Melanie Marris, Eyebrow Stylist and Beauty Industry Pioneer
the birth of australia’s brow pioneers
In meeting MMES and Brow Code founder Melanie Marris you may sense a contradiction of sorts. Melanie is a series of contrasts in motion. She is part perfectionist, part wild creative genius, part adaptive business entrepreneur, and yes, perhaps most surprisingly, a completely down-to-earth charming connected woman.
The company Melanie Marris Eyebrow Stylist started from humble beginnings in Perth in Western Australia. Melanie recounts her absolute fascination during childhood watching her mum put on her mascara and thinking it was the coolest thing ever. She knew early in life that beauty and style were her passion. Ms. Marris left school at the age of 15, with no background in business or fashion, to pursue her dream of success in the beauty world. With her eyes set firmly on someday making her mark in the US, she enrolled in a Beauty Therapy diploma program. By age 16, certificate in hand, she was working hard in the aesthetics industry to learn all the tricks of the trade. While perfecting each of the services offered by salons, Melanie discovered that restyling women’s eyebrows transformed how women look at themselves in just 30 minutes. Bowled over by the tears of joy and outpouring of gratitude from the women she styled, Melanie set her sights on taking eyebrow fashion and grooming as far as it could go. Melanie practised day in and day out with her clients, perfecting her unique method of styling.
