customised approach to skincare choice and treatment plan. While most within the aesthetics industry are already delivering this, it is still common practice to sell pre-determined treatment packages sometimes without even seeing the client.

BESPOKE BEAUTY: THE TAILORED APPROACH TO BEAUTY ON THE RISE Bespoke has become an exhausted term in the clothing industry, and it loses its meaning each and every time it is referred to a made-to-measure (MTM) suit, this is because suit companies use it incorrectly. In actual fact bespoke rivals the term, "haute couture."

Customisation hits haircare And it’s not just for the skin, the trend of bespoke beauty is also branching into the haircare market as well. British brand Concoction soon to be launching in Australia are offering a range of haircare products that can be individually adapted with specially formulated “super serum” shots containing vitamins and active ingredients for every hair type and requirement. Dry ends and oily roots? Mix up your own solution on their website to combat both woes and watch it work magic.

Others stated that while in the past, skin was categorised into three types: dry, oily or combination, this blanket approach is considered incapable of treating the unique needs of the individual.
