I recently had the pleasure of meeting the team behind the Award Winning Hair and Beauty salon Ze Flamant Rose in Darlinghurst, Sydney. I was introduced by a friend and I wanted to see what a Green Lifestyle Award Winning Salon looked and felt like. What makes a sustainable journey interesting and inspiring is the people who support it. Once bitten by the need to protect and nurture the environment there is nothing a person will not do to create the best sustainable practices possible. The team behind this brand are striving to make a difference and clearly they are winning.
French Master Stylists and owners, Emilie and Cyril, have collectively been serving the hairdressing and fashion industry for over 15 years. I experienced one of Emilie’s heavenly facials and a full blown cut and blow wave taking me from women with a bob to short and sassy crop top. I could not have left happier. Recognising in each other a commitment to hairdressing excellence, the pair moved to Sydney in 2011 with the vision to create the finest hair and beauty salon in the Southern Hemisphere. They bring with the French flair and style and you instantly feel that they are totally committed to your experience.

If you’ve never had a facial peel, may we suggest you change that? They can work wonders on mature skin, helping to refine, resurface and rejuvenate it. The result? A smoother, glowing complexion.
bh’s Jackie booked in to try the new organic spa Lactic + Enzyme Peel at Ze Flamant Rose in Surry Hills, Sydney. Read on to find out what she thought of her treatment…
What treatment did you get and where?
An organic spa Lactic + Enzyme Peel at Ze Flamant Rose in Surry Hills, Sydney, with the lovely French salon owner, Emilie.
What did the treatment involve?
My skin was cleansed, toned, exfoliated, peeled, massaged and moisturised, but I was very relaxed, so I might have missed a few steps! I was there for an hour and a half, but it whizzed by in no time and I came out of the salon feeling refreshed and calm, which was lovely on a cold and wintery afternoon.
How did the treatment feel on your skin?
It was a luxurious, gentle and pampering experience. Though the treatment used ‘active’ ingredients, there was no stinging at all – rather, just a light tingling. Emilie used the product range with an amazing touch. It felt as if my skin was getting the nourishment it needed, but very gently. I particularly liked the way she gently used her fingertips to massage and enliven my skin cells.
How was your experience at the salon?
It’s a small salon on a busy Surry Hills street so when you walk in, there is an immediate sense of calm and respite from outside. The room felt warm, personal and private, which I liked, and the treatment rooms are cosy and intimate so you are encouraged to relax and start to unwind. Emilie is a knowledgeable and expert beauty therapist who is also a hairdresser. I loved the facial, but I was also treated to a scalp, neck and shoulder massage at the hairdressing basin, followed by complimentary blow-dry! I walked out feeling all put back together!
What were the results like?
My skin felt incredibly soft and my fine lines were clearly lighter in appearance. I also loved the fact that I walked out with freshly blow-dried hair, rather than the greasy, unkempt hair that often accompanies facials. I loved the products – the texture and fragrance added to the overall luxury of the treatment.
Who would you recommend this treatment for?
For me, facials and treatments of any kind are a welcome break in an otherwise hectic day. My skin benefits for days afterwards, reminding me I should really book in for a facial at least once per month. My fine lines have reduced, my blackheads have cleared, and my skin looks bright and healthy. I’d recommend it to anyone with dry, mature skin who wants less lines, a healthy glow and a fabulous post-facial hairdo!

It was an afternoon of pampering for me on last Saturday when I was invited to Ze Flamant Rose Beauty and Hair Salon in Surry Hills. Actually it’s just around the corner from me so very convenient. I met with Emilie and Cyril, who have collectively been serving the hairdressing & fashion industry for over 15 years.
Cyril offered me a beautiful cup of organic tea and a decadent chocolate truffle, which I enjoyed whilst I sat with Emilie for a consultation on my skin. The salon itself just screams ‘luxury’ it’s beautifully decorated and has two floors and the second story has a veranda overlooking leafy Goulburn St. Clients can sit out here whilst they are waiting for their hair colour to take and enjoy an organic tea or coffee whilst soaking up the Surry Hills atmosphere. Flamingo art decorate the walls and there are some beautiful and unusual pieces to look at, as you would expect with the name ‘flamant’.
The salon itself is very inviting and with two French owners you expect it to be stylish, and there is no lacking in style anywhere. It is no secret that the French are known for style and beauty and Ze Flamant Rose are all about Style yet there is one very big difference; Where possible, they use organic and eco-friendly products, and set new standards of sustainability for the beauty industry.
After my consultation with Emilie it was time for my treatment. I was taken into the treatment room, which had soft relaxing music and had a beautiful smell. I love aromatherapy and I always have beautiful scents in my apartment, it makes me happy.
This was the best facial I’ve ever had for a number of reasons; The organic products used are supplied from a Byron Bay company www.organicspa.com.au and they are incredible. Emilie told me that she would not use any other product. The range is made using the finest certified organic extracts combined with 100% naturally derived ingredients. I had one of the signature facials “Intense anti-ageing treatment” which also included a relaxing hand massage whilst my face mask was processing (or you can choose a scalp massage). I was in heaven and Emilie has an amazing healing ability, I felt totally energised.
Following my facial it was time for a wash and blow-wave upstairs. Again, where possible all products Ze Flamant Rose use are eco-friendly. How much pampering can one woman have in an afternoon? Well at Ze Flamant Rose a lot! This time I had the most amazing and longest scalp massage and hair treatment ever so I got another ‘chill out’ time. After the treatment Emilie styled my hair and somehow magically turned me into very ‘French Chic’ with a curl of a brush and very little product. Even my stylist, Arrnott Olssen, commented on my hair when he saw me the next day giving me the Arnott nod of approval.
I left the salon feeling like a million dollars. I am convinced that the more the world turns organic the better off we all will be and highly recommend Ze Flamant Rose.
