Exquisite Hair & Make up


A Little About Karen...

My love affair with hair and makeup began at a very young age and was inspired by my Grandmother. As a little girl, and a girly one at that, nothing made me happier than to receive the  “gift with purchase” my Grandmother especially collected for me.  I was exposed to women who really enjoyed being women, an infectious mantra that I can’t help but live by.

Setting our hair with Marcelle wave clips was a nightly ritual, I considered myself extremely lucky to have my own personal stylist, and it didn’t stop with hair!

On my very first day of school I was the proud wearer of Elizabeth Arden covering cream, immaculately applied by my Grandmother.  I sometimes wonder if my grade one class mates noticed my complexion perfection… from finger waves to flawless skin, I will never forget the feeling of being pampered, it’s no wonder I have spent a lifetime dedicated to spoiling women with the same deluxe treatment.

The idea to create a bridal hair and makeup studio, The Powder Room, was born from a vision while working and operating a high-end beauty studio in Chelsea, London. I came back to Brisbane, Queensland with my husband and business partner Paul, and together we began The Powder Room studio. He has created the stunning images of The Powder Room’s gorgeous bridal styles for more than 10 years. The realisation that Brisbane was coming-of-age as a stylish, fashion savvy city assisted in our decision to collate a team of professional hair and make up artists. I am so proud of the talent and passion of our team who continue to spread the love.



About the Team…

Hello beautiful Brides J so you’d like to know a little about us…where do I start?  We love all things pretty and are total makeup junkies, oh and as hairdressers we have to be careful that we don’t walk up to random strangers and start touching their hair! Did I mention that we love our job….and not just because we get to wear bling every day.

As a team we are all about the “Wow” factor, what wow’s us and what wow’s you. Now, girls love to talk, and we are no different, we can’t wait to find out more about how you met your special man, how he proposed, what your ring looks like….and of course all the details about your dress and shoes.

Our friendly hair and make up artists are highly-trained industry professionals selected for their passion and talent. Our Bridal team, regularly train to keep their skills up to date and educate other professionals. We are always inspired by the latest beauty products, techniques and looks..
