A Little About Karen

Karen The Powder Room

My love affair with hair and makeup began at a very young age and was inspired by my Grandmother. As a little girl, and a girly one at that, nothing made me happier than to receive the “gift with purchase” my Grandmother especially collected for me. I was exposed to women who really enjoyed being women, an infectious mantra that I can’t help but live by.

Setting our hair with fingerwave clips and pincurls was a nightly ritual when I stayed with my Grandmother. I considered myself extremely lucky to have my own personal stylist, and it didn’t stop with hair! I will never forget the feeling of being pampered, it’s no wonder I have spent a lifetime dedicated to making women feel special and more beautiful.

The idea to create a bridal hair and makeup studio, The Powder Room, was born from a vision while working and operating a high-end beauty and photographic studio in Chelsea, London. I came back to Brisbane with my husband and business partner Paul, and together we began The Powder Room studios. We created the stunning images of The Powder Room’s timeless bridal styles for more than 15 years along with fashion and advertising work.

The realisation that Brisbane was coming-of-age as a fashionable and stylish city sealed the decision to enlist a collective of professional hair and makeup artists. I am so proud of the talent and passion of our team who continue to spread the love and care that The Powder Room is well known for.
