1. Endota Spa
Various Melbourne Locations
Yes, I know, a classic that you are all very well aware of. Some may say it’s a cult-fave as each client just keeps going back. With locations dotted all over Melbourne, there will be a salon right near you. From massages, to microdermabrasion, they’ve got you covered. Our personal favourite, you may ask? The Organic Facial - here to pick your skin up and bounce back into shape before you know it.
2. Willow Urban Retreat
Looking for something a little holistic? Tread no further. This retreat will keep you saying 'ohmm' well and truly after your treatment of choice. With an on-site café run by their nutritionist and their stunning luxe spaces, you could spend an easy day there resetting yourself for the new week. Weekend well spent, I’d say.
3. Jacqueline Evans Skin Care
"First do no harm, heal with the power of nature, identify and treat the cause, heal the whole person, physician as the teacher, prevention is the best cure" - to be honest with you, nough said.
With no nasties, they treat all beauty concerns from the inside out with a qualified naturopath and clinical nutritionist. Their programs are modern-science formulated, sustainable, cruelty free and are designed to get some serious results. This is where our largest organ came to be transformed, whist the rest of us got an internal makeover.
4. Missy Lui
After heading out from Willow Urban retreat, head down the road to the most wholesome, scandi-styled nail bar we could get our ratty hands on. Their philosophy though? Healthy hands. Fantastic service, classical manicures using natural products, and the least amount of nasty toxins they can - even better, they stock local nail polish brands like Kester Black.
5. Belinda Hughes Skin Clinic
The treasure-trove of all things beauty, Belinda-Hughes is Australia's leading natural beauty therapist. From eminence fire and ice detox peels, to lash lifts and tints to blackhead lifting facials, this is where we came for our face to be reborn. There is no treatment they truly do not do.
6. Little Company
Just as the name describes, the Little Company is an intimate beauty salon that incorporates the notion of the inside out. Whether that’s through their cabin-like interiors with added greenery, to their small, extremely knowledgeable team, there will be a little nature and a whole-lot of love.
Sometimes, you just need a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. They believe, with a little bit of education, guidance and 'a little bit of' treatment of choice, you'll be back on track in no time. From "a little bit of prep" to "a whole lot of everything", to LED Light Therapy rooms to anti-ageing treatments, check out this mini Melbourne wilderness, with no trace of cabin fever.
