About Us

Introducing Silk Hair Skin Body

Our Story

Located in the heart of Mount Martha village, Silk Hair Skin Body is the ultimate, one stop destination for hair, skin and body treatments on the Mornington Peninsula.

With our tranquil, calm, warm and natural décor, sustainable and ethical products and practices, our caring attentive team of hair stylists, beauty and massage therapists, will ensure you feel right at home. This is how we want you to feel—our home is yours!

Silk was established in 2010 by Leanne Barnes. Leanne offers 30 years’ invaluable experience as a hairdresser working and living on the Peninsula. Silk is Leanne’s third salon in our beautiful seaside town Mount Martha. She felt the Mornington Peninsula needed a salon with a difference, offering an all in one for the whole family.

Securing large premises enabled Leanne to offer all things hair Skin and Body, and to create the Men’s Den: a dedicated area that offers barbering with a pampered twist. And so Silk was born, an inviting salon dedicated to ensuring our loyal clients relax, unwind, and look and feel amazing.

We pride ourselves not only on the creative and technical abilities of our passionate team, but also on the level of care and attention that we deliver to each and every one of our clients. From the very first moment you step through our door, the Silk family will make you feel welcome and at ease. You will have no hesitation in trusting us to make you look stunning and feel great.

In all that we do, our number one priority is you – our client. 

Pamper yourself at Silk, where talent, creativity and passion combine to deliver the ultimate hair, body and beauty experience.

We’re well known for exceptional colouring from perfect foiling, and balyage, to glossy colours; Correctional Colour is our specialty. We offer complimentary  quotes and consultation for Corrective Colour, taking in  careful consideration your hair condition and history of previous colours, your expectations and our plan of bringing your hair back to healthy glossy coloured hair .

With a full range of Showpony extensions, and specialist expertise in Gadiva fan tip hair extensions, you can relax in the knowledge that your extensions will be gorgeously natural.

And, if your gorgeous locks need a little extra pampering, we can help with Cezanne Smoothing Treatments. A completely natural way to smooth your hair and tame those fly-aways, our treatment will leave your hair feeling soft, without losing any of its bounce.
