Our Boutique Bridal Studio

Maybe you have a smaller Bridal party or you just want to escape to a tranquil space to be pampered.

We would love to spoil you in our gorgeous bridal boutique studio in New Farm, just 5 minutes from the city heart

Jewels & chandeliers adorn the salon, the cupcakes are fluffy and the champagne is bubbly – it’s a brides paradise! Here in Brisbane..

Gorgeous Wedding Hair

The Powder Room experience doesn’t stop with stunning makeup.  Did you think we would send you down the aisle with wet hair? Never! We take great pleasure in fussing over every detail, right down to the last fly away on your head - we don’t miss a thing!

You have chosen your dream dress and now it's time to decide on your wedding hairstyle.
At The Powder Room, your bridal hairstyles are both elegant and timeless. Drawing on experience, gained in award-winning salons, catwalk, fashion and photographic, as well as high-end beauty and advertising work. Whether your hair style inspiration is vintage, modern, beach inspired, half up styles, long hair styles, sleek or bouffant, The Powder Room stylists can create your perfect wedding look.
Chances are you won’t see a vintage-esque woman with her hair immaculately finger waved on the train on your way to work, but keep your eyes open just in case. Perhaps the pages of Vogue or your favourite bridal magazine are more likely to contain visions of enchanting vintage waves or Hollywood glamour style curls. We love nothing more than to be inspired by your visions, so start scrapbooking.


Help!! I don’t think I have enough hair to create my dream look…

Celebrities seem to be forever changing the length and volume of their hair – how do they do it? Do they use magic hair products that promote hair growth overnight? Believe me, we would know if such products existed…but until then, let us open your eyes to the world of hair pieces and hair paddings. Do you need length? volume? Maybe a little (or a lot) of both? ….No problem! Our hair stylists are experts in making sneaky, instant adjustments to the length and body of your hair.  Almost as if they wave their magic wand and voila! We don’t call them hair fairies for nothing!

Boutique Hairdressing Salon

Boutique Hair SalonWe know you will love your Powder Room experience so much that you will want to keep coming back for some girlie pampering before and after the wedding day. Our boutique hair salon is a fabulous way to do exactly that. New farm has some amazing hairdressers in this area and we feel blessed to be in this great village atmosphere.

Karen, owner and creative director of The Powder Room has been hairdressing for 24 years. Karen loves to take the time to get to know you and really understanding the look you would like to achieve, working with your lifestyle in mind. Many of Karen’s clients are previous brides who not only return for regular salon services, but also for special occasion celebrations like anniversaries, parties and balls.

Specializing in bridal hair and makeup, it seems natural that our Brides would want to come in and have their Pre Wedding day colors & haircuts done before their big day.

The Powder Room experience is one, which we are proud of, and we like to look after our friends. First of all we will remember who you are as we really are interested in you, your life and of course your hair…and we love to chat so we won’t be the sort of hairdressers that don’t say anything to you while we are coloring your hair, unless of course you would just like to sit and relax quietly…

Did I tell you about our head massages…OMG they are amazing…I don’t know about you but I find that is one of the most important parts of my haircut, and I like the whole head to be massaged….now…when you sit in your chair we have an extensive list of refreshments, including T2 herbal teas, iced tea, and organic coffee.

Oh and did we mention that we are above street level and there are only ever a few clients in having their hair done at the one time so you really are pampered like a princess.

Opening Hours


Beautiful Wedding Makeup

We consider ourselves to be makeup magicians and we even have our own range of signature Powder Room products (with ultra romantic names including “I Do”, “Aisle Be Yours” and “Fairytale”) but we do call upon a little help from some of our dearest friends, Laura Mercier, Stila, Nars, Mac, Estee Lauder, Yves Saint Lauren, Lancome, Benefit, Napoleon and ID Minerals.  Okay, enough with the name dropping!

Should I have lash extensions?

Lashes, lashes, lashes… no longer reserved for Broadway Babes and Centre Stage Sweethearts, we think you are truly deserving of the deluxe treatment too.  The beauty of lashes is that they are artfully applied by our premier makeup artists in a range of ways from oh so subtle to dramatically daring.

What is one of The Powder Room’s best kept secrets?

We live in a world that demands results… now… do you want instant gratification? We can deliver.   Let me introduce Airstocking.  Varicose veins, tan lines, redness on the décolletage, pigmentation - now we see you, now we don’t! The ultra fine pigment that is Airstocking is sneakily effective, no one will even know you’re wearing it, unless of course you wish to share the gospel with your bridal party, we think they might like it too!

What is Airbrush Foundation?

Airbrush foundation is a water-based, oil-free and long wearing makeup that is applied through an airbrush, using a small air compressor. It is usually used for high definition film.

As it is applied, it feels like a mist hitting your face and dries into a smooth, flawless finish that feels very light on the skin. It is long wearing, non-transferable, and ideal for high heat, humidity, weddings and dancing all night!

Airbrush foundation is especially good for people with oilier skin, or blemished skin as it tends to stay put longer.

What is the difference between Airbrush and Traditional Foundation? With a combination of the techniques used by our makeup artist, long wearing foundations, primers, and setting sprays - the same long wearing effect can be achieved with traditional makeup. If you prefer a very "dewy" look, traditional makeup may be the way to go. Airbrush foundation is a slightly more matte look.

As with any makeup medium, The Powder Room can control the coverage from sheer to full coverage with both airbrush or traditional foundations.

Ultimately, it is what you feel most comfortable with and the type of finish you would like.
