burlesque inspired wig if your hair is super short or you just can’t master the waves and rolls. We have a selection of burlesque wigs available in our celebrity wigs selection. A variety of shipping options are available for our European, Australian and American customers, while all UK residents can benefit from FREE delivery.
Corsets can be funky and trendy, not just a staple part of your burlesque clothing wardrobe.
