London Salon Charging 'Fat Tax' On Leg Waxing For Anyone Size 12+

November 26, 2013 by Jenn Rice
shefinds | beauty

As if waxing wasn’t already unpleasant enough, MM Bubbles, a salon in London that offers nail services, body wraps and waxing, has taken it to a whole new level of pain. The salon is now charging customers that are a size 12 and up an extra 5 pounds (which is roughly $8)–and women that are a size 18+ could even be charged 10 pounds more (about $16 more!). Kind of rude and insulting, don’t you think? Especially since that is the equivalent of a size 8 over in America. According to a plus-size model that was sent into the salon by The Sun to investigate, the owner relayed that the “fat tax” is used for additional waxing supplies needed for the larger leg. “I know maybe for you it is not very nice, but I use more stuff,” the owner said to the model. We’re pretty sure that wax doesn’t cost that much more. We wouldn’t expect their business to be booming anytime soon after this whole ordeal.
