Favourite quote:

The person who thinks he can and the person who thinks they can’t are both correct.

Favourite musician/band:

I’m a Lana girl 4 ever! I also love SYML, and lately I am obsessed with Hermanos Gutiérrez (Latin American vibesssss).

What I love about beauty:

I love how beauty can be found anywhere, it’s something that is unique to everyone and that’s what makes it beautiful. There is nothing conventional about true beauty - it’s in the differences, the contrasts. I love being able to help people see and discover the beauty in themselves and the world around them.

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. -Nelson Mandela

Post Malone right now

What I love about beauty: 

I love being able to make a difference for people - clients coming in not feeling great about something and me being able to do something about it. Having them leave the salon obviously happy with what I've done and feeling more confident because of a small thing I could change/enhance for them makes me genuinely happy inside.

Favourite snack:

Frozen raspberries lol or sweet and salty popcorn

Favourite musician/band:

Guy Sebastian & NF (I know they’re very different artists and genres)

What I love about beauty:

At the moment cadbury mint triple decker chocolate and I always have a few extra stashed away for when/if they stop making it

You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches - Dita Von Teese

Favourite musician/band:

Hozier, Gang of Youths, Florence and the Machine

What I love about beauty:

I love getting to create connections with clients. sometimes that’s as simple as discovering we love the same author and swapping book recommendations and sometimes its sharing the best life advice that leaves me with a new perspective of the world.

JESSICA PERIS

OUR FOUNDER

From the humble beginnings of her parent's garage, Jessica Peris started The Beautique at the age of 21, adorning the nails of dedicated customers with tiny hand-painted artwork. For the large part of her career, Jess became one of the most in-demand local bridal makeup artists - sharing the journeys of hundreds of brides and grooms, helping them feel like the most beautiful version of themselves on their wedding day. 

 

Fast forward 12 years, and The Beautique has grown from the garage, to home salon, to the enchanting space it is now, located in Franklin, ACT.

No matter how The Beautique has transformed, Jess has always carried the same ethos; that all clients are welcomed as if they are a guest in her own home, that they feel seen, heard, and taken care of. While helping people find happiness is the true driving force behind her business; this force only grows stronger with time and is not only shown to her clients, but to her highly valued team.

 

"Self-care isn't just a buzz word. I believe self-care comes in many forms, and is the highest act of self-love. Whether you are taking time to listen to your body and rest, prioritizing your mental health, getting your nails done just to feel nice - you are choosing to do something to empower yourself. Treating your body as if it is something you value and something you are proud of, goes much deeper than most of us even realise. My hope is that everyone who walks through our door enjoys their whole experience from start to finish, feels amazing, has some laughs or even a cry - as long as they feel better than when they walked in. That's when our mission is accomplished." - Jess
