History of Vanity Van

About Vanity Van - Jo Whiley & Marina & the Diamonds

How Vanity Van started

The Vanity Van concept was conceived back in 2008 by Alix Soame who is the beloved owner of the original Vanity Van motor home.

After visiting many a festival over the years but not loving the traumatic effects that spending the weekend in a tent has on your looks and hair an idea was formed…

Providing onsite hair and beauty facilities seemed like the obvious solution and so the festival salon was born.

about-team-rylanFestival goers booked into the Vanity Van mobile beauty salon in their droves and their unique alfresco hair and beauty services have been in hot demand across the UK ever since.

Over the last few years their services have been extended into the artist liaison and backstage areas of these events and the team now work with dozens of artists and celebrities every summer.

The Vanity Van mobile beauty salon will be on tour this summer featuring at Glastonbury 2013 in the John Peel area for the fifth year running and backstage at a variety of UK festivals, concerts and shows.

The mobile beauty therapist team have also worked in the TV world most recently with the X factor preening the nails of contestants including Rylan, Union J, Jade and Ella!
