From our Director


Not many people know how I got started in beauty, and how I came to open MISS FOX. In fact, it was complete disenchantment with the the beauty industry that set in motion my journey to create a “better kind of beauty therapy”.

If you were with me 10 years ago, you would have found me working in corporate Melbourne, pausing the daily grind only for the occasional manicure, post-work bubbles or to fuel my increasingly-concerning shoe shopping addiction.

Fast forward a year from there, and a low moment of intense body criticism (we’ve all been there) saw me book in for a semi-invasive, semi-disastrous treatment to “slim and tone my body in just one session”. Having booked with the “best” clinic in town, I wasn’t expecting the extreme side effects and pain from these “natural injections”, but more so the lack of care or concern when things went horribly pear-shaped (which they literally did, and trust me, this was not the desired shape).

Although the event was scarring — both emotionally and physically — in that time I made a decision: that I would make it my mission to offer beauty therapy that was, first and foremost safe, and backed by excellence in customer care. That’s why our treatments at MISS FOX run with the strictest quality and safety measures, are completely non-invasive, and are supported with a 5-star level of customer service. One of my very favourite treatments now are our radio-frequency body contouring treatments (Venus Legacy) because not only did they help repair some of the damage from the invasive procedure, it is a smarter and completely non-invasive way to look and feel better.

Since we opened 8 years ago, MISS FOX has also evolved to a offer a more holistic, no-trauma approach to beauty therapy. Current science is showing that the more aggressive the treatment, the more thinning and inflammation — and the more the skin prematurely ages. That is why we have turned the industry on its head and said no to invasive and aggressive skin treatments such as laser resurfacing, skin needling, microdermabrasion (aka skin sandpapering), injections, glycolic, salicylic and retinoic acids, and even gritty manual exfoliants. 

Instead, we offer treatments and products that partner with the body, to build skin and internal health and stimulate change gently and naturally, using some of the world’s most intelligent ingredients and technologies. Explore our non-acid peels, non-invasive skin tools, LED light rejuvenation, holistic skin analysis, and even internal supplementation and nutrition for gut health. We’ve also partnered with experts in their field to offer you special events and services to assist you on an emotional level in life, love and career - we call it the mind-beauty connection.

All in all, MISS FOX wouldn’t be what it is today without some great challenges, obstacles and lessons. So remember, the crappy thing that happens today could be paving the way for the good things coming tomorrow. Trust the process. Be patient with yourself. Be kind to your self …and for goodness sake, be gentle on your skin.

— Victoria Fox, Founder/Director, MISS FOX Melbourne


Health & Wellbeing



It has become evident that many women (adolescents and young girls) are feeling significant pressure to be seen to be living a perfect existence. This I believe is due, in part, to the rise and rise of all things social media, where it has become commonplace to see the 'good highly stylised life' rather than the 'mundane & unedited real life'. What concerns me further, is this influence is all many of the new generation of young women know, and live by.  

I certainly understand this pressure. I recall some years back when social media became the new thing, trying to follow the glitzy articles, blogs or posts. Getting dragged into a new form of meditation, venturing to the gym to experience some new yoga craze, jumping on the gluten-free, vegan-free, life-free bandwagon. Just kidding myself that I was actually achieving something - anything - motivational by watching self help documentaries on youtube all day... And yet all of this did not budge that miserable space, a space that saw me comparing everything I had 'not' achieved to the photos and blogs of all those amazing tanned and stylish women who 'had'.

To add insult to injury I often felt even more hopeless given I had all these amazing tools literally at my finger tips that I should be drawing upon and learning from, (and lets not forget the bling bling photos of everyone else getting it right in wondrous parts of the world) and i just could not.  Worse still, I suffered in this space (behind my screen) all alone.

After some honest reflection it finally occurred to me that most of what we see and read on social media is not real, and over the years since then it has remained mostly the same, only now we are bombarded with way more content, way more 'paid' influencers and way more subtle advertising! For all the blessings that technology has provided us, it has also left us feeling, ironically,  less connected, more detached and way more self-critical than ever before.  

