So that’s twice in a week I’ve got my kit off in front of strangers. The first was for my smear test (an absolute must by the way – if you’re due for yours, please get it booked in now) and the second was in the privacy and comfort of the Zero Fuzz Given salon in Chicksands, Shefford.
About Zero Fuzz Given
Owner Lauren (right), and Jodie (left), make up the Zero Fuzz Given team, and both are fully qualified in waxing and intimate waxing by the top three waxing trainers in the UK. Most people find one qualification enough but oh no, not these two. They’ve trained with all three, and cherry-picked the best techniques they’ve learned to really perfect their own offering. Lauren and Jodie will literally wax anything you want – from your brows to your toes. No hair is safe!
However their speciality is intimate waxing, and this is what sets them apart from your bog standard high street beauty salon.
And if you’re going to get an intimate wax done, I can’t think of anyone better than Lauren or Jodie to do it for you. They will immediately put you at ease and if you are in any way nervous or self-conscious believe me, there really is no need to be. They have seen it all – and I mean all – before.
Zero Fuzz Given began in May this year and welcomes both men and women through its doors. Many loyal clients have followed Lauren and Jodie from the previous salon they worked at. They also work in London, which helps them keep their skills bang up to date.
Lauren has had the loveliest studio built in her garden which is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It’s totally private, there’s free parking outside, and if you’re feeling a bit self-conscious about the whole thing, you won’t bump into anyone you know!
The treatment bed is super hygienic – no old, smelly, reused towels here – and Lauren and Jodie never ever double dip! (No, that’s not a rude thing, it’s when you use the spatula on a client and then put it back in the wax pot, potentially contaminating the entire pot – bleurgh!) They also use a very high quality brand of wax, so you won’t get hair snapping off.
I had my usual half leg with strip wax, hot wax on my underarms (I find it’s kinder to my skin than strip wax on this delicate area) and a high bikini (they always use hot wax for intimate areas).
Now I am a life-long waxer. In my opinion, it is a gazillion times better than shaving, especially when you have dark hair like me. The hair is removed from the root, so it takes longer to grow back and over time, the hair will grow back thinner too. The hairs on my legs are super fine now, which is brilliant.
For the intimate wax – even if you’re only having a high bikini – it is best if you’re happy to remove your underwear. Lauren is somewhat of a perfectionist and wants to get her lines perfectly straight! I felt totally comfortable with it – after you’ve given birth, there isn’t really any dignity left, is there?!!
According to Lauren and Jodie, lots of people are regular intimate waxers – men and women. We’re preening and pruning to keep those nether regions looking pristine. Think Hollywoods are out of fashion? Think again! A Hollywood (everything off) is Zero Fuzz Given’s most popular treatment. According to Lauren, “Once you’ve had it done, you’ll never go back!” She says her clients always feel amazing afterwards, and kind of sashay off the treatment bed with a new-found confidence.
While waxing is their main thing, you can also get your brows and nails done here too – Lauren is your go-to brow girl – and it’s always nice to get those finishing touches done to feel really polished.
Would I go back to Zero Fuzz Given?
Absolutely, without a doubt. Lauren and Jodie are so lovely, brilliant at what they do and passionate about it too. They are both mums and they understand the hang-ups we all feel about our bodies. You can even bring your little ones if you need to, there’s plenty to keep them amused.
I can tell that Lauren and Jodie genuinely love what they do and want to help you feel amazing.
If you visit Zero Fuzz Given, you’re putting yourself (quite literally) in the hands of waxing experts who will make sure they give you a first class treatment. And with these two, you’ll definitely be laughing your way through the entire process!
Thank you so much to Zero Fuzz Given for waxing me – I feel super smooth and am really happy with the results. I will be back!
