A little bit about me


I know many Museo clients know me well, and some have even known me since I was 21 and have been with me since my first salon days in Fremantle. But there are probably just as many of you who only glimpse me and don’t know a thing about me. So, here is a little work history.


For many years I worked as an Aesthetician and Shiatsu Practitioner, specialising in advanced skin therapies, acne treatments and relaxation services. As our business grew our family grew with the arrival our two gorgeous girls now aged 17 and 12 years.


Throughout the past 2 decades I’ve worn many hats and worked in a variety of roles within Museo. Having expanded and renovated the business 4 times in the past 18 years and at times having close to 40 employees, Museo has certainly kept me very busy, but it also ignited my business mindset. I love all things business (well not the paperwork so I have help) but I like the changes and challenges that come with being in business.


There have been times when it has certainly been too much – the juggle of parenting whilst running a small business, like who looks after the kids when you both want to be taking the meeting and being a husband and wife team and living it 24 hours a day teaches you to instil boundaries the hard way– I’ve learnt not to sweat the small stuff.


We are all getting older and it’s not so bad


I’m now well into my forties. It’s not so bad. I have a terrific husband and kids I adore who I’m certain adore me back and still love to hang out with me, I have a great family and beautiful supportive girlfriends who understand me and I them. I’m established in my career and stimulated by my work and more confident and comfortable in my skin than ever before.  


I recognise how important time is and that the choices we make today with the quality of our eating, exercising, mental stimulation and relaxation will affect how well we age into our 60’s, 70’s 80’s and I hope our 90’s.


I have no issue with aging, but with age, your skin and body does need some help as everything starts to head south and get a little creaky. I would like to be the fittest and healthiest I can be with a skin and body that allows me to have the confidence to do everything in life I want to (please note I’m a realist and the idea of ever being in a bikini in public is long gone)


I’m at the point where you realize you need to put certain things into practice if you want to lead a happy and healthy life and that you need to continually find that balance of incorporating the important elements in life that you personally need ( it differs for us all )to stay fit, healthy and 'feeling like you'  amidst the general duties of being an adult, work life and for those of us that are also parents and carers for others. Life can be crazy.....


Why I do what I do

I love being able to offer a haven where you can come back to being just you. Whether it is just coming to have your hair done each month to look like the normal you or to enjoy a relaxing massage to unwind the mental stress and tight body to feel like the normal you or to improve and enhance your skin so that you have a more confident you fills me with joy and I love that so many men and women understand the importance of taking time for yourself and that when coming to Museo we look after you the moment you walk in the door.


So let’s talk skin and what’s going to help

I’m a prolific reader of everything and I’m not a gimmicky girl at all. Only if it’s proven to work, has the research behind it and we’ve trialled it, will it be offered at Museo.


Combining different modalities and skin treatments will give you the best success, whether we are treating a skin condition, disorder or general aging.


One of my favourite skin treatments to have that’s quick and easy and gives fantastic results is a Dermal Peel and if you’re looking for a serious skin transformation, a series of Dermal Planning peels from O Cosmedics may be the answer. Based on medical strength actives, pure, chiral ingredients, biomimetic and encapsulated carriers, Pro. Dermal Planning treatments offer intense skin changing results, skin youth, health and radiance. A fantastic combination of medical grade ingredients while remaining paraben, petrochemical, preservative and SLS-free.


Bespoke dermal planning skin treatments can transform the skin to achieve cell optimization… and O Dermal peels offer 2 perfect entry-level enzyme peels for the most unexperienced of skins or alternately the first step in a double power peel combination treatment for serious skin changing results.


POMEGRANATE PEEL: The ideal entry level peel for even the most sensitive of skins to renew and boost hydration.


This gentle yet effective enzyme peel is a must have! An ideal entry level peel for the most unexperienced of skins or the first step in a double peel treatment for serious skin changing results. Pomegranate enzymes effectively lift and digest redundant cells whilst Peel moist, Multifruit BSC, Lactic Acid and Jojoba esters hydrate, moisturise, repair and reduce inflammation. An ideal peel to combine with multiple modalities.