A further irony is the most important tool I had overlooked throughout my soul searching was the act of actually reaching out to another human being, to genuinely and physically connect with someone on a tangible level (the old-school way I like to call it).  And to be honest with them (and myself) about how I was feeling and/or struggling. What followed allowed me to learn more about self compassion, the power of being me and to never compare who I am with another.   

I also decided that it was OK to leave my phone and all its distractions at home and to choose who \I follow based more on shared values and vision than anything else.

A few weeks or so ago I went into Miss Fox in Melbourne’s CBD and had the opportunity to try the Venus Legacy Treatment. Below is a Q&A with Erin from Miss Fox on the treatment.


Can you give my readers a quick overview of the Venus Legacy treatment? 

Venus Legacy is the gold standard for non-surgical body and skin enhancement. It feels like a hot stone massage making it a comfortable treatment for our clients. Venus Legacy uses Varipulse Technology which massages the skin allowing us to work on the deeper layers. While the Varipulse is massaging radio frequency fields work to target the fibroblasts which will produce more collagen and elastin resulting in firmer, plumper skin. It also works on the fat cells helping to shrink them and remove toxins from fatty areas and encouraging blood flow to the area and a slimmer physique.

What parts of the face and body can the treatment work on? 

Venus Legacy can work on all areas of the face and body. We can contour waist lines, reduce cellulite on all areas of the body, lift the face and help to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. The only area we cannot work over is the thyroid gland. 

Should you change anything in your daily routine prior to your treatment? 

I always suggest my clients to stay hydrated and eat as clean as possible leading up to their treatments. Also giving your body or face an exfoliation the day before treatment will help as we wonʼt be working over layers of dead skin cells. 

Who would best suit the treatment? 

The treatment is best suited to anyone with concerns about cellulite, fine lines, wrinkles and loose skin. We always do a thorough consultation to ensure the treatment is safe for our clients and they donʼt have any contraindications. 

Is there any down time?

No down time at all. Erythema (redness) may last up to 12 hours and some clients experience bruising. This normally goes away within a few days. 

How long until I see results? 

Results typically can be noticed after one or two treatments. We take photos and measurements on our clients first session so we have something to look back on and compare results. 

How many treatments to maintain results? 

Venus legacy has documented its results to last a minimum of 18 months but will continue to last ongoing if one session per quarter is maintained after the series. It is also important to continue with regular exercise and eating a clean diet with daily dry body brushing incorporated into your routine. 

Should I do anything particular after the treatment? 

After the treatment hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Going for a walk (if you are working on  your body) or doing some yoga to further detoxify the body is recommended here at MISS FOX

Think of this treatment like a spot treatment for your area of concern. After the treatment moving your body will help burn fat from that area. 

How often should you have treatments and how far apart? 

Once a week for 8 sessions for the body and 10 sessions for the face.

Skin Analysis Melbourne

Like beauty X-ray vision, skin analysis is one of the industry’s most popular procedures. Gone are the days of naked eye assessment; trained therapists can now use nifty modern tools to take a look at what lies beneath your skin’s surface – from pigmentation issues and fungal infections to pre-teen sun damage. But to what effect? WH&F journalist Angelique Tagaroulias and editor Katelyn Swallow investigate.

To be honest, I spent a large portion of my youth out in the sun – from family days at the beach as a child battling the waves to my later years sun-tanning by the pool, lathered up in coconut oil (eek). To top it off, my skincare routine as an adult consists of splashing water on my face and the occasional cleanse on days that I do care enough to wear make-up.

Despite my lack of skin love, I’ve had minimal issues with my complexion over the years (or so I thought). So when WH&F editor Katelyn and I decided to get a skin analysis at the renowned MISS FOX day spa in inner city Melbourne, I wasn’t sure what I’d get out of it. Katelyn, on the other hand – with her many years’ suffering redness and the occasional spots of acne – could barely contain her excitement. 


