Bali Vendor Spotlight: Glo Day Spa & Salon
When it comes to all things bridal beauty in Bali, there’s one name that continues to pop up across our Instagram feed and Real Bali weddings – and that’s the team at Glo Day Spa. These guys are not only seriously lovely to work with, but have a stellar reputation throughout Bali (for good reason!).
Helmed by the uber-talented Aussie expat Georgia Sutherland, Glo is renowned as the ultimate one-stop-shop – offering everything from expert hair and makeup to massages, tanning and nourishing skin treatments. Take it from us, the Glo experience is second to none, from the lush high-quality spa products through to the warm, friendly service and blissful surrounds.
We believe every bride deserves to feel her absolute best, so we recently sat down with Georgia to chat bridal beauty, pre-wedding pampering and the different spa packages available at Glo (complete with wine and nibbles – where do we sign up?!). If you’re currently planning your own Bali wedding, keep reading for a behind-the-scenes look at this luxury local salon.
Tell us about Glo Day Spa & Salon – where did it all begin?
Glo was the first city-style day spa and salon on the island opening its doors in July 2005 – truly the pioneer to Bali of this very popular style and theme. Glo has been the long time bridal go-to salon with a stellar team of therapists and stylists providing their guests with the one stop shop for all spa, beauty and salon needs. Featured by Conde Nast 2019 as “a beauty salon to rival the best in Bondi or Beverly Hills, by its first-rate services which won’t break the bank.”
Glo is owned by Georgia Sutherland, an Australian who has been lucky to call Bali her island home and whom is passionate about her team, the services that they do and has a love for the industry and island which is literally tangible!
What services do you currently offer at the spa?
We specialize in hair colouring, styling, make up, muscle smoothing massages and every beauty whim desired, all under one roof. Think tanning, facials, waxing, brows, lashes, massages, cuts, manis, pedis, weddings, spa parties. It’s all here, using only the best high quality products and with unrivalled training and guest service with affordable prices making Glo and expat, local and tourist favourite.
We know you specialise in bridal parties – what sort of packages are available and what do they include?
With a high demand from our bridal parties, we have recently launched an exclusive spa party package that includes 3-hours of pampering from head-to-toe that is ideal for groups of up to 16 people including blissfully beautiful facials for a luminous and radiant complexion; a thoroughly relaxing foot massage; a nourishing hair spa to revive and moisturize; and luxurious spa pedicure or manicure finished with a flawless polish while sipping wine and enjoying nibbles to ensure you leave feeling GLO-ing! That being said, we will create a bespoke spa party for groups wanting to spa together.
Can bridal parties visit the salon together or do you go to the venue on the day?
Yes! We can do both! They can go to either Glo Canggu or Glo Sanur or we can come to the comfort of their own villas! We call this Go Glo, and our team bring their skills to all parts of the island and other islands of Indonesia too. We are passionate about everything spa, beauty and bridal.
What makes Glo different?
With a couple of incredible Australian/ Western stylists on the floor who master in stylish cuts and colouring as well as bridal hair and make-up, we are also blessed with our talented Indonesian stylists who possess decades of experience. Our team is incredible and we are passionate about training and continually improving and learning new skills.
Glo is a leader and are first to bring many treatments and new services to the island. We are sincere in ensuring we use the best available products in the spas and salons and import many of these to the island. We have many vegan friendly and cruelty free products. Plus our Glo therapists and technicians have had special training in hygiene, avante-garde techniques and sanitation.
How many weddings would the Glo Glam Squad do per year? Do you have multiple teams?
Last year in 2018, we were involved with over 150 weddings all over the island. Our team is growing and we are blessed with so many incredibly talented team members. We have a strong passionate team who work so well together and can create and recreate any look that a bride wants from boho to formal to soft and romantic.
Tell us something we wouldn’t know about Glo Day Spa?
We are on the lookout for our next location in Bali, so stay tuned!
And finally, what would be your ultimate favourite package at Glo Day Spa for Bali brides?
We love our it’s ALL ABOUT ME package that provides our all-time-fave traditional cream bath and manicure and pedicure at the same time! You might want to top it off with a blow wave and a glass of wine and bring your bestie too!
