Pregnancy Waxing: Biggest Myths Debunked

We hear a lot of crazy *facts* about hair removal services – who can and who can’t have certain treatments, times of the month you supposedly should never get a bikini wax, and that waxing can apparently give you wrinkles? Not sure who came up with that one, but your collagen is definitely in good hands at Strip.

However, one we regularly hear, that definitely needs to be addressed, is that you “absolutely shouldn’t” get a wax while you’re pregnant. Keep reading to hear Strip de-bunk and dispel the most common myths surrounding pregnancy waxing, and finally put any concerns you have to bed.

Myth 1: It’s not safe to have a wax when you’re pregnant.

WRONG. A regular question we receive at Strip is whether women can have wax treatments, specifically intimate waxing, whilst pregnant. The answer? Absolutely! You can continue to book in for your wax appointments throughout your entire pregnancy.

There is no evidence to suggest that waxing during pregnancy is at all unsafe. At Strip we use Lycon, which is perfect for you expectant mothers as it moulds to your curves, whilst also protecting your skin.

Myth 2: Women aren’t interested in getting waxed during pregnancy.

WRONG. Many women are still very interested in keeping up their beauty routine during pregnancy, no matter how far along they are, especially as shaving is often a no go during pregnancy. Not just because shaving causes ingrown hairs and disrupts your ‘hair cycle’, but the further along you get in your pregnancy the harder it is to reach that precious area!

Plus, there is nothing wrong with preparation! Just like you prepare your hospital bag, your route to the hospital, many women like to get beautified before they give birth, and for many that includes getting waxed down there. And why shouldn’t they? At Strip, we’re all about personal choice, whether that’s going au-natural or completely hair free, we’re here to help.

Myth 3: Waxing is WAY more painful when you’re pregnant.

WRONG (ish). Lets face it, waxing is never a completely pain-free experience. And your skin can be more sensitive during pregnancy due to all those hormonal changes. But at Strip, our expert therapists can minimise pain dramatically, using our wax and service which is specifically designed for expectant mothers.

We are here to prepare and pamper your intimate area up to a week before the pushing begins and can even provide custom wax blends for each individual guest. We also have superior quality beds which can be adjusted to support tummies of all shapes and sizes.

So, the truth is simple: there are no risks while waxing during pregnancy. Other than the skin maybe being slightly more sensitive, the rest is 100% safe!

  • This place is awesome. Every time I’ve come they have offered top notch service. They make me super comfortable, they are beyond friendly, and the wax is done to perfection. All of the Strip locations are great but I think the City location is the best for customer service and friendliness. Highly recommend everyone go here for!!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • Got a Brazilian here and it’s the most painless waxing experience I’ve ever had. Also very good wax job, and she really made me feel relaxed and comfortable too… which is not easy when you’re half naked getting waxed! Will def go back.

  • 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!

  • 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!