PUMPKIN ENZYME & FRUIT ACID PEEL: A gentle yet effective enzyme peel for all skins especially for sun damage and age correction.

Pumpkin Enzyme & Fruit Acid Peel is a perfect formulation of 30% Pumpkin enzymes, pumpkin extract and natural fruit acids married together with the healing and moisturising benefits of Jojoba esters making this an ideal peel for all skins. This peel effectively eliminates redundant cells therefore accelerating the skin’s cellular renewal to reveal fresher, smoother skin whilst restoring natural barrier function and increasing hydration. An ideal entry level peel.


CATALYST RETINOL PEEL: The perfect Vitamin A anti- aging peel, perfect for all skin types looking for skin health, repair and correction.

Concentrated levels of pure Retinol and encapsulated Retinol, Niacinamide and Natural Fruit Acids work together to counteract skin aging, improve the appearance of UV damage, normalise keratinisation to improve the skin’s cellular renewal process, refine and resurface the skin, even out skin tone and provide potent anti-inflammatory activity in even the most weakened skins.


OXYGENATING ENZYME PEEL: The perfect peel for all skin types, an instant pick me up to awaken, renew and smooth even the most tired of skins.

Perfectly formulated with high levels of Natural Fruit Acids, Papaya, Pumpkin and Pomegranate enzymes and perfectly Infused with intense oxygenating and moisturising super peptides! This treatment increases desquamation and in turn hydration of the skin cells whilst significantly accelerating the skin’s cellular renewal process. Hydrate, plump and renew the skin in just one application!

BIO-WHITE PEPTIDE PEEL: Hi-strength vitamin C and peptide peel, especially for pigmented, uneven skin tone, dull and devitalised skins.

A unique biomimetic peptide encapsulated in a liposome allowing optimal whitening and lightening effects on the skin. With concentrated levels of Vitamin C, encapsulated Resveratrol, Niacinamide and natural fruit acids this treatment has the power to stimulate cellular turnover whilst protecting collagen and elastin! It is anti-ageing, hydrating, brightening, nourishing and anti-inflammatory.

ALPHA-BETA PEEL: “The serious”, resurfacing peel, perfect for skins looking for intense skin correction and transformation.

Perfect for oily, problematic skin that it is need of extreme exfoliation.

Not for the faint hearted and not before a special occasion.  

Push your skin further with our advanced power peeling – double layered peels!

Whether it be double enzymes, layering of peels or applying leave on peels for 5 + hours, these are the seriously skin transforming treatments you want to have. These can be done as a once off booster although for superior results we recommend a bespoke peeling program of 4-6 peels to achieve dramatic results!

We all know Vitamin C is great for our health - from oranges on the soccer field to lemon juice when you're sick, Vitamin C is good for you. But do you know why you should be using it on your skin?


Vitamin C can be found in many skincare products, but it's important to understand why you should be incorporating this nutrient into your skincare regime. For younger skins, ages 20-35, Vitamin C is essential for the formation of collagen and elastin fibres, which will help your skin age better through the years and help ensure a more youthful appearance as you age.


For older skins that may not have been reaping the benefits of vitamin c for years, higher concentration formulas like serums and boosters which contain up to 25% vitamin c create very visible results. The skin is much brighter, lighter and more luminous, creating a smoother appearance and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

At Museo Skin + Spa, we have personally been using Vitamin C serums for years, some of us up to 20 years, with significant results. If you are looking to boost your skincare regime and want a product that is not only full of antioxidants but is guaranteed to help you have better skin in the future, then you can't go past a Vitamin C based product, like the O Cosmedics Pure C & BHA powder. This pure L - Ascorbic acid with encapsulated BHA offers daily exfoliation benefits second to none.

Combats free radicals and signs of aging, ideal for promoting a healthy, youthful and luminous complexion. Protect your skin from free radical damage by applying half a scoop into your morning serum or hydrator.

We would always recommend that our clients use a nice home care product with a good dose of Vitamin C in it as part of your daily routine as insurance for your skin into the future.

