I’d heard about Wax in the City from friends long before I paid them a visit to receive my free pedicure worth R150 in December. Now don’t be fooled Wax, as I fondly call it, is not like other beauty salons that you’ll find in South Africa.
The salon which is based in the banking mall of Sandton City is an international company that has franchises in most European and Asian countries, which includes, Rome, Singapore, New York and even coming soon is their Cape Town salon.
The decor of the salon has a slight Baroque style about it with middle-sized chandeliers draping their retro ceilings where one can see the construct of the building’s air conditioners, etc. You’re treated to a warm welcome upon entry where upon you are placed in the cozy waiting area before your treatment commences.
Wax in the City is a members-only salon where you are treated like royalty from the get go. VIP member get their own exclusive lounging area and do not have to call in to book treatments as the company’s motto is that they will VIPs without a doubt and within the 10 min waiting period that is used a grace period as a VIP steps into the salon.
All the lovely ladies that work at the pedicure, manicure and waxing stations are all trained to carry out whatever treatments are needed by the members. I absolutely love the concept and signed up after my delightful manicure experience. Their full body massages are heavenly, and they even offer threading and tanning options too.
For those of you who like the idea of the tan can, Wax in the City is the perfect option, as they have three tanning rooms with huge tans and are all elegantly named according to some of the best island settings in the world i.e. Copacabana, Miami, etc.
So go on treat yourself and indulge in some treatments at you local Wax in the City. It’s sure to be the perfect gift to start the New Year off with 😉
