"I've been seeing Julie for approx 5 years for my waxing needs and only recently to have my nails done. As a lifetime nail biter, who always hid my hands away, I am now absolutely loving how beautiful my nails look and make sure everyone sees them. It is amazing how my self confidence has improved with something as simple as having my nails done. Julie uses only the best products available and her knowledge and skill level are top quality as well. I love my regular 'catch ups' with Julie. She is always polite, friendly & fun. Thank you so much for my 'elegant hands'."
"Julie at Hands of Elegance is amazing. I started as a client a few years ago when Julie was based in North Melbourne - now, despite us now both being in different locations, I happily travel the extra distance to continue my services with her. If you are looking for someone with exceptional customer service, a down-to-earth attitude, and genuine high quality results, Julie is your girl!"
"I have been going to Hands of Elegance for nails, waxing, pedicures, facials and beauty other treatments for about 10 years and the service has always been excellent, the best I have had anywhere. Julie is fantastic and makes every visit an enjoyable experience. She has also introduced me to some wonderful products that I could now not live without."
"Julie shows good attention to detail and takes great pride in her work. Always a fun and relaxing experience. Location is convenient with plenty of street parking."
"I have now been going to Hands of Elegance for 12 years - must be nearing 150 visits at Julie's three different locations. McIlwraith Street is the best - ample parking, great salon and the usual fantastic service. It is a one stop shop for nails, waxing, eyebrows, manicures and pedicures and facials. The best bit is that Julie is a sole practitioner so you always know she will be doing your treatments. She is professional, thorough and very skilled. You leave feeling spoiled. Having been talked into trying acrylic nails I have never looked back. They are elegant, natural looking and ensure my hands always look well cared for and manicured. I wish you well Julie in your new location."
"I've been trying to source the Magic Wax Board for so me time - a great nail treatment product that I've found very effective when I've used it before. Thankfully, Hands of Elegance stock it, and Julie responded to my email enquiry very quickly. I live in SA, but Julie was so helpful in helping me place an order, and now it's on its way in the post. I'm thrilled!"
"Exceptional quality and service. Julie at Hands of Elegance knows her stuff and only uses the best quality products. Her nail services particularly are excellent and I know when I started going there I had peace of mind that if I had any issues with my new nails in the first week I could go back free of charge. Never have I had an experience of being rushed, bleeding cuticles or being treated badly. She is warm and welcoming and very knowledgable on her products. Highly recommend."
"I visit my Sydney acrylic nail technician every fortnight and have done so for 18 years, so when I needed to be in Melbourne for 6 weeks I had to find someone as good. I have a very strict criteria - must use Creative Product and must hand file - no electric files for me. I put my criteria into Google and a few names came up but the numbers either didn't answer or had terrible voicemails. I finally came across Julie and after a brief conversation decided to book 3 appointments, despite the fact her salon was 30 minutes away from where I was staying. Worth every kilometre and every minute of the travel. Julie is truly professional and crafts her art well. Her studio is spotless and a beautiful space in which to be pampered. I also booked myself for a pedicure and if time had allowed I would surely have booked a facial, perhaps even a massage. I thoroughly enjoyed Julie's warmth and the many conversations we shared over the 6 weeks I was in Melbourne. I will definitely use Julie's services again when in Melbourne and highly recommend her to you."
"Julie at Hands of Elegance is a gem. Her service is excellent, her products are high quality and she knows her stuff. I highly recommend this salon. My artificial nails are natural looking and beautiful. I hate that chunky nail look I've received in other salons with milky acrylic that is not at all natural looking. One salon even tortured my cuticles and made them bleed. Julie's service is second to none and I'll definitely return."
"I have been seeing Julie for a number of years - I walk in need of work and walk out looking beautiful! Got to love that! I love her professionalism and her ability to make you feel comfortable and really special. Love ya xoxo"
"Manicures, pedicures, waxing, facials - this is the place to go. Adjacent to a house, it doesn't have the clinical feel that some salons have, and Julie (owner) is lovely, with a wicked sense of humour! 😊
"She's highly trained and very experienced, so you can trust her with acrylic or gel nails, shellac, and all the rest of which I'll spare you the details! It's not the cheapest, but you do get the quality and attention that you pay a bit extra for. I've been going to this salon for over 10 years, and wouldn't go anywhere else."
"I've been going to Hands of Elegance for close to ten years, always receiving excellent treatments and care in waxing, nails, facials, whatever you need. Julie provides trusted quality service and keeps up to date on developments in the beauty industry. Going there is a treat for the body and the mind, with laughs a plenty too."
"Great range of services - a one stop shop. Julie provides professional, skilful & personal treatments from head to toe all reasonably priced"
