Sugar's Little Black Book of Secrets: The Best Beauty Hotspots in Sydney

Sugar's Little Black Book of Secrets . . . Sydney

Pop, Fab and I are bringing you the best of the best in food, fashion and beauty that each of our capital cities — Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide — has to offer. First up: Sydney!

HAIR: Wild Life Hair

Putting the Wild into Wild Life is Jayne Wilde, the much-loved and multi-award winning owner of the salon. A regular backstage at Fashion Week, Jayne has amassed over 27 years experience iand has won the prestigious Hair Expo Australian Hairdresser of the Year award in 2011, 2008 and 2004.

Wild Life Hair, 1/20 Alfred St Milson's Point. Ph: 02 9955 4990.

More Sydney hotspots . . .FACIAL: Sharon McGlinchey at MV Organics

With celeb fans such as Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Melissa George and Emma Watson under her belt, you'd be forgiven for thinking that MV Organics founder Sharon McGlinchey probably leaves the skin of us mere mortals in other hands. But think again. Because Sharon is quite possibly the most down-to-earth award-winning facialist that we've ever met. Nicknamed "Magic Hands" by the Beauty Pack, a treatment with Sharon using her self-created, natural products leaves your skin and sense of wellbeing at an all-time high.

MV Radiance Room, Harmony Pharmacy, 912 Military Road, Mosman. Ph: 02 9969 2000.

BROWS: Brows by Steve at Joh Bailey

Honing his expert arch-ery skills at the renowned Shavata Brow Studio in London’s exclusive department store Harrods, Steve soon became the go-to man for wow brows. Since returning to Sydney, he's opened up shop in Joh Bailey's Myer salon, earning a bevy of local fans, including Jade Jagger and Laura Dundovic. An expert at waxing, tweezing and threading, he'll frame your face like no other.

Joh Bailey Salon, Myer Sydney City. Ph: 02 9231 4411.

WAXING: Venustus

One of Australia's most in-demand salons, this family-owned business is great for facials and massages, but we can't go past their waxing. If they have the staff, they have two technicians working on you, making it the speediest session ever. Plus the girls are so efficient that it's as pain-free as possible, and they'll often throw in a freebie head or foot massage. Bliss. Oh and did we mention they're open seven days?

Venustus Bath & Body Lab, 381 Oxford Street, Paddington. Ph: 02 9361 4014.

TAN: Fiftyfour Park Street

The exclusive day spa at Fiftyfour Park Street has been frequented by Nicole Kidman and is one of St Tropez's gold salons. The result is always flawless . . . not an orange heel in sight.

54 Park Street, Sydney: Ph: 02 9282 8999

NAILS: Miss Frou Frou Beauty

Miss Frou Frou is home to two of Australia's top manicurists, Victoria and Rochelle, who amongst them have clocked up quite the A-list regulars. Think Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Hawkins and Toni Collette. They use their own polish range which is every bit as fashion-forward and fabulous as the clientele!

Miss Frou Frou Beauty, 86 William Street, Paddington. Ph: 02 9357 6063.
