Moving half way across the world and opening a second salon in Walsh Bay with an exclusive French approach are business milestones Marie-France Barget is proud of. But what really drives the owner of Marie-France Group is a passion to help people put their best self forward.

“At the age of 30 I moved to Australia, with the idea of creating an innovative hair and beauty brand. I wanted to start a business that was different to the one my parents created forty years earlier. I wanted a business where I was not the face of but behind a brand that emphasised the concept of team – this is why I chose the brand name 'Marie-France Group,' says Marie-France.
