Much like LA – Sydney is a sprawling city. From pristine Palm Beach in the north, to the ever iconic Bondi in the east…and while getting from one side of the city to the isn’t particularly easy, what distance brings is secluded pockets… especially when it comes to beauty hotspots. So whether you’re after that famous Aussie glow (fake, of course) or coveted beachy waves, we can guarantee you’ll find somewhere that will do the job in Sydney, and no matter what corner you’re visiting or living in – we’ve got the place for you.
BROWS & LASHES?
KRISTIN FISHER EYEBROWS, DOUBLE BAY
Responsible for some of Australia’s most grammable brows (think the likes of Nadia Fairfax and Yan Yan Chan), Kristin Fisher prides herself on a tailor-made attitude when it comes to taming the face framing feature. Offering services that range from a wax and tint to semi-permanent ombre and feathering combination, the salon is also one of the chicest spots in Sydney. To book in, head here.
RATIONALE, BALMAIN, MOSMAN, WOOLLAHRA, ROSEBERY & DAVID JONES SYDNEY
Australia’s best (or worst, depending on how you look at it) kept secret, the Rationale glow is hard to understand without seeing it for yourself. Founded to bring sun damage and protection to the forefront of skincare, this thesis serves as the base for the Rationale Essential Six product line. Compliment this with a Rationale facial (my favourite is the CryoGenic) and you won’t know yourself. It doesn’t come cheap, but you’ll be seeing the benefits for months. To book in, call your nearest Flagship store. Find the number here.
BOHEMIA BLOWDRY BAR, MANLY
Exactly what you’d expect from the North side of Sydney’s most popular beach suburb, Bohemia’s speciality is an effortless beach wave… but beach waves aren’t the only style this local salon can nail. From bridal parties to festival do’s, Bohemia is the go-to for nailing ‘woke up like this’ chic, trust us. To book in, head here.
THE PARLOUR ROOM, CLOVELLY
Facials, waxing, nails…The Parlour Room does it all, and well. But if you’re looking for the best fake tan in Sydney – this is the place. Stocking a range of brands with different colour bases, the gorgeous and knowledgeable staff decide which to use based on your skin tone, to ensure you’re perfectly bronzed without a scrap of orange. It also seems to be the theme, but you’d be hard pressed to find an ugly salon space in Sydney, the Parlour Room is no exception. To book in, head here.
JOCELYN PETRONI, WOOLLAHRA
You may have heard Jocelyn Petroni’s name tossed around as Sydney’s elite skin expert – but did you know she’s also Sydney’s go-to for nails? As the official manicurist for Chanel, Jocelyn’s work is frequently featured in Australia’s most coveted publications such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, ELLE, and Jones. Her boutique salon tucked away in leafy Woollahra is known for its holistic approach to beauty, involving meditation and reiki practices with each treatment, and boasts a cult following including celebrities like Miranda Kerr, Megan Gale and Michelle Bridges.
