Waxing has become a beauty routine for many of us in Hong Kong. With nearly 6 months of summer and our beaches less than 15 minutes away, not to mention the jaunts to a beach resort 2-3 flight hours away every-time there’s a public holiday, we bare our legs and wear our bikinis very often indeed. Its no wonder waxing salons are popping up and staying to cater to the demand for smooth legs and body.
Here’s a list of the top 3 places we have tested and tried in Hong Kong. The 3 things we look for in a place that offers what we consider good waxing are i) hygiene ii) skills + minimum pain iii) price + environment.
Hygiene- the most important factor, here we want to ensure that the waxer wear gloves during the wax and she should never double-dip the wooden waxing stick into the wax. Instead, she should use fresh sticks for each application or different ends of the stick. New towels please on the bench if you are waxing your privates.
Skills – waxing is not the most pleasant experience in the world, there’s pain involved when your hair gets yanked . So its very important that the person doing the waxing is well trained and have lots of experience to do it well and quickly. The faster she is the less painful. Most of the good waxer have excellent interpersonal skills to make you feel relaxed in an otherwise awkward and painful exercise.
Environment – love both the luxe cream interior of Nude and also the funkier pink and red rooms at Honeypot and Strip. Drapey curtains, places to keep your belongings and a well temperature controlled room and we’re happy.
