It’s official, the cold weather has hit Brisbane and if the predictions are anything to go by, it’s here to stay. Although winter in Brisbane is typically beautiful – clear sunny days, beautiful sunsets and the perfect excuse to layer – when it comes to our skincare, it can come with some disadvantages. Dry skin, dehydrated hair and chapped lips can all be unfortunate side effects of the cold season, but don’t worry, that’s where Newmarket Village comes to the rescue.
From luxurious facials and hair makeovers to skincare saviours and style updates, you can find it all at Newmarket Village. So, whether you want to treat someone you love, give your skin a little TLC or just spend the morning pampering yourself, these are the Newmarket Village health and beauty destinations to visit this winter.
For luxurious facials… Ella Baché
Get the skin you’ve been waiting for this winter with a trip to Ella Baché. The team know and understand skin and recognise that every client’s skin is uniquely individual. Their Hydra Cellular Renewal Facial Treatment is an intensely moisturising facial treatment that saturates extremely dry skin with hyaluronic acid to refine and revive your skin. Perfect for winter!
For a hair transformation… Epic Hair Design
The team at Epic Hair Designs say that they ‘are more than just hairdressing’ which is fitting, because they’re a family of 12 of Brisbane’s best hairdressers and they have a reputation for producing beautiful results at an affordable price.

For winter skincare saviours… Australian Skin Clinic
There are many things that can contribute to dry and dull skin: overexposure to the sun, over-cleansing and certain medications to name a few. However, one of the best ways to treat facial dryness is with topical products, which is where Australian Skin Clinics come in. They stock Ultraceuticals, a brand that knows how to maintain a fresh and energised complexion this winter. Try their Ultra Moisturiser Range for visible results when the cold hits and your skin needs saving.
For makeup and health… Discount Drug Store
When it comes to all your health, wellbeing and makeup necessities, there is really only one destination that has everything you need in one convenient location: Discount Drug Store. Not only do they have many health services in-store such as baby nurses, blood glucose testing, asthma management, bowel cancer screening and more, but they are also home to hundreds of vitamins, beauty products, skincare necessities and medicines. So whether you need Vitamin C or new makeup, everything you need is at Discount Drug Store.
For fashionable accessories… Da Rin Optometrist
You know how they say when you feel good on the inside, you look good on the outside? Well, the same can be said for the opposite! A new pair of frames or sunglasses from Da Rin Optometrist can transform your look and update your wardrobe this season! Sometimes the cold and dreary weather can make you feel deflated, but with these Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses, you can go from drab to fab!
For the ultimate male makeover… Col Naylor Barber
Col Naylor Barbers are considered a leader in men’s hairdressing in Queensland and rightfully so. Since the 1950’s they’ve grown to an impressive seven stores in Brisbane alone and have remained true to their noble traditions and modern appeal. A traditional neck shave, blow-dry and hot towel service is included in all their hair cut prices, but the best part? No appointment necessary.
