The Distinctive Dame | Hair and Makeup Artist in Melbourne | Bridal Wedding Vintage

Think of us as your beauty besties

We’re here to help you feel like your fiercest, baddest, boldest self. 

This isn’t about taking a cookie cutter approach to beauty and style, but working together to make sure that when you look at yourself in the mirror that you won’t want to look away! 

We like skin to look like skin and brows to look like brows. We’re not concerned with trends or replicating insta makeup.
This is a tailored experience designed to highlight the beauty that already exists within.

“We are endlessly grateful for the gift of your skills and your ability to unearth the hidden beauty within us all
 Kate & Gaby

If you feel drawn to working together, do reach out so we can start dreaming up your next killer look.
With love, gratitude and so much fucking enthusiasm! 


This is proudly an LGBTQIA+ inclusive business


Aesthetically, we consider ourselves vintage hair & makeup specialists.

Retro and vintage looks are what make us foam at the mouth, however, we are T-shaped artists and can do it all. No era is off limits and we won’t be bamboozled by requests for no makeup makeup, effortless beachy waves, textured up-dos or era-fusions. Whatever the brief, we’ve got you covered!


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, reach out and we can start dreaming up your next killer look.
