Inevitably, that fateful day will come around, and try as you might, you can’t avoid it any longer: it’s time to get a wax. Ouch! Some people like to front and say they feel no pain, but they’re liars. It’s painful. It’s. So. Painful. But! As slaves to fashion and beauty, we find ourselves back at the salon again, and again, and again. Fortunately, our city offers a wide variety of clean, professional waxers who won’t laugh when you cry.
Spa Soul Space - this newer spa is located just by the Manor in Nyarutarama. They use sugar wax, which is a bit different: after application, the beautician waits for it to dry, then picks it off with her fingers. It’s quite effective, but a bit more time consuming. It’s fine... until you’re in one of those sensitive areas.
Serena - the beauticians here will definitely do their best to get you into the most calming of environments before they tear your hair out, and thank God! They use hot wax and work quickly and efficiently, doing a thorough job. Of course, it’s going to cost you.
Umubano - my personal favourite, this no frills wax gets the job done, and fast. Janine or Frances are the best, so ask for either when you arrive. Hot wax, tiny space, no shame, 1-2-3, done!
Serenity Spa - a friend of mine goes there religiously, but I found the beauticians to be a bit too rough. Still, Beatrice did a lovely job on the eyebrows, though it took some time. Their prices are good and their salon clean.
