A beauty cafe in Melbourne’s east has become the envy of locals for its relaxed atmosphere and friendly service.
The owner of Simply Beautiful Salon, where the owner of the Lotus Beauty Salon was born, is also a celebrity in the area.
It’s all thanks to the business owner’s love for cosmetics.
“I grew up in a time where beauty was just something that was done in a room.
It was not something that went out to the public,” she said.”
Now it’s a social experience.
There’s people there that know me, they know what I do, they’re friends with my customers.”
The cafe was born after a friend, who was a beauty salon owner, wanted to open a cafe and was impressed with how the community and the people were welcoming.
“It was really an amazing community, and a beautiful community, the people who were there are really lovely,” Ms Ritchie said.
The cafe has been running for four years and has now expanded to include an organic garden and a coffee shop.
“We’ve also been able to create a community in the city of Carlton,” Ms Wetherby said.
It has also become a popular destination for families to come and relax.
“Our community is really happy with the place, it’s got a really cool atmosphere and it’s the only cafe that I can think of that’s really friendly and welcoming,” Ms Jagger said.
