Hair Salon At Mirrambeena

A striking small hairdressing salon has been established at the Mirrambeena elderly care centre with the assistance of Margaret River Aged Advisory Committee. After the closure of the local Price Attack, the committee purchased some of its hair styling tools to improve the centre’s hairdressing facility. Hair stylist Julie Edwards pays a visit once or twice each week to provide residents with the pleasure of hairdressing in a salon environment. If you want to join or help the committee, call Fran Temby at 9757 2016 or Rod Pether at 9757 6304.

About Benji

I am married and live on a farm near Margaret River with my wife, daughter and son. I set up The Margaret River Guide to assist people coming to Margaret River Western Australia to easily find what they are looking for. I also wanted to allow people to find activities they did not know about and to be able to openly comment on/ review businesses.
