I am a sucker for a new beauty product. I have so many moisturisers and…
Welcome to Canberra’s little black book of beauty, its time to pamper yourself.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect blow wave or a set of unique nails, Canberra has everything you need to look your best.
Prepare to unwind and bliss out as we take you through the best in the business.
For a mani-pedi
The Beautique by Jessica Peris is not your typical nail salon. Step into the salon and feel right at home with staff that feel more like old friends.
Treat yourself to a spectacular set of hand-painted nails, with details so intricate, they’ll take your breath away.
For fabulous brows
At brow mecca The Lab, first-timers get a consultation (they practically get out the protracter and measure your brows), before a tweeze and a wax so neat, they’ve become legendary in Canberra.
After a brow tint? The artists will mix a custom cocktail of colours to suit your skin type, personal preference and hair colour.
For a relaxing massage
Did someone say Scandi-style spa? Oh yes, you’ll want to grab the girls (or your other half) and book in at Hale Spa.
Escape to a place of complete indulgence and relaxation with five-star facilities and service within an elegant sanctuary. For a full body and mind recharge, start by boosting your circulation in the infrared sauna and steam room.
Then disappear into your private treatment room for Hale Spa’s signature massage, a gentle rhythmic massage using Swedish techniques.
For the perfect blow dry
Licensed and pouring local wines, the full-service Saloon is where Canberra night’s get started.
Have your lashes lifted, your party face put on or pick to have a Saloon signature blow-dry. You’ll be sure to turn heads after you’ve visited Saloon.
For the whole body
Mother nature has no time for technology, so switch your phone off and prepare to immerse yourself in nature.
Located in a lush pocket of the Australian National Botanic Gardens, Jindii Eco Spa enriches detoxifying bathing, body and relaxation therapies with native ingredients like Vitamin C staked native hibiscus.
Jindii’s Native Elements treatment, inspired by Indigenous healing practices, uses the burning of plants, a grounding foot bath and heated stones to release muscle tension and enhance well being.
