Women in Singapore have been getting waxed at STRIP – Ministry of Waxing for over 16 years, and it doesn’t look like we’re going to stop anytime soon! The pioneer in vulva care has been known to celebrate the practice of grooming, reassuring women that we don’t have to keep our Brazilian appointments a secret, and instead embrace our love for Vajuvenation. STRIP abides by their mantra of Hygiene, Speed, Quality and strict no double dip policy – so cleanliness is definitely priority here! Studios are bright, stylish, and fun to visit. A Brazilian wax takes just 30 minutes, while a comfortable IPL Brazilian takes about 50 minutes. We also love the complete range of post-treatment products, ideal to keep your lady parts smooth and bid goodbye to ingrown hair. What’s more soothing than ice cream?
How much: Brazilian wax priced at $62, IPL Brazilian 6-Session Package priced at $1200.
Blush has been specialising in hair removal services for ladies since 2008!

With two salons in the heart of Tokyo since its opening in 2009, NUA recently expanded to offer its professional wax, facial and beauty treatments in Singapore! It’s quickly become a must-visit beauty stop for local stars and models, so we know it’s the place to get every beauty treatment for face and body. Besides their amazing facials (which our editor happens to love!), NUA also offers wax and Depilar System (DPL) hair removal. Only the highest quality hard wax is used for their waxing services, and it’s ensured to be gentle on all skin types. You’ll also be offered an add-on hair removal gel that can applied right after waxing to reduce hair growth significantly faster, compared to just waxing alone. If you prefer a laser treatment, their medical-grade DPL hair removal services are available for a faster hair-free result.
How much: From $30 for underarms waxing and $37 for bikini line waxing. DPL rates available in store.

NuE Shape has been providing solutions for all skin, body and hair removal needs for over 10 years! Nestled among the hustle and bustle of the CBD, it’s the perfect spot for a quick stress-free getaway from the office. Mamas looking for a better alternative to waxing and shaving can try out their new painless hair removal technology, the iMAX Hair Removal system. Targeting areas all over the body (from small areas such as the upper lip, navel, fingers or toes to larger areas such as underarms, chest, back, arms, legs and bikini line), the system transmits pulsed light at specific wavelengths which disables the hair follicles by terminating the hair bulbs without damaging the surrounding skin tissue. The procedure is fast and painless with no downtime or side effects, and you can expect permanent hair reduction with enough sessions!

We’re sure you’ve heard us rave about Sugar(ed), the first and only dedicated professional body-sugaring studio in Singapore. The studio specialises in Brazilians for her and offers additional body sugaring options for both men and women. If you’ve never heard of sugaring, it’s an organic and all-natural hair removal method that dates back to Egyptian times. Using a warm, pliable paste of sugar, honey and lemon, it’s gently spread onto the skin, grabbing onto hair from the roots and flicked off in (not against) the same direction of hair growth to ensure little to no breakage, and lessening the formation of ingrown hairs. Facial sugaring takes just about 10 to 20 minutes per area, while Brazilian/Manzilian sessions can take as quick as only 20 minutes! Sugar(ed) recommends customers to return for a session every two to five weeks, the optimal time to extract hairs and eventually reach permanent hair reduction. With their new Katong outlet, now East Coast mamas can get on the sugaring train too! They also often offer discounts or even free sessions for customers who are willing to get sugared by their trainees.
How much: $25 for ladies’ underarms ($30 for men) and $65 for first-time Brazilian ($90 for men), includes Complimentary Mud Treatment.

This laser and IPL specialist offers both for hair removal; they say that one session of their “Vanishr” painless hair removal system is equal to 100 IPL sessions, and is particularly effective for coarse, dark hair and for people with darker skin tones. Meanwhile, one of our Sassy Mama team members gives Only Aesthetics a big thumbs up for the effectiveness of its IPL treatments; after six sessions she no longer has any underarm hair! And as a bonus you pay a [surprisingly reasonable] lifetime fee that allows you to return if your hair should grow back.
