QQ Nail Spa's staff of nail-buffing technicians treats clients to pampering services that improve both their cosmetic appeal and sense of well-being. A manicure (a $10 value) sculpts digits into tidy shapes so that customers will feel attractive while scratching and sniffing stickers. The pedicure (a $22 value) polishes toenails to a high sheen before applying a fresh coat of cuticle paint. During the latter treatment, clients rest atop a massage chair that eases them into a state of relaxation normally reserved for caterpillars with the foresight to fill their cocoons with memory foam.
Eyelash Parlor Lavilash’s owner, Kiki, found inspiration for the business in her own beauty routine, which she squeezed in between triathlons and martial-arts classes. That was in 2005, and Kiki had already accrued more than six years of experience performing eyelash perms and teaching the technique throughout southeast Asia. Her business plan quickly came into focus. She opened a studio devoted to infusing eyelashes with a curl that lasts four–six weeks through weather and hard wear, dispatching with the need for daily mascara application and damaging mechanical curling or extensions.
The procedure is surprisingly similar to a salon visit. After the mild perm cream coats eyelashes, a silicone roller—chosen from a collection of 42 options—shapes the eyelashes into arcs ranging from demure to diva, and a complimentary collagen treatment conditions each tendril to a high gloss. Kiki works with a team of technicians to safely create new looks and correct unsuccessful perms perpetrated by other salons. She also teaches the method to professional aestheticians and lay folk hoping to streamline their own makeup routine.
Featured in Women’s Weekly and Harper’s Bazaar, Browhaus is an international chain that imbues faces with minimalist aesthetics while expertly forming brows into fetching face buffers. Having trained for eight weeks in Singapore, the skilled staff of brow architects deftly adds sleek sheen to frontispieces of women and men. Each eyebrow-shaping thread and tweeze ($20) works to achieve the most flattering shape for arching disdainfully. In addition to sporting brows that are cleaner, shapely, and defined, an upper-lip threading ($7) removes unwanted fuzz and paves the surface for dashing milk mustaches.
The techs at Classic Brows practice an ancient hair removal technique using twisted cotton threads. Aside from threading away pesky hairs on the face, the staff also weeds unwanted body fuzz using warm wax or a tiny push lawnmower. They also embellish natural eyelashes with extensions and tints, perform head massages, and administer facials that soothe and purify pores. The salon’s service menu further beautifies human hides with black and brown henna tattoos.
