In 2012, single and just a few months of living in Singapore, I decided out of whim to try out having a Brazilian Wax and see if I would like it & if I can tolerate the pain. For those who doesn’t know what Brazilian wax, please go google it. I saw this cute girly place in Joo Chiat, Katong named Pink Parlour that has Brazilian waxing, other hair removal treatments, manicure & pedicure treatments and spray tanning services. So I booked my first Brazilian wax without any hesitation.
On the day of my schedule for Brazilian wax, I was served by a very nice accommodating Malay therapist. She was kind enough to note that this was my very first experience in Brazilian waxing. She explained to me carefully what she will do for the treatment.
Here is how the procedure goes. The staff would offer you this cute black & pink rubber slippers to wear. Then they will hand you a towel and usher you to their bathroom for a wash or rinse . Once you are ready, they will lead you to one of the rooms.
In some cases, a trim may be needed but sometimes, it is not necessary. They would apple a baby powder on the area. Then the hair removal will commence. They would use a warmed pink wax and spread it the area using a flat stick. The therapist would asked if the wax is too hot. Once the wax hardens, the therapist would strip it off from the skin in a very swift precise manner that minimises the pain and discomfort. You can feel that the wax pulls the hair and not the skin so no much pain or any note of bleeding. Therapist would even give you their pink cuddly cat stuff toy to hug if you feel pain. But it wasn’t really needed because the pain score for me was 1/10, with 10 being the most painful. After several hard wax in and hard wax off, the area would be almost hairless. The little hairs would then be removed by application of blue wax then a thin cloth paper would be placed unto the blue wax and the little hairs would be stripped off. This procedure is much less painful at this point than the hard wax. And to totally remove 100% of the hair, sometimes tweezers are used to remove the remaining stubborn hairs. You are left with a silky smooth skin.

Pink Parlour started in Singapore in 2005. They soon become well-known in the grooming and waxing arena for women and men to feel good about themselves from hair removal using waxing or IPL treatments, spray tanning, whitening, nail treatments and brow & lash tint.

After the session, make sure to avoid hot showers, swimming pool, sauna or jacuzzi for the next 48 hours. I also apply Pink Parlour Bump Freedom Lotion and Pink Parlour Calm Protect Lotion. They contain wonderful ingredients like Tea Tree Oil that protects and heals the area. In the next few days after the waxing, make sure to exfoliate the area when bathing. Hair regrowth starts around 3-6 weeks and it is time to book your Brazilian Wax session.
