With a name as creative as its owner, The Girl in the Green Scarf is a unique beauty and vintage retail concept that’s been gathering fans in Flemington since it opened eight months ago. Staying true to the 1960s layout of the original two-room salon, Rebecca Paris has carved out two extraordinary spaces in which to showcase her twin talents. ‘‘I’ve been in the hair and beauty game for 20 years, working with industry leaders in Sydney and Melbourne. But I always had a dream of combining a beauty salon with a beautiful shop. ‘‘After I saw the movie, Confessions of a Shopaholic, I knew I had the right name for my place — it’s a line from the movie, which even has the main character named Rebecca!’’ This is a magical place, one designed to give women a complete hair and beauty makeover tailored to exact requirements, and a shopping experience with the thrill of a treasure hunt. ‘‘The shop at the front is a world to get lost in,’’ says Rebecca, ‘‘a quiet space to meander through and discover wonderful new and vintage homewares, clothing and accessories, jewellery, sleepwear and my own brand (love & sugar) of hand-poured candles perched in vintage glasses and tea cups.’’ Rebecca’s vintage pieces are right at home in quirky displays that use 1960s suitcases and an 1800s fi replace as a wall rack. It’s a lovely step back in time, she says, in keeping with another of her special treats. ‘‘The salon specialises in wedding and special occasion hair and make-up. We also have something quite different: a high tea service for groups. This gives a bride a beautiful experience with her girlfriends where they can take time out from the wedding craziness. ‘‘I believe The Girl in the Green Scarf is a concept like no other. Where else can a lady leave a salon feeling glammed up, then top it off with indulgent retail therapy on her way out? ‘‘And where else would you fi nd the owner always decked out in, of course, a green scarf?’
