A Sydney eyebrow artist who was caught buying cocaine during the Covid lockdown has launched proceedings to overturn her conviction.

Kristin Fisher was convicted and fined $550 after failing to appear in Waverley Court Tuesday, charged with possessing a banned drug and failing to comply with public health regulations.

But a date was set on Friday for Fisher, who goes by her married name Barnes in court documents, to challenge the criminal conviction.

Her lawyer Michael Bowe hopes her conviction will be overturned when the case returns to Waverley Court on October 6.

Fisher insists she was unaware of Tuesday’s court date and would have attended had she known, Bowe said.

The 36-year-old cooled off on Friday at Nielson Park Beach, in eastern Sydney, with a friend while her lawyer filed the legal application.

She has remained relatively inconspicuous since the last court hearing, but shared several photos Friday afternoon as they relaxed in the sun.

Police found Fisher in the backseat of a drug dealer’s Kia Rio in Bondi, eastern Sydney, late in the evening on July 17.

The car was initially pulled over for illegally overtaking another vehicle, but police say Fisher’s suspicious behavior prompted them to investigate further.

Officers reportedly found two bags of cocaine at the feet of the mother of two, claimed she was “infuriated” and tried to exit the car through the other side door.

Court documents show that the mother of two “sat frantically in the passenger seat, trying to get out of the vehicle and evade interaction with police.”

When the police asked the driver how she knew Fisher, they claimed the dealer couldn’t give any details or even tell the officers her name.

The beautician allegedly told officers she had been picked up from her home in Double Bay to buy the drugs, but claimed she had not handed over any money.

Fisher is one of Sydney’s most in-demand estheticians and runs a salon in the affluent suburb of Double Bay.

Before the government agreed to reopen beauty salons when the state reached a 70 percent vaccination rate, Fisher offered to provide her services to clients as a temporary solution to Covid-19 health regulations.

The services would only be offered to fully vaccinated customers who live within a 5km radius, as groups of five doubly jaded residents are now allowed to gather outside.

‘Eyebrows in the park from September 13th. Who participates?’ She posted to Instagram last month.

Some of Fisher’s most well-known clients took the opportunity to get their eyebrows touched up faster than expected.

Instagram influencer Indy Clinton was one of the first to set an appointment, saying, “I’ll be there before the sun comes up. I participate’.

Celebrity stylist Suze Eskaner immediately asked where to book, while model Steffanie Tzeneros joked, “Pls my eyebrows are connect.”

Kate Waterhouse, the daughter of horse trainer and businesswoman Gai, and designer Brooke Testoni both also indicated that they would like to make an appointment.
