Shopping and Pampering!

10 April 2013

So as some of my regular readers know, I don’t blog regularly about matters concerning beauty but when I found a place that combined shopping and pampering, how could I not shout from the roof top, this possibly is the coolest most unique salon I’ve been to in a while.

Now the subject of waxing is never a pleasurable one, but a few years ago I discovered a different type of waxing that was actually considerably painless! No I promise I haven’t been smoking weed and I’m being completely serious!!! If you haven’t already discovered it yourself it's called Hot Wax and is an Australian wax that has revolutionised the world of waxing.

Hot wax isn’t the normal wax which yes is hot but is removed with a strip of fabric, this is removed on its own when it cools. This type of wax is considerably less painful and is utterly perfect for those.. erm.. Sensitive areas !!

At The Waxing Suite in Camden, the lovely Alison who owns the company came from the well known Ministry of Waxing and is extremely good at her job – believe me this makes a difference as well. I found the whole experience is amazingly pain free and to top is off the wax smells like chocolate!!! Her room is decorated beautifully with antique mirrors and lighting fixtures. The whole experience is a pleasure and for the more sensitive types you even get a stess-ball to squeeze at those painful moments.

 After your treatment you can browse the rails of vintage pieces from military jackets to pretty 1950s dresses and jewellery.

The salon is located opposite the Camden Stable Markets, which is the coolest place for a spot of weekend vintage shopping and chilling out, the stable markets are not be confused with Camden Market, which is some say a little bit more commercial. 

The waxing salon is called the Waxing Suite and is inside Dappa Boutique, which you can find here.