For best results use O Cosmedics Pure C & BHA powder in conjunction with an O Cosmedics  Bio White Peptide Peel enhanced with concentrated levels of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and natural fruit acids, making it great for age spots and uneven skin tone as it brightens, lightens and reduces pigmentation. Book a dermal peel here    

Choosing to take excellent care of your skin is something you must actively do. By choosing products full of Vitamin C, you can be sure of a more youthful complexion and beautiful skin for years to come.

Celebrating 20 Years Of Museo | skin clinic and hair salon | Museo


It has just clocked 20 years since Adam and I opened the doors to Museo, our little abode, our own foray into business ownership. We started this baby when we were babies ourselves at just 27 years old, and we feel so blessed and lucky to still be working in this business, still loving being in business and still being exceptionally passionate about what it is that we do, despite the challenges and changes along the way.


We had no idea that we would still be in some version of the Museo that we began 20 years ago. What was Museo Hair Body Health evolved into Museo Salon + Spa and we are now Museo Skin + Spa + Hair, but the core principles remain the same – wholistic health, fabulous hair and beautiful relaxed bodies and great skin walk out of our salon every day. After many renovations and moves across different locations, expanding out and contracting and focussing back in, we are still here.


We are so grateful for the wonderful men and women that we work with each and every day. We both love coming into work and being surrounded by our team, those people who bring their caring and passion for what they do to work every day and they absolutely make my day! I love having us all under one roof again, sitting comfortably together, and I just want to say a huge thank you to my team for making our working life such a pleasure.


We would also like to thank all our loyal guests who have loved what we have created over these past 20 years and it makes our hearts sing that you found your place to feel comfortable in, relax in and transform within to ‘make you feel like you’ in whatever way was needed.

As a team, we thank you for your love and friendship you give us when you walk in our doors and as Directors we thank you for truly ‘seeing' those beautiful women and men who spend time servicing you and making you feel special and wonderful. They are consummate professionals and give above and beyond to make everything possible and amazing for you.


Lastly, Adam and I thank everyone who has worked for us during these past 20 years. There have been many life-long friendships formed. Museo has always been a demanding place to work with a high expectation of work ethic, professionalism, and an attitude to always improve one’s self and the craft, but gosh we have had some fun along the way. Thank you each and every one of you for your time with us. We have had amazing staff to work alongside over the years but it is truly humbling to reach 20 years and unequivocally adore each and every person I get to work with each day and be so proud of the team we currently have.


At this time of year, it’s so important to be thankful. 2019 has certainly been one of our best years ever, and we are so grateful for those who have come on the journey with us. Thank you Museo team - staff and clients, past and present - for this beautiful life and for being our second family.


Wishing you and yours a silly season full of gratitude, full hearts and full bellies.


Love, Wendy.


Kick start your new year by looking at ALL aspects of your health.


2018 was a great year. The Museo Skin Clinic, Spa and Hair Salon has flourished, and we are looking forward to another amazing year in 2019 at Museo. This year is going to bring some great excitement and some amazing changes, so watch this space…


We have loved having a full year being altogether in the one abode - okay, sometimes working with my husband in the same building can be testing! Our clients, however, have loved the ease of it - especially being a one-stop-shop and for those that sometimes don’t necessarily plan too much but spontaneously enjoy a massage on the spot, and a haircut after their facial has been grabbed by many.


It’s our 20-year anniversary this November which is A M A Z I N G so 2019 is going to be a big year, full of excitement and celebration.


We all had a great year working together and I truly love working alongside these fantastic women + 2 boys each day. We all work so hard to bring you the best Museo experience – your time for you - and seeing it’s our 20-year anniversary, it’s nice to reflect on the fantastic bunch of people we have on board. We’ve had wonderful staff over the past 2 decades and some who we will have lifelong friendships with, and they know who they are… But I have a pretty special work life these days with the calibre of women I work alongside each day. I feel very lucky.


So, it’s a new year and time to start to make more solid promises to myself of how I wish to be this year. Like many other women with careers, business and school-aged children, life is full – too full at times and I tend to take a backseat or delay to action those things that will benefit me the most in regard to my health and wellbeing.


