Your face is the image of yourself you first present to the outside world. Healthy, glowing skin shows everybody you encounter that you look after yourself and are ready to take on any challenge. Even just for yourself, knowing you have a fully cleansed face, with clean pores and exfoliated skin can empower you. Giving you the confidence to tackle your day and anything that comes your way.
The Beauty & Brow Parlour offers you four different levels of facial treatment:
- Mini Facial
- Deluxe Facial
- Deep Cleansing Facial
- Rejuvenating Facial
Do I Need A Facial?
Facial treatments are not just for those of us with visible concerns. While there are many benefits for chronic acne and pimple sufferers, a deep cleanse can be just as useful for someone with seemingly blemish-free skin. It can often be hard to see just how much dirt and grime build up on our skin, increasing the chance of blocked pores, blackheads and other dermatological conditions. The exfoliation and deep cleansing of a facial treatment allows all of this matter to be removed by a professional technician, leaving your skin primed for hydration and rejuvenation.
Tailoring Your Facial To You
Your facial treatment should work for your needs. If you have a particular concern about an area or problem you want to address, it’s important you communicate that to your beauty technician. Getting the most out of a facial often requires a tailored approach and, at The Beauty & Brow Parlour, we’re always happy to accommodate our customers’ needs. Your technician will assess your skin and needs and walk you through the best options for you
Facial Cleansing On A Regular Basis
Facial treatments should occur every four to six weeks. This amount of time gives your skin the opportunity to reap the full benefits of your treatment without accumulating an excessive amount of build up. Maintaining a regular routine is no different to any other type of self-care and will achieve the best results for you. If you’re unable to make appointments regularly, changing seasons can be a good opportunity to come in for a facial cleanse. The changes in weather and humidity can dehydrate your skin and cause a more wrinkled and unhealthy appearance.
Mental Benefits of Facial Care
A facial treatment is a relaxing experience. A painless procedure, some people do report a small amount of discomfort – not dissimilar to a massage. Through all the cleansing stages, you’ll be able to de-stress and unwind, knowing that your skin is receiving a deep cleanse. Much like a massage, all you’re required to do is lay back and relax. At the hands of one of our skilled technicians, you’ll finish your facial feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to face the world – knowing your skin looks as good as it feels.

Waxing is a very effective method of hair removal. Quicker and more efficient than shaving, waxing has been an essential beauty technique used for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all underwent some sort of waxing hair removal service in order to achieve their desired aesthetic. Some historians even report cavemen went to great lengths to remove their body hair – albeit for survival purposes not beauty!
It wasn’t until the 1960s that we saw the hair removal technique start to resemble what we know today. Take-home wax strips and salon waxing became a popular beauty technique to achieve silky smooth legs and arms.
Today, we wax for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s comfort, appearance or any other reason, waxing offers an easy alternative to shaving and often helps with common issues like razor burn and ingrown hairs. Here at The Beauty & Brow Parlour we know that waxing is an essential beauty service and offer a range of waxing options.
Waxing Hair Removal Services At The Beauty & Brow Parlour
Our services include:
- Eyebrow Waxing
- Underarm Waxing
- Arm Waxing (Half & Full)
- Stomach Area Waxing
- Back Waxing (Half & Full)
- Leg Waxing (Half & Full)
- Bikini Line Waxing
- Brazilian Waxing
How To Prepare For Waxing
Waxing can be a sensitive issue in more than one sense of the word. Eyebrow waxing, our arms, legs and most other areas are relatively easy to endure, but when it comes to areas like our bikini line it’s perfectly normal to feel hesitation. The Beauty & Brow technicians are all qualified professionals that are there to make your experience as easy and pleasant as possible. Trusting in the skilled services of our technicians can help put your mind at ease.
In terms of skin preparation, it depends on the area. Generally, your hair should be at least a quarter of an inch long before your appointment. Waxing directly after a razor shave will not work. The wax requires enough hair on your skin to firmly grip onto in order to properly remove the entire hair – root and all – from the follicle.
Some customers who are particularly sensitive to waxing choose to employ the use of an over-the-counter pain reliever before visiting our salon. A mild angelisic will usually help you through the process if you find it a little too difficult.
It’s also important to make sure the area has no creams or lotions applied to it before your wax. This can make your skin too slippery and not allow the wax to adhere properly.
