CORCORZ HAIR

Owner Ca­role Had­dad tames the tresses of many of Bris­bane’s TV pre­sen­ters and vis­it­ing VIPs, as well as loyal cus­tomers who are ad­dicted to her unique blow-dry­ing tech­nique. Start­ing with soak­ing­wet hair, she uses only brushes, a hair-dryer and sheer strength to stretch locks un­til they’re styled to per­fec­tion. With lit­tle prod­uct and no styling tools, her work stays in place for days sans hair straight­ener, which is why many well-coif­fured clients at Corcorz Hair (corcorz.com) have a stand­ing weekly ap­point­ment.

Best post-flight treat­ment STEPHANIES SPA RE­TREAT

Celebri­ties such as Ni­cole Richie and Me­gan Gale have melted away jet lag in the Opal Ra­sul Steam Tem­ple, the Turk­ish-style, mo­saic-walled steam room at Stephanies Spa Re­treat (stephanies spare­treat. com.au) at Sof­i­tel Bris­bane Cen­tral ho­tel. Af­ter ap­ply­ing the ther­a­peu­tic mud mask all over your body, you sim­ply lie back and en­joy the steam and view of the ceil­ing, which glim­mers with twin­kling lights timed to mu­sic. When soft mist rains from above, it’s time to gen­tly shower off the mud. Bliss!

Best fa­cial WATERLILY

Bris­bane-based botan­i­cal-skin­care com­pany Waterlily (wa­terlilyskin bodyspa.com.au) of­fers anti-age­ing and pep­tide-packed fa­cials at the back of its con­cept store on James Street in For­ti­tude Val­ley. Co­cooned in the softly lit and heav­enly scented space, you’ll ex­pe­ri­ence po­tent treat­ments unique to the sa­lon, with fruit en­zymes and phy­tonu­tri­ents de­vel­oped on site us­ing nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents such as berries, ap­ples, wine and lo­cal honey.

Best brows AMY JEAN EYE COUTURE

Delta Goodrem and Dan­nii Minogue both turn to Amy Jean sa­lons (amyjean.com.au) for their im­mac­u­late arches. Fol­low their lead and make an ap­point­ment at this glossy em­po­rium of all

Best al­ter­ations JACKSON ZHU

When David Jones, Max Mara and Carla Zam­patti staff need some­thing ad­justed, they turn to mir­a­cle worker Jackson Zhu (jack­sonzhude­sign.com.au) on Ed­ward Street. From wed­ding dresses to suit jack­ets, noth­ing is be­yond sal­vaging with Zhu’s magic nee­dle and thread.
