With a sophisticated clientele who seem to have a penchant for the bizarre, Singapore's beauty providers often go the extremes.
The most recent is the Fish Reflexology clinic, where clients' feet are exfoliated by tiny fish that nibble off dead skin -- a method traditionally used in the Middle East to treat skin diseases. The clinic says that over 2,000 customers have fed their feet to the fish. So the next time you visit this beautiful city-state, don't forget to pamper your feet!
Another popular beauty treatment is eyebrow embroidery. It entails plucking out the natural brows and drawing strands of hair back using a pen-like device that injects ink under the skin. Reportedly, the result looks more natural than a tattoo, and better than Mother Nature.
And if that sounds painful, several salons offer 'boyzilian' waxing. It is the male equivalent of the 'Brazilian,' where almost all public hair is pulled off using strips daubed in warm wax.
