The New Beauty Consumer

The success of the men’s beauty market is hard to track since a good portion of what the consumer buys is unisex. Men have always been interested in haircare and shaving. However, with the taboos slowly dropping, a growing number of men are using variety of beauty products and their interest in (aesthetic) treatments is increasing.

At Strip we value equality and we pride ourselves on giving excellent customer service at all times. All our treatments are tailored to individual customer’s needs in order to make your visit as enjoyable, quick and painless as possible.

We are very well aware that finding the right place for a comfortable treatment can be difficult so we met with our regular, James Barley –  35 year old London based blogger, specialising in mens lifestyle and photography. We talked about beauty industry, lifestyle choices and why is Strip his go-to grooming destination.

Where do you think male grooming is heading to in the next couple of years?

I think this depends on what age group are we talking about.

In my age group 35+ is all about maintenance; not trying to look too young and not trying to get ready for a grave just yet.

It’s about making sure that I look good at the age that I am by looking after internal as well as external. So making sure my diet is up to scratch, making sure I drink enough water and most importantly making sure I don’t have those stray hair growing from my big bushy eyebrows, ears and my nostrils. (laughs)

You recently visited Strip. Could you tell us a bit about your experience and why you chose Strip?

I went to Strip because I was in need of some help. I’ve foolishly gone to a local salon near my work – it was just cheap, easy and more convenient than heading to town. But I didn’t like what they’ve done so I made sure I got myself a pre-holiday appointment at Strip.

What I really appreciate about Strip is that they give you a genuine, honest answers. So they put my mind at ease (I felt one brow was a bit shorter and smaller than the other). They kind of filled me with trust, which I think it is really important when you’re getting that intimate with somebody and especially when this somebody is going to define they way you look.

On top of that it is so easy to book appointments online, go in and just get the service done. Oh, and the staff is really nice and the conversations are always pleasant.

Would you consider any aesthetic treatments, such as micro needling, laser hair removal, etc? 

Yes, I would definitely consider those. I think the micro needling sounds the most appealing because I like the idea of rejuvenating aspect of it. I fell that I am now at an age that all these years that I’ve spent on the sun in my early 20s was probably a massive mistake. Trying to get tanned probably damaged my skin and I want to try to reverse that and really take care of myself.

Would you recommend Strip to your Friends?

DEFINITELY.

  • 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!!

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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 .

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!
