Tips for trackside fashion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - HOT PROPERTY -

WITH the rac­ing car­ni­val sea­son upon us, many women are look­ing to en­list some pro­fes­sional help to spice up their look.

Di­vine Beauty owner Vicki Collinson said the days lead­ing up to Cairns Amateurs was al­ways a busy pe­riod for the sa­lon.

“We do try to get clients to book in well in ad­vance for that week,” she said.

“Ev­ery­one seems to have their fin­gers and toes done and also spray tans, those three are the most pop­u­lar lead­ing up to Amateurs.”

Ms Collinson said a de-stressing mas­sage or an­ti­ag­ing fa­cial were the most pop­u­lar treat­ments among her fe­male clients.

“It’s about what they can’t do at home and also for re­lax­ation be­cause ev­ery­one is so stressed,” she said.

“The anti-age­ing fa­cial is pop­u­lar be­cause ev­ery­one is concerned with sun dam­age, fine lines and wrin­kles up here.” Only about 10 per cent of her clien­tele are men. “I don’t think men are ed­u­cated enough up here that they can or maybe they’re not aware the treat­ments are for them as well,” she said.

“Most men are go­ing to have a fa­cial or a mas­sage, they don’t dare to try a salt scrub or body wrap and they’re not so much into the wax­ing.”

Di­vine Beauty is lo­cated at John­stone Rd, Moss­man. The sa­lon of­fers a range of beauty treat­ments in­clud­ing fa­cials, wax­ing, spray tan­ning, tint­ing, mas­sage, man­i­cures and pedi­cures.
