Moving to London and finding a great waxer wasn’t as easy as I thought. After a bad experience, it never hits you that finding a great wax salon and waxer makes all the difference in the world. You need a place that is clean, comfortable with wax/a technique that makes your waxing session as bearable as it can be. I have been hearing about Strip wax bar and thought I would try it for myself. With around five branches in the UK, I chose to visit the Notting Hill branch with the lovely therapist, Emily.
The Strip wax bar use Lycon wax and have a range of the coolest wax I have ever come across – everything from Chocolate, Berry and Lavender (and you can also choose which room you would like!) I was in the chocolate room and went along with the Lavender wax as it soothes and is easy on the skin. The salon was super clean, and the pain was practically close to none (have never had a less painful wax) and to top it off, my therapist, Emily was fab – she was professional and insightful. knew everything about waxing and even studied beauty at LCF! TVs and magazines are available in each of the rooms which is the perfect distraction!
