Make Up Artist Turns Vintage Plane Into Salon In Her Garden

A make up artist from Scotland has spent 26 Lacs to convert an aircraft into a salon in her garden. Twenty five year old Amber Scott was gifted the 1957 plane by her parents, who bought it in 2007 for approx 27 lacs to convert it into a Bed and Breakfast accommodation. Scott has retained several original features, including plane seats used as waiting chairs.

Amber says she has ‘always loved’ doing make-up, and has even traveled to the US to learn from the best. She completed an internship on-demand hair and makeup business Vênsette in New York, before shadowing make-up artists at a trade show in LA. Describing her love of make-up, Amber said: ‘I I know it sounds stupid, but when I was younger I didn’t realize makeup could actually be a job.

‘When I was 13 my mum and dad had a big Halloween party and hired a makeup artist and she was the one who told me to go to college for it.’

Amber managed to keep the salon a secret for months, before a grand unveiling on Wednesday night.She has already received a huge amount of support, gaining more than 2,000 fans on Facebook for her salon.Amber says she now hopes to hold Halloween masterclasses so that women can learn how to do fake blood and the popular sugar skull designs.

Her mother Tricia, said: ‘I’m so proud of her. She’s really good at her job, it was inevitable that she would be successful.’

The plane weighs 22 tons and was previously owned by Portuguese airline company ACEF. Many plane enthusiasts have visited the backyard of Reynard Nursery, owned by Amber’s parents, to look at the aircraft over the years.

The aircraft has flown more than seven million miles, and Elvis Presley had a plane of the same type.
