Newbies: Wellness & Self Care

A guide for teachers and their families new to WAB / Beijing

Hair & Spa

  • West Hair Salon - go here for children and adult haircut, colour, highlights (and head massage! after the hairwash).  Reasonable prices.  WAB staff get a discount.  Some stylists have more English than others but so many expats use this salon that they have a lot of experience with western hair, including blonde hair colouring.  The one at Europlaza is large.  A small one has recently opened at Pinnacle Plaza as well.  Not as good as Europlaza though
  • Red door tailoring - VERY popular lady based in Shunyi. Contact her via wechat
  • Dragonfly SPA (The Grand Summit) - massage, nails, waxing, facials.  Clean, professional, popular franchise.  Not the cheapest but lovely experience.
  • There are also come-to-you massage, waxing, facials and nails services for when you don't feel like going out but need some unwinding. You can make a booking through wechat.
  • Bobby Du is at David Z down in Sanlitun. His Wechat is Bobbydu. He is a great hairdresser lots of Wabbies use.

Gym & Fitness

  • Some staff use the Adrenaline fitness room at WAB before/after school for free. Great space with all you really need for a full body workout.
  • Staff can also sign up for Spin class at WAB Dome, Yoga and Pilates after school.  
  • A mindfulness room is available at WAB for bookings and a small group meet there to do short group practice each Tuesday mornings. 
  • CrossFit gyms - Maquanying and near Capital Paradise
  • Human Motion - gym at Cathay View Plaza near BJ Riviera
