Beauty in the Woods

Rockhampton Small Business

Originally from Mundubbera, Josie Weller is a twenty-three year old girl boss and owner of the incredibly beautiful salon, Beauty in the Woods.

At just 19 years of age, she had a desire to bring a touch of luxury to her small country town. Beauty in the Woods was born in 2015 as a place where people could escape the day-to-day demand of country living and indulge in some relaxation.

Wanting to expand her business, Josie decided to make the move to Rockhampton in November 2018.

“Rockhampton is the perfect hub for business. With so many remote communities surrounding us who use Rockhampton as a central destination, it just makes sense.”

From a young age, Josie formed a love for beauty and wanted to make people feel special. When a client steps through the door, Josie’s mission is to provide them with a personalised experience in a setting that is like no other. Offering everything from tinting, waxing, manicures, pedicures, massages and facials, Beauty in the Woods is not just your typical beauty salon. It’s a service that is tailored specifically for you, allowing you to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life in a calming and unique environment.

Set along the beautiful new revitalised riverside precinct, Beauty in the Woods is a space of true beauty.

“By combining my flair for decor design and passion for beauty, I have not only created my own piece of paradise but opened the doors to allow others to enjoy the beauty within.”

As a young business owner, Josie says that the key to success at such a young age is to find your passion and stay true to your brand. Being willing to put in the hard yards is also so important.

“Success doesn’t happen overnight. You have to work at it but as long as you have a strong passion, it will shine through.”

Beauty in the Woods is located at 174 Quay Street and is open Tuesday 9am - 5pm, Wednesday 10am - 6pm, Thursday 10am - 7pm, Friday 9am - 5pm, Saturday 8am - 1pm, Sunday and Monday closed.
