    Hi Preeti,

    Hi radhika, and teddy..

    Thanks for posting in this old thread..:)

    By now, I have visited quite a number of parlours and picked a few..:thumbsup

    Normally, I would frequent the parlour for my threading! and occasionally for facials/ hair cuts..

    Here, the first difficulty I faced was threading, because in many parlours they said they would do eyebrow waxing.. I was really scared and never opted for it! and in some they do plucking with tweezers! Both these are bad options (acc to me). One lady even suggested that all her customers do eyebrow shaving??!!:spin

    Then, after a bit running around I found a lot of parlours do threading for the eyebrows!! (What a relief.....)

    Usually the places I frequent are Brickfields, Klang, USJ..
    In Brickfields there are lots of parlours and they do good.
    Klang, recetly met a North Indian girl doing threading on the second floor near Restoran Chat Masala.
    USJ, Neetas Herbal does good threading, by far the best for me! and nearby house too..
    Subang, Jovees Parlour is also very good, but slightly expensive?!

    For Facials, Neetas and Jovees again and an aunty near my home who does marvellous facials.. I really felt the skin glow for 2+months..

    So, where have you all been ladies? Share your experiences..:cheers

    Reg the charges:
    For eyebrow threading they charge between RM 6-RM 8
    Hair cuts : Normal Trimming - RM 10 -RM 15
    Facials : Depends on what facial and mask - RM 50- RM 150
    Hair-do: RM 20-RM30

    The Funniest I have seen is they do "Saree Drapping" in all these places for RM 20-Rm30!!!!:rotfl:rotfl

    Hi Preethi I think this is no way connected to beauty parlour, but i have a doubt regarding the reflexology ( i think they call it like that only,but im not sure). Keeping our legs in a tank full of fish. Will it give good effect? Will the fish bite us, will it be painful? Can u please tell me about it if you know?

    hi mickeymini...

    In a nearby place, they call it Fish Spa :) or "Dr.Fish Therapy":rotfl

    Actually the concept is to allow the Fishes to bite the dead cells out of our feet; it cleanses; gives us a re-vitalizing experience.. Liked it a lot when I did it the first time.. It really feels nice and clean and cool..:thumbsup Like you have done a pedicure-like- stuff.. And its very popular in Malaysia, you can see this everywhere!:cheers

    Here comes the most important information: Certain states in US have banned this, saying it is unsanitary.. The water/ fish or whatever.. Their view is all people get inside the same water tank, put in their feet etc. and the sames fishes nibble at all feet.. So, it is unsanitary!!

    But worldwide, it is popular in Hakone, Japan, and in Umag, Croatia China, Belgium, the Netherlands, South Korea, Singapore, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Hungary, Slovakia, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Hong Kong, Bucharest and Sibiu (Romania), Madrid and Barcelona (Spain) , UK and France.

    My personal opinion: Check the water, if it is clean, and if you find a shop that is sanitary; believe and just try the fish Spa.. :thumbsup

    It's not painful..I found it ticklish the first 10 mins...Laughed my guts out..We should all do it together someday..Didnt find a huge difference after I got it done, or prob didnt have the patience to wait hours at it.
