People of Mien
With a centre part and two big fat plaits, Maria walked into Mien and expressed
her interest in becoming a hairdresser. Fifteen at the time and only a few years
adopted into the Australian way of life she loved watching her mum have her
hair done. She says she knew she wanted to be a stylist!
Maria says as Clifton Hill locals, Maria and her family were attracted to the
beautiful Mien building. Since then, it's safe to say that Maria has become a part
of our family.
Maria was one of the hardest working apprentices Mien has ever known.
And now one of the most popular stylists.
She's funny too - I'll never forget the time she showed one of our guests to the
ladies; opened the door and said "just take a seat"!
Weather it's that infectious laugh, cheeky Spanish accent and of course the
quality hairdressing; Maria has quite simply helped build the reputation of Mien.
She prides herself in producing beautiful hair and personalised exceptional
service. Maria and her husband Anthony have recently welcomed a beautiful
baby girl Isabella to their family. Many of us who have gotten to know Maria over
the years know that she has waited a long time to meet Anthony and become a
mum. What does she say when we ask her what it's like?
She says "it's the most beautiful thing you could ever do. I could not imagine my
life without Isabella. When she smiles at me, it makes me realise it was all worth
the pain". Maria is now making a special limited appearance one or two days a
week. Drop in and say Hi - i'm sure she'd love to see you xx
