Gem: a precious or semi-precious stone which has been cut and polished to perfection. This is the philosophy behind Melbourne Hair, Make up and styling professional Grace Erin Mayvis. If you are looking for perfection spoil yourself with Gem’s professional and qualified services. With over 10 years’ experience, Gem prides themselves on using only ultra-premium products that are botanical and safe. Arbonne cosmetics create a long lasting, flawless finish that complements the natural glow from the Aviva spray tan.
Mission: To ensure your special day truly is a gem, leave the pampering to us and let the best in Melbourne polish you to perfection.
For the team at 1256 high street our lives have been in disarray since March 23rd. For the past 63 days we have all been working tirelessly in the salon- (if permitted) or at home on our online stores and behind the scenes, doing our best to stay afloat financially.
The challenges and hurdles our team have been met with are not only financial but emotional and mental too. In this time we have been bettering ourselves and upskilling for our clients and our businesses who we love very much. With The last of the beauty restrictions to be lifted on June 1 we can finally see the light at the end of this tunnel. We thank you all for your continued support through this time and we hope that you can see our new zest for life.
We are so excited to be back and see an incredible end of 2020 albeit with extended health and safety measures. Please note not all staff will be back immediately but we can guarantee normal trading hours and ALL staff will be back my mid June. Looking forward to seeing everybody.

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.

Has all department stores cancelling their makeup services until further notice. If your makeup appointment has been/will be cancelled be in touch with us. Being a boutique salon we have smaller amount of guests coming through the door. Our high standards in hygiene has been and always will be paramount, as we continue to offer all of our services.

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!