The waiting room of the MISS FOX day spa, clinic and beauty salon appears more like a Vogue spread than a place to fill out your medical form. With the front entrance located down a hip Melbourne laneway and the steps to the spa sprinkled with rose petals, we were given herbal tea to sip as we scribbled, perched on beautiful red couches and surrounded by Marilyn Monroe paintings. It was luxe meets comfort, and we were instantly at ease.

The initial 10 minutes of my consult was spent informing the therapist of my skin concerns, its general condition and my daily skincare routine (gulp). Once the history was taken, I was escorted
to a darkened room with a daybed for the formal skin analysis and medifacial (which was absolute bliss).

A skin analysis is essentially a time machine for your face, showing damage or underlying issues invisible to the naked eye and that may have occurred as early as childhood. This info is used by a qualified skin therapist, who takes into account your skin’s current condition, skincare routine, skin type, genetics and medical history, to recommend a skin treatment.

“Some form of spectral imaging or photography is used to assess what is happening below the skin surface that’s not visible to the naked eye,” says director of MISS FOX Melbourne Day Spa, Salon & Clinic Victoria Fox (

“For example, a hand-held wood lamp that utilises black UVA light is held over an area of skin in a darkened room. The presence of certain bacteria or changes in the pigmentation of your skin will cause affected areas of your skin to change colour under the light, showing skin irregularities such as pigmentation, oil and hydration levels, and can detect bacterial or fungal
skin infections.”

Despite not having any obvious skin concerns aside from an oily T-zone and dehydration post-holiday (sun exposure and holiday food were to blame), the wood-lamp light showed white patches and spots across my brow and cheeks – pigmentation issues that had developed from my years out in the sun; I was surprised (and horrified) to find that my lifestyle had showed up years later – and on my face.

I was given a skincare plan, including products (both natural mineral make- ups and clinical strength synthetic versions) to use at different times throughout the day to help with my combination skin. 


HOW: Using specialised equipment and skin grading systems, a therapist can analyse your skin’s condition and recommend the appropriate treatments and products for healthy skin.

WHY: With so many items and treatments available in today’s
market, choosing the right skincare products and treatments can be
difficult and overwhelming for the average consumer. Skincare sold at a department store or chemist is rated differently to clinic-only products, containing milder forms of ingredients and lower active percentages for consumer safety, whereas products designed to make physiological changes to the deeper layers of skin must be professionally prescribed.

RESULTS: By consulting a skin professional, you can receive advice that cuts through the hype and is tailored for your skin, its needs and your personal skin goal. You’ll also have access to products with more active ingredients, and will see more effective outcomes.


Following our road test, Katelyn and I agreed that anyone can benefit from a skin analysis – whether you have normal skin and a clear complexion, suffer from acne, or simply want to soak up the excess oil on your snoz.

If you do have a more serious condition such as rosacea, psoriasis, redness, eczema, asthma or liver problems, it’s advisable to seek further assessment from a health professional, says Fox.

“Chronic health conditions and internal imbalances all impact the health and appearance
of the skin, so many skin treatment programs will incorporate internal supplementation and recommend work to address the emotional and mental health of a patient as well, which may require a referral to other professionals,” says Fox.

“In our experience, an initial skin analysis will serve you for approximately three months. As yourskin improves and changes as a result of prescribed treatments and homecare, a follow-up session will show if your routine is still relevant or needs to
be modified.”

The cost of an initial skin analysis at MISS FOX is $150 to $300 and your homecare routine will see you investing in anything from $200 to $800. On average, you’re looking at paying about $150 per month for a clinical skin treatment.

Although I went into the consult thinking it wasn’t worth my time or money, our skin is our largest organ, so the investment in taking good care of it seems well worth it. Even if you don’t have any significant skin issues – like myself – talking to a professional and seeing the damage I had done helped scare me into taking better care of one of my greatest assets. Plus, the procedure is safe provided you are in the hands of a skilled professional. 

Health & Wellbeing



When it comes to taking care of our skin the first thing that usually jumps to mind are the various cleansers and serums that we use topically. These products are vital for thoroughly cleaning the skin and delivering crucial ingredients for happy glowing skin. However, this is only half the battle. So much of our outer beauty is regulated by our inner health, in particular our gut health.

