Waxing For Men & Women
We specialise in all over body waxing for men and women. At our beauty salon in Victoria SW1, Central London and close to Pimlico, Westminster and St James’s, all of our waxing treatments are undertaken after consultation at the discretion of the beauty therapist.
At St James we use strip wax and hot wax. Strip wax is when a thin layer of heated wax is applied to the skin in the direction of the hair growth. The hair becomes embedded in the wax as it cools and is then pulled off quickly in the opposite direction of the hair growth, taking the hair with it. Hot wax is a recent invention compared to sugaring, it’s a lot more gentle on the area being waxed, excellent for underarms, bikini’s, brazilians and hollywoods.
Brazilian Waxing London
Brazilian waxing is the removal of body hair based around the pubic region. The Brazilian waxing procedure involves the use of hot or cold strip wax to remove the hair from the pubic region. The Brazilian wax generally leaves a thin strip of hair on the pubic area opposed to the Hollywood wax which strips all hair from the pubic area. This thin strip is commonly known as the landing strip. Brazilian waxing on average takes roughly 30 minutes and the waxing treatment is not generally painful, it should be a little uncomfortable at worst. The results can last from ten days to three weeks, with no maintenance, and there’s no shaving required during this period.
Hollywood Waxing London
A regular bikini wax generally removes the hair outside of the bikini area, whilst a Hollywood waxing is the removal of all of the body hair based around the pubic region. The Hollywood waxing procedure involves the use of hot or cold strip wax to remove all of the hair from the pubic region. Hollywood waxing on average takes roughly 30 minutes and the waxing treatment is not generally painful, but a little discomfort maybe felt.
