Lay Bare Waxing Salon is the brainchild of the 3 Hilario siblings — Fiona, Monique, and Paolo. All business graduates, their keen foresight and business acumen were honed from years of training from competitive business schools. 

Fiona Hilario is the Chairman of the entire Lay Bare Waxing Salon Chain. At the onset of operations, Fiona was the only one of the 3 siblings who went full-time in managing Lay Bare. Fiona’s strength lies in Human Resource Management & Policy Development. Prior to establishing Lay Bare, Fiona was a Human Resource Specialist for a foreign embassy.

Monique Hilario, on the other hand, oversees Training and Marketing of the brand. She took a course on Hair Depilation from the Center of Aesthetics Studies. She was a financial analyst for several years before participating in the business full-time.

Paolo Hilario is in-charge of Business Development and Information Systems Management. A techie at heart, he believes that the easiest and most powerful tool to communicate with clients is through the Internet. He was a Banker before working full-time in Lay Bare.


5. Unique services

Lay Bare Waxing Salon is one of the first hair removal specialists in the Philippines that uses all natural ingredients made of sugar, honey and calamansi (otherwise known as body sugaring). Its cold wax jelly eliminates the incidents of knicks, cuts or burns. At the same time, Lay Bare employs the patch technique wherein hair is removed a small section at a time, and thus decreases trauma to the skin.


4. Reasonable prices

Lay Bare Waxing Salon offers hair removal services at very reasonable prices. Services are affordable even for the simplest of clients!


3. Branch network

Lay Bare Waxing Salon is present in all parts of the Philippines and has branches in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Setting sight on the overseas market, Lay Bare’s initial foray abroad is in Studio City, Los Angeles, California.


2. Higher standards

Lay Bare values privacy, relaxation and cleanliness. It boasts of cubicles secured by wooden doors and with reclined beds to provide a relaxing experience to clients. Moreover, the salon’s Asian Fusion-inspired/Zen look is reminiscent of a spa where calming music filters the cubicles.

Hygiene is also highly prioritized. Lay Bare’s cold wax jelly is individually packaged; gadgets sterilized after each use. Gloves are used to administer services, and its staff is also trained to abide by the highest standard for cleanliness and hygiene.


1. Constant innovation

Lay Bare is constantly innovating the way it delivers its services, and is always ready to serve the needs of clients.

For one, it has become more interactive. Its website allows clients to apply for discounts, accomplish a branch feedback form and post a question or testimonial. In addition, one of its future platforms is that clients can maintain their accounts and view their transaction history.



It all began when sisters Fiona and Monique Hilario tried to satisfy their hair removal needs through the Metro’s range of beauty parlors. They experienced lengthy waiting time, uncomfortable beds, and the most trauma of encounters because there was no other alternative.

Frustrated with establishments that treated hair removal only as a sideline service, and therefore were not looking to improve their facilities, the sisters finally conceptualized a salon specializing on hair removal alone.

The concept behind Lay Bare Waxing Salon is a deviation from the mainstream all-around beauty salons. Fiona and Monique wanted to develop a “hair removal boutique model” where the salon concentrates on providing a full range of body hair removal services.