Caring For Your Skin After A Waxing
Looking after your skin post-wax is an important step. To reduce the chance of any issues, The Beauty and Brow Parlour suggests avoiding very hot showers and baths during the 24 hour period after your treatment. Additionally, wearing tight clothes, intense exercise and touching the area should be avoided directly after waxing. Cold compresses can be used to soothe the area and over-the-counter antiseptic creams can be applied to particularly inflamed areas.
The Beauty & Brow Parlour are the experts in all wax hair removal services. Whether it’s eyebrow waxing or brazilians, we’ve got you covered. Locate your nearest parlour today to book in for a wax!

The Benefits of Facial Beauty Treatments
As clean as you might think your face is, you’d be surprised by the amount of dirt that can build up without regular attention. Pollution in the air, our sweat, dirt, grime and dead skin cells accumulate over time, leaving us in a situation that’s very difficult to remedy at home – by ourselves. Cheap at-home beauty treatments often don’t quite cut it when it comes to receiving the full benefits of a facial.
An experienced beauty technician, like our team of friendly and fully qualified staff at The Beauty & Brow Parlour, will give your face a deep cleanse. Rejuvenating your skin, with noticeable improvements in look and feel. A Mini Facial treatment doesn’t just clean your
skin, it also helps with cell turnover, encouraging the growth of new, healthy cells. Facials can improve elasticity, tone and a whole range of conditions like:
- Helping you relax and de-stress.
- Promoting blood circulation around your face to help slow down the ageing process.
- Detoxing your skin.
- Helping prevent and treat acne, pimples, blackheads and blocked pores.
- Tightening your skin.
- Aiding with under eye bags and dark circles.

A lash lift is essentially a perm for your eyebrows. An alternative to treatments like permanent eyelash extensions, a lash lift gives you a natural, lasting look. The lift works by applying a curling serum to your eyebrows while a mini-curling rod shapes your eyelashes, giving them the look you desire.
Our eyelashes all have a natural look. Unique to us, they’re not always the shape or length we desire. A curled, lifted eyelash gives you a more inviting and finished look. A low maintenance solution, lash lifts save you the time taken to normally apply mascara every day, giving you a long lasting, cost-effective beauty solution.
How Does a Lash Lift Work?
The special serum that’s applied to your eyelashes acts to break down the protein fibres in your hair. This makes the lashes malleable and allows the technician to shape them to your desired style.
Once formed around the appropriately sized rod, they are set with a finishing serum. This mixture restores and conditions the lash, allowing it to set into its new form. A final coat of serum is then applied to protect the lashes and help the shape last for as long as possible.
How Long Does a Lash Lift Take?
The process begins with cleansing the area after an initial, brief consultation. After that the curling procedure will begin. The whole process is usually completed in about 45 minutes under normal circumstances. This is an incredibly short amount of time in comparison to the accumulated hours you’ll save each morning applying mascara. Giving you a more natural look that’s easy to maintain.
How Long Does a Lash Lift Last?
This will largely depend on what makeup products you use and how quickly your lashes grow. Typically, a lash lift will last for around 6 weeks. In order to get the most out of your lift, you should make sure that no makeup or water comes into contact with your lashes for the first 24 hour period. This will allow them to better set and increase the lifespan of the lift.
Can I Still Use Makeup On My Eyelashes?
Yes. After the first 24-48 hours period you can use mascara on your lashes. It is recommended, however, that you should not use waterproof mascara on your lashes following this procedure. This type of mascara can act to dehydrate your lashes and lose your curl. Your technician will be able to walk you through the proper post-procedure care for your lashes and suitable products to use.
Will A Lash Lift Damage My Eyebrows?
No, a lash lift is a relatively safe procedure. As long as it’s performed by a qualified professional you have nothing to worry about.

With the thin eyebrow trend of the 2000’s looking like a speck in our collective rear-view mirror, the focus is now on definition and volume. These days it’s all about the bushy brow. A thick and luscious line on your face that accentuates your facial features. But, just as choosing the right hairstyle is important for your face, choosing the right eyebrow shape can drastically change the way you look.
What Is My Face Shape?
