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!)

  • 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 .

  • 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.

  • Honestly the best intimate waxing in London. Quick and as pain-free as it’s gonna get. My favourite therapist is Luciana – she’s such a pro and makes the whole experience easy and stress-free.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • Amazing hot wax as always! I’ve been coming to Strip for ages now and even though I’ve moved away from the area, I always make the journey because it’s more than worth it for a top class wax and as pain free an experience as a hot waxing can be. All the staff are always lovely and welcoming. Thanks ladies!

  • Best waxing experience I’ve ever had! Martina was wonderful and the products they use are amazing and make a really comfortable experience. I’m a customer for life.

  • Absolutely amazing wax with Martina today. The whole experience from Terri on reception to the treatment was fantastic and I cannot recommend this salon enough. Having recently undergone extensive surgery for Crohn’s disease, I was nervous for my first wax in a few years and Martina was just amazing she listened to me and made me feel totally relaxed and in safe hands. The wax they use is fantastic and you barely feel a thing. Can’t wait to come back!
