we're turning 10It’s incredible how quickly time goes by when you’re having fun.

Ten years ago, Gabriele established Beauty Sense beauty salon in the heart of Margate, Redcliffe.

We chatted with her about how it feels to reach the 10 year milestone of owning and managing one of the top rated salons in the area.


How does it feel to be celebrating the 10th birthday of Beauty Sense?
I feel very excited and proud to have reached the 10 year milestone. I’m most proud and happy to have established such a loyal clientele who make coming to work such a pleasure. There have been difficult times over the past 10 years where I’ve seen quite a few salons open and close down – I know I wouldn’t be here today without my wonderful clients.

Just for men

Just for menOver the past 10 years, we’ve welcomed more and more men into our beauty salon.

In recognition of this, we have created a new section of our website – Just for men. It includes all of our most popular treatments that have been specifically designed for men.

While men can enjoy any of our facial and pamper package treatments, we know there are differences between male and female needs which is why ‘Just for men’ has been created.

Did you know men’s skin is up to 70% oilier than women’s skin due to testosterone production? The Men’s essential therapy facial washes away excessive dirt and oil, the main cause of breakouts and blackheads, and exfoliates to unclog pores. It also focuses on other male needs, such as razor burn or roughened skin from spending time outdoors.

Other popular treatments include manicures, waxing, massages and pamper packages which combine massage and facial treatments.

At Beauty Sense salon, we provide treatments that have been engineered for male skin. Different products and essential oils with more masculine scents are used during these treatments.

Our private and relaxing salon is a place where men can unwind while being rejuvenated.

Call us on 3284 2218 or visit our beauty salon in Margate, Redcliffe to book your next appointment.
