Just because you’re covered head to toe, doesn’t mean you can’t pamper yourself a little. In fact, there are plenty of beauty treatments in Sydney worth treating yourself to in winter.
Here’s what Sydney’s best beauty salons are serving up when the temperature’s down.
Permanent hair removal with IPL at ThaSpa
We’d all rather be sipping margaritas come summer, rather than fighting off fuzzy legs. Winter is the best time to sort out your long-term investment in a hairless bod, as the sun is less harsh on your skin after treatment. Check out these pro tips from ThaSpa. Once you’re done, the microdermabrasion is also a great way to smooth out for summer (scaly legs, no more!).
Roving tans from Tan Temple
When it’s just too chilly to head out to get your winter glow, Tan Temple will come to you. That’s right – stay warm and warm up your skin tone right at home. Easy!
Take your spa to the skies at Park Hyatt
Once you’ve steamed yourself like a dumpling in their steam room, hit up The Spa at the Park Hyatt. If you need an excuse for more extra pampering, becoming a spa member or staying as a guest gives you access to the rooftop, with gorgeous views overlooking Sydney Harbour. In addition to enjoying the spa bubbles, you can also opt for bubbles and dessert, along with a nice relaxing massage.
Repair your hair at People Hairdressing
Go for the head massage at People Hairdressing, but stay for the hair therapy, which will moisturise and add shine. Now’s the perfect time to undo any damage to your hair so it’s ready to impress when you can’t hide it under that beanie of yours.
Treat your tresses to an Aveda ritual at Juliana Marcs
Step into Juliana Marcs in Double Bay and instantly feel at ease. Every service comes with a complimentary Aveda Rituals of Renewal treatment which involves a Comforting Tea, customised hair consultation, aroma sensory journey and massage (one of the best parts of getting your hair cut!), and stress-relieving shampoo ritual. You’ll not only leave the salon with beautiful hair, but you’ll be so relaxed you’ll almost forget how cold it is (or where you parked your car).
Furrow your fiercest brows with The Brow Bar
With the rest of you all wrapped up in winter, your face is going to be stealing the limelight. Dark winter hues are the perfect excuse for fierce brows, but to avoid going all Frida Kahlo, head to the pros at The Brow Bar.
De-stress with a Maya and John facial
The anti-stress facial at Maya and John is perfect for fending off harsh weather conditions (and harsher times in life). Walk out all hydrated with a fresh face while feeling like a million bucks.
