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 Mina or Beatriz, 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, Beatriz and Mina 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.

Sick of the smudges?

If you are using eye makeup every day or prefer a low fuss beauty regime, an eyeliner tattoo may be for you.

Cosmetic tattooing is a popular beauty secret amongst those in fashion and beauty. A simple search on Instagram for #cosmetictattooing or #eyelinertattoo and it’s quick to see it’s popularity.

Eyeliner tattoo is waterproof, smudge free and low fuss. You can get eyeliner tattoo within the lash line [see image above] for beautiful, natural definition or above the lash line, with or without wings. Best of all the eyeliner will be even. No more wonky wings! You can also get the eyeliner tattoo along the lower eyelid or without.

A qualified and experienced cosmetic tattooist will provide you with a thorough consultation to discuss your suitability and the design of the eyeliner. The eyeliner shape will be drawn on with make up so you can see what the finished result will look like.

Eyeliner is mostly done with a black pigment, which is specially formulated for cosmetic tattooing and will fade after a few years. No body tattooing inks or equipment should ever be used for cosmetic tattooing.

Eyeliner tattoo is semi permanent and will last 2 to 4 years. With numbing cream the treatment is not painful. Most clients say they feel a tickling sensation at the start of the procedure.

An eyeliner tattoo will cost approximately $350.


Here’s a taste of what a Lip Blush cosmetic tattoo can look like. This pretty pink was selected to match our client’s skin tone and has created the effect of naturally fuller lips. A lip blush tattoo is contourless. This means no hard edge or lip liner effect for the ultimate in subtle enhancement. Simply beautiful.


We have 50 free VIP passes for 1 week of unlimited classes at Xtend Barre Parramatta to give away. Xtend Barre is a mix of dance and pilates and will give you an extra boost of energy and strength, as well as toning your body.

The history of eyelash extensions

Have you ever wondered who invented eyelash extensions and when they become fashionable? Eyelash extensions developed on from false lashes, or ‘strip lashes’. False lashes were recorded as first worn by actress Seena Owen in the film Intolerance [pictured above] in 1916 at the film’s director, D.W. Griffith’s, request. These false lashes were made by human hair by hand, woven onto gauze by a wig maker. The wig maker’s name is unknown.

False lashes or Strip Lashes

False lashes were quickly adopted by many women into their make up routines and are still in favour by some today.

It may be no coincidence eyelash extensions gained popularity in Hollywood as a replacement for false lashes at the start of high-definition film and television at the beginning of the 21st century. They also suit an active lifestyle and the fashion around it which is a growing trend this century. Some one mention active wear?

Eyelash extensions are on when you get out of bed, while you are working out, swimming, showering, you name it, at any time of the day. Beauty in 2016 is about naturalness and reducing daily make up routines.

To meet these demands, lash extensions began to appear as a service in beauty salons at the same time, in the beginning of the noughties. It’s hard to find an indisputable source on when and where they were invented; however, most agree they have been around since the mid 1980’s and first appeared in Japan or Korea.

Lash Extensions in Australia

Lash salons and technicians began to emerge in Australia around 2005. There are many more today and many general service beauty salons also include this service as part of their menu. Its popularity continues to increase.

 Celebrities and Eyelash Extensions

Many celebrities have been snapped wearing eyelash extensions off-screen including Julianne Moore, Angelina Jolie, Katy Perry and Gwen Stefani.
