Emilia Fox


Waxing isn’t exactly the most enjoyable beauty treatment, in fact, we dread it more than trips to the dentist. 

But after stumbling upon the Strip waxing boutique in Chelsea, we’ll no longer dread those paper panties – especially as each room includes a flat screen TV, the perfect distraction.

All of the treatments use Lycon wax, which helps to reduce the pain by attaching only to the hair,and not the skin. The range includes chocolate-hazelnut, lavender and sparkly gold. 

The more adventurous punter could even try the Bollywood, where coloured gems are stuck to your private parts in various shapes – sounds like something burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese might try. 

Once you’re done, you can reward your newly-Braziliane'd self to some sexy undies – Elle Macpherson, Calvin Klein and Stella McCartney all hang on the rails.  

Prices start at £10
