Getting a wax can be pretty uncomfortable which is why the environment you’re in can make a huge difference. If you’re going to whip your hoo-ha out in front of a stranger, you want to know that you’re being looked after. Throw in some mood lighting, soft fluffy towels and a transportive playlist and suddenly it doesn’t feel quite so daunting.
On top of that? The most important thing is that we’re confident our therapist has the expertise to re-sculpt our lady garden in record time, with the least amount of pain.
Wondering where to start? We’ve rounded up the best waxers in London.
No matter your location, you’re ever too far from a Strip Wax Bar, with locations in Chelsea, Notting Hill, the City, Soho, Islington and Loughton. Waxing is their bread and butter which is why all therapists are trained to the highest level. Services are speedy, thorough and comfortable, which is why the waxing destination counts Ellie Goulding, Victoria Beckham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as fans. A basic bikini wax starts from £23.

A luxurious beauty destination in the heart of Mayfair, the spot has become a hit with beauty insiders, celebs and even royalty (hint: Meghan Markle). Alongside it’s legendary brow shaping and waxing, the salon also offers a wide range of body hair removal with bikini lines starting from £36.
