Head Beautician

My name is Maria and with over 15 years of experience practicing as a beautician, I’m here now in lovely Bardon, Brisbane to serve personal beauty salon and spa services to the people of sunny Queensland, Australia. Whether it’s a treat for your aching muscles, a skin rejuvenating facial or simply a fresh brow, I do my part to make you feel your best and that’s what my beauty services are all about.

My career as a beautician began at the Australian Institute of Applied Sciences in 2001 with training in a variety of services including make-up, skincare, hair removal, massage, and nail technology. But I wasn’t done with my training just yet!  Since then I have completed courses such as the Intense Pulsed Light treatments course from CSHE Australia by director Metro-Dora Clifford that allow us to deliver the fastest IPL services in Brisbane.

Beauty has long been my passion and with the of knowledge I’ve accumulated about the industry, I strive to ensure that the services I deliver go above and beyond expectations. With that being said, I never forget that this industry is here to serve, and I ensure my clients receive stellar treatment and are attended to with a warm welcome and competent, reliable hands.

If you’re looking for the perfect aesthetic renewal through salon and spa services in Bardon, Brisbane, make a booking and come on down to Relax and Refresh Beauty.

Fun fact: My favourite beauty product is the EGF-DNA Recovery Serum. It’s the perfect magical pick me up in a bottle that gives me an instant boost whenever I use it. The EGF-DNA Recovery Cream is great too!

Maria was really good. She was available straight away even I was early with my appointment. She was very gentle and I’m happy with the result of my eyebrow and eyelash tinted. I’m coming back for the feathering tattoo of my eyebrow.
