Hygiene Standards

Hygiene Standards

Superior hygiene practices are part of our daily processes, but what exactly does this mean? We don’t often let you know to what extent we go to to keep our salon as clean & healthy as possible for our clients & staff, so here are a few insights into our hygiene practices….

We take hygiene extremely seriously & ensure we all follow numerous cleaning steps each & every day:

* Triple sterilisation of our manicure & pedicure tools after every treatment
We DO NOT recycle our wax!
Our laundry/linen (treatment room bed sheets, pillow cases, blankets, towels etc) are all hospital grade cleaned (cleaned by the same company who washes the hospital linen)
Our CleanSpa Pedicure Chairs enable us deliver the most hygienic pedicures possible, combining MagnaCleanse Technology, the ‘true’ pipeless magnetic jet, with disposable CleanSpa Liners (which are recyclable)
We use hospital grade cleaners for our surfaces, floors, toilets, equipment etc
Our staff ensure proper hand washing and sanitising before & after each & every treatment
* Our staff have rubber gloves & masks readily available to wear for any treatment upon clients request
* We have hand sanitiser in each treatment room & at reception
* We keep up to date with Ministry of Health guidelines, recommendations & news to ensure we are following the correct practices around hygiene & bugs.

We are so proud of our beautiful, state of the art salon and the high standard of service we provide, so if you would love enjoy a treatment with our expertly trained beauty therapists in our fresh, relaxed, serene salon book an appointment at a time and day that suits you online now by clicking HERE.



LASHES, LASHES, LASHES! What an amazing couple of days our lovely Brooke has had learning all about how to create stunning, luscious lashes! 

Recently Brooke had the pleasure of doing training with the wonderful Rhozie from House of Lashes Australia where she learnt different methods for creating MEGA VOLUME FANS! These gorgeous fans range anywhere from 10-23 lash extensions carefully crafted by hand into a little fan and applied to one natural lash. The lashes are super super fine and only weigh 0.03 of a gram, which are almost weightless and do not cause any damage to the natural lashes! Brooke also learnt the ever so popular styling of Kim Kardashian lashes, as well as which styles are best suited to certain eye shapes.

The very next day Brooke caught the 6.00am flight to Auckland for more training at Cerise Lash Boutique with another incredibly talented lash artist and trainer, Natasha Gallier from Perth. So far in her young career Natasha has 32 awards and still counting! Her course was specifically to teach participants more about competing and what judges are looking for in a perfect set of russian volume lashes, as well as what things points are deducted for. She also touched on eye styling and mapping, how important it is to be organised and the risks involved with allergic reactions.

Both Trainers were able to share their helpful tips and tricks with Brooke now feeling super confident and motivated to get better at her lash craft and hopefully compete in live comps next year, or the following! Watch this space!✌🏻
