Say NO to Home Wax

Why you shouldn't home wax

We know that home waxing was very tempting whilst Strip was closed. And now that we’re back open, we want to remind you of the main reasons you should NEVER do your own wax.

  • It will be painful! At Strip we have a very particular way of waxing (which all our therapist are trained to do) which ensures the most pain-free experience possible. If you’re not a trained therapist, then you will not be able to do the wax correctly which will lead to more OUCH moments.

 

  • You won’t get the correct shape. Bush or mush? Your special area may look a bit disheveled after you attack it. Best to leave it to the professionals!

 

  • You could injure yourself. Yes, seriously! You could burn or bruise yourself if done incorrectly. And with all that working from home, sat in a chair all day, you really don’t want that area to be sensitive!

 

  • You’ll get inconsistent results. With no professional help to wax your chosen area properly, you could accidentally leave hairs in place, break the hairs and disrupt your hair cycle, which means a more challenging wax when you do come back in to see us.

 

  • You will get more ingrown hairs. If you are not pulling the hairs our correctly you will get more ingrown hairs appearing, which we all know are uncomfortable and an absolute pain to get rid of.

 

Need an alternative option for your bush or underarm in the mean time?

Terri recommends purchasing a bikini trimmer so you can keep your special area nice and neat during these winter months (until we can see you again of course!)

  • I could pay less than half the price at a local salon but always have my treatments done with you because you’re the best I’ve found. You always make it as comfortable as possible and I really, really appreciate your hygiene standards. The things I’ve seen at other salons make me cringe, but your therapists are meticulously clean. A touch of luxury helps make it a much more pleasant experience too! Thanks!

  • My fourth wax at Strip and as always a positive experience! All the ladies are so lovely, professional and knowledgeable, doing whatever they can to ensure you get the best results and have the best experience – I could not recommend Strip enough! Can’t wait to go back again!

  • Michaela is hands down the best wax therapist I have ever had. She literally is the best. I am never disappointed when my appointment is with her. She’s professional, quick and always does an immaculate job. I actually look forward to my appointments which is quite rare. I can’t recommend her enough!

  • Just had my very first Brazilian wax and was pretty nervous, but Isobel put me at ease straight away. I felt really cared for and it wasn’t embarrassing at all; and not anywhere near as painful as I’d feared.

    I’ve signed up for their special offer of 5 for the price of 4. Isobel has completely changed the way I think about waxing. Thank you!

  • This was my first Hollywood Wax and I was nervous. The reception staff were extremely helpful with my questions beforehand. Holly my waxing technician, was extremely friendly, helpful and really put me at ease. It hurt a little, but nothing to how I thought it was going to and it was over very quickly. Definitely will be coming back! Thank you to the whole team for a fantastic service!

  • I have been going to Strip Wax for years, and it never disappoints. They always do an excellent job, and make the experience as pain free as waxing allows. Staff are always really helpful, the rooms are gorgeous and they use great products. Would highly recommend.

  • As it was my first waxing I was quite nervous. There was no need to be. The staff were friendly and professional. Eva put me at ease by explaining everything. She did an amazing treatment, virtually pain free. Will definitely be back. Thank you Eva and all the staff .

  • I have been looking for a hair removal salon since leaving NYC. A lot of beauty salons use mediocre wax, however at Strip they use the proper black wax which is the best and most comfortable way to remove hair it is also super quick. Staff could not have been more friendly helpful and professional. I will definitely be returning to Strip!

  • Hands down the best wax I have ever had. This was my first time going to Strip and there was no pain whatsoever and it was over so quickly! I have very sensitive skin and am always in pain whenever I get a wax however, I had none of these issues here! Will 100% be back.
