In their funky Britomart location, OFF Wax & Laser and ON Brow House take the ‘serious’ out of seriously smooth skin, one happy customer at a time.
A stellar local example of the ‘beauty bar’ phenomenon that has swept the globe, OFF Wax & Laser and ON Brow House – winner of Metro’s ‘Best Wax’ award every year since 2009 – is open at Britomart.
OFF prides itself on being the antithesis of a spa or beauty salon, with a ban on ‘whale music, serenity water fountains and lotus flowers’ and a dedication to completing the task at hand with zero fuss and maximum professionalism. The atmosphere is anything but clinical, with chic black-clad staff, great music and a relaxed, welcoming vibe.
FROM BRAZILIAN WAX TO MALE WAXING
The Britomart location has dedicated waxing rooms designed to maximise the end result and the experience and a barber-style brow bar, armed with a true arsenal of brow-shaping techniques and products. When you book in for a ‘Brow Wow’ shape you won’t be just getting a quick tidy, you’ll be emerging with a whole new frame for your face.
The salon offers four waxing rooms and three brow stations, but their focus on specialisation goes one step further. The waxing team consists of true specialists in their three departments – brows, female waxing and male waxing – these are the people who trademarked the ‘Brozilian’ .
Adding to its impressive menu, OFF also offers high-tech laser hair removal at its Britomart salon. OFF founder and owner Nicky Shore says the Candela machine the salon uses is the first of its kind in New Zealand and provides the most effective, fast and safe service for all skin types. “The results are second to none. This is the Rolls Royce of laser hair removal,” she says, “we were never going to just dabble in this – we’ve committed to the very best. The difference in power, results and client comfort between this and other machines is phenomenal.”
