SALON SPY | STRIP SOHO

Going for a wax often feels like a chore rather than a luxury but Strip is one salon that’s turning that feeling around. Strip has specialised in hair removal since 2005 and now boasts five London outposts, so they’ve got it down to a fine art. If you’re sick of razors, these are the people you need to see.

The Soho salon has four luxe treatment rooms plus a curated selection of skincare, swimwear and lingerie available to shop so you can really show off the results of your waxing sesh. As well as the opulent decor, the rooms have beds that can be raised and lowered so you don’t have to contort yourself into a weird position mid-wax, and they also have TVs to distract you if you really do find the treatment that bad.

Strip uses Lycon hot wax so it’s as painless as a wax can possibly be. Not only can it remove short hairs, it just peels off meaning there’s no ripping, so trust us when we say it barely hurts, and there’s no sticky residue or redness once you’re done. You’re in great hands with the therapists too; they’re efficient but thorough and super friendly so it’s not awkward when you chat whilst your nether regions are on show. A simple bikini wax takes minutes and if you’re getting the lot off, you can be in and out in around 20, and you can’t ask for much more than that.
