Nude Beautique

With three locations across Hong Kong, Nude Beautique has been around since 2007. The salon’s top priority is service, so you can guarantee your wax will be almost painless and efficient. Its internationally-trained therapists are considered some of the most friendly and professional in town. Its waxing menu, which really is extensive, includes bikini waxes from $240 (you can also choose to add shape, body stickers or body tattoos for an additional charge) and threading from $150. The salon has an equally impressive list of services for men, so no need for the guys out there to feel left out. It also offers laser hair removal (new customers will receive a 50% discount on their first trial) which is FDA approved so you can guarantee it’s not only safe, but highly effective. You’ll need to book a complimentary consultation first, so a laser package can be tailored to your specific requirements. There are handy live chat and online booking functions on its website, making it as easy as possible to secure an appointment.

beauty hair removal hong kong dolmaDolma Waxing Boutique

Dolma is a bit of an institution on the Hong Kong waxing scene (and with very good reason), having built up a dedicated following over the past two decades. Her boutique promises a relaxing and comforting environment, with cleanliness as a top priority. So rest assured there’s no “double dipping ” here! It’s also reasonably priced, with bikini waxes from $250. You’ll pay $350 for a Brazilian, which the therapists can complete in a speedy 15 minutes. Plus you can get your brows sorted while you’re there, with eyebrow threading from $150.

beauty hair removal hong kong honeypotHoneypot

Honeypot has won itself a host of loyal followers across Asia since its first foray in Singapore in 2005, and now has salons in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Mongolia. It came to Hong Kong’s Central district in 2014, before expanding its presence here last year with a second, equally convenient location (this time in Causeway Bay). It offers a full suite of hair removal services from waxing to IPL and laser, but it’s its bespoke wax that really makes it stand out from the crowd. This in-house formula, specially created by certified Australian chemists using natural ingredients, is second to none and has helped its skilled Honeypot Kitties (the nickname it gives its therapists) really perfect the art of making the whole experience almost painless, which is something the award-winning salon prides itself on. Bikini waxes begin at $250 and a Hollywood wax is $440 (but for a limited time, new customers can book this treatment for the bargain price of $200 at its Causeway Bay store).

Honeypot Central, Room 802, Century Square, 1-13 D’Aguilar Street, Central, Hong Kong, 3564 8660

Honeypot CWB, 9/F, Unit A, Redana Centre, 25 Yiu Wa Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, 2803 5003, www.honeypot.com.hk

Freedas Limited

Freedas may be no frills but, with five locations across Hong Kong (including one in Discovery Bay), there’s a reason this salon is popular. If you’re looking for cheap waxing and threading, this is where to get it. Its therapists are certainly speedy, with one member of Team Sassy describing it as the fastest bikini wax she’s ever had (expect to pay around $270 for a Brazilian). And with upper lip threading from just $20 and eyebrow shaping from $30, what’s not to love! Just don’t come here expecting five-star service, but it definitely does the job.

Strip: Ministry of Waxing

With stores in ten cities across the globe (including Hong Kong, Singapore, London and New York), Strip: Ministry of Waxing has gained a reputation worldwide for making the process as painless as possible. You’ll even be given an animal stress ball to squeeze while your therapist gets to work. It has no less than seven different types of Brazilian (from $160 to $490), as well as waxing options for just about every body part you can think of. The salon also has an extensive laser and IPL menu.

Feel Good Factor

The Feel Good Factor has stood the test of time in Hong Kong since 1999, and with good reason in our opinion. Its friendly staff are sure to help you out if you need advice about any of its many hair removal offerings (which include waxing, threading and IPL). Its waxing starts from $60 for toes, a Brazilian bikini wax will set you back $450 and you’ll pay $180 for its eyebrow threading. For IPL, the salon has single sessions (from $400) or you can pay for a set of six (from $2,400) and receive one extra free.

Feel Good Factor, 2/F, Winsome House, 73 Wyndham Street, Central, Hong Kong, 2530 0610, [email protected], www.feelgoodfactor.com.hk

Sense of Touch

Sense of Touch has several locations in Hong Kong, including its five-storey flagship spa in LKF. It emphasises the high quality of its wax, which it says makes its Brazilian ($480) “almost painless”. It offers a number of waxing combos, which could save you money if you’re looking to have more than one area treated (e.g. you can get a Brazilian bikini with a half leg wax for $750). It also has eLase hair removal on its menu with prices starting from $650 for single sessions (first timers get 25% off), or $3,000 for a package of eight sessions.

