With summer just around the corner, it’s finally time to climb out of that pale or for this writer, pasty skin, and unveil a beautiful bronzed body. No need to spend hours roasting yourself on Bondi sands and risking irreversible skin damage to get the look. A tan from the can saves both your time and your skin.

There are two ways to get your body from a silver shine to a golden glow:

1) Head straight to your favourite beauty salon and let a professional do the job or

2) Buy and apply a tanning spray yourself.

Salon Tanning

While in-salon spray tanning tends to be more pricey, trained professionals bestow you with a guaranteed streak-free, long-lasting quality tan that perfectly matches your individually desired skin tone.

Standing completely naked in front of a stranger can feel a little awkward at first. However, experienced salons will always provide you with optional disposable underwear to make you feel more comfortable.

A tanning expert can apply the exact amount of product needed evenly on your entire body for a flawless, natural look. Within minutes the quick-drying and mostly odourless spray tan formula will transform you into a golden summer goddess. No cleaning, no stains, no stress.

Self Tanning

At-home tanning can be a cheap and convenient alternative if you don’t go for expensive brands like St Tropez. Be aware that there are a lot of different products out there and not all of them are high quality.

Check ingredients carefully. You will have to kiss some frogs before finding the prince of tans. Instead of rocking a warm bronzy skin tone, you might just end up with “50 shades of Doritos“.

Once you find the right product, it takes some serious flexibility to spray it evenly over your entire body. Chances are, you will start off your self-tanning journey blotchy and uneven. Practice is key.

Over the past few months we have had a lot of inquiries wanting an explanation as to the different styles of lashes we do. We are aware that we have an extensive menu so we have updated and simplified it to make it easier for you to choose the perfect look for your individual needs. Also our regulars will notice a difference to the menu when booking online, so this will explain our changes.

FULL SETS

Natural Set (formally known as our Luxe Set): Silk/Mink – 70% coverage – 149

Luxe Set (formally known as our Glam Set): Silk/Mink – 90% coverage – 169

Hybrid: Mixture of 3D & Silk/Mink – 90% coverage – 179

Volume: Choice of 3D-5D Lashes – 90% coverage – 199

**this is not the same as Russian Volume

We have also amended the times of our infills to suits the type of full set you are wearing. For example, a 3 week infill for a natural set does not take as long as a 3 week fill on a Volume set. There is a slight increase on some of the treatments to allow for the extra time involved in keeping your lashes as fabulous as possible.

TIP: For the fairer maidens amongst us, if you get a lash tint with your new set it will make your eyes POP even more. AND you get your tint at 15 dollars – a discount of 10 dollars 

We hope this has cleared up a few things for you all. We look forward to looking after you in our salon in the near future.

Stay fabulous forever !!!

After taking some time off after giving birth (it never sounds quite right saying “time off” as looking after newborns is round the clock hard work!), Wendy is returning to Elegant Lashes.

From November, Wendy is available for Cosmetic Tattooing appointments at our Bondi Junction salon. This is great news for our returning clients wanting to book back in for a brow refresh and also for our clients new to cosmetic tattooing as Wendy is able to perform all Cosmetic Tattooing treatments for the eyes and brows including Feather Brows, Ombre Brows, Powder Brows, Saline Removal, Eyeliner, Inner Eyeliner and Smokey Eyeliner.

Wendy is particularly skilled at getting colour to hold on tricky skin types. Such as oily skin, older skin and Fitzpatrick V and Fitzpatrick VI skin types.

Cosmetic Tattooing consultations are free and there is no obligation to book afterwards.

Feather Brows

Feather Brows


Hair strokes can be created by a microblade tool or a digital machine. So what is the difference? Is one better than the other for feather brow tattooing?

Both microblading and the digital machine with a skilled practitioner will produce crisp lines and both can produce great results however the digital machine has many advantages over the microblade.

We’ve been specialising in feather brows for 5 years, in fact, one of the first salons in Sydney to do so. We have performed thousands of feather brow tattoos and continually update our training. From our experience and knowledge the digital machine is better and this is why:

The depth into the skin in which the pigment is placed is accurately measured by the action of the machine, which you just can’t do by hand with a microblade tool, and this creates a line that is consistent in depth and colour until it tapers off to the tip of the hair stroke.

Feather Brows with Digital Machine

Feather Brows with Digital Machine

The digital machine punctures the hair stokes into the skin whereas a microblade scratches a hairline across the skin. Cosmetic tattooing is a semi permanent treatment and most clients get a refresh once a year. If you get microblading done, multiple treatments of scratching the same area could lead to scarring. This is avoided with a digital machine application.

Microblading doesn’t often work with oily the skin. The colour doesn’t hold as well and in some cases may not take at all. So we always recommend a digital machine for feather brows to avoid this from happening.

Microblade Tool

Microblading often does not last as long as cosmetic tattooing with a digital machine and this is attributed to the shallowness of the application in comparison and the inconsistency in depth from applying the hair strokes manually.

So these are the advantages of a digital machine; consistent, even hair strokes, a colour that will hold longer even with oily skin, and avoiding the risk of scarring.


Now we are heading to winter it’s the perfect time to get your brows feathered. The sun is weak and the days are short, optimal for healing and hiding in the first couple of days when the colour can appear slightly darker!

Book in with Raman or Wendy, our feather brow specialists, for a free consultation, and as always, there is no obligation to book afterwards. Jump on our Instagram to check out our work.


Want your lashes to last longer? Keep them clean and the oil at bay with a lash shampoo. Mal and Merryn discovered this beauty innovation in lash retention when they recently went down to the Melbourne Beauty Expo.

Here’s a great little vid from renown make up artist Jenny Do showing you how to use it.


Do you know we do threading? Mal and Raman provide threading and it’s available at both salons. Threading is great for those with naturally sensitive skin, or those using retinol or AHA products. Same price as waxing services.
