Save Face And Time, We Found Your Perfect Southside Beauty Hub

The home of beauty

By Astrid Taemets | 14th August 2023

Whether you’re a busy mum running a household, the boss lady of a killer company, or have your hands full with a to-do list the height of Mt Coot-tha, there’s no arguing that making life just that little bit less hectic is a win for the books. 

So, when we discovered West Village’s stunning beauty precinct that includes Salon Lane (a literal hub for all things beauty and wellness), Bobbie Charles Skin & Cosmetic Clinic (specialists in everything from brow treatments to lash extensions, and injectables), Skin Partners (who are at the forefront of medical-grade technology to solve hair, nail, and skin concerns), and the mani/pedi artisans La Diva Nails (who can fill the gap when you need it), we felt the urgent need to share the news. After all, we’re not in the business of gatekeeping. 

Combining all your beauty and wellness needs in the one aesthetically pleasing and convenient location, Salon Lane was purpose-built to be your one-stop beauty hub where you can have it all without having to race around town. A home for hair, beauty, and wellness professionals, the Salon Lane site houses 23 private salon studios, 13 open hair workstations, a nail lounge, and spray tan studio, making your daily life just that much easier. Here, you’ll find Varsana, by Alandra, Ink by Kell, Society Isle Beauty, Salon Callidora, Hair by Elise Anne, Naeco and Dream Skin & Lash – all your beauty needs rolled into one!

Conveniently located on level 1 of Factory 2, this is a luxurious sanctuary with a retreat-style feel where you can sit back, relax, and have all hands on deck, so you can get in, get out, and get on with the rest of your busy schedule, but not before restocking some of your most-needed from Kevin Murphy, Oribe, K18, and Dermalogica from their fully-equipped retail shop. 

Adding to the impressive repertoire of beauty treatments found in this bustling precinct, Bobbie Charles can cater to your every beauty need, big or small. With a genuine passion for all things skin, brows, and lashes, you can stop in for a total overhaul with time to spare. Their mission is to help you feel confident, and with a team of skilled nurses, dermal clinicians, and beauty therapists in-house, a personalised treatment at Bobbie Charles is an experience unto its own. 

And whether you can only spare an hour or have time to get the full mani/pedi treatment, make sure you stop by La Diva Nails. Adding some glossy Big Apple Red or Bubblegum to your nails while you sit and relax in their massage recliners, La Diva Nails specialise in SNS, acrylic, gel, and shellac to help you look polished (pun intended) from fingers to toes. 

Yes, it’s true, West Village truly has it all! Here, your every beauty need is sorted, so you no longer have to stay on top of traffic reports that may hinder getting you from appointment A to B with enough time to spare for a coffee break in between. 

You’ll also find plenty of other necessities here to help you stay fit, healthy, and well balanced, such as a fully-equipped (and beautifully maintained!) Good Life Health Club, Soak Bathhouse, and The Practice dentistry to provide you with a full-fledged prime location precinct that can cater to all your needs inside and out. 

Easy parking, no traffic jams, and less kms on the clock, Salon Lane and West Village’s additional offerings make this a no-brainer for anyone who likes to get the job done efficiently while coming out looking and feeling their absolute best.
