An alumni of Anthony Nader and Raw Hair, Simon Bright, creative director at this lush Eastern Suburbs salon, describes his approach to hairdressing as “holistic”. His belief in this is so strong that he’s even developed his own range of organic, vegan, botanical-based hair products.

Many modern salons today are uber cool, have clunky acoustics and thumping beats, and see you leaving with great hair, but an even greater headache. There’s none of that here. With its ivy-lined walls, twin Persian cats gracefully idling around, a natural citrus scent permeating the space and serene ambience that immediately grounds and centres your soul, this is a refreshing and welcome step away into serenity plus total tress success.

Bathhouse Newrybar Villa and Wellness Centre +Ageless NAD+ Clinic

21 Old Pacific Highway, Newrybar NSW, 0410 341 131,,
Possibly the newest and the most high-tech wellness centre in the Northern Rivers region, this is a sanctuary not to be missed. Book in to the luxury villa and bliss out for a few days while you enjoy endless treatments, or simply check in as a day guest and make use of the 25m pool, Mosaic Hamman steam room, 12-jet Vichy shower, aqua lumbar massage spa and milanese sauna, after you’ve indulged in a facial, massage or one of leading anti-ageing and wellness expert, Dr Jeremy Cumpston’s healing and rejuvenating treatments.

Cumpston is the first doctor in Australia to be administering the revolutionary NAD+ Co-Enzyme infusion and it’s available by appointment at Newrybar Bathhouse, as well as his other Ageless NAD+ clinics based around Sydney CBD and Eastern suburbs.

“NAD+ is a metabolic co-enzyme that is an essential component of energy production (mitochondrial function),” he explains. “It is also heavily involved in DNA and cell repair; and is essential for maintaining neurotransmitter levels for the proper functioning of the brain. NAD+ is also a great support for liver health, which is imperative for immune function, detoxification and of course, glowing skin.”

Also ask about Dr Cumpston’s new beauty boost treatment, which infuses hyaluronic acid, vital nutrients and vitamins via
hypodermic micro injections using a hand-held device called the beauty boost gun. “The aim is to rejuvenate dry, fatigued and lined skin,” explains Cumpston.
