In-Salon Styling

Special Event Hair and Makeup

Feel at ease knowing that you’ll be looked after and nurtured in the lead up to you going off to whatever fabby event you’ve got on.
No need to run between locations as you can get your hair and makeup done in one place. You can even bring your clothes with you and get changed in the studio and head on over to your event straight from the chair. 

 

There are 2 options available to cater to differing budgets and time limits. 

Note: Please advise if you have extra long or thick hair as more time will need to be allowed, and an additional charge of $30pp applies. All of our products are cruelty-free (not tested on animals) and we have vegan-friendly options too. (Because ultra-glamorous, special event hair and makeup doesn’t have to cost the earth…)

Let’s deep dive into bringing the kind of beautiful look that you’re after for your special event to life. More time is allowed than in the express service which means more care; allowing for complicated looks to be created and finessed. The focus of this service is on quality rather than speed. This means that we can be thoughtful with our application of makeup as well as constructing a beautiful, long lasting ‘do.

There are so many pathways to confidence, looking and feeling good being one of them.

Things you need to know:
  • We don’t subscribe to trends or take a cookie cutter approach to hair, makeup & beauty. Everybody is different and thus has different needs and tastes.
  • We’re not going to tell you that you’re not enough and need to change.
    You are whole and perfect as you are. We’re only here to celebrate you.
  • We’re here to support you and nurture you throughout the process of transformation especially in the lead up to an event that might be making you a little nervous or unsettled.
  • This is a collaborative process - we work together to come up with a look that’ll have you feeling unshakeable.
  • We’re sensitive, intuitive and empathetic bunnies committed to creating a safe space for you to unfurl before your big event.
  • This is a queer friendly and inclusive business. No matter what you identify as, know that you’ll be welcomed with open arms.
  • Our services can be used for weddings, special events, pamper parties, workshops, headshots, editorial work and any other scenario for which you’d like some glamourous support.
Our little styling studio is on level 8 of the Manchester Unity Building, right in the heart of the Melbourne CBD where you are welcome to get ready before your event.
In addition to this we also offer mobile services, travelling all over Melbourne and beyond.
If you feel drawn to working together, do reach out and we can start dreaming up your next killer look.
With love, gratitude and so much fucking enthusiasm.
