Flamenco Makeup and Hair Tutorial

Hello flamenco fans everywhere!

spanish flamenco makeup and hairToday is the first day in my trip in the history of makeup with this Flamenco Hair and Makeup tutorial. Weird place to start I know, but this look is inspired by the amazing beauty of flamenco (and flamenco is really fun to say). For those of you know don’t know, flamenco is a dance that originated in Spain. It’s beautiful because not only is watching the dancers fly a

cross the stage just amazing, their costumes are fantastic as well. Flamenco is, to me, a less blatantly sexual version of the Tango- but it still has an undeniable sexiness that keeps your eyes on the dancers the whole time. Basically, flamenco is awesome lol.

What is Flamenco?

spanish flamenco makeup and hair tutorialFlamenco is a mix of singing, guitar, hand clapping, and dance. It’s also most associated with the Gitanos, or gypsies (yep, this just got way more romance novel-y!) Flamenco wasn’t actually used a a genre or even a musical term until the 18th century. Outside of music, flamenco was used to describe a loud, or arrogant person, and would explain why the costumes for the dancers and players alike are so embellished and stand out so much  (Seriously, when was the last time you saw someone in full

flamenco get up and didn’t notice them?).

Fun Flamenco Facts

spanish flamenco makeup and hairOddly enough, flamenco gained so much popularity in the 19th century that it had schools for this dance everywhere. Here’s the odd part: Japan has more flamenco schools today than Spain does. Gotta love when amazing things spread around the world. So with that in mind, the flamenco tourists see is not a true true form of flamenco. the truest form in our day and age is at Romani weddings, in second place comes the formally trained flamenco dancers.

  1. I adore Flamenco and the hair and makeup is stunning. It’s so interesting to see how it has expanded all over the world. I can’t believe how there are more Flamenco schools in Japan than there are in Spain! Wow!

  2. Is there a baseball euphemism for make up? This sure looks like a walk off home run!
    Stellar job; you are gorgeous.
