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

Hello and welcome.

This is a business that has been created and nurtured over the years as a platform to combine our core values :
  • Community
  • Kindness
  • Connection
  • Creativity

Perhaps you’ve got a wedding coming up or another special event. Let’s work together to tease out the vision you have for yourself so that you can sashay into your event feeling like your most confident and badass self. 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.
Margeaux & team

Whatever your reason for visiting, you’ll always feel safe and welcome here.
This is proudly an LGBTQIA+ inclusive business
