The newest addition to the Wellington beauty scene is Lower Hutt’s Doll Face Beauty Hub. The shop is owned by Debbie Parlakchief, and has a beauty blending service for foundation and lipstick, which allows customers to mix and match hues until they find the exact right shade for their skin tone. The customised shades are then added to pre-made bases by Beauty Hub staff on-location at the back of the shop, and each customer’s special formula is kept on file at the store to ease repurchases. Parlakchief says she saw similar beauty salons in New York, and wanted to bring the concept to New Zealand. The beauty salon also has a full range of cosmetics by Doll Face, and also offers beauty treatments and nail art.
