Who is your favourite colourist?

My favourite colourist is Jaye Edwards, owner of Edwards and Co. in Surry Hills. The salon is home to Sydney’s most innovative and fashion-forward stylists, makeup artists and manicurists. The space is raw and minimal, discreetly located in the suburb’s backstreets.

Where do you go for a blow dry?

My favourite spot for a blowdry is Joh Bailey in Double Bay. Their experienced stylists nail the perfect bouncy blowdry, which is the ultimate party look. When I want a naturally tousled beach style, I head to Hair Cartel at Bondi Beach – they have mastered effortless Bondi style.

And how about a manicure?

The Nail Lab is Sydney’s manicure experts. From original nail art, to the most polished pedicures, The Nail Lab offers the best in both execution and experience. Their in-house nail polish is available in a rainbow of different colours, and the luxurious facilities include your own foot spa.

The best masseuse in Sydney?

When I feel like an ultra luxurious experience I go to Polished on Queen Street, Woollahra. Otherwise Alkaline Spa in Potts Point is a great spot for massage therapies. Both offer a lush, tranquil experience, which will leave you feeling re-energized and relaxed.

Where do you go for a spray tan?

Noire Studio in Darlinghurst are known for their makeup services, and their spray tans are a well-kept secret.

And for a wax?

Wax & Polish boast more than 25 years in the business, so you can guarantee a smooth and virtually pain-free experience.

Who do you trust with your brows?

Kristin Fisher Brows in Paddington. Kristin Fisher is brow stylist to the stars and is responsible for some amazing Cara Delevingne-style brows. Appointments are limited due to their high demand.

The ultimate day spa?

Fifty Four Park Street is a little slice of heaven located in Sydney’s CBD. Escape the daily grind at this state-of-the-art beauty and health institution. If you are looking for a more local day-spa experience, Alkaline Day Spa & Clinic in Potts Point will also have you covered from head to toe.

Lastly, who does the best lashes? 

Joh Bailey has been renowned as a premium hairdresser for years, but you may not know that they also offer premium beauty services such as amazing lash extensions.
