I don’t know how many times I’ve walked past Wax in the City on King’s Road. I’ve lost count. It’s somewhere I’ve been curious about for some time. But for one reason or another, I’ve never given myself time to pop in. Until recently …
… when I paid it a visit for a press/bloggers evening. The irony about this place is that for some time now I’ve been trying to figure out an alternative to threading. With time feeling so precious at the moment, the fortnightly need to visit a threading bar is something I’d rather not think about. And this is where Wax in the City comes in.
Not only is waxing a monthly appointment but Wax in the City is actually a gorgeous place to visit. Both the upstairs and the surprisingly spacious downstairs with a dozen booths are stylish and great spaces to be in. There’s a sense of serenity that makes tidying up the eyebrows and other facial areas feel like quite a treat, as opposed to the very public experience of threading. It’s less painful too. A lot less.
All in all the great thing about the whole evening was that I went along thinking I was merely popping in for a look around. What I ended up discovering was a sanctuary that is going to make looking after myself a little bit easier.
