Salon Owner, Beauty Therapist.

Victoria

Victoria who was born in Perth WA, has 22 years experience in the industry. She left high school then headed off to beauty college when she was only 16 years old. She spent 6 years working in top beauty salons, day spas and makeup events in Perth, before entering the other side of the industry and starting her career in the sales & training field. After beginning her first repping position at the age of 23, a long weekend work trip to Melbourne saw her soon packing her bags from little old Perth and moving to the big smoke of Melbourne, which she has now called home for over 14 years. Over the next 9 years she worked for some of Australia’s largest cosmetic companies such as Ultraceuticals & Napoleon Perdis, and even sold Solariums at one point! (who remembers those days?!) As well as gaining her certificate in Training & Assessment, Victoria has taught makeup at Beauty Colleges & Makeup Schools in WA & VIC, and her love for brows stemmed largely from teaching the art of makeup application. After retiring from 9 years on the road Victoria did a small stint working in a salon. Realising how much she missed it, she decided that it was time to go out on her own! In 2015, Victoria Jade was born. Flash forward almost 7 years, (after starting in that tiny little room upstairs by herself), to the expansion in 2021 taking over the building of 150 Greville Street, growing her team from 1 to 8-10 at times, having her daughter Harlow and overcoming covid and everything that went with that, Victoria wishes to keep building Victoria Jade and be able to add training for Industry Professionals by the end of 2022. In her spare time (when she has some) Vic loves to spend time with her partner Joel, daughter Harlow & step-daughter Bonnie, drinking Rosé with her besties or getting away somewhere tropical and sunny.

Melinda

Mel as you all know her, has been with Victoria since 2016, and is the O-G staff member at Victoria Jade! Mel started her career in the beauty industry as a make-up artist and has worked for numerous cosmetic brands, whilst growing her own bridal makeup business on the side. Her passion for brows grew from always wanting to correct people brows whilst in her chair, so she then decided to pursue this passion and did a brow sculpting course. After training and working with some professionals, she landed at VJ and we haven’t let her go since ;) Soon after Mel added Cosmetic Tattooing to her repertoire, and knows how to Feather Tattoo a brow. She loves to travel, it's where she met her husband Kruno, who is from Croatia. She's a Virgo perfectionist (if you’re Mel’s client you’ll know what we mean!), food lover and became a Mumma for the first time in 2020 to her son Vincent.

Courtney

Courtney started with us in October 2020 after being one of our clients for many years. She started as one of our salon co-ordinators whilst running her own business Tallulah and Zane. If running her own business wasn’t enough, she has now jumped on board as our in-house Marketing & Operations Manager. She has an eye for detail and all things creative and you’ll get to know her as the face all over our socials, or when she is trying to snap some insta worthy content during your treatment. When Courtney isn’t working, you’ll find her either at pilates or out with friends in a killer outfit, with a spicy marg in hand!

(You may recognise her from downstairs during in the Lou Salon days). Although trained by the Victoria Jade team, she is an absolute natural and our go-to Lamination Queen. Lisa loves Thai food, bingeing trashy tv shows and has a love/hate relationship with her Schitzu, Teddy.
