Stripping Off My Dirty Little Secret

If you told me that I’d be modeling, catwalking or even deejaying a few years back, I’d laugh in your face and tell you that it won’t happen in a million years. But let’s say that my life somehow made a 360′ turn and I ended up doing all the three and I’m no longer the person you know 2-3 years back. Funny how life turns out, eh?

Anyway, my teacher cum personal image consultant, a catwalk coach and designer Kos Serani told me something during one of our catwalk and grooming class. We were discussing on how one should dress up if my memories serves me right. He told me that less is more and never wear clothing that shows your cleavage and legs at the same time. To look attractive and classy, always go for clothes that reveals legs only or cleavage only and not both. A sensible advice, as to reveal both legs and cleavage at the same time does make you look like quite a tart.

The advice is forever etched in my mind, and from then on, I only choose clothing that is either modest and cover up, or dresses that only show off my legs. Why do I opt for legs? Well, apparently that’s because I’m very petite and there’s no change of me showing my cleavage and looking attractive. I’m afraid if I were to opt to show my cleavage, I’d be called a cute schoolgirl instead of a beautiful woman. So yes, legs it is.

Problems? Well, yes. I’m not exactly blessed with completely hairless leg and I need to shave or wax whenever those tiny hairs started to grow.

I shave and wax my legs regularly, but I do have concerns whenever I visit waxing salons, which is privacy and personal hygiene.

A friend highly recommends Strip, Ministry of Waxing to me and I thought I’d give it a shot.

Strip, the Ministry of Waxing, has apparently launched a drive on “No Double Dipping” via it’s “Dirty Little Secrets Exposed” campaign quite some time ago where it’s main goal is to bring awareness to the public that there are hygienic waxing practices, which should always be performed in hair removal salons and this includes:

1. Using a new disposable razor for each customer.

2. Ensuring each customer receives a fresh towel.

3. Making sure all therapists are gloved up during treatments.

Disposable wax kit. The kit looks rather cheeky;it’s all wrapped up in colourful foil and at first glance, one could easily mistake it for a giant sized condom.

Individual treatment rooms is available for your waxing pleasure.

I decided to wax my legs and here’s me, taking a deep, deep breath while my therapist gets her tools ready to wax me.

Applying the sticky stuff to my legs. It’s pretty hot, but it’s nothing I can’t handle.

Stripping off the hair. I exclaimed ‘ouch’ a few times but the pain is not unbearable, and I’m grateful for that. My legs has always been sensitive and I think my therapist did fairly a good job in waxing me without getting me to scream like a banshee. Observing my therapist, I must say that she did practice all of the personal hygiene code set by Strip, and I’m happy to report that I’m very satisfied with the service and will definitely make revisits soon.
