The Salon by Kerri Gravina

New home for hair and make-up creations in the city

Discover the intimate and relaxing atmosphere of Kerri Gravina Salon!

A new creative space has launched in one of Melbourne’s oldest landmarks. The iconic Manchester Unity building on Collins Street, renown as the city’s first skyscraper, now home to the latest creative venture of leading Melbourne hair stylist Kerri Gravina.

Kerri Gravina is sought after for her signature hair styling for fashion shoots, weddings, special events and private clientele. She now brings together her collaboration with top Melbourne make-up artists and photographers into a private salon.

“I have enjoyed collaborations with some of Melbourne’s best make-up artists and photographers, but what we needed was a creative space where we could all work together and apply our craft in a more integrated and seamless way,” said Kerri

“The space in the Manchester Unity building is ideal – it is easily accessible for our clients being in the heart of the city, yet it is locked away in a world that feels like stepping into another era where things were slower, more deliberate, more personal and more handcrafted. It’s a place to pause, to think and to be deeply immersed in what you are doing.”

“The setting is important and influences our work – it’s a special place, full of history, art-deco charm and imbues our work with a strong sense of place. Our work just looks very Melbourne.”

The Salon combines an intimate hair and make-up studio with a fully equipped photographic set.

“We are experimenting with how we use the space. We are a hair salon that works well for personal consultation, fashion and bridal shoots, corporate headshots, and photographic portfolios. It can also be used by groups, as a gallery space, for events and can be booked by other creative professionals wanting to use the space,” said Kerri

”Our salon is ideal for small groups of friends wanting to come in together and experience our luxury packages after a big day in the office or one of our exciting new hens night private parties”

Stay tuned for details in coming weeks of the opening exhibition and portfolio of works by Kerri Gravina in collaboration with make up artist Eve O’Shea and photographer Shardey Olynyk and Dimitri Zaik.
