Royal Talk

The Queen’s Birthday weekend is the perfect time to leave the corgis at home and head to the Royal Arcade. Celebrate the regal array of beautiful shops and be pampered like the queen you are at your favourite beauty and grooming salons. Why not feast like a king at any one of the fine cafes or be treated like a princess with the latest fashions. The choices are seemingly endless.

A day of pampering starts at Paint‘ N Powder, a specialist French perfumery, accessories and beauty salon. Step into a world of beauty and be delighted at the exquisite mix of old world charm with crystal evening bags, designer sunglasses and tantalising French silk scarves right next to the latest perfumes, beauty products, and beauty treatments from around the world. Upstairs the pampering takes on a whole new level in a deluxe Guerlain beauty Salon. Ooh la la.

A right royal treat this Queen’s Birthday weekend is popping into Confidente Hair Salon. One of Melbourne’s leading hair salons, you’ll be well looked after by their experienced senior hair specialists. Whether you’re after a quick blow dry, just a trim, or something more adventurous, Confidente Hair Salon offers the most professional service and care to ensure you walk out of this amazing boutique salon feeling fabulous.

For beautiful nails fit for a royal wave, one couldn’t be in better hands than the Royal Arcades’ wonderful Q&H Nails. One of Melbourne’s best nail bars, Q&H Nails were the first salon to introduce organic gel, meaning you can enjoy a nail treatment that’s chemical and UV free.

There couldn’t be a more perfect place to spend a few moments on Queen’s Birthday than devouring a few delicious treats at The Little Royal. Specialising in luxury desserts, The Little Royal was created by the team behind Café E Torta, and specialise in everything macaron from individual macarons (petit fours) to macaron cakes and towers. Just as tempting are the petits choux pastries and towers. If you’ve got a sweet tooth on the Queen’s Birthday, this is the place to be.
