Urban Spa has grown from Suzanne Home of Beauty, Baulkham Hills (1980) to become the company it is today. In 1983, a second salon opened in Castle Hill and the Baulkham Hills salon had the addition of a Beauty Academy. By 1990 the Australian Academy of Beauty Therapy was well established and became a registered training organisation in 1998 being one of the first beauty therapy training schools to be Government accredited.Suzanne's Home of Beauty moved to larger premises in Castle Hill and was renamed Emmas Secret. The success continued with salons opening in Wahroonga, Beecroft and Chatswood over the years. The need for a quality Australian made skin care range was evident and this gave way to the development of our own products, which were used professionally in the salons and available for retail at an affordable price.In 2006, the company launched its new concept day spa and the first Urban Spa located at Breakfast Point was opened. It offered the latest in beauty therapy with a spa experience. The Emma Secret salons were then transformed into the modern Urban Spa. In 2007, Urban Spa salons were opened at Gladesville and Avalon. It is also during this time the Australian Academy of Beauty Therapy moved from its premises at Castle Hill to purpose built facility at Norwest and expanded to a second premises at Strathfield.A further two Urban Spas are opened in early 2010 in Rhodes and on Sydney's North Shore. Chatswood moved into beautiful new premises at Westfield and a Neutral Bay salon opened this year.
