You can remove unwanted hair quickly and easily with sugar waxing - a method that has been perfected at Whipped Sugar Wax and Body Scrub Salon.
This old-school waxing method is cheap, requires no heat or strips, and is as effective and less painful than conventional methods. The sugaring technique employs the use of a sugar paste or gel made from sugar, lemon juice and water. It is often credited as nature’s permanent hair removal.
It was my wife's first time trying out sugar waxing to remove unwanted body hair like those found in our underarms, and also to sculpt the eyebrows perfectly well by removing the excess or runaway hair around them.
Whipped is owned by Ms. Bing Fabi. They have three branches located at 3rd Floor, Ayala Fairview Terraces, 2nd Floor, Commerce Avenue Wing, Alabang Town Center and 2nd Floor, Eight Forbes Town Center. We visited the third one on May 17, 2016 for sugar waxing of eyebrow and underam for my wife.
Sugar waxing, or Persian waxing, is a method of hair removal that has been in use since 1900 BC. It is an old, tried and true way to wax, naturally. It is not as harmful as regular waxing because the sugar sticks only to the hair and not the skin. Sugaring is gentler to the skin and less painful than waxing. It doesn’t rip your skin off especially for those with sensitive skin.
"Why sugaring? It is 100 % natural and great for pregnant women or those with highly sensitive skin. It only sticks to the hair and does not remove the first layer of your skin (unlike all waxes). After a few sessions, sugaring drastically reduces hair-growth."
They have a list of services at their front counter containing the prices of each which we found very reasonable. It is noticeable that they have different prices for men and women as indicated by the two columns for each gender.
It's pampering time for my wife as she would be treated like a queen here at Whipped Sugar Wax and Body Scrub Salon.
There's the sugar wax contained in that cylindrical container. It's the orange-colored substance that would be used for both eyebrows and underarm hair removal.
My wife did say there was very little pain and it was very tolerable. Have faith with the salon attendant. You are in the best hands when it comes to hair-removal, so relax and be comfortable! Whipped has a team of highly trained waxperts who are well-versed in the art of sugaring.
Just how does the Whipped attendant does it? She scoops up some wax with her fingers remembering that the wax should be malleable but still hot/warm: not liquid. She then applied the wax to the desired location in the opposite direction of hair growth. This was for both eyebrows and underarm. You can see the entire process in the video.
Thank you to my waxpert on duty that day for servicing my wife. We will be back for more services as we plan to try out all their services on a regular basis, and we will share to you the experience. Maybe do a video of each visit so you'll have a video walk-through of the procedure. That's like being there yourself.
So stay tune to Wazzup Pilipinas for more Whipped salon services.
