About Sue Kidd

Sue Kidd - Beauty TherapistMy interest in skin care began whilst I was working in a retail pharmacy in the early 80’s, this combined with later work in hospital pharmacy and the service sector all contributed to my service skills and nurturing sensibilities and I developed a passion for the beauty and wellness industry.

Having decided to follow my passion I began my Beauty Therapist qualification in 1991 and subsequently gained my Associate Diploma of Health Sciences-Beauty Therapy. After working in the industry for many years in several of Melbourne’s highest profile salons all the while experiencing the good and the bad that the industry has to offer, I felt compelled to introduce an alternative for clients and therapists alike.

In 1995 I established Decadence Skin & Body Therapy in South Yarra with the aim of delivering the highest quality, professional treatments with honest advice and individualised service. I ran the salon as an owner-operator for nine years during which time I employed a team of wonderful therapists who pampered our vast and varied clientele.

Under my ownership Decadence earned several industry awards and found favour with many of Melbourne’s social elite. After training with a leading Sydney practitioner I introduced into Melbourne what is commonly now known as XXX waxing for both men and women. Being one of the first to offer these services I found that many other salons sent their clients to Decadence for these specialised treatments.

The South Yarra lifestyle was great, but the imminent birth of my second daughter and the long commuting distances from Olinda convinced me to sell the salon and look to the local area for my inspiration. I have a passion for skincare and wellbeing in general, I am a wife and proud mother of three beautiful girls and so I understand the stresses of juggling busy schedules and the demands of everyday life. But we should never underestimate the importance of making time for YOU.

I have an established beauty salon in Olinda where you can experience a private, tranquil and relaxing environment. I offer you personalised care combined with professional grade products and value for money to achieve the outstanding results that you deserve and should expect. Evening appointments are available so put the kids to bed. :)
