Hi, I’m Janine and have been in the Beauty Industry for the past 30 years.
My beginnings were quite humble: Immigrating from South Africa, then London, I found myself in Australia – a young, single mum bringing up two children on my own. I was on a very tight budget, but I would not give up. I decided I needed to do something to improve my children’s lives and myself, and that’s when I decided to open my first salon. I had nothing to lose but everything to gain.
In 2002 we moved to Australia and in 2006 I founded BodiBeauticious in Rose Bay. With our superior professionality and laid back atmosphere, it became one of the top beauty salons in the area, a meeting point for people, a place where everyone could call “home”.
I decided to take my services to Byron Bay and opened a second location in 2016, which offers the same superior and consistent standard of beauty as our Rose Bay Salon. Our services include skin treatments such as anti-aging and anti-acne procedures, tanning, hair removal, massages, nails, makeup and eyelash extensions.
Our mission is to make people feel beautiful on the inside as well as the outside. We want women to feel empowered when they visit our salons.
Our job is community based – everyone is welcome, every person is of value to us and I can promise that we will do our best to create the best vision of yourself possible.
We welcome you with a full range of our top quality services, professional staff and a warm and inviting atmosphere. Specialising in hair removal allows us to perfect our technique to offer you a superior wax and IPL treatment at very reasonable prices. We use only the best spray tanning products and equipment and are responsible for some of the most gorgeous tans in town!
See you soon x
