Waxing in Leeds – Where to Go & What to Get

· Emma Cooke · Style

From Brazilians to BSCs, here’s where to get a wax in Leeds. 


Waxing

Whether you’re taming your facial hair or going all out with an intimate wax, these studios are on hand to sort you out.

When it’s done right, waxing is virtually painless and it certainly has plenty of perks. Not only is it quick, but it’ll leave you with silky smooth limbs for up to two weeks because the regrowth is wonderfully slow – and even when the hair does come back, it’ll be softer and less noticeable than before. But where can you get one in Leeds and what sets each salon apart? We’ve got the answers…

Millie’s

Millie's

If you’re on a budget and prefer organic products, head to Millie’s. This beloved health store and beauty studio uses Australian Bodycare tea tree wax for their strip waxing treatments, which cover facial, body and intimate waxes. Alternatively, you can upgrade to a hot wax to reach each and every hair. They may be cheap and cheerful, but you’ll be well taken care of, with aftercare lotion and personal advice to help you avoid ingrowing hairs.

Millie’s, 109 Vicar Lane, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 6PJ. Facial waxes start from £5 and body waxes start from £9.

Waxed Off

Waxing

Waxed Off caters for both men and women. They use hot wax and strips by Perron Rigot in their smart studio on Meanwood Road, just two miles from Leeds city centre. Intimate waxing is their forte here and it’s available to everyone. From a Hollywood to a Manzilian wax, they do it all, plus all your usual arm, chest and leg waxings. It goes without saying that if you’d just prefer a trim, you can always go for a body clipping or manscaping service.

Men are welcome too, so why not pop in for an ear, nostril and brow tidy or go for a back waxing treatment? You’ll find their little studio on Albion Street, and believe us when we say, their low-lit treatment rooms feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of the streets below.
