With Summer well and truly here, it’s time to get our skin out and glow on for those long lazy lunches and vibrant summer nights. But we also encourage you to get your glow IN as well as OUT. Here’s how and why…
During the last few decades we’ve been taught to stay out of the sun for fear of causing sun damage to our skin, but did you know that sitting in natural morning sunlight for 5-20 minutes a day is equivalent to a daily dose of Vitamin D?
The sun enhances our immune system, boosts our energy and helps us get a great night’s sleep. When the sun is shining it’s also Mother Nature’s call for us to get some of that feel good chemical serotonin into our body. Sunlight on the inside makes us happy, literally.
But some of us still use the sun to get a suntan; we bake at high noon, covered in oils hoping to get that beautiful natural glow. Of course we end up doing serious damage to our skin. This is why our Goddess of Beauty created… The Spray Tan.
At Elegant Lashes we use Black Magic Tan. It’s an Australian made brand using natural and organic ingredients that will give you a rich, deep tan with no smell, no parabens and is cruelty free. With green and violet-based solutions, you will NEVER go orange. Black Magic Tan uses aloe vera along with additional antioxidants leaving your skin feeling nourished and hydrated.
You will walk out of the salon looking and feeling like you’ve been holidaying in the South of France, floating on a sun lounge while being served cocktails by beautiful cabana boys (or girls) wearing nothing but a smile, and some cloth.
Combining a healthy amount of sunshine, along with a beautiful Black Magic Tan gets your glow inside and out, and will make you the talk of the town!
Have a listen to one of our favourite world experts on Womens Health, Dr Christianne Northrup telling us about the benefits of sunlight.
As you know we are very serious about your long term lash health at Elegant Lashes and this also extends to the long term health of your skin. Sun damage can cause a range of problems that may take decades to appear and can be irreversible. It’s also the number one cause of premature ageing.
Sun damage appears on one side of this truck driver’s face after years of exposure.

Like figure-hugging pants after the Christmas season we have outgrown our salon at Tiffany Plaza and have moved to a wonderful new space just 2 minutes walk from Westfield. We have more rooms, including a customised spray tan room, and a soon to come nail bar.
Thank you to the wonderful design team at FutureFORM Creative and Eastern Suburbs Shopfitters, who also did our Parramatta salon, for the gorgeous new shop. It’s a beautiful space to be in and we have received lots of happy feedback from our clients that have been in since we moved on December 2nd. Come in and experience it for yourself.
We have many wedding clients come to us at Elegant Lashes. Eyelash extensions not only make you look more beautiful on your special day but also last through any tears of happiness that may be shed and throughout your honeymoon.
Our tips for brides to be:
– Get your lash extensions done a day or two before your wedding day. Although extremely unlikely you don’t want to find out you have a glue allergy on your wedding day. It will also give some time for the glue to fully cure before you put make up on, ensuring the eyelash extensions last for as long as possible.
– Most brides choose a Glam or Russian Volume 3D Lash Set in silk or in a premium faux mink. With more lashes than a Luxe Set a Glam Lash Set gives you a full, lush look. It works well against a both a nude eye and lots of colour. Want the best? Choose Russian Volume 3D for full, light, fluffy lashes. Literally hundreds of lash extensions are bonded to your natural lashes.
– If the option is available to you some brides will come in for a test set. If you haven’t had eyelash extensions before or would like to see what a particular style looks like on you this is highly recommended.
Eyelash extensions will not fall out prematurely from swimming so if your honeymoon is on a tropical beach somewhere you have nothing to worry about.
We do free consultations at Elegant Lashes and if you are interested in a sensitivity test we will bond a couple of eyelash extensions on your natural lashes free of charge.
