"Hi Kate, I was a customer with you when you were working for Brazillian Wax Express and have been looking for you ever since. My name is xxxxxx, i doubt it if you will remember me. I could not find another waxologist who made me so comfortable and at ease. I was wondering if you are still in Auckland and have a studio here. Wherever it is...I will come there....I just dont want anyone else."

VN, Auckland 16/8/13

What a cute place, and I had an expertise wax here more importantly. Liking. sharing and recommending :)

Lucy W Miramar

Hi Kate, just to let you know I'm GUTTED you have left us in Auckland, you were THE BEST! But seriously, wishing you all the luck in the world as you expand Strip Wax Boutique in Wellington xxx

H D, 15/6/13

I'd never been brave enough to wax before, but was sick of shaving. I am now a convert. Kate put me at ease instantly & the results are totally worth it! I can now cross Brazilian wax off my 'things to try before I turn forty!' Thanks to the wonderful Kate of Strip Wax Boutique, Wellington, for putting me at ease!

Sarah L

I've been going to Kate for a number of years now and there is no doubt in my mind she is the best in the business. I've tried and tested other waxers which were painful experiences to say the least! Strip provides a clean, quiet and rather beautiful environment. The waxing process is quick and painless and is all over before you know it because your so busy chatting away you don't have time to realize your getting waxed! Keep up the fab work Kate!

Mei K, 27/2/1

“It’s hard to find a wax salon you can trust. Strip was recommended to me by a friend, and now I know why – the treatment I received was just perfect!”

Belinda, Glenfield

"I just had my first brazilian wax with Kate last week, and I was so pleased with the

result! She told me it probably wouldn't be as bad as I imagined, and she was dead

right - it was nowhere near as painful as my first experience elsewhere.

I'm booking in for the next year."

Rachel, Birkenhead

"Strip was a real find. Every other place on the Shore just seemed too expensive, or plain grim! And the setting is beautiful, so peaceful. Thanks"

Alyson, Birkenhead

"I've known Kate for years, and had my full waxing regime done by her when I was travelling in New Zealand recently - she was just awesome, as she always is, and I can dare to bare again. Highly recommended therapist and amazing value for money. Thanks Kate x"

Sara, London

"I was so nervous before my brazilian wax, and Kate really reassured me. She made me feel totally comfortable, and even had me laughing. I will be back soon"

Grainne, West Harbour

"I'm a total newbie but wanted a brazilian wax for ages. I'm so glad I plucked up the courage to do it. Kate was great, it was quick, almost over and done within minutes. I wish I'd done it years ago!"

Leanne, Milford

"Highly commend Kate's work, she did my full back in 20 minutes, no mean feat. All for $35, an absolute bargain"

Peter P, Birkenhead

"Strip Wax Boutique is my beauty find of 2012, it takes so long and involves lots of trying, to find a good beauty therapist. Kate is the best, thanks and don't move EVER!"

Denise W

 "I can't believe how quick this wax was, and how clean it was too. The owner is very thorough, and it was sweet, there was no hair left, she did a great job. And it was only $30, awesome."


"Best wax in Auckland. I paid $70 for one at a supposed top of the line salon, and it was crap next to this one. So keep up the good work and aroha!"

Tameka M

"I just wanted to write and let you know how pleased I am with the wax you did yesterday. And to thank you for being so nice and putting me at ease. I am passing the word on, and will see you next month."

Donna B, Glenfield

"Thanks for the fantastic value and expert wax."

Alexis DeVries, Remuera

"This was precise and quick. The premises were very nice, and the owner was really considerate"

Frank O, Northcote Point

"Hey kate, just a quick message thank you for the advice these last few months, the ingrown hairs are rapidly fading and I feel like i am finally getting on top of this problem. I really appreciate your time and care xxx"
