moved to Melbourne 5 years ago, where it was her vision to capitalise on Melbourne’s huge social & event scene. An atelier offering all hair, makeup, spray tanning & even more services- to be open 7 days a week. When the perfect space became available on High Street Armadale (melbournes sought after strip & bridal hub) the brainchild of Melbourne’s biggest beauty atelier was born. It took nearly a year to find the perfect team. Grace knew the services needed to complete her vision but also had to find the best person in each profession for it to be successful. Grace contacted some industry leaders directly whilst others came highly recommended. Now 1 year on at 1256 High Street Gem- hair makeup & tanning has 6 hairdressers working alongside a cosmetic doctor, (@drbecky_ ) a dermal clinician (@thebrowlab_au ) a body contourist (@reformbodysculpting ) and hair electrologist.
With the corona virus only hair services are running at the moment but everybody is excited to have all hands on deck as soon as the government gives us the nod. Watch out for new products, services and incredible specials upon reopening.

The year that was. Thank you for all of our wonderful clients who have supported us in 2019. We couldn’t be here without you!
The patience with the big move in April and all the little things that needed tweaking- to the understanding of the Graces last minute flight to Perth, (Christmas week) and the appreciation of her efforts made to be back in time for you all to be beautiful for Christmas. This year the team doubled with the expansion when all the incredible professionals working upstairs came to offer the best in additional services, whilst downstairs the hair stylists continued to love even more with the amazing products by natulique, bhave and everescents.
Mica got engaged, Dr Becky delivered a beautiful baby boy and Deborah announced her pregnancy due April next year. 2020 is going to be our best year yet and we are very excited for you to be a part of it!
