5 Queen Street, Chippendale NSW 2008 02 9698 1135


Beauty Parlour & Hair Salon for men and women.

Buzz the intercom on a modern glass door in a quiet back street and step into the fantastical world of Esstudio Galleria.

Based conveniently in Sydney’s inner-city artistic hub of Chippendale, the Esstudio experience is unique, boutique and plenty of fun. Wave hello to resident canine Oxy, who lords it over the salon from atop his own personal wing chair, before sitting down under a vast and glittering antique chandelier for your in-depth consultation with Aleks – whose expertise comes with a side of his trademark energy and enthusiasm. A massage chair will make your shampoo a meltingly blissful experience, and you can then take your place in a comfy old barber’s chair for a cut that’s personally tailored to your needs and desires. The salon’s relaxed, convivial atmosphere means you might just – if you’re lucky – be offered a glass of wine to help the process along.

Best of all, Esstudio is far more than a hair salon. Beauty director Jax offers tiptop manis and pedis, along with fab makeup, facials, lash extensions, waxing, Ipl and more. And it’s not just your body getting an overhaul.  Why not make a day of it and opt for a pamper package for the full glam-over effect?

Designed with all Aleks and Jax’s visual flair, Esstudio is a seriously creative space – be prepared to be amazed! With décor heavily influenced by the old world, it has French Renaissance and pirate-ship undertones. An inspiring, creative location, it’s by appointment only for hair, beauty and wellbeing transformations.

We’ve become a sustainable salon!  Joining forces with Sustainable Salons to recycle 95% of our salons waste! Wowah! They do so many great things with our waste.  Please check out the link to see all the great things they do!
