Peripheral beauty treatments that take care of the nitty gritty
BEST BRAZILIAN WAX BRAZILIAN WAX (ALL OFF) $78 for 60 minutes, STRIP
No one does it quite as quickly, safely and light-heartedly as STRIP when it comes to Brazilian waxes. For one, the fun décor puts one at ease, but that’s not to say they treat hygiene lightly. They never double-dip their waxes and work swiftly, but accurately, to keep discomfort in the nether regions at a minimum.
BEST BROW CONSTRUCTION BROW RESURRECTION - CLASSIC $1,294 for 90 minutes, Browhaus
With this treatment, you can confidently declare #IWokeUpLikeThis. A consultation with a brow specialist, who understands that no two eyebrows are the same (not even your own), ensures that the brow shape and colour is customised to suit your face shape and features. They uphold the highest standards when it comes to hygiene, with medical grade tools that are disposed of after every use. Realistic hair-like strokes are created to blend in seamlessly with your own brow hair to give your arches definition and fullness.
BEST BROW GROOMING ERABROW DESIGN From $50 for 20 minutes, Erabelle
If you’re haunted by bad memories of overplucked brows, know that you are in good hands with the therapists at Erabelle. Each brow artist has undergone rigorous training to understand facial harmony and will map out a brow shape to suit your facial features, before proceeding with the eyebrow embroidery. The technique involves embedding micro pigments in the topmost layer of skin, using soft shading techniques to create fuller-looking brows.
BEST EYELASH EXTENSIONS KOREAN VOLUME EYELASH EXTENSIONS From $168 for 90 minutes, Dreamlash
A good eyelash extension boils down to a few things: The quality of lashes used, and the technical and artistic skills to design a look that enhances your eyes. More often than not, people assume more is better, and end up with thick caterpillar lashes that overshadow their eyes, and make them appear smaller. The lash technicians at Dreamlash use soft lashes that are 0.1mm thick. The lightweight lashes lift droopy eyes and balance out wide-set eyes.
BEST EYELASH PERM ULTRALASH LIFT TREATMENT PERM $68 for 45 minutes, Avone Beauty Secrets
Blessed with length but not the curl? Give stick-straight lashes a lift with a lash perm. Much like perming for the hair, lash perms use chemicals to soften lash hairs, before moulding them into an upward curve. Lashes also appear longer when they curl upwards—a truly eye-opening act.
BEST HAND & FOOT CARE BASTIEN’S DUO From $300 for 75 minutes, Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio by Bastien Gonzalez
Give your hands and feet an A-list treatment with a ritual designed by the king of pedicures himself, Bastien Gonzalez. Nails on hands and feet are treated to some TLC that includes cleaning, cutting, shaping and buffing to help them look their best. This is then followed by a tension-busting leg and foot massage that improves circulation—you’ll walk out feeling light on your feet.
