Stubble, shaving rash, cuts and nicks are all set to be a thing of the past for the people of Leicester following Thursday night’s VIP launch of premier waxing salon, nkd ( ) waxing, which is now open for business.

From 5-8pm the wax strips were rolled out and drinks were poured, to welcome guests to the brand’s newest location in St Martin’s Square. Offering a range of high-quality waxing treatments for both men and women, the salon puts a new spin on what it means to get nkd.

Speaking of the new salon, Rebecca said: “Me and my team have put our heart and souls into making the nkd brand one that is trusted and respected in Nottingham and beyond, and we are thrilled to be offering our services to the people of Leicester. We have already had an incredible response at our launch party, and we are looking forward to meeting more friendly faces as we start this next exciting step of the brand’s journey.”
