Bonjour to beauty
A new beauty salon is in Maleny, with Emmanuelle (Emma) Bartlett ready to welcome you. So where does Emma hail from and why did she choose Maleny for her new business?
“I’m from New-Caledonia,” Emma shared with HT, “a beautiful French Pacific island only two hours flight from Brisbane. I always dreamed of Australia and I had the chance to do a lot of travel around here when I was young with my family, so I was thrilled when I arrived here 14 years ago to pursue my studies in Business and Beauty.
Emma studied a Bachelor of Business degree, “Then I obtained a French Diploma of Beauty, combined with recognition of English in the Diploma.”
Working as a beauty therapist for over ten years in Brisbane, Emma learnt a lot about the effect of the Queensland climate on skin.
“At the salon I use and recommend Sothys Paris skin care and make-up, which has been a prestige French cosmetics brand for more than 70 years. They consistently provide new answers in the ever-changing world of modern beauty, which is why I love their products.”
Emma takes great joy in looking after her clients. “I absolutely love taking care of people in my salon,” she smiled, “with facials, waxing, eyelash extensions and make up. I use OPI for my manicures and pedicures.”
So why did Emma choose Maleny?
“I have always wanted to open a beauty salon on the Sunshine Coast and am delighted to have moved to Maleny in March. When I first arrived, I met a few locals who were so welcoming with big smiles and that was really warming, even just to speak a little bit of French with me.
“I also want my two beautiful daughters to grow up in a place with kind community spirit, surrounded by natural beauty.”
You can find Emmanuelle’s Beauty at 3/66 Maple Street, Maleny, open Monday-Friday from 8.30am, phone: 0410670519. Emma can also do evening and Saturday appointments if necessary.
“I’m really looking forward to welcoming new clients and to fully integrate into this delightful village.”
