Waxing never comes easy. Even though we can lie in bed at night and pray to our fairy godmothers to remove the hair easily and without pain, it seems she is busy granting other wishes. Some people are incredibly lucky in that waxing is so painless they look forward to the hair-ripping part of the treatment, while the rest of us practice meditative breathing and try to focus on how silky smooth our skin will be afterwards. Luckily for us wooly mammoths, Hong Kong is a thriving city with so many experienced and international salons that we are spoilt for choice when it comes to a pleasant waxing experience. BloomMe has gone the extra mile and compiled a list of the best 5 salons in Hong Kong to get a wax:
A first-class unisex waxing salon, Lavar Premier specialises in almost pain-free Brazilian waxes and pampering before and after the treatment. With two locations in Central, Lan Kwai Fong and Queen’s Road, Lavar will have you feeling smooth as a seal and as relaxed as a seal basking on a rock. And that’s pretty relaxed!
Their staff are highly trained and super friendly, and will talk through with you exactly what they’re doing and how to make yourself most comfortable. Hint: remember to breath during a wax. One of their trademark characteristics is their imported scented waxes. Flown in first-class on a velvet pillow from Europe and Australia, these fancy waxes will also smell delicious and leave no sticky residue behind. The most popular are the chocolate, strawberry, and rose which are, coincidentally, the three key ingredients to a good date. Each wax has it’s own benefits and caters for different people: the chocolate is used to soothe and moisturise the skin (best for those with sensitive skin), the strawberry will help to reduce redness and is best suited for those cheeky areas, and the rose which is infused with chamomile will rip up those stubborn hairs with minimal pain.
Best of all, Lavar offers top quality manicures and pedicures. Why not get your whole body polished before your hot date tonight? Or bring your date along too, it’ll be an unforgettable date when you surprise them with matching Brazillian waxes.

BloomMe Loves: Full Leg Wax- $400
10 years, 3 salons, and over 1 million waxes. That’s a lot of nude people.
Nude Waxing first opened it’s doors in 2007, and since then has continued topping lists for waxing and other beauty services. With a strong focus on service over sales, you can expect expert advice without the possibility of commission hanging above your head. With so many years of experience, Nude Waxing has seen it all and waxed it all, so this salon is a perfect place for first-time waxers. If it is your first time waxing, remember to ask the friendly staff about before and after care to get the most out of your wax.
Also offering the cheeky Brazillian wax for women, Nude Waxing also offers Back & Shoulders waxing for men. This treatment is not as popular with men (although sometimes it should be), men’s waxes at Nude Waxing will be fast, efficient, and pretty relaxing for all parties involved. Even their wallpaper is a soothing colour, so that when you lie down on that treatment table you know that you’re in for a treat.
After your wax, consider getting a cheeky lash tint to finish everything off. Just because you’ve removed hair from your body doesn’t mean you should neglect the hairs left behind!
Services Offered: Massages, Facials, Hair Removal & Brow Shaping
Address: TST, Causeway Bay, Lan Kwai Fong
