I really should not have paid for a complete bad service , this is a beauty and salon he has been to 9 times previously lost for words
Essential Beauty Rouse Hill are completely unprofessional, rude, highly offensive, inconsiderate and I’m sickened that they work in the beauty industry. If I could give a 0 star rating I would. Don’t do it to yourself, save your time and money and go elsewhere.
Lovely, caring and knowledgeable staff
I just had my tragus and helix done by Maria at Midland gate Essential Beauty and she's great. She also did my nostril piercing around the end of 2022 and she couldn't have made me feel more comfortable in her hands.
I’ve never used this place and the girl who waxed me was lovely and very professional however, I think my wax could of been waxed a little better. I was plucking out hairs still. Price was reasonable though.
Had a Brazilian wax with Tenika…. Very professional, on time and efficient. Will definitely ask for her next time…
I had 4 skull earrings fitted in my ears
The next day one had fallen off and was lost the next day after that another skull fell off and then the third was missing. I now have only one remaining. I spent 140 dollars on them and are now without earrings.
Can’t have been screwed in correctly
Loved the lady who did my belly piercing, very calm and was way less pain than expected. My piercer was Raffaela. Highly recommend her.
Septum piercing (Midland)
The experience is very good care and understanding team, although the prices aren't clear when it comes to online booking as the septum ring wasn't included which was upsetting and put me out of pocket. Besides the excessive money the experience was good I think my piercing came to a total of $180 with titanium. In my opinion if I knew this was the price before I booking. I would of gone somewhere else as i'm tight in pocket.
Appalling service DO NOT take your babies there
Disgusting service and attitude by lady at the desk. Ran 9 mins late maybe 9.5 to an appointment and put over the coals. Was expected to wake baby up to come back when it suited staff. Then told they were too emotional to pierce babies ears so would need to wait for another day for a different a therapist.
Regarding your response….. if you think questioning why I couldn’t have my appointment is intimidation you shouldn’t be in business. If you are unable to cater for small babies needs then you should reconsider working with children. If your... Read morestaff are unable to regulate their emotions then they shouldn’t be working with children! Sorry but when you are running late that’s ok but heaven forbid a client is late. Appalling response and an appalling business model! Oh and regarding my appointment for tomorrow, I had already booked elsewhere so didn’t need your appointment. I found a company who is understanding of babies needs and routines and not a business run by immature children
Beware of price changes and aggressive sales tactics
Please be careful when booking in a service at Essential Beauty Greensborough.
This place gets 1 star because the waxing service itself was quite good. I was happy and ready to come back regularly for waxing.
During the waxing, Lea asked if she could reccomend me some face products and I said OK.
After the waxing she showed me four or so products she had lined up on the counter and began writing on the boxes about when they should be used. At no point had I been advised on price or even asked if I wanted to buy any of the products.
I was th... Read moreen advised my $49 wax was going to be charged at $65 as it was my first time. At no point during or before the wax was I advised of this increase in cost. There was no indictation on the website when booking that the price of $49 could increase in price.
Have been a customer at Essential Beauty Southlands for a while now and it’s always been fantastic service. Today I called ahead to let them know I was going to be literally 5 minutes late. I was told this was ok. Got there and was told my appointment had “disappeared” and I would have to reschedule. Needless to say I
Did not reschedule and I will not be back ever.
Very unfriendly staff at Ocean key's
Had my daughters ears done in Joondalup and the staff were so friendly and I was so happy with them. Today I went to enquire about my daughters ear that got infected at the ocean keys shop. I just wanted to know if they have clear earing and the woman at the desk didnt smile or properly look at me while i was talking and she completely jumped on the defence as if it not her fault and I need to go back too Joondalup. In no way was I insinuating they did anything wrong. Just so unfriendly and I think it was the same woman i delt with the first time when I enquired about piercing my daughters ears in the first place and decided to go to Joondalup.
I have written and submitted to the contact us form twice to no avail, wrote on Facebook page with it still pending after 5 days.So now I'm posting my disgusting experience on here.
I was writing to have some contact regarding the absolute appalling service I received last Sunday at the Clarkson store in WA.
I attended the store at 2.35 pm due to my nose piercing that was replaced 3 months ago had broken.
It was apparent right from the beginning that it was not going to be resolved from the doors already half closed and the staff member gla... Read morering at me as I walked past her and what I believed to be a friend talking and was ignored. Once she finally decided to leave her conversation at just stood behind the counter glaring at me, I asked her about the warranty with 9ct gold jewellery as mine had broken and from someone who has worn gold all their life I found it unexceptable. With a blank look all I got was to be told there's no warranty and they are closed and I would have to come back.It was NOT 3pm at this point. I kindly explained that I work all week and don't get back to the area until after 6 every night! With that she said I have to buy yet another one and replace it myself because they are closed! I told her that I wasn't happy with that because 9ct should last longer than that and I can show her my receipt. Now I have to go with a broken nose ring all week because if it comes out I will then have to pay for another piercing and ring which is not right. I got the response well you should of rang when it happened in which I replied oh really you were going to answer my call at 9.30 at night?
devastated teenager - eye brow wax
My daughter attended Essential Beauty Innaloo to have an eyebrow wax two days before her year 12 ball. [Name Removed] left her with reddened, blistered eyelids, that I am concerned will be very swollen by Friday. She was given gel to use and given 10% off however this does not cover the anxiety and pain that my teenage daughter is going through just before her ball evening. So disappointed and my daughter is devastated.

What have reviewers had to say about Essential Beauty?
For the most part, reviewers found that the staff at Essential Beauty were warm, welcoming, and highly professional. Most reviewers said that the beauty services they received were carried out well and efficiently - citing that there was a relatively minimal amount of pain (for those who visited a salon for a wax).
Reviewers appreciated the high level of privacy in the salon itself and the attention to detail of the beauty therapists. Although bookings are recommended (particularly if you’re short on time), reviewers said that staff were usually accommodating to walk-in appointments.
Among the negative reviews for Essential Beauty, most were to do with the franchise’s piercing services, with many reviewers citing that their piercings were rushed, and as a result in some cases, very uneven.
Something to consider:
Reviews for Essential Beauty have mostly been positive, however you should take into consideration that it is a franchise with different staff across different locations. Because of this, your experience may vary depending on the salon you visit.
