Ladies, we all know that self-up keep can be very costly. Between getting your hair done, manicures/pedicures and the oh so necessary waxing, you begin to see dollars flying out of your pockets! If those things weren’t costly enough already, we’re learning that a London salon has implemented a ‘fat tax’ to charge shapely women more for their waxing services. That just can’t be right!
Getting your legs waxed is already a fairly unpleasant endeavor. But a London salon has reportedly made it that much more unbearable by imposing a so-called “fat tax” on its curvier customers.
The Sun reports that MM Bubbles, a salon in South Kensington that offers manicures, pedicures, waxing and body wraps, is charging customers size 12 and larger a fee of £5 (around $8) for a 45-minute leg wax. Women even larger (a size 18 and up) could be charged £10 more.
