Beauty is not how you look,
but how you feel
We nurture beauty from the inside out in our safe, welcoming, judgement-free, results-driven space.
With every treatment we attempt to redefine the word ‘beauty’ and erase the negative stigma associated with self care.
Self care is just that, humans choosing to carve out a little time to CARE about their physical and mental health.
It’s not selfish: it’s self care. And this is our passion.
Welcome to The Hive.
How we do this?
We blend a holistic and a clinical approach to skin health for maximum results.
And btw, when we say holistic, we don’t mean some new age nonsense. As it happens, the word ‘holistic’ comes from the Greek word ‘holos’, meaning whole. When you enter through our doors, you’re a whole human being, and we treat you as one.
We live and breathe to empower you through education, genuine conversation, connection and results.
The grass is greener where you water it.Anonymous
Beauty thrives where it’s nourished, and we put all our energy into making our little hide-away studio an incubator of nourishment and wellbeing.
So that confidence and calm can bloom.
We welcome you just as you are. We want you to feel relaxed and like you’re in good hands as soon as you walk in to our inclusive space.
I’m constantly blown away by Lucy’s extensive knowledge on all things skin care and beauty. Her holistic, results driven approach is industry leading. All her services are delivered in a stunning space.Ellie Devenish
But there is not just one recipe for good skin
We find the right recipe for you together. We put in our years of expertise, you bring in your experiences and your observations. Together we work out what your skin needs to thrive.
We want you to leave the clinic feeling relaxed, confident and empowered with a new understanding of how to achieve skin health.
Your treatment with The Hive will be just the beginning of a better relationship with your skin, and the continuation of a magical ritual called ‘caring for yourself.’
You’ll walk out feeling PROUD for putting yourself first.
Some names may be familiar: peels, micro-needling, brow shaping. But what you won’t find here is one-size-fits-all treatments.
We get to know you and your needs, and only then do we suggest the best course of action for you.
This was hands down the best facial I’ve ever had! Lucy is a wealth of knowledge. It was the perfect amount of relaxing and education! She is a must for anyone with skin issues or who just want to feel amazing!Bri Dryden
Our clients found their self-care place. We hope it becomes yours.
Not just fluffy feel good stuff, but real skin analysis and education. Lucy is a skin encyclopaedia. Her knowledge fills me with confidence that my facials are tailored for me and my skin, not just a facial plucked from a standard list.Kate Muldoon
Always such a personalised experience. My skin is continuing to improve, and the whole experience is amazing, relaxing and comfortable.Ashley Blizzard
Our beauty tools
We spend extensive time researching and choosing the best products for your skin. Ethical, tested and proven, and local (where possible) are some of our criteria. We use cosmeceutical ranges, and locally sourced small-batch and organic products.
We’re mighty confident that your skin will LOVE them.
But our biggest tool is our knowledge, experience, and intuitive hands. We stay up to date with the latest skin science and technology. They’re the tools that will help you take control of your skin decisions.
Your skin expert
As an acne-prone teenager, Lucy wanted so badly to find a solution for her skin problems. Which led her to beauty school, years of learning and nerding about the science of healthy skin. She has been helping her clients change their relationship with their skin for the past 12 years.
As The Hive founder, Lucy lives and breathes skin science. She graduated with a Diploma of Beauty from Elly Lukas Beauty Therapy College (which, just in case you didn’t know, is kind of the bee’s knees of the beauty world).
Lucy is an absolute skin nerd, so chances are you’ll leave the appointment with a new appreciation for your skin and the things you can easily do to keep it happy.
She brings your awareness to your lifestyle choices, emotions and the tools already in your toolkit, so you can start an internal and holistic approach to skin health.
