Keeping it real in our City

The Nail & Beauty Room

Ladies, it’s no secret that we love a little bitta’ me time at the beauty salon, right? Whether it’s getting your nails done with that funky nail art you saw on Insta and have been crushing on ever since, making those lashes look bigger than Ben Hur with an eyelash extension, or turning your legs a nice sun-kissed golden brown (when they’ve been hibernating all winter) with a spray tan. No matter what we choose to have done – we love it, and we leave feeling like we could take on the whole damn world.

However, when we choose where to go to get these beauty treatments done, we want to know that we’ll be in good hands – literally, and that’s where The Nail & Beauty Room comes in.


When you arrive at Suzie’s beautiful home in Mt Lawley you’re immediately greeted with a smile. She takes you through to her private studio and suddenly you’re in the cosiest and cutest little space imaginable. With music playing and the heater on if it’s chilly outside, it’s almost like you never left home. When you finish eyeing off Suzie’s extensive nail polish collection and fancy makeup stash, your eyes are instantly drawn to the pink fluffy blanket and colour coordinated cushions that graze the bed. If that doesn’t say “welcome”, then I don’t know what does.


Suzie has been in the beauty industry for 18 years. Having always worked at home, she knows how to create a space that makes anyone feel comfortable. Suzie is a wealth of knowledge, and thanks to her I know now that dentists invented the acrylic used for fake nails – after all, every day’s a school day!

There’s absolutely no counterfeit products used at The Nail & Beauty Room. In fact, there’s nothing but the best! Suzie has never used anything on her clients that she wouldn’t use on herself. When it comes to nails, Suzie’s main concern is the health of the natural nail, which is why she uses only the highest quality brands, such as CND, Shellac, Inventor, OPI and Gelish. For all those wanting a lil’ extra glitz and glam, Suzie’s got you covered – with any type of nail art you’re after available, including Swarovski studs (see… I told you she uses nothing but the best).


From nails to eyelash extensions, anything eyebrows, spray tans, facial waxing and makeup – you can’t go past Suzie and The Nail & Beauty Room. Suzie works daytime hours every day except Sunday and Tuesday and is located only a 10 minute drive from the Perth CBD.

Now, for the photo you’ve all been waiting for! Pieta’s lovely “before and after” shot.
Personally, I think Suzie nailed it.

If you also think Suzie nailed and would like more information or to book an appointment, head to, or to check out Suzie’s amazing work, you can visit her Facebook or Instagram @thenailandbeautyroomperth.

Lauren Higham

I’m Lauren, and I’ve lived in Perth for the whole 24 years of my life!

By day, I’m the Social Media Coordinator at the wonderful City of Stirling and by night, you’ll find me craving Maccas chips, Denada ice cream or Banjo carob bears and watching crappy reality shows on TV. My favourite Friday night consists of watching footy on the couch with some snacks, and on the weekends, I thoroughly enjoy things such as sleeping in, heading down to the beach and yoga. I'm a bit of a neat freak who loves things being organised, and I’m a big fan of living as green and as naturally as possible.

I love getting out and about in this great city we call home; Hawkers Markets, Farmers Markets, Hopman Cup, a Wildcats game, the BBL, movies, a music event, restaurants, cafés – you name it, the list goes on. Perth is seriously getting so cool, and I love seeing it grow!
