Offering a variety of beauty services from top to toe, we offer many day spa style treatments without the BIG day spa prices and a complete range of hairdressing services with stylish flair...

There is nothing basic about Essential Body Basics. Actually many of our clients come to us not only for our services, they come to be treated especially when they need a little TLC. Our caring team are passionate about this industry and offer a full range of grooming services with a personal touch.

Essential Body Basics was first established in 2003. In 2005 Nerelle purchased the existing business which has blown out from a sole therapist  to a salon employing eight local women.  Managed by Beauty therapist  Nerelle Loader with qualified hairdressers Anne Garrow,  Brigid Madden, Vanessa Roberts, Beauty therapist/hairdresser Laura Pangrazzi, Beauty therapist Lucinda Bowtel, Apprentice Tabitha Potschka. And each month our Cosmetic Tattooist Renee Baker.

Spa pedicures are really popular and of course massage but we also offer more lavish SPA style services including body exfoliation, scrubs and wraps. We do full body waxing or sugaring (in a discrete manor), eyelash/brow tinting, eyelash extensions, targeted skin treatments, facials, manicure's and spray tanning.  Our Cosmetic Tattooist comes here each month, she offers eyebrow, eyelash & lip enhancements.  We have an amazing hairdressing team, they offer professional grooming and all hairdressing services with stylish flare. Always happy to do a consultation prior to the service to ensure their client is totally satisfied.

It's all about quality in our salon as we continue to update our skills and offer the most comprehensive range of beauty treatments in South Gippsland.  Located in Foster  which is close to Wilsons Promontory National Park, Waratah Bay, Sandy Point and Walkerville and not far from Leongatha, Koonwarra, Meeniyan, Toora, Welshpool and Yarram.
