Going for a wax often feels like a chore rather than a luxury, but Strip is a salon that turns that feeling upside down. Strip has specialized in hair removal since 2005 and now has five outposts in London, so it’s an art. If you’re sick of razors, these are the people you need to see.
The Soho salon has four luxury treatment rooms as well as a selection of skincare, swimwear and lingerie available for sale so you can really show off your waxing results. In addition to the opulent decor, the bedrooms have beds that can be raised and lowered so you don’t have to contort yourself in an odd half-waxed position, and they also have TVs to distract you if you really find yourself. the treatment that bad.
Strip uses Lycon hot wax, so it’s as painless as a wax can get. Not only can it remove short hairs, but it peels off, which means there is no tearing, so trust us when we say it barely hurts, and there is has no sticky residue or redness once you’re done. You are also in good hands with the therapists; they’re efficient but thorough and super cool, so it’s not awkward when you are chatting while your lower regions are exposed. A simple bikini waxing takes a few minutes and if you get the bundle you can get in and out in about 20s, and you can’t ask for much more than that.
