Two summer words: pool ready.

Two better summer words: painless waxing.

Deliver yourself to Jean-Claude Biguine's French luxury this season, where an army of aestheticians are standing by to get you summer-ready, with pots of bejeweled nail paints; hydrating hair spas; and landscaping rituals (read body hair removal) that if you can believe it, are almost pain free.

This last blessing comes via their trademark French wax. Sure, it sounds frou frou – do you really need your wax to be French? Trust us when we tell you, YES! For one thing, we’ve tried it, and if you want textbook, it’s proven to lower pain and reduce in-growth. We love that the treatment is almost spa-like, involving no sticky knives or messy heating machines; just a smooth roller wax dispenser that glides across your skin. The Brazilian treatment hurts even less, and this combined with JCB’s force of skilled waxing experts, means you will be in and out of there in ten minutes. Is that the sound of the ocean we hear?

Note: Special summer incentives at JCB include arms + legs + underarms waxing for Rs 1,800 (usually Rs 3000); and bikini wax at Rs 1,500 (usually 2450). 

Keratin and Colour

Now that you’ve rid yourself of unwanted hair, let’s look after the mane you want to keep. The crew of hair stylists suggest summer make-overs, offering a Keratin service to tame your humidity hive at a flat rate of Rs 5,000 (originally around Rs. 8500); global hair colour at Rs 3,500 and highlights/Balayage at Rs 5,000 (usually around Rs. 4500 and 8000 respectively).

And just like that, your hair is left feeling smooth, hydrated and more than ready for your next Boomerang hair flip.

Note: Summer incentives are valid until 15th May 2019. T&C apply.
