Where to get glammed up in the Valley
Who needs an excuse to indulge in a spot of primping and pampering? Whether you’re scheduling some self-care or planning your party prep, the Valley’s top nail, hair and beauty salons will work their magic from head to toe. Book an appointment with these experts and we guarantee they will have you looking and feeling your absolute best.
Zhuzh your hair
From updos to buzzcuts, let the hair experts transform your locks into a lewk. The stylists at Renzo Salon on Robertson Street pride themselves on their ability to achieve long-lasting colour solutions. Saburi Hair & Beauty on Ann Street is the spot for all your hair colour, extensions and styling needs, while WINNston Hair in Winn Lane specialises in the blonde ‘dos that turn heads. Kiki Hair Brisbane (also on Winn Lane) is the hair extension specialist if you’re keen to transform your look completely. We also love the cut and colour services by Forge Forward owner Amy Crow at her Lost Salon space on Ann Street. Looking for a fresh cut-and-colour? You’re in safe hands at Valley Hair by DJM in California Lane.
For slick styles, book into one of the Valley’s barbershops. Bou’s For Men Barber Shop is open in Valley Metro, offering services for hair, face and lather shaves. Visit The Public Barber, on Brunswick Street, for beard grooming and fresh cuts. Unisex barber Dreamboat on Winn Lane is the go-to for buzzcuts and bold colours.
Bold brows and lovely lashes
A big event calls for perfect brows and lashes – the bigger the better. See natural brow and lash magician Kiyomi at The Brow Bakery in California Lane for lash and brow tints, lash lifts and natural brow shaping. For Bollywood brows, we love the sharp arches from eyebrow threading plus eyelash perms at Shehnaz Beauty Salon in McWhirters Centre.
Nail the look
You will need to book in advance if you want Ariel Morrissey to work her nail magic on you, but you will be so pleased you did. Arial is proud of her salon’s positive vibe and the great connection she has built with her clients. When she opens the month’s bookings on the 15th, she’s usually booked out within an hour. The nail art coming out of her Venom Nail Bar in Bakery Lane is really turning heads. Ariel only uses Apres Gel X extensions and BIAB (builder in a bottle) so your new-look nails will last for party after party.
From statement acrylic and gel nails to au naturel, see the mother-daughter duo at Miss Mekong Nails & Beauty in McWhirters Centre. They’ll also nail your eyelash extensions and tints.
