Style Makeover Tips

skincare, hair, nails, brows and eyelashes

Whether you’re worried about regrowth or grown-out acrylics, we’re here to help.

With lockdowns in Australia separating us from our beloved beauty therapists, big questions start to arise.

What on earth do we do with our greys? How can we keep our nails from peeling and breaking and should we attempt an iso haircut?

If anything, the internet has taught us what NOT to do – by providing us with hilarious memes of people who lost their marbles and decided lockdowns were the perfect time to cut bangs.

But what SHOULD we do?

To ease the stress, we decided to consult some of Australia’s leading beauty therapists across a range of disciplines – skincare, hair, nails and brows/eyelashes to answer our questions.