The first step in picking the right eyebrows for your face shape is determining the shape itself. Most people will know their general shape, with it being fairly obvious from a quick inspection in the mirror. However, some of us have more complex facial structures that are harder to clearly classify. The shape of your face can generally be classed into one of the following formations. Each shape has their own characteristics, making it easy for you to identify which one most resembles yours.
You have widely spaced cheeks and your face appears to be the same length horizontally as vertically.
- Elongated (Oval)
Your face’s length is longer than its width. Sometimes with a more pronounced forehead.
- Heart Shaped
Your face tapers down to a sharper chin, with your overall length longer than its width.
You have a prominent jawline, giving your face a square, angular look.
- Diamond Shaped
You have a smaller forehead and your face appears widest at the eyes or temples.
What Eyebrows Work With What Shape?
It will always depend on personal preference when it comes to your brows. You know what works best and you’re the one that has to look at it every day! However, The Beauty & Brow Parlour offers you some styling advice that works as a general rule of thumb. The following are recommended eyebrow shapes:
- Eyebrows For Round Faces
A full brow with a sharp, medium arch.
- Eyebrows For Elongated Faces
A straighter, thinner brow.
- Eyebrows For Heart Shaped Faces
A fuller brow with a softer, medium arch.
- Eyebrows For Square Faces
A high arch with a moderately thick brow.
- Eyebrows For Diamond Shaped Faces
A curved brow with a medium thickness.
Brow Shaping Methods
When it comes to shaping your brows there are really only two choices. Brow threading or eyebrow waxing. Most of us already have a preference, becoming accustomed to one over the other. Each method of beauty treatment has its benefits and drawbacks. Eyebrow threading allows for a more precise and detailed finish. The unique twisting motion results in lines of hair removed instantly, giving you more control over the shape. Eyebrow threading is less painful than waxing and generally suited to people who may experience sensitive skin and other dermatological issues.
Eyebrow waxing is the other option. Comfort levels vary for the individual, with some people claiming waxing even hurts less than brow threading. Waxing can offer longer lasting shaping, as the hair that grows back will usually be finer and softer. Allowing you to maintain your overall shape for longer periods of time.
Your Dream Eyebrows At The Beauty & Brow Parlour
Whatever shape you want your brows to be, we can help! The Beauty & Brow Parlour offers you eyebrow threading, waxing, tinting and many other beauty services at affordable prices. We deliver the highest quality of customer service. You leave with perfect brows and a smile at our beauty parlours.
Ageing is inevitable. As much as we’d all like to remain forever young, both on the outside and inside, our skin ageing is simply a natural part of life we have to deal with. There are surgical options for facial rejuvenation at our disposal. Many people choose to undergo these permanent procedures in order to maintain a taut brow or sagless chin. However, most of us just want a non-invasive skin treatment to make our skin look and feel younger and healthier.
Why Does Our Skin Age?
Skin ageing is caused by a combination of different internal and external factors. Our skin consists of two layers. The outer layer, called the epidermis, is our protective layer. The largest organ in our body, our epidermis protects us from harsh environmental elements like UV sunlight and different chemical and bacterials compounds we come into contact with.
The layer underneath this is called the dermis. This sub-layer contains the proteins and collagen that give our skin its elastic, youthful properties. The cellular formation of the dermis layer is the key to its strength. As we get older, this structure gradually loses its integrity. The once tightly interconnected proteins start to move away from each other and cause the saggy and loose skin we’re all familiar with.
Body Fat And Our Skin
You may have noticed that areas in which you’ve lost a considerable amount of fat can sometimes be left saggy too. This is because our body fat plays a large role in how our skin looks. As fat is deposited onto our body, the skin around it stretches to accommodate for the extra mass. When the fat layer underneath our skin then begins to recede, there is no longer anything to plump out or fill that area, causing a visible sag in the excess skin.
Common Causes of Skin Damage
Skin sagging is only part of what gives our skin an aged appearance. There are many other significant causes for skin ageing, such as:
It’s recommended that we drink at least 8 glasses of water (or around 2 litres) a day. Staying hydrated will allow the cells within your skin to absorb the water molecules, filling them up and plumping up your skin’s appearance.
Just like water, the food you eat affects your skin’s health. Eating a diet that’s high in salts can dehydrate your skin and have severe impacts on your overall health. Making sure you’re getting the required vitamins and minerals from your daily fruit and vegetable doses will always aid in your skin’s recovery process and general health.
