Choosing the right esthetician is no easy feat, and it can make a huge difference to how you feel during and after your treatment. There's nothing worse than a disastrous eyebrow pluck, a painful wax or a facial that leaves your skin feeling less than radiant. So, to dodge all sorts of beauty faux pas, we set out to find the best salon in Sydney, somewhere we can really relax and get pampered.
Welcome to Vaia Beauty. Tucked away on Bourke Street in Surry Hills, between the terraces and coffee shops, this intimate oasis offers luxurious and completely tailored beauty treatments for its clients. The minute you step into Vaia Beauty, you'll instantly feel relaxed… And that's even before the treatment has started!
People travel from all over Sydney to experience Vaia's aromatic facials, remedial massages and top-to-toe pampering, which is no surprise as Vaia herself is one of the most in-demand estheticians in Sydney. Boasting more than a decade's experience in the beauty business, Vaia and her talented team have worked their magic on some of the most famous faces in the world (including Paris Hilton and Tina Arena), so you can trust you're in good hands.
Vaia is also a trained naturopath and prides herself on a holistic view to health and beauty, incorporating reiki to help release stress and create deep relaxation. Upon arrival, every client is provided with a consultation to ensure each skin and body treatment is personalised to their individual needs. This is NO slapdash beauty job; Vaia is incredibly passionate about her craft and helping clients achieve complexion perfection. Not only do they offer exceptional results-orientated treatments, Vaia and her team also have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to nutrition, diet, aromatherapy, reflexology and knowing which skincare products you should and shouldn't be using.
Talking about TLC, spoil yourself with a one-hour Illuminating Facial, formulated specifically to help break down and reduce pigmentation as well as rehydrate the skin, or the harmonising Aroma Ritual Facial, an indulgent treatment designed to remedy all skin concerns. If you're looking for that pre-summer glow, Vaia Beauty's Mediterranean Sunrise body treatment combines exfoliation, using pure and natural ingredients such as honey and rose, and an organic golden spray tan. Say goodbye to dry, flaky winter skin! Vaia also offers make up for all occasions (using Australian cult-label Becca), deluxe manicures, Shellac nails and natural waxing treatments.
The result? You'll walk out of Vaia Beauty feeling completely relaxed and rejuvenated. You're skin will be glowing and your worries will be washed away.
