Wahanda tried and tested:  Hollywood Waxing at The Waxing Suite

Finding the perfect bikini wax can sometimes be almost as difficult as finding the gold at the end of the rainbow. We know waxing down below is essential, so I decided to check out north London venue The Waxing Suite based at Dappa Boutique, to see if it really was as good as the reviews suggest...

The venue

Gorgeously unique, this retro-style salon was a simple five minute walk away from Chalk Farm tube station on the Northern line, so still nice and central which is always handy. Even though I walked past The Waxing Suite at first because I couldn’t spot the venue sign, once I was in, I fell in love with the random hodgepodge of hair salon one side, and vintage clothes stall the other. Another plus point is definitely the late opening times, closing between 7.30pm and 8.00pm on week nights, so it’s great to pop to after work for your regular maintenance wax.

Quirky and different, the atmosphere put me at ease instantly as I was welcomed in, and I only relaxed further once I met my experienced therapist Alison.

The treatment

I had signed up for a Pain Free Hollywood Hot Wax and although I was slightly apprehensive before I arrived, the very lovely Alison soon put me at ease. Having years of professional waxing experience behind her meant I felt in safe hands as she performed the treatment in an incredibly speedy 15 minutes.

I found the hot wax a lot better than strip waxing – more effective and less painful – with the added bonus of being chocolate flavoured! All in all, it was short but sweet and for a maintenance treatment, it was completely ideal – let’s face it, no one really wants to linger on their bikini waxing.

The results

Normally when people say ‘pain free’ and ‘Hollywood waxing’ in the same sentence, it involves a large amount of eye rolling and sarcasm. However, I was pleasantly surprised by my experience, as it was virtually pain free, and where the treatment only lasted a quarter of an hour, it’s not like it went on for long enough to cause me any problems. I was really impressed by the results and would definitely recommend The Waxing Suite to anyone wanting an efficient treatment delivered by superb and polite staff.

Hollywood not your style? Why not sample a Brazilian at The Waxing Suite...

Being a rather nosy and curious person means that I am always intrigued by new treatments, products and places, and I always enjoy trying out new things. As a Copywriter here at Wahanda, I've definitely picked up a few things about the massive variety of beauty and wellness treatments available, but with such a vast array of choice, there is always more to sample and learn about!
