Napier’s private home-based nail & beauty studio with a big heart

( / sabi ) noun ~ the beauty & serenity that comes with age

Hey, I’m Fae!

Manicure diva, pedicure pro & waxing whizz. Buff that up with a creative mind, sparklin’ heart and a  retro vibe and you’ve got Sabi Studio. Awatoto’s private home-based nail & beauty studio with a decent-sized serve of heart, soul & bloody good times.

Connection, conversation & community

That’s what sets Sabi apart. Yea, I could bang on about Sabi being Napier’s top (unofficially official) nail & pedicure experience - but I’ll let the women who walk inside Sabi chat about that. 

Instead, Sabi is about so much more than manicures, pedicures & hair removal. 

Sabi is about you. The courage within and empowering you to step into yourself and shine. 

A nail, pedicure & waxing studio where every woman is welcome. Comfort & care is at my core.

From booking to visiting, you’ll feel it in your soul

Accessible hours, affordable treatments, free parking, an inclusive feel-good space, great coffee, epic yarns & the best tunes in town. Oh and yeah – a damn good nail & pedicure experience. Enhancing without compromise is what Sabi does best.

Appointment times to suit you

Yip, that’s right. Sabi Studio isn’t your traditional 9-5 Hi / Bye salon. With 4 days to choose from and 3 late nights each week, there’s spaces to work in with what you’ve got goin’ on.

Praise from the beautiful women who amp up my street cred

“Sabi is the best in-home salon (or any salon for that matter) I’ve ever been to. The salon is warm, chic, inviting and comfortable. AND THEN THERE’S FAE! Who is the kindest, most creative human. I have been going to Fae’s salon for years. She is affordable, authentic, warm natured and so good at what she does! I definitely recommend Sabi!! 5 Stars, 5 Hearts!!” ~ NANCY
