Melbourne Street Is The Mecca Of Summer Rejuvenation

A guide to rejuvenating yourself in time for summer on Melbourne Street.

If last weekend’s gorgeous weather was a wake up call to the fact that spring is right around the corner (despite the rainy week), we feel you. We’ve breached the halfway point of 2017 and are looking ahead at summer, ready to conquer beaches, pool parties and Mad March. We’ve recently started on our health kick here at Glam Adelaide, and have been looking into how everyone else shakes off the winter blues and preps for the warmer months.
Come to find out, Melbourne Street is a one-stop shop when it comes to rejuvenating yourself. From yoga to skin treatments, non-invasive cosmetic procedures, nutrition, Hypoxi, hairdressers and fashion retailers, you’re pretty much set. If you’re even looking for a little bit more (like cosmetic surgery), Melbourne Street has got that too. We’ve found people who are interested in this are heading to places like Medical Cosmetic Centre and Melbourne Street Medical & Cosmetic.
So we’ve pulled together a list of places along Melbourne Street that might be right up your alley:

Hot Yoga Life Adelaide

So yoga is already great, everyone knows that. Not only does it improve your flexibility, perfects your posture and increases your blood flow, but it’s incredible for your mental health too. Hot Yoga Life incorporates these amazing benefits and then flips it on its head.

Providing classes of three different temperatures – Hot, Warm and Unheated – no matter whether you’re a beginner who can barely get back up after sitting on the ground or you’re a yoga master who can achieve a Sleeping Yogi pose (look it up, it’s intense), you’ll find a class to make you sweat.

Give your body a workout as well as your spirituality, and get those summer vibes in check.

Level 4, 21-39 Melbourne St, North Adelaide.

Advanced Cosmetic Medicine

Hands up if your face gets super dry and dull during winter? Rather than slapping a whole bunch of vaseline on your face and calling it a day, maybe treat yo’self a bit and have a chat to Rahma at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine. A qualified doctor is definitely the way to go if you’re thinking of doing anything to your skin, and not only does she have an amazing story but her cosmetic skill set is equally as amazing.

Advanced Cosmetic Medicine do everything from facials, non-invasive procedures, injectables, Factor4 and so forth, so you can press refresh on your winter skin woes and have a bright, clear complexion for summer. Don’t forget your sunscreen though!
55/55 Melbourne St, North Adelaide.

Majestic Minima

Sometimes all you need is a good rest to give you that extra pep in your step and shine in your eyes and trust us, this quirky hotel is where you want to stay. Each Minima Hotel room has been handed to a South Australian artist for them to visually represent their take on the theme of ‘creativity and creation’, and there have been some incredible creations.
Book a weekend here and relax in their beautiful rooms, look at Melbourne Street from above on their exclusive guest terrace, or pop down and explore the many eateries down the street (might we suggest The Spot On Melbourne, E For Ethel or Butter Fingers).
146 Melbourne St, North Adelaide.


Looking to lose a few more than a couple of those stubborn kilos and want a workout you know will get the job done? HYPOXI is a fantastic workout which uses a low-impact exercise method which is more effective at burning stubborn fat than traditional exercise andsignificantly reduces cellulite.

They use advanced vacuum and compression technology paired with healthy nutrition to switch on your body’s natural system to burn specific areas of fat and cellulite. So basically, you work out in this machine that sucks and sucks you into a vacuum, to ensure you have targeted weight loss in your stubborn areas (we’re looking at you, love handles).

Perfect for those who don’t want to or can’t do high-intensity workouts, if you want to thin out your thighs before short weather or have a bit less chub on your tum, HYPOXI have got your back.

3/88A Melbourne St, North Adelaide.

Club Rhythm

Club Rhythm has it all: pilates, nutritionists, personal trainers, massages, gym facilities – and the list goes on! The idea is to bring a sustainable lifestyle change into your everyday life, whether that’s through weight loss, muscle building, fixing lower back pain or to simply relearn about your body and gain some confidence while you’re at it.

Destress and detox your body, while learning all about its ins and outs. Why do you bloat when you eat broccoli and apples? Why do you feel like you’re going to die every time you lift a weight heavier than 8kg? They can help with that and have different options to suit different needs, including one on one sessions, group classes and nutrition guidance.

If you lack direction for your summer bod goals, these are the guys to talk to.

Karibu Boutique

Now, we’ve watched every makeover movie known to man, and we can unequivocally say that no makeover is complete without a wardrobe revamp. Think Brittany Murphy’s Tai in Clueless, Julia Roberts’ Vivian in Pretty Woman, or Rachel Leigh Cook’s Laney Boggs in She’s All That. You know that’s right.

If you’re looking for the final step in your mission to refresh yourself for the warmer months, look no further than Karibu Boutique. They stock a huge range of up-to-the-minute, trend-driven styles that won’t break the bank, without skimping on quality.

With a great range of eclectic gifts & home wares, commissioned artworks draping the walls, and new stock being unpacked every few days, you can revitalise your home to match your new threads.

123 Melbourne St, North Adelaide

Clip Joint Salons

A true makeover is never complete without fixing the hair, whether that’s getting subtle highlights for summer or making a significant change. This is where Clip Joint Salons comes in with their scissors of sorcery and magic wands of colouring, and turn your hair into the Instagram-worthy locks we all dream of.

During the 45 years Clip Joint Salons has been on Melbourne St, the main street has evolved into a lively destination for cutting edge style and a place to revitalise yourself for every season. Nestled in-between trendy boutiques and known for its warm and relaxed environment, the open-plan salon is light and airy and opens up onto a leafy courtyard – the perfect place to relax with a magazine and coffee during your service.

Turn your bad hair day into a good hair month, and have people stare at you open-mouthed as they wonder how you got locks as soft as butter and as golden as the sunset on a summer’s night.
