Yes I know that it is nearing the end of Summer but this year HK’s Summer has gone well passed August (my birthday month hint hint) and is set to give us some Summer heat well into September. So yes that means that if you wish to enjoy the HK junks and laze by the pool to top up that tan then here you go…yes you need to wax.
A deeply personal subject due to the area concerned but also (now excuse the pun as it is intended) but the butt of many jokes due to reality TV dramas like The Only Way is Essex… vajazzles anyone?
So I have been in HK for a good few years now and well I have been to a variety of places – some good and some eye wateringly bad. I am not going to name and shame those places but well, it was painful.
I was lucky recently to get the chance to visit STRIP which is an international chain of hair removal services started up by a female genius. She recognised the need for professionals who can make the procedure as quick and painless as possible. Also to make the experience as (yes I hate to say it) PLEASURABLE as possible. To achieve this end, each STRIP has its own individual theme in decor. The one I visited looked a bit like some sort of artist haven. No one STRIP has the same decor. Also the STRIP therapists are TRAINED. They could have had training at other establishments but before they are even allowed to have their first day at a STRIP establishment, all have to go to Singapore to the STRIP HQ for some long and intensive training. From the basics to the more finer techniques of hair removal. They are tested constantly until the teachers are satisfied that the therapists are up to STRIP‘s high standards. My therapist told me that the course is so intense, people have been known to drop out. I guess you could call it the hair removal version of SEAL training.
This of course reassured me completely and what sealed the deal was that my lovely therapist also added that there are routine tests to ensure that each STRIP therapist does not get lazy and cut corners and maintains their STRIP standards.
Well, let me just say I was impressed. Not only was the venue cute and fun but my therapist was an expert and had me waxed in no time. Efficiency at its finest. I would definitely recommend this place to any nervous about waxing ladies.
Whilst you are there, go to the sister store BROWHOUSE which offers quick and friendly eye brow shaping and upper lip hair removal. I was thoroughly impressed by that place too.
