Beauty Establishment Review: Lay Bare Waxing Salon

We, ladies, have an "obligation" of removing unwanted hair from certain places of our body. Hair removal could be done through plucking, shaving, waxing and laser. Plucking is inconvenient. Shaving leads to darkened skin and chicken skin. Laser is expensive. Of these four, obviously, waxing gets the highest score. It's cheap and accessible. You have a choice of doing it by yourself or going to a waxing salon to have the hair removed. I'm more in favor of going to a waxing salon than waxing myself at home.

I have tried the services of various waxing salons. For this review, I will write about Lay Bare Waxing Salon


Lay Bare is, I guess, one of the fastest growing waxing salons in the country with 43 branches all over Luzon and Visayas. They use cold sugar wax -- no more burning hot wax and no more strips. Their services are affordable ranging from 100 Php to 1,500 Php. They also have packages from which you can choose from.
To guide you on this review: The only waxing salon services that I've tried are eyebrow threading and underarm waxing.
I have already visited three of their branches -- SM Fairview, SM San Lazaro and LPL Greenbelt. Of these three branches, SM Fairview and LPL Greenbelt deserve two thumbs up. The service crews are polite and you can feel that they are "experts" of their "field". They know how to shape brows and they are very patient in removing stubborn unwanted underarm hair. They leave your brows perfectly shaped and your underarms clean and smooth -- no unwanted hair left and no pinpoint wounds that are bleeding.

Let's talk about the remaining branch -- SM San Lazaro. I've been there twice and both visits gave me unsatisfactory results. That branch is the total opposite of the aforesaid branches. Service crews seem to be always in a hurry and their "finished product" isn't as good as that of the two other branches.

I would definitely go back to Lay Bare SM Fairview and LPL Greenbelt to avail of their services. On the other hand, surely, I won't give Lay Bare SM San Lazaro another visit.

  1. I just want to add that for the future readers of this article, Lay Bare LPL Greenbelt branch gave me a terrible service. The waxing technician was very unprofessional. They talk behind your back and you can hear them because the place is so small.

    1. I agree. The place is small but I had a great time at Lay Bare LPL. I'm so sorry to hear that. :(

  2. I've had my waxing sessions at SM Fairview when I still live in Bulacan but I had to stay in a condominium very near SM San Lazaro since my work place is quite far. I was very much satisfied with the service and the waxing technicians of SM Fairview branch. I had my expectations high when Lay Bare in SM San Lazaro opened and I was really excited since I won't have to travel far, but they suck. I actually hate the SM San Lazaro branch. Their service is not good, they sometimes don't even pluck after waxing even if hair are so evident! Plus, one technician actually glared at me. I swore to sacrifice some time just to go to SM Fairview and have my sessions there. I would rather face traffic jam than be repeatedly disappointed by their unfriendly waxing technicians and fail service.

  3. SUGARING is much better than waxing. It's less painful,less breakage,less ingrown hair. :)

  6. Di sugaring ang laybare, kaya nga waxing salon sila. They remove the hairs in the opposite direction. The real sugaring ang nasa barenaked.
