Who knew waxing could be anything but a chore? Strip Waxing Bar in Notting Hill is as sexy as it gets, and Victoria Beckam said so. And yeah, I'm an ex Spice Girl fan (I said EX!), so I tend to take everything VB says with arms and ears wide open. Ummmm....well, almost.
Notting Hill is full of these little gems, whether you're on the Portobello side, the Bayswater side or event the Westbourne grove side, it's all there for the pleasure of your little eyes. This one had me quite curious at first, since looking into the window of this mysterious looking place, I hardly knew what to make of it. Firstly, because I didn't know what they sold, wax, underwear, S&M props and trinkets??? So I walked in, with a LondonZest attitude- that means open-minded and positive in case you didn't already know. I already felt at home.
I booked an appointment, waxing that is, not S&M. The menu was stupendously cheap, with a bikini wax starting from £22. Along with the many variations of different waxing jobs, you could choose your wax flavour. As a provencal chick, I went for the lavender, and I must say I didn't know whether to bring it home as a candle or let the lady do her job. Anyways, the decor was even more appealing. Per usual the boudoir wallpaper and backgrounds always win me over, so that was that. The candles everywhere, the lovely ladies, and the variety of sexy lingerie inside the boutique, from Stella McCartney, Elle McPherson, Hanky Pankies and La Perla, you will never go hungry for anything else.
It's all there, the lingerie, the wax, the lovely scents, the experience. I wouldn't leave, so I booked my next appointment.