- The Sun
While Vitamin D is good for our skin, and the Sun is a great way to get it – too much exposure will have negative effects. In Australia, our position means we’re particularly susceptible to the Sun’s ultraviolet radiation. Too much time in direct sunlight can fry our skin, damaging it permanently and increasing your risk of skin cancers.
Anti Ageing Skin Treatments
While there are some things that are out of our control, there are easy steps we can follow in order to mitigate these risks to our skin’s health. Moisturising, staying out of the sun and maintaining a healthy diet are essential for your skin’s health. It’s important, also, that we give our skin the attention it deserves. The Beauty and Brow Parlour offers you a range of facial treatments and skin treatments. An Affordable beauty salon, we offer services from pigmentation removal to our anti-ageing treatments – we’ll give your skin the helping hand it needs to look and feel as healthy as it can.
Dry skin is a common complaint among the customers of The Beauty and Brow Parlour. There are multiple possible causes for this condition. Some that can be managed at home with small lifestyle changes and some that require professional intervention.
What Causes It
Simply put, a lack of moisture. Skin that’s not hydrated enough will appear dry, flakey and can be prone to irritation. The skin can be rough and patchy and, in severe cases, may even bleed.
If your dry skin is chronic and severe in nature, medical attention may be necessary.
Certain soaps – Some soaps and body washes can be the cause of this issue. These soaps are engineered to keep us clean by removing dirt and oils but sometimes they do too good a job. Removing the essential oils from our skin and leaving us dry and flakey.
Genetics – Studies show that you have a higher likelihood of getting dry skin if your parents have this condition. Our genes determine a lot about our physical traits and our skin is no different.
Diet – Certain foods like tomatoes and citrus fruits have been shown to increase the chance of dry skin. A diet rich in bad fats and refined sugar can contribute to many skin conditions. Looking after your insides will always have a positive effect on your outsides. Alternatively, foods rich in vitamins and healthy fats can be useful in rejuvenating the oils in your skin. These include fish, avocados and tree nuts.
Hot showers – Regular very hot showers can damage the skin. Effecting the keratin protein inside on your skin cells.
Age – Naturally, as we age our skin is going to undergo changes. With years of exposure to the elements and various other factors, our skin will, unavoidably, begin to show signs of wear.
Methods of Care
There are steps you can take in order to mitigate this damage and care for conditions like dry skin. Regular moisturising and using suitable products are easy and affordable options. If you live in a particularly dry environment the use of a humidifier can be a great help.

The latest TikTok trend has everyone brushing through their eyebrows, showing off thick, luscious, dark, brow hairs. It’s interesting to see how brows make such a big difference and how much we care about them.
Eyebrows go in and out of style. Take the early 2000s eyebrows for example, the thinner they were, the trendier! People were plucking out all their eyebrow hairs, and preferring to draw lines, to substitute for their natural brows.
However recent eyebrow trends have come to appreciate thicker, fuller eyebrows and everyone is striving for that strong brow game.
But why do we even care so much about our brows?
Well, not only do eyebrows frame your entire face and are maintained for beauty purposes, but they also physically there to keep our eyes clean and clear. They move wetness from sweat and rain away from our eyes so we can maintain our sight. They also assist us daily by aiding in our communication and are important for micro-expression.
The brow industry, as you may already know, is extensive. People care a lot about their brows as it helps sculpt and define a face.
However, for many, maintaining eyebrows can seem like a trying task as there are so many ways to do it! It is important to keep in mind, though, that everyone’s brows are unique and we all have our own ways to tame them. Plus, we need to remind ourselves of the eyebrow mantra – “eyebrows are sisters, not twins”
So let’s get into some common at-home methods for brow maintaining:
- Highlighting above the brow bone
- Concealing eyebrow hairs with concealer
- Filing in brows with brow pencil
And, some other procedures include:
- Brow extensions
- Brow laminating
But why do we even need to care about the shape of our brows?
Well, brow shaping can help you
- Look younger
- Look fresher and more awake
- Enhance your beauty, especially the eyes
- Alter your face shape
- Assist in expression
- And balance the face
Overall, having shaped and maintained brows can help you look more put together and give the impression of keeping yourself in good shape. This not only has positive implications within friends and networks, but also allows your own confidence to be boosted!
