In 2021, Fuss celebrated its 16th birthday & first birthday with LA Aesthetics.
16 wonderful years ago Fuss was Founded by Mardi Goodes.
Mardi started off in a small shop which continued to grow and blossom into what you know today as FUSS.
In 2021 Mardi stepped away from the business and handed the reins to myself (Leah Mcnicol) to continue to grow and nurture her baby into the future.
“My deep passion for helping people is what started Fuss 15 years ago, but it’s my ever-growing love for skin that has allowed my business to continue to grow. Healthy skin is the heart of my business, my reason for being in business, and what drives us to achieve the life changing results of feeling comfortable in your own skin.”- Mardi Goodes
In 2020 I purchased the business from Mardi, whom I was working for at the time. I could see the potential and with the success of the skin clinic, a love for aesthetics and my day spa background, we expanded, renovated and grew into a one stop shop for all things skin, hair & beauty.
We are still a very skin focused salon and perform all your favourite treatments but we also now provide luxury hair, makeup and spa services.
Hi FUSS Tribe,
My name is Leah McNicol, I was born and raised in Mount Gambier. I moved away to the big city to pursue my hair & beauty career. I used to be a client many years ago before moving away when Mardi had her Elizabeth Street salon.
I remember getting my nails done one night and it was so relaxing, it literally felt like the world had paused for a moment! I will never forget that moment of pure bliss.
Fuss has always felt like home to me and I cant thank Mardi enough for everything she has done to get FUSS to where it is today. So a little bit about myself, I have been in the industry for over 15 years and have worked for high profile salons like Toni & Guy and Endota Spa.
I am currently studying Clinical Aesthetics and Advanced Chemistry, and love training and watching my staff grow into confident therapists. My vision is to provide a retreat where you can be pampered from head to toe in a non rushed, exclusive, clean environment with a high focus on education.
During 2021 I took over the remaining two shops adjoining FUSS, we renovated the space putting in private booths for our hair stations which were hand crafted with Tasmanian oak, built another 4 treatment rooms, a makeup studio and brought the much loved AVEDA brand back to Mount Gambier.
Since opening the new area our team has grown, we have introduced Youngblood mineral cosmetics, Pink Nade and become DMK pure status!! Stay tuned… I have so much more coming!!
love & light
