The “celebrity-approved” facial
With a clientele including Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian – and a recently-opened salon in Los Angeles – Mel Grant has earned fans for her “signature glow”. Stylist and blogger Nicole Warne (Gary Pepper Girl) describes Grant as the “only person I let touch my face”.
Grant opened her first salon in Sydney’s Double Bay in 2012, followed by a Melbourne outpost in Armadale in 2016.
There are many bespoke, corrective treatments to consider here, but the most popular is the cult Camera Ready Facial, which involves a deep cleanse and ultra-fine diamond microdermabrasion, followed by a custom antioxidant peel, hydration infusion and massage using French techniques. Treatment rooms are minimal and mostly white, accented with fresh flowers and soft blankets on the beds.
