Busy. Busy. Busy. And welcome ROBYN to Madame Wax!

Hello you lovely lot! Sorry you haven’t heard from us in a while, it’s been go GO GO here! Plus it took us a while to recover from our fabulous party (can’t think why). Massive thanks to those who made it happen and big hugs to everyone who came along to celebrate the opening of […]

Common waxing courtesies

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 […]

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 […]

Madame Wax Recommends – Outback Organics Gold Wax

Those of you who follow me on either Twitter or Facebook will know that earlier this week, I undertook a little training course to brush up on my male waxing knowledge. The course I took was with Andy Rouillard, who is an all round darling. And he’s not just a pretty face either, because he […]

Madame Wax Recommends – Perron Rigot Wax

Those of you who have visited my salon may have asked me in the past about which wax I use. And you will know that I have been an enthusiastic user of Perron Rigot wax for quite some time. So I just had to write about why. For me, the French brand has been the […]

Red Nose Day 2013

It feels as though the whole world is going wax-crazy for charity this week. This is a Good Thing. This morning, I heard Vassos Alexander get his legs waxed on the Chris Evans Radio 2 Breakfast Show (the actual waxing takes place about five minutes before the end of the programme if you want to listen […]

Madame Wax on the Radio!

This week, I took a tiny step towards fame. No, you wouldn’t have seen me on the red carpet at the Oscars (one step at a time eh?). Yesterday, I was lucky enough to be invited onto the Jason Mohammad programme on BBC Radio Wales to talk about – well, yes you guessed it – […]

It’s Snow Joke

Guess where I am right now? I’m actually standing next to my wax pot, spatula at the ready. Where the heck else would I be? Well, if the news/Twitter/Facebook are to be believed, I should be at home, under the duvet having a ‘snow day’. Seriously. The thing is, I happen to love my job […]

Waxing Pet Peeves – Laziness

Why do people go to get waxed? To remove hair obviously! Well, you’d think it was obvious but sometimes I have my doubts. I’ve lost count of the amount of salons I’ve visited where I’ve had a leg or bikini wax, the therapist has finished, I’ve checked and there’s still hair! That’s plain laziness. It’s […]

New Year’s Waxolutions

Happy New Year to all my clients and readers of this blog! I hope you had a great festive period and that you’re all raring to go in 2013. I know that I am. Lots of people seem to poo-poo the idea that a new year means a fresh start, but I am not one […]