When I talk about gut health, I am referring to all stages of digestion and function. From the hydrochloric acid in your stomach to the diversity of bacteria in your bowel, it all needs to be strong and balanced to function at its best.

Over recent years there has been an increased interest in the gut/skin axis (or the gut/skin connection) which is changing the way we view skin health and improve clinical outcomes. The human body is fascinating! The way it works to keep its self in balance and carry out its functions tirelessly everyday – never stopping for a break, it is truly a wonder to behold.  It is therefore important to treat it with respect and appreciate when we may need to give a little helping hand when things get tough.

Have you ever noticed how after a night of heavy drinking or fast food you wake up to an unwanted breakout or tired dehydrated skin? This is because poor dietary and lifestyle choices can lead to intestinal permeability (commonly called leaky gut) which can cause a whole host of problems.

When the protective barrier that lines our digestive track becomes damaged an increased passage of antigens can enter into the body. Over time this can lead to a vicious cycle of inflammation and tissue damage. If we also have a degree of dysbiosis (overgrowth of bad bacteria), which are releasing endotoxins, further inflammation and loss of barrier function will occur.

This cycle results in the nervous system releasing substance P in the gut and skin which increases sebum production (the oil in your skin). An overgrowth of the bacterium Propionibacterium acnes further triggers inflammatory pathways leading to blackheads, pimples, lines and wrinkles.

But luckily, we can stop this process. Your skin care routine prescribed by your skin therapist is still crucially important but investigating and treating the underlying cause is a central step which shouldn’t be over looked. High strength broad spectrum probiotics, digestive enzymes and anti-inflammatory ingredients will all help to rebalance, strengthen and heal the gut, resulting in a healthy and happy body inside and out!

It's the festive season, and treats are in order. Not only do these look chic, each decadent truffle houses anti-inflammatory turmeric and cacao with a boost of coconut oil. They are choc-full of skin nutrients and essential fats to give you a glow on the outside, and the inside.


  • 1/2 cup soaked sunflower seeds (or any other seeds you have on hand)        
  • 1/2 cup soaked walnuts (or any other nuts you have on hand)        
  • 1/2-1 cup dates soaked        
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt        
  • 4 tablespoons raw cacao
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon


1. Process the nuts/seeds in the food processor. Keep processing them until you can't see the nuts anymore, but stop processing before they get too soft looking.
2. Add the dates, sea salt and cocoa powder. Process again until everything is well mixed and clumped together.        
3. Roll the balls in your hand and form balls. Leave them plain, or roll in your choice of toppings: goji berries, freeze dried raspberries, coconut, cocoa powder, pistachios, matcha green tea, hemp seeds, nuts such as almonds, hazelnuts and varied seeds can be used as well.

Yes, men should regularly get manicures' says @executivestyleau who interviewed our in-house grooming guru Miss Daniela Ghinami on men's nail and beauty care. "Getting a manicure is not something you should feel you can't talk to your friends about," said Miss Ghinami. "It's like showering or shaving. It's not frivolous or vain; it's actually something you do to feel and look good"...

 "You're not putting on fancy colours or wearing nail polish - it's also about general maintenance. Having soft hands, not rough, when your touching your partner is a preference for most people. Guys get calluses and rough skin – I don't don't want it to feel like a scrub when you caress my face"...

So why not join the ranks of men enjoying the confidence and swagger that comes from owning two hands of immaculate nails? You never know, it could mean the difference between securing that lucrative new partnership or simply nailing that first impression on your next date. That pun was definitely intended.

Beauty Tips, Hair Tips


We spoke to our Principal Stylist and hairdressing guru Chris Gjergjevica about the hair trends for the season, and here’s some super-current hair-gold he had to share: 

“For the rest of Summer and moving in to Autumn, hair styles are very definite. It’s all or nothing for length, colour and styling. 

The length of the moment is short and blunt, so it’s a great time to let go of wispy lengths and even things up. Choppy, shoulder-length styles with little to no layering are very fresh right now. 

