A massage in Marrakech, a blow-dry in Paris and a haircut in New York? You don’t have to be a celebrity to be primped and preened by the world’s best, writes Faith Campbell.
On the Instagram feeds of Lara Worthington, Nicole Trunfio and Jessica Gomes, a less familiar yet equally luminous face pops up: that of Sydney-based skin specialist Melanie Grant. As if the It Girls won’t convince you of Grant’s dermal gifts, her own flawless complexion will. Never trust a skinny cook, right? An initial consultation with Australia’s first official Chanel skincare expert costs $150 but treatments can hit the $750 mark.
With her clients describing her as “my saviour” (Catherine McNeil) and “the only person I let touch my face” (Nicole Warne), it’s enough to make a facialist blush – but no doubt Grant has a treatment for that, too.
