For Him... Seven Decades of Male Grooming at Boots

Wednesday 8 November, 10am-1pm
Performing Arts Studio
Coffee and buffet lunch provided

The Boots Archive team invites you to join them on a journey through the last 70 years of male grooming and fashion, from the quiff to the mullet – and back again! 

Come along and find out more about the twentieth century history of male style, and share your memories of the hairstyles, aftershaves and fashion ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ of past decades with Boots UK archivists and researchers from the Universities of Nottingham and Birmingham.

Please note, places are limited so booking is required.
