Start as you mean to go on!

I want to start this blog by wishing all my customers a very happy new year. Whatever 2014 has in store for you, I hope it leaves you smiling, healthy and with a few extra quid in the bank! This year, like every year,  (once I’d recovered from my hangover!), I sat down on New […]

Thanks for a cracking 2013!

Is it just me or has this year run away with us? Crazy, isn’t it to think we’ll soon be ringing in 2014? 2013 has been a brilliant year for us here at Madame Wax. I’ve especially loved all the work we’ve been doing around marketing – I’ve taken time out of the salon and […]

All I want for Christmas is…

Well, obviously the list is endless, you know me…. I’ve narrowed it down to some of my top picks though and here’s what I hope Santa’s going to be kind enough to bring me this year. 1)   Decleor face wash I can’t live without it. My face would actually crack in the salon if it […]

The first ever wax show

Last weekend I attended the first ever wax show in Reading. It was fantastic. Not only testament to Andy Rouillard’s (Axiom Bodyworks) and Mat O’Marah’s (Waxing for guys) superb organisational skills but it was a brilliant opportunity to network, share the latest stories from our salons and listen to some fab speakers. There were some excellent […]

We all love to know the right way to behave in given situations, don’t we? It’s safe to say there’s some nice, straightforward etiquette worth following in the world of waxing. I’m here today to give some top tips on ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ pre, post and during a wax appointment. You owe it to us to be as […]

Baby it’s cold outside…

But come rain or shine here’s why we think you ought to keep up your waxing in winter It’s definitely colder out there now, isn’t it? September usually means slow cooked casserole suppers, dialling up the central heating thermostat and burying ourselves under a blanket on the sofa after a hard day at work. But […]

DIY waxing

The current age of austerity has brought with it many millions of ways for us to save money. The notion of do this, that and the other yourself has dominated glossy magazines and the internet for months. But when it comes to your waxing, is this something you really want to try at home? Cost savings […]

No pain no gain?

Madame Wax confirms it doesn’t have to be all about pain for fuzz free gain. In a recent interview in New York, Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that best celeb pal Cameron Diaz holds her down every time she has a bikini wax. Bit extreme perhaps? That said, for the uninitiated, the mere thought of a Brazilian […]

Madame Wax Recommends – Vaseline

There’s no school like the old school, and I’m a big fan of so-called old-fashioned products when it comes to my beauty regime. I’ve already blogged about my love for Sudocrem (which Sudocrem the company loved by the way!), so here’s another love of mine – Vaseline! Yup, that’s right, the Vaseline petroleum jelly that’s […]
