Meet Our Team

We cultivate a close connection with our guests, allowing us to gain insight into the innermost aspects of their lives, which helps us understand who they are to enhance our prescriptions. We deeply value and respect our guests, and our utmost priority is to ensure their comfort and well-being. It brings us great joy to foster a relationship that goes beyond the conventional boundaries of therapist and customer.

So without further ado, meet our crew.

Lucy Redpath

Founder of The Hive Beauty

Professional Bio

At the age of 14 Lucy entered the beauty industry as a pimple faced trainee, excited to learn about skin and determined to rectify her own acne. After graduating from one of the most prestigious Beauty School’s in Australia and after years of learning from other professionals in the industry she eventually ventured out on her own to start up The Hive in 2016.

After working in the industry for over 17 years, and having successfully operated as a fully booked independent therapist for many years, her ambition now is to build a small team of experts to reshape what we understand a beauty salon to be.

Throughout her studies and early experiences helping people improve their skin health, Lucy began to see the value in a holistic approach to skin care: how our bodily function, gut function, home care, sleep, medication, the microbiome, stress and emotions all relate to skin health.
One of her favourite things about her work now is to continuously seek out new knowledge and share it with her clients.

She believes in the power of education, and giving the power back to the consumer in an industry filled with misdirection, greenwashing and celebrity endorsements.
Most of all, for her The Hive is a world she has created so that guests and salon team alike feel safe and welcome; a space that allows for deep relaxation, reconnection to self and rejuvenation in our busy world.

Personal Bio

Outside of the salon she loves DIY, yoga, surfing and is a social busy bee that loves putting on big dinners for her loved ones and is always up for a road trip to the beach in her campervan.

Melanie

Lead Beauty Therapist

Professional Bio

As a creative and someone with a love for beauty that goes beyond skin deep, Melanie found her place in the industry where the two would meet. Completing her Diploma of Beauty Therapy in 2019 she said ‘It was the best decision I’ve ever made’. Mel had found a path that would lead to her vocation and one that was able to foster meaningful relationships between herself and the people around her.

Mel’s greatest joys in life have all come back to one thing: connection. She believes there is immense power in human touch, and couldn't think of a better way to start a meaningful connection with our guests than with a facial.

Passionate about the skin while being incredibly intuitive, Mel performs a range of salon treatments, from lash lifting to body waxing and massage.
She endeavours to redefining beauty every day in her work, cultivating knowledge, empowerment, and self-love in herself and her clients, and has been a core part of The Hive since 2019.

Personal Bio

Outside our little haven, Mel loves spending her time enjoying water sports, weight lifting, writing and being deeply supportive and engaged in her own community.

“It's a constant way I love to live my life - with intention and a purpose to leave others better than I found them, hopefully spreading a bit of sunshine along the way.”
