Henna Brows vs. Tattoo Brows

Henna Brows vs. Tattoo Brows

Esstudio Galleria prides itself on top quality treatments this includes our Henna Brows;

The bespoke eyebrow treatment that is completely personalised to you!

Esstudio Galleria has introduced their new bespoke Henna Brow Treatment – an eyebrow solution completely personalised to you. The new treatment is now offered as a better, semi permanent option than eyebrow tattooing. Henna is the perfect alternative for those who want the bold look with little commitment.

Jacqui Arnold, Co-Founder and Beauty Director of Esstudio Galleria says, “Our bespoke henna eyebrow treatment is so much more than a standard eyebrow wax and tint. We custom-blend colour to suit your brow hair and skin tone and with the precise hair removal it creates brows that complement you and your style personally.”

Both henna and tattoo eyebrow treatments are most suited for those who want to restructure, define, cover or fill over-plucked brows. Both treatments being most popular for those who can no longer gain any natural hair growth, or to those who want to achieve a better bolder brow. The henna brow is the safest way with less commitment that will look just as good, if not better! 

Henna is currently trending for a reason! Many women want the look of full brows that microblading can offer, but don’t want the pricetag or commitment of a full cosmetic procedure. Henna is a beautiful compromise – it creates the illusion of fuller brows by staining the skin, much in the same way microblading creates the appearance of extra brow hair.

Henna Brows:

BEFORE 

AFTER


Henna lasts up to 5 weeks on the hair with 3 weeks wear on the skin giving you an overall look of a tattoo. There are so many options to have with the henna option.  With henna, eyebrows can be as dark or as subtle as requested. Colours are mixed to suit each individual.

Tattoo Brows:

Tattoo eyebrow treatment lasts generally 2 years, depending on your skin type.  Pigment is implanted into the skin, with a fine needle hand-held tool or tattoo machine that creates hair-like strokes to mimic the appearance of a natural looking brow.

“Tattoo brow treatment is not suited to everyone. Many people with oily or dewy skin types won’t have success maintaining the pigment. Once the pigment has been implemented, the colour is harder to reverse. Our new henna brow treatment is the perfect, natural looking brow and the best part is that it is suitable for everyone to try,” says Jacqui.

Is hair Smelting the new Balayage?? ELLE spoke to Aleks from Esstudio Galleria pioneering 2018’s latest colour technique, read up to get down-low. Find ELLE Aus  FB post here. The story also made it to ELLE Netherlands. “We discovered the smelting technique when experimenting with new ways to repair and restore bad colour jobs, fix banding issues and clean up home hair colours gone bad. Smelt is melting down the roots and smudging colours throughout the hair.

As the name suggests, smelting involves smudging and melting colours together to create a blended and seamless finish. Abadia explains, “smelting is all about blending the roots and ends into two colours. Read the full article at the Beauty Crew site here.

The new smelting colouring technique involves lifting the overall colour to the lightest levels of blonde from roots to the ends. This will give hair extra volume, body and create loads of texture with tones and depth of colour shades. This allows us to play with smelting colours from roots to the ends, creating amazing texture, dimension and movement to the hair,” said Aleks. Read full article at Beauty 101

All massages are very individualized treatment and performed on a very high energy level so depending on our own personal wants and needs, it can be very relaxing, soothing or energetic and strong.

Swedish Massage
Swedish oil massage is a relaxation massage involving long, flowing strokes up and down the body. It’s designed to ease tense muscles and calm your mind.

Remedial
When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.

Shiatsu
Shiatsu Massage is a traditional healing art developed in Japan a century ago based on traditional 3000-year-old Chinese medicine. It combines massage, stretching, gentle physical manipulation and pressure along channels called meridians.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is designed to prevent and relieve injuries and conditions that are associated with exercise. It can often be quite strenuous and is meant to relieve and reduce the stress and tension that can build up within the body’s soft tissues while exercising. It can be carried out before, during, or after playing sport or exercising and uses techniques that are designed to increase endurance and performance, to minimize the chances of injury and, if there is an injury, to reduce the recovery time.

Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles. It is used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

Pop in and say hi and check out our new decor. We are growing and giving the studio a make over. The antique barbers chair is making a comeback and we will be creating a new specialized men’s barber section at the front of the studio.

A healthy addition is our new personal tea menu. Everyone knows how we love tea! Jax and Dynae have been tasting and have selected a beautiful range of organic teas for you to choose from.
My current favourite is the caffeine free yogi chai! Delish!

Jax has a new range of beautiful skin care that was developed in a hospital burns unit in Paris. Gernetic was designed to boost the skin’s immunity and ability to regenerate through cellular nutrition. This research forms the basis of all Gernetic products. Gernetic contains amino acids, peptides, proteins, vitamins and trace elements, which have been scientifically formulated to meet the specific nutritional requirements of the cells, leaving the skin healthy and radiant.
Book in for a facial with Jax to experience this beautiful range of products. For the next few weeks 15% off at any time till October 15th. Mention this when making a booking.

Hair Trend alert! Micro foiling is a great option for summer hair, this new take on balayage gives that natural sun-kissed look, creating a softer band line of growth, so you can go further between visits to the salon and spend more time at the beach!

Spring is also a time for new beginnings, so why not a change of colour?? Check out some of our recent press:

No matter your skin tone, there’s a brunette hue out there for you. Aleks Abadia, Co-Founder and Hair Director at Esstudio Galleria explains, “Fair skin will suit slightly warmer tones, while people with a darker complexion will suit ashier tones.” Similarly, your hair type should influence your colour. “Depending on the desired effect, a block colour will be a solid rich tone great for fine hair… and on most people it can bring out your best features: eyes, skin colour. If you have thick hair, a highlighted shade will create dimension and texture,” says Aleks.

“It’s time for hairdressers to rule out the normal request for boring balayage and get a little creative and suggest easy to maintain colours, but allow us to get the mind ticking and get dirty with those colours,” agrees Aleks Abadia of Esstudio Galleria.
