Wax on and Wax Off at OC’s New Pink Parlour

The buzz: The Pink Parlour waxing chain is already well known for its complete menu of hair removal services and even more so for its gaudy, boudoir-like premises.

The vibe: The interiors will either make or break your beauty session. If you’re the catty sort who likes a lot of black and pink, plush carpeting and blinding baubles, the décor will probably help ease you into getting waxed off. However, if you’re not into the whole Showgirls aesthetic, we suggest you opt for a more relaxing session, such as a facial treatment.

The facilities: This new flagship outlet spans over 1,500 sq. ft. of space divided into three private rooms, one cozy en suite room and even a couple’s waxing room (though we think this will be more popular with giggly girlfriends than straight couples, to be honest).

Why you’ll be back: The same reason why all the ladies go back to Pink Parlour despite it being so in-your-face—everything you need to pretty yourself up is available here, from waxing and spray tanning to body polishes and caviar hand treatments.

#03-19/20/22 Orchard Central, 181 Orchard Rd., 6238-1051. Open Mon-Sat 11:30am-9pm, Sun 10:30am-7pm.
