"Maria-Louise Featherstone and Danielle Featherstone-Price are sisters who founded strip Wax Bar in 2005, revolutionising the UK’s waxing experience in the process. Having worked beauty for many years, they left no stone unturned to perfect an area of beauty they knew to be badly neglected: The British beauty market in the early noughties was far behind Australia and America which had a far higher standard of waxing, with less pain involved. Spotting a gap in the market, they set about excelling in waxing, running salons around the UK, starting in trendy Notting Hill, and expanding to have six salon-boutiques at high-end locations in London, as well Loughton, Essex.
As word spread that waxing should be 'a treat not a chore', Strip gained an enviable reputation with celebrities, including Victoria Beckham, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Ellie Goulding, Sienna Miller and Emilia Fox. strip’s therapists are trained to the highest level, and are armed with the best waxing products for all skin types to ensure a virtually pain-free wax. This includes scrupulous hygiene, a speedy yet thorough approach, and the ability to put men and women at ease - all in an opulent and comfortable environment. Each boutique offers a range of sought-after lingerie, swimwear and athleisure-wear, alongside results-orientated skincare. strip has revolutionised the industry, becoming the leading hair removal specialist and an iconic, luxury British brand."