Browhaus

The name is a bit of a giveaway with this concept store, so no prizes for guessing it specialises in brow and lash grooming. And with outlets across the globe (including in London, New York and Shanghai), you know it’s doing something right. All of its therapists have been put through their paces at its own Browhaus Training School, so rest assured they are highly skilled. It offers several options for basic brow shaping (with classic threading from $195, or thread and tweeze for $265), as well as colour tweaking.

The Oriental Spa Hong Kong

You can expect quality in luxury surroundings from the Oriental Spa at the Landmark Mandarin. While you probably don’t want to waste a visit here on just hair removal (try to squeeze in a facial or massage too if your budget allows it), it does offer a full waxing and threading menu. It’s worth noting it’s slightly cheaper to go on a weekday, rather than at the weekend. Bikini waxes range from $350 to $550 on Mondays to Thursdays ($380 to $580 from Fridays to Sundays).

The Oriental Spa Hong Kong, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, The Landmark, 15 Queen’s Road Central, Central, Hong Kong, 2132 0011, [email protected], www.mandarinoriental.com

Four Seasons Spa

The Spa at the Four Seasons is equally high-end (we recommend treating yourself to a manicure at its Nail Bar afterwards if it’s a special occasion). As well as a varied choice of massages and facials, it offers essential waxing and threading treatments. Again, it pays off to go mid-week so you can take advantage of the reduced prices on a Monday to Thursday (when bikini waxes cost $330 to $600, rather than $505 to $900 on Fridays to Sundays). 

Four Seasons Spa, Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, 8 Finance Street, Central, Hong Kong, 3196 8900, [email protected], www.fourseasons.com

The Ritz-Carlton Spa

To continue with the five-star hotel offerings, the Ritz-Carlton’s spa is another luxury hideaway, situated on the 116th floor of this hotel. It also increases its prices from Fridays through Sundays. But if you book a bikini wax during non-peak days (Monday to Thursday) it will cost $415 to $599, compared to $485 t0 $699 on peak days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).

3 thoughts on “Top Hair Removal Salons In Hong Kong: Where To Get Waxing, IPL And More

  1. Lavar has the worst customer service. They are completely fine until they have to deal with a complaint. First, they will ignore your issue for the longest time.The manager Rachel will raise her voice at you and the Managing Director Anna will refuse to apologize for their flaws.

  2. My wife and I recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary and had a romantic trip to celebrate coming up real soon. So while I was in Hong Kong for business I decided I would get some unwanted body hair removed via waxing.

    While searching online I came across this article on Sassy. I liked what I read about Nude Beautique and saw that they had a 30% off promotion for first time visitors. Seeing as I had never been here before (in fact I had never had waxing done at all anywhere before) I figured I would give it a try. I signed up on their website and booked an appointment. Because of the promotion I decided to have three body parts waxed. The three body parts had three different prices. For the purpose of this review I will call them the low price, middle price, and high price body parts.

    Upon arrival I was given the standard information form to fill out and then led to a treatment room. I was presently surprised with how nice the place looked. It was obvious they had taken great care to build an upscale facility.

    Once in the treatment room the lady performing the service advised that they wouldn’t be able to do the “middle priced” body part because I had some skin peeling in that area from a recent sunburn. I was told that once the peeling stopped to come back to get that part done. We proceeded with the other two body parts.

    The actual waxing session itself was about as good as can be expected. Waxing isn’t a pleasurable experience because of the pain, but she did a good job of making me feel comfortable. The whole session lasted about an hour and I headed to the cashier to pay and that is where it got bad.

    I was handed a bill that didn’t include the 30% off promotion for first time visitors. They adjusted the bill but would only apply the discount to the lowest priced body part fee. Ironically, that was the body part that I wanted waxed the least but I decided to get it done because of the promotion. The part that I went there for was the highest price body part. The lady at the counter made a phone call to a manager who refused to apply the discount as explained on their website. I tried to explain nicely that had I have known I would have never got the lower priced body part done and only done the high priced one. They didn’t care and there was nothing they were going to do about it. I felt so upset. I even explained to the lady at the cashier that they were taking a very good experience and turning it really bad at the end. She didn’t care. I asked for a manager but they said there was no manager in to speak with today and that she wouldn’t call her manager back. I paid and left. I won’t return on my next visit to Hong Kong.

    Based on how upset I was with all of the above I would have giving this place a rating of one out of five, however I chose to give it a rating of two because if it wasn’t for the horrible customer service at the end I would have given it a four or five.

  3. Whatever you do – do not got to Glowre! Bad service and terrible management. Laser hair removal treatment still not working after 8 sessions. Total waste of time money! Plus the most frustrating experience!!
