Even though this global chain has roots in Singapore, Strip’s first stateside location clearly understands its busy New York clientele: A complete Brazilian ($55) or, for brazen dudes, Boyzilian ($110) is over and done with in 15 minutes flat. Considering that even seasoned vets need to pop an Advil (or Valium) beforehand, first-timers—referred to here as "virgins"—get plenty of hand-holding, with an aesthetician walking them through the process via an illustrated Brazilian-waxing storybook. Newbies are also provided a squeeze toy to relieve stress and can buy their own ($7) for repeat visits. If full-on depilation isn’t your style, Strip offers hair removal for other apelike zones both standard (eyebrows, $22–$25) and surprising (nipples, $10–$15). To soothe skin postwax, grab a calming tube of anti-inflammatory Ice Cream ($34) or reward your epidermis of steel with Malin + Goetz body products such as Bergamot Body Wash ($18) and Peppermint Body Scrub ($30).
