You may have bid farewell to your fling with a body-boarding babe, but you can still give your look some summer loving as we flip over into fall. From keeping that bangin’ summer bod to having your locks tended to from Sydney’s best hairdressers, you’ll feel like you’re living in an endless summer.
For a hit of holistic health in the heart of Sydney, head to BodyMindLife. The Surry Hills studio offers a piece of peace, with some of this country’s best instructors leading a range of yoga and Pilates classes. Feel the heat – regardless of the temperature outside - with hi-tech infra-red heated rooms, then chill out with a free herbal tea. The warm weather may be waning, but your sun salutations don’t have to stop.
Youtopia is the perfect place to set the wheels in motion for shifting your summer body into autumn. Even though it may be getting too cold to cycle your regular park route, this indoor boutique bike studio, which provides a sanctuary-like setting with controlled lighting and refreshing imagery, helps put a unique spin on enjoying the great outdoors.
The tides may be turning, but the cool weather shouldn’t mean you have to wave your waves good bye (unless of course you have something slicker in mind!). Whether you’re after boho or beach babe, or simply would prefer to stop and smell the salty ocean air before you decide to curl, cut or colour, this seaside salon is sure to SOS (save our strands).
Life’s a beach at this Sydney salon which entices clients with a call to help them “ReCreate ReLax ReStore”. Sure, rainbow Paddlepops and cool Coronas may not be on the menu, but with tailored pampering packages designed to help you coast through an autumn afternoon, Esstudio Galleria is the perfect place to keep your summer look going.
According to the paparazzi pics from St Barts, celebrities seem to live an endless summer. However, if having fun in the sun is no longer a feasible option (you know, because a private plane to the Caribbean is going to cost you), then make your way to People Hairdressing at Potts Point aka one of Sydney’s best hairdressers. With a creative team who have lent their tressing talents to Australia’s Next Top Model, Australian Idol, MTV Australia Awards and The Voice, you’ll walk out feeling like a super star (even if you have to head back to the boardroom instead of Barbados!).
To put it simply, we worship this premium Sydney spray tanning salon. With a full skin assessment, experienced staff and superior all-natural tanning products, Tan Temple will give you the same glow you’d get from lying on the beach – without the worrying nasties like dermalogical damage, skin cancer and premature ageing!
Endota Day Spa
This one is for those having withdrawals from a summer spent getting waterfront massages in Seminyak. While cocktails served by a personal butler called Katut are in short supply, you will be treated to sublime spa offerings like expert remedial massages, beauty treatments and advanced facials including organic, glycolic, and hydro-microdermabrasion. And no matter how cheap your Jetstar flight to Bali was, we’re willing to bet Endota Day Spa in Paddington is probably better value.
The Day Spa at The Langham
Can’t afford to spring for a night at the Langham? You can still take advantage of the offerings at this historic five star hotel in The Rocks district by spending a day there. Mini bars and buffet breakfasts may not be on The Day Spa’s menu but a lavish underground sanctuary with attentive therapists providing holistic treatments to pamper you, certainly is! So keep that dry winter skin at bay (ugh!) by giving your face a bit of love before winter really hits. After all, they do say prevention is better than cure!
