The best Sassy Mama secret beauty spots are up alleys, down side streets and high above the ground in old walk up buildings. They are pocket-friendly, convenient and super-cheap, and this is certainly the case when it comes to Freeda’s! The emphasis here is on affordability, so don’t expect a super lux salon experience when you walk in the door. Efficient service at groundbreaking prices is what Freeda’s is all about, and why it has a bit of a cult following amongst the expat and local Indian community. Eyebrow threading is a mere $30, which means no scrimping and saving to get your monthly grooming fix.
The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the staff are friendly and the service is speedy. Perfect for busy mamas! I’ve been going to Freeda’s since I landed in Hong Kong and feel like I’ve had a mini facelift every time I get my eyebrows done. The beauticians are all experts at threading and will have your eyebrows in tip-top shape in no time!
True, it’s not the most glamorous salon in Central, but when it comes to service and value for money, it’s top of the list in our little black beauty book! I usually return every three weeks for a top up… and give myself a pat on the back for being a savvy saver as I walk out the door. With five locations in Central, Wan Chai, Kowloon, Discovery Bay and Tung Chung, there’s bound to be one near you!
