French Bikini Wax

Postby JAWS » Wed, 03 Oct 2007 12:06 pm

Hi

Does anyone know where I can get a decent French Wax for my bikini
line in Singapore?

So far any wax I have had, the cotton strips have been used and I'm
not keen on these.

French Wax is applied to the area, left for a minute or so then peeled
off (along with the hair!)[/b] :roll:

I've been to Strip and that's not what they are doing.
I haven't tried Visage yet.

Do you mean hard wax? Wax that is solid, heated to thick liquid, applied to the hair, wait a while to harden somewhat and ripped off in one whole piece together with the hair?

I've been to Strip at Paragon, they used a green colour hard wax on me. Upon hardening, it's more like rubbery texture. (a bit like bubble gum)

Many years ago, other places I went to only had the same type of hard wax which is light brown and done the same way as above. This wax texture is a bit harder then the green hard wax I did at Strip.

My waxer is in The Grooming Room in Parkway Parade. Her name is Mavis.

She uses the "hard" wax like my beautician in London and she understands what I want.

However, she tends to slack when it gets busy so you have to tell her. Costs $45 for me to have everything off. :)

I can 100% recommend The Honey Pot for brazilian waxing.
Very similiar, if not more detailed and precise than salons in Australia. They didnt attempt any of my ingrown hairs (not sure if it is common here) but they did get EVERY hair.
They use hot wax (NOT strip wax) and the lady told me its actually Australian wax that is imported and the only place in Singapore its used.

I went to the one in Pacific Plaza on Scotts Road.

Hope this helps! I will definately be returning in the near future!

For all those out there, hot wax is 100% less painful than strip wax.

There's nothing wrong with cotton strips. If I'm not wrong, it is called soft/strip/cold/warm wax, this usually comes in a bottle with a roll-on applicator applied to skin, usually on larger areas like legs or arms etc. Cotton or plastic strips placed on wax immediately, stroked and smoothen and pull up with the wax and har transfered on to the cotton strips. You can find this cold soft wax for DIY home use at the pharmacy

Hard wax or called hot wax, is a hard lump of wax and has too be warmed up in an electric pot to become more liquid (much like caramel), the therapist will test for comfortable temperature, applied with a spatula, spread onto the skin, usually better for underarm hair (much thicker and shorter). The therapist will pat the wax, it will harden a little and pulled off by hand like a patch of thick buble gum.

I have tried both at Strip. Any wax that uses cotton or plastic strips is called strip or soft wax, can be warm or cold. For my legs, they use warm wax, which is warmed, soft wax.

I must say that in all my experience, soft/strip wax, the re growth is faster, I can feel the slight stubble in about 2 weeks on my legs.

I prefer hard/hot wax for underarms. I've tried this for legs too, the re growth is much slower, say 4 weeks and less stubble or some how the stubble is softer. Hard wax is expensive, very expensive for large areas like legs.
