Adding to Sydney’s growing directory of luxury self-care sanctuaries is UNOIT. Pronounced “You-Know-It”, this first-of-its-kind Darlinghurst beauty haven combines a sleek barber with rows of polished treatment rooms for pampering and results-driven beauty.
Behind the concept is hairstylist Costa Zacharia and aesthetician Jessica Ross, who have combined their expertise to create an entirely new, all-in-one unisex destination that’ll take you from beard trims to fades, and onto facials, laser treatments, injectables, and everything in between.
Propping up the beauty side of things is Ross, who’s wielding cutting-edge skin tech and cosmeceuticals to deliver a full spectrum of treatments suitable for any gender.
Beneath a canopy of stunning custom floral installations, hero treatments include a non-invasive facelift delivered with high-intensity focused ultrasound technology called Ultraformer, and a painless “lunchtime laser facial” that gives an all-over collagen boost and a photoshop effect to your skin with no downtime.
If that’s way too much tech for you—Ross’s serene “Revive” facial is the perfect combination of relaxation and results. Using products tailored to you and your skin's needs from Aussie brand Aspect, including a tailored serum, you’ll get a deep skin clean and a Smartlux LED session to deeply hydrate, heal, and restore your skin.
Meanwhile, Zacharia heads up hair at UNOIT, giving your typical barber experience a very welcome luxury upgrade. Covering simple cuts, buzz's, fades, and buzz-fades, each service is finished with a hot towel for that luxurious touch.
If you're really looking to treat yourself, pick "The Boss Treatment", which includes a men's haircut, deluxe cut-throat shave and mini facial, shampoo and hair-detox, scalp and neck massage in a lay-down shiatsu lounge, and—to top it all off—a made-to-measure tailored shirt from Oscar Hunt. Winning.
