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 […]

Waxing during Pregnancy

Spring is in full swing (at last!), One Born Every Minute has been back on the telly (if you were brave enough to watch it) and I’m so happy to announce the arrival of my baby niece, Arianna! So ladies, I thought I’d get down to the nitty gritty of waxing during pregnancy and cover […]

Exciting news… we’re moving! And I have a FRONT DOOR!

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 […]

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?

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 […]
