Waxing is a delicate operation – you're dealing with sensitive areas and hot products, not to mention the fact that you don't want to be pencilling in your brows forever after because some overzealous beauty therapist went wax-happy on your face. It goes without saying that a good waxing establishment needs to be hygienic – that's a given, but diplomacy and skill are also essential.
If you're in the need of some post-wax relaxation, you may want to visit one of our favourite bath houses and spas. Or maybe you just need a quiet beverage, in which case check out our guide to Melbourne's best bars.

The perfect little boutique if you’re in the city and need a quick strip before a night out. Their prices are very reasonable (yet they use the highest quality wax) and you can book online – full marks for convenience. Careful if you go after 5pm though, as the front door is occasionally locked as a security measure, so make sure you have their number saved.
This salon uses organic waxing products that combine Lycon with neutralising and gentle ingredients that won’t anger the skin – including chamomile, lavender and rose. Their top brag is that they can remove hairs as small at 1mm, but we're equally enamoured by the fact that they have TVs in every room.
