Part lingerie shop, part luxury waxing, Strip opened in 2005 with the aim of making hair removal a treat rather than just another thing to cross off on your to-do list. Today they have six branches across London with decor that is closer to a boutique hotel than a beauty salon. Clients can pick from signature chocolate, lavender or berry hot wax with matching, themed interiors and relax in a boudoir pad where they can lie back, relax and watch their favorite dvd. The specialist waxing therapists are trained to the highest level and are armed with the best waxing products for all skin types and a complete knowledge of the full waxing A-Z, ensuring a virtually pain-free wax. This includes scrupulous hygiene, a speedy yet thorough approach and the ability to put clients at ease, all in an opulent and comfortable environment. The treatment list is detailed and includes waxing for mums-to-be and an ‘athlete’ package for men which leaves barely a hair on the body. Strip also offers non-invasive, medical grade, pain-free laser treatments for a variety of conditions, including sunspot removal and thread veins. Strip has been voted No1 waxing salon in the UK and have won accolades from Glamour, Harpers Bazaar and have a huge array of celebrity and industry devotees.

"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."