I’m getting older (I know I’m still young to some) but with an immune disorder (I swear it was from being so sick in pregnancy) and a lovely genetic thing I’ve inherited – I have to prioritize my health. Watching my weight, maintaining my fitness and eating well, takes thought, organization, mindfulness and dedication… easy to write but a lot harder to action and maintain.


So 2019 is the year some of the above has to stick and become a way of life. And that applies to Museo as well.


Skin health is my passion and taking time out for yourself is my mantra and so we are introducing lots of great things this year for our amazing clients to action and embrace in their own wellness routine.


You’ll notice our new spa menu has more of a health focus, so please ask at your next visit what’s on offer with our seasonal plates and tea offerings.


Gut health is so vital to our overall wellbeing and to support that, we are introducing a fantastic range of teas, green powders and skin nutrition supplements to help clear skin conditions and help build better gut health and overall better health. I personally have started the new year with my daily dose of clean tea and nutritional antioxidant superfood powder and I’m enjoying clean eating and a good exercise routine.


We look forward to offering you a clean tea next time you’re in at Museo and you can peruse our new Miss Vitality health range. You will know by now that anything we bring in has been tried and tested for some time and we only promote products that we genuinely love and believe in.


We will be offering some amazing Spa, Skin + Health offers which we are very excited to bring you and would love your thoughts on. Does the idea of some pre-treatment stretching really appeal to you? Would you love to attend regular yoga classes at Museo?


We want to commit in 2019 to helping you achieve your best self through more than just great skin and fabulous hair – we want to take a more wholistic approach and we are excited to go on that journey with you. Dedicating time to yourself is a decision you will never regret – and just maybe, it will make 2019 your best year ever.



Museo recently worked with some of the best wedding vendors across Perth to create a dream wedding day for Emma & Matt, who were married at Nedlands Yacht Club.

Museo were responsible for the stunning hair and makeup styling for the bride and her bridal party on the day, ensuring all these lovely girls looked and felt their absolute best in this stunning wedding.


For Emma, a softly swept upstyle was the logical choice, as it provided the perfect mounting place for her gorgeous long veil, an absolute showstopper against the back of this HobNob Bridal wedding dress. The delicately pulled back edges of this style meant that well into the evening of dancing, this style holds its own and stays put. You can see that well into the evening, Emma’s hair still looks fresh and poised, perfect for this beautiful bride.


Each of the bridesmaids wore a different variation of stunning Adrianna Papell beaded gowns, and so for each bridesmaid we created a hair style as unique as they were.Soft upstyles and soft curls across all the bridesmaids gave them a coordinated look without being matchy matchy and allowed each style to really sit and suit each of these beautiful women.

For this beautiful group of ladies, we focussed on soft, natural makeup designed to enhance their features without being overly structured. A soft, dark eye, natural brows and a hint of highlighter in all the right places adds great contrast on each face, while a soft rosy blush adds a touch of spring to each of these gorgeous ladies. A slightly bolder pink lip for the bridesmaids really complimented their blush dresses, while the bride chose to stay soft and natural in her lip colour. For these lovely ladies, makeup was all about adding a little to what they all had, rather than detracting from their stunning dresses or the beautiful bride.


The team at Museo have worked on many stunning weddings in Mount Lawley and Perth, creating beautiful looks for brides, grooms and the bridal party with our unique blend of salon, spa and skin for both men and women. Whether you are looking for the perfect spa experience to relax in prior to your wedding day, a beautiful team of hairdressers to create a gorgeous look or talented makeup artists who know how to achieve just the right look, the team at Museo would love to help you have your dream wedding day. We offer Wedding Spa Packages designed with your bride-tribe in mind and are available for makeup and hair services on site in our beautiful salon and spa space. Book online with the Museo team at and we hope to be part of your dream day.

Around Mother's Day, we are all reminded of the incredible contributions these women make to our lives. Mothers are the pillars of the family, always holding everyone else up, often pushed to exhaustion on a daily basis trying to do it all. That's not to say mums begrudge the work, but often they need to give themselves permission to celebrate themselves.