The colour of the moment is blocked. Single block colour is favoured over feathered or soft highlights. Choose a colour, like a rich brown or clean blonde, and commit to it fully. Warm colours are winning our over cool, and and beige is in for blondes. Muted tones versus brights give a sophisticated, effortless look for all. If you are wanting to try a new tone or even a creative pastel, speak to your stylist about “colour chemistry” to select a shade that works to complement your natural colouring. Just like a lipstick or blush, not all shades will flatter all complexions. Get professional advice on what kind of colour will enhance your skin, eyes, brows and even teeth.

Deep parting, to the centre or to the side, is a chic and current way to wear your locks, and when it comes to styling, go for dead straight hair or more defined waves - nothing in between! Use a high-quality straightening iron or wrap-around barrel curler for sleek styling, but be sure to use a low setting to protect hair health. You are welcome to "messy" things up a little, but be sure to keep the wave structure intact. 

I'm also loving natural movement on the hairline - no need to blast or iron away those beautiful natural waves or curves around the face or your baby hairs. Let them be and enjoy the playfulness and softness they bring to the face.

This is also the era of home treatments! Just like a weekly face mask or body scrub, your hair needs regular love from a high quality, professionally-prescribed home treatment. Ask your stylist to recommend something just for you. At MISS FOX our guests love their Olaplex No. 3 take-home Hair Perfector treatment, which is the perfect compliment to our professional Olaplex salon treatment, but can also give brilliant strengthening to damaged or coloured hair as a standalone product. For real spa-style indulgence, try a Kevin Murphy treatment mask, a high-performance botanically based salon-only product with delicious scents to take you to hair heaven.

Most importantly, really get to know your hair, and love your hair. Care for it like you would any other body part, find out what works for you and learn how to do your own hair. After all, the hair you love is the hair you’ll embrace".

To complement our ever-popular MISS FOX Makeup Tutorials, we’re now offering 1-1 Hair Tutorials with Chris so you can have the ultimate helping-hand to style, care for and love your hair just that little bit more. From blow drying to waving, detoxing and de-frizzing, or the ever-elusive messy topknot or bun, Chris will customise a lesson to suit you and your hair.

Ladies, the days of perfect, bouncy blowwaves are over, for now anyway. Forget sectioning and setting; untouched and untamed hair is the most current way of making your hair look amazing. The aim here is volume and texture -- avoid small sections or leaving hair in big rollers and instead blast dry with volume, and use products and thermal tools to add shape. 

Achieve the undone look at home with Kevin Murphy DOO.OVER. Use it on clean, blasted hair, spraying through mid-lengths to ends. Be sure to shake well before use. The holding power and volume will make you look effortlessly put together.

Blunt cut, healthy hair is on trend for Autumn -- all one length without layers, and subtle shaping around the face. Long hair is very popular at the moment, but if you are looking for a shorter look, collar bone length is also very much in fashion right now -- still long enough to be versatile, have waves, worn straight or even up.

Natural roots with blonde ends is being replaced with lighter colour that frames the face and reaches up towards the roots. If you've been rocking the ombre look, be adventurous and add some balayage highlights or foils higher up around the face to bring your colour on-trend for Autumn/Winter. Protect your hair when lightening wth Olaplex 2 salon treatment, and top up at home with the awesome Olaplex 3 home treatment. 

As always, if you need any hair advice, book a complimentary hair consultation with me for professional, personalised advice any time Tuesday-Saturday.

Love and Romance, Chris

Giving & Environment


We're all trying to do our bit for the planet, and small changes to your shopping habits can make a huge difference. 

15 billion trees are being cut down every year and a big part of that is to make toilet paper, tissues and kitchen towels. Switching to recycled products has a huge impact on the planet. At MISS FOX, all of our toilet paper and tissues come from the cool team at Who Gives A Crap, whose products are not only 100% forest friendly, they also donate 50% of profits to WaterAid to help build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world.

You can easily get Who Gives a Crap products delivered to your door, saving lugging toilet rolls home, and helping to do good for people and planet. To celebrate Earth Day, their offering $5 off orders placed before April 28th. Use code FIVER at the checkout. Visit their site to order today.
