Urbane Hair And Beauty
Got a spare 30 minutes? Then you have time for some pampering at the one-stop beauty and hairdresser shop, catering to mums and business people on the go!
Nestled in a nearby complex from Garden City Shopping Centre in Upper Mount Gravatt, this beauty salon and hairdresser claim to do it all, offering a multitude of hair, beauty and grooming services, such as facials, tanning, nails and massages.
What sets them apart is their ‘express’ services, catering to those who are time poor. For the time taken to eat meal, you can now be rejuvenated with an express 25 minute lavender foot refresh ($35), a 30 minute petite manicure ($35), or a quick fix 25 minute facial ($35). This is particularly popular for working people who can drop by during their break and for the mum’s needing a quick escape.
And this is exactly how Maya, the owner, envisaged her salon. As a mum herself, she was inspired to create a one-stop shop that mum’s could go to for a quick beauty fix.
Also, girls getting their hair coloured can opt for the express pedicures or facials while waiting for their colour to absorb – this just might mark the end of boring hairdresser visits spent flipping through magazines!
Microdermabrasion facial treatments are among the most popular (valued at $95 for 60 minutes). This medical-grade treatment works wonders with skin, exfoliating and stimulating the production of collagen, revealing a firmer and radiant complexion and improving other skin concerns like pigmentation and acne scars.
There’s a high performance treatment for every skin concern under the sun. You can try the Vitapeel (30 minutes, $85) for aged or sun damaged skin, or the BHA Skin Peel (30 minutes, $95), treating oily skin, pores and acne.
Whatever the treatment, you’ll be left in the soft and trusted hands of experienced beauticians, Jannae and Grainne, who will ensure that the mood is set for you to drift off into the heavens, complemented with relaxing music and exotic scents.
The salon uses Ultraceuticals, a leading Australian skin care range, which is non-genetically modified and free from all the nasties like harsh chemicals and parabens. Similarly, their makeup brand, Youngblood is made entirely from minerals, and is perfect for consumers living in Australia’s harsh conditions.
You can purchase Ultraceutics and Youngblood products in salon, and also a range of hair products from top-end brands like Kerastase and Label M. Or you can pick out a jazzy necklace or earrings, as Adorne jewellery pieces are scattered around the salon, doubling as decoration.
It’s worth mentioning that they also have some great offers on special such as $20 tanning on Thursdays, $150 hair and makeup semi formal/formal packages, and 2 microdermabrasion 30 minute sessions for $99 (just face, add décolletage for extra $30).
