Rejoice, Urban Listers! Spring is just around the corner, which means beautiful weather, beach life (this may involve putting on a bikini), and your sweat-friendly beauty regime is back in play.
Perhaps you've let yourself go a little in the winter months (no judgment here), and the thought of baring your un-toned and pale limbs has you running for the nearest beauty salon.
We hear you.
Thankfully, our friends down at Emporium Fortitude Valley, as usual, have the goods when it comes to seasonal must-haves, so they've given us the heads up on the products and treatments you need now to prep' that bod' for spring.
Miracle Hair Treatment by Eleven | The Blow Dry Bar
Yep, our locks need a miracle. Give your stressed tresses a break with this hair treatment by the wonder workers at Emporium Fortitude Valley's Blow Dry Bar. Basically eleven treatments in one handy to use serum, it will protect your hair against the elements while nourishing, moisturising, detangling, and controlling frizz. Hallelujah!

SpiruLines Green Lift Eyes | Ella Bache
The only bags you'll be packing this spring are the ones for your tropical holiday, thanks to this super hydrating, ultra-firming eye cream from Ella Bache. Affectionately known as the 'No Knife Eye Lift', its compact enough to carry around in your handbag, or your beach bag. Available from the 1st of October, you'll probably need to get in line.

The fashionable crew at Toni & Guy The Valley love giving locks a spruce up for spring. Using their new, star product from Wella they'll give you foil-free highlights so good, your follicles won't know what has hit them. Subtle, sun-kissed hair before you even get to the beach? Sign us up!
Killer Honey EDP by Neotantric | The Emporium Barber
The girls aren't the only ones in need of a spruce up come springtime. The boys can get their beauty needs met, including hair cuts, cut throat shaves, male grooming products and espressos, at Emporium Barber. Their very male-friendly shop is home to a selection of uber manly scents. Our pick is the Killer Honey by Neotantric. Sweet but deadly.

O.P.I Mani in Are We There Yet | Deluxe Nail Spa
Spring beauty counts from your fingers to your toes, so hop along to Deluxe Nail Clinic for a refreshing manicure to shake off the winter blues. Melon hues are just right for a new, bright season. Deluxe Nail Spa at Emporium Fortitude Valley are waiting to get their hands on your hands, so to speak.

Zoom! Whitening | Refresh Cosmetic Clinic
We are certainly partial to a good coffee or a nice glass of red, but damn it if they don't wreak havoc on our teeth. Short of drinking everything through a straw, there aren't too many ways to avoid discolouring your pearly whites. Lucky then, that Refresh Cosmetic Clinic has introduced their quick-as-lightning Zoom Whitening just in time for spring! Get those chompers lighter in less than an hour at Refresh's Emporium Fortitude Valley and Cleveland salons, and enjoy the finer things in life (wine and coffee) to your heart's content.
