Mariella Contrusceri

Meet the fabulous Mariella!

A beloved Maurice Meade Team member of 27 years. We are so blessed to have her part of the Maurice Meade family.

Having known Mariella for many years, we asked her if we could pop over to her place for some cannoli’s, champagne, and a little catch up/ family photoshoot. On arrival we were spoilt with homemade cannoli, cake, and beautiful champagne. Our gracious host made sure our flutes were never empty, and that our stomachs had to be full! This family loves to joke and laugh with one another, which made us feel right at home.

Rosanne and Joanne are Mariella’s two amazing daughters. Like most mothers, Mariella isn’t one to blow her own horn, so we got her daughters to do it for her! Rosanne being a loyal Maurice Meade client shares with us some of the amazing qualities of her mother, that we know and love to be the fabulous Mariella.

Her daughters say she is a truly amazing mother and grandmother to her 6 grandchildren. She is warm and caring almost to a fault! Rosanne says,

She is the most honest person you will ever meet. She is so unapologetically herself and just so realShe would do anything for us and brought us up to be strong resilient women which is also being passed down to our ­­­­-­­­daughters resulting in two generations of my Mums wisdom’ says Rosanne.

 Along with her Maternal wisdom, Mariella has acquired a great deal of hair wisdom and expertise. For 27 years Mariella has been the first point of contact at Maurice Meade for our Karrinyup clients. You will find Mariella at the front desk looking amazing and giving clients the best advice on which service will suit them and which products to incorporate into their hair care routine.

Mariella knows her products. Rosanne says, ‘My sister and I love when a new product comes in and she tells us that we need it in our lives’.

She knows exactly what clients need for their unique hair type, giving them that salon-perfect hair in-between appointments.

For herself, Mariella loves using the Blond Absolu collection from Kérastase. The lifesaving collection is designed for lightened hair that needs moisture and toning. The Blond Absolu Lumier shampoo contains hyaluronic acid for hydration. The next step in her hair routine is the Violet Blond Absolu mask to tone and moisturise! Mariella likes to call herself the ‘hair spray queen’. This queen likes to finish her routine with the Air Fix hairspray by L’Oréal Tecni Art and Fresh affair dry shampoo by from Kérastase to ensure a chic clean look.

It’s always a family affair when Mariella’s family come and visit the salon. Even though it may be a second home to them they always get the full Maurice Meade experience. The grandchildren especially love the basin massages. Her daughters Joanne and Rosanne love taking a break from the craziness of life to get pampered, and have their colour refreshed.

We are so grateful to have team members like Mariella. Maurice Meade is a family run business, so we treat our team like family too. It’s been a great pleasure to watch Mariella and her family grow. Seeing them all together was so special. They radiate true happiness and joy! 

For 48 years Maurice Meade has celebrated all women and their individual beauty. These profiles are a homage to all our amazing clients that put their trust in our talented Hair Artists to help them look and feel their best.
