Who’s That Girl?
I’m Alex, the woman behind Very Bettie. How did I get here? Well, I have always had a love affair with make up and hair, and in particular, the style of yesteryear.
It all started with my Grandmother, who no matter what the situation always looked so beautiful. We used to talk about shoes, dresses, lipstick and hair. She was proud to have been a model for Cutex in her youth and would never leave the house without well polished nails and a nice coral lip! She introduced me via magazines and films to some of my favourite style idols: Elizabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall, and Audrey Hepburn. She would sip Gin & Tonic as she told me stories from not only her past but of the icons of the 20th Century, like the scandal of the glamourous Wallis Simpson and King Edward, showing me photos from the magazines she had collected over the years. I was spellbound, gripped by the glitz, the glamour and the drama.
I became the girl giving her classmates lessons on applying eyeliner. I would spend my pocket money on make-up or beg my mum to give me her ‘hand me downs’ instead of giving them to my older sister.
It was inevitable I would end up where I am today. I love what I do; nothing gives me greater satisfaction than seeing how I have been able to boost a woman’s self esteem and confidence – I am here to work with you to achieve the style you are after.
