Underarm waxing

Due to my usual waxing place is full , I did my first time underarm waxing there before my wedding day. The environment is just so so and the waxing is not very clean, left with a few here and there. The therapist is also not very friendly.

Fast Eyebrow Threading

Eyebrow threading is the fast method of eyebrow grooming. It takes about 10 minutes to get your eyebrows threaded.

Rupini's is an affordable place to get your eyebrows threaded. Their branch at The Central is less crowded than their other locations. The ambience of this branch is cleaner and nicer than that of Mid Point Orchard. So basically, you write your name down on the list and state what treatment you would like. Once it is your turn, the lady will call out your name. Then you sit down on the salon chair, and the lady will dust some powder on your threading area. She will ask you to hold your brow area taut for a more precise threading. The actual threading process is painful. My eyes sometime tear up because of the discomfort. The lady will also trim the ends of your brows if it is too long. After the threading process, she will give a cotton pad of rosewater to ease the redness. My sensitive skin tend to be very red after threading. It takes about 1-2 hours before the redness subside. Also, I noticed that my brow area tend to breakout after threading. Since then, I have stopped threading, and have found alternative brow grooming methods that are less harsh on my skin. Threading is fast and affordable but it might not work for all skin types.

Also, the threading treatment in Rupini's could be more hygienic such as clean the brow areas before threading and to not use the same puff to apply the powder for the customers.

Worst service in the world

Please do not go to the Holland Village branch worst service in the world. And does a crappy job! I won't suggest it even if it was a free service.

Wouldn't recommend central branch

Regular at rupini for eyebrow threading at race course and midpoint orchard. Skills and service are usually average to good. I wouldn't recommend anyone to go central branch because I had a bad experience with the lady named sandy. Did a bad job on my brows and claim that my brows were already that way.

Lack of staff

Lack of staff at Midpoint Orchard. Long queues with only 2 staff working on the last Saturday that I went there. One staff was doing a hair treatment for a lady while the other lady was doing a facial for another lady in one of the rooms. That leaves... no one to do eyebrow threading for any of the girls! I waited over an hour for my turn and that was after I repeatedly asked them approx how long do I have to wait since the line was not moving AT ALL. Imagine, no therapists doing eyebrow threading?!?! One by one, the girls waiting in line in front of me slowly dropped out. They definitely lost a lot of customers that day.

When I finally had my turn, eyebrow threading was not done properly - one eyebrow had a higher arch than the other and was shorter than the other. I was extremely irritated and I made that known before leaving the shop. What happened to all the regular therapists at Midpoint? They seemed to have gone to different outlets!!!

Had a breakout on my forehead after a treatment

I think Rupini's therapists are generally good and they do know how to create nice brow shapes. But I'm not comfortable with the application of rose water on the brow area right after the treatment..the way they went about doing it didn't seem very hygienic..I had a breakout once on my forehead after a treatment, but not sure if it's because of that.
