Lately I’ve had a spike in the number of people who ask me about appropriate…
What began as a tiny “garage studio” in 2011 has blossomed into one of the northside’s coolest beauty spots for those in the know.
If you’re looking for beauty nirvana, just track down the glass square on Franklin’s Flemington Road. A curious site from the outside, step through the door to find yourself surrounded by lush scents, pastels and pinafored staff.
Led by its effervescent founder Jess Peris, The Beautique is one of the northside’s coolest beauty hotspots. Specialising in nail art on natural nails, The Beautique provides an array of beauty treatments including hair removal, tanning, lash lifting, skin services and makeup.
Alongside their treatment offerings, The Beautique also stocks a curated selection of retail ranging from hand-crafted chocolates to candles, art prints and beauty products, as well as hosting regular workshops by local creatives, which they hope to resume as soon as restrictions allow.
Now freshly reopened thanks to eased restrictions, The Beautique is excited to launch their 2020 Winter Nail Art Menu. Every season, The Beautique team dream up 15 new designs based on seasonal trends and inspiration gathered from around the world.
“For this menu, I really wanted to keep it uplifting and take us away from a typical cold, dark winter,” explains founder Jess Peris.
“I feel like we are all needing some happy vibes, so I incorporated a lot of pastels, glitter and confetti. If this menu had a theme it would be ‘dreaming of parties during quarantine’.”
As for those worried about accessing beauty services during COVID, Jess assures us that her team has sanitation on lock.
“We are approaching our services with the glitter scenario—you touch glitter and then boom, it’s everywhere,” says Jess. “Above our usual impeccable hygiene standards, we’ve introduced elevated measures and strict conditions to ensure that we’re doing absolutely everything we can to keep you, our team, and our community safe. The power is literally in our hands!”
