Last week, I attended the Ministry of Waxing's Islington salon launch party.
Getting your punani pruned never used to be a pleasant experience. Then I discovered MOW and I'll never go back to the old beauty salon days. No more naff music, plastic orchids, Phoebe-from-Friends-lowered-voice, or posters of flawless women everywhere.
MOW is cool. Really cool. The salons look/sound/feel more like a Shoreditch nightclub than a beauty salon (but obvz more hygienic and with fewer hipsters). And the new salon didn't disappoint. It looks like the inside of a fucking spaceship, the staff are as brilliant as ever, and the delicious smell of the new coconut wax fills the entire building.
Enjoying the coconut and pistachio cocktails WAY TOO MUCH

Adored the special gifts for all attendees - a hand soap handcrafted by MOW founder, Cynthia
Follow the London Waxperts on Twitter (they offer 24/7 post-wax advice, and I THINK you get 10% off your treatment if you book on social media)
And watch the launch party video to find out more about the salon and for our top first timer tips (also, I'm featured in it so that's pretty cool. For me. And my mum. My mum will be proud):
