The nkd ( ) Difference
What sets nkd apart from other beauty salons?
We’re waxing experts.
Our specialist skills mean that your nkd wax will be quicker, cause you less discomfort and give you better results than a wax from a generalist beauty salon
We also offer the latest lash & brow treatments with the same level of specialist skill and advice
nkd – we use our experience to enhance yours
nkd ( ) was founded in 2009 with a very clear mission – to provide high-quality waxing treatments to men and women in a professional and clean environment. We particularly specialise in the delicate art of male and female intimate waxing, so from Brazilians and back waxes to Hollywoods and half-leg waxes, at nkd ( ) waxing we’ve really have seen – and done – it all.
Our first salon was located in Nottingham city centre. We started life in a tiny groundfloor unit in Bridlesmith Walk. In 2015, we moved to our current Nottingham location of 27 Pelham Street, NG1 2ED, which spanning three floors, has given us the space to now have four treatment rooms and four lash & brow bar chairs.
In October 2017, we were thrilled to open a second salon in Leicester city centre. 6 Silver Walk, St Martins Square, LE1 5EW also has the luxury of three floors, in which we house 5 treatment rooms and two lash & brow bar spaces.
Find Your Perfect Treatment
Brazilians, Hollywoods, Las Vegas’s — you name it, we wax it. Even if it doesn’t have a name, nkd Nottingham and nkd Leicester, which are the cities’ only dedicated waxing salons, can wax it for you. We wax half legs, full legs, over arms, underarms, straight bikini with your knickers on or absolutely everything off. And we mean everything.
We firmly believe with the saying that your eyes are the window to your soul, which is why we offer the best Lash & Brow treatments available on the market today from our in-house Lash & Brow Bars. These include HD Brows, Henna Brows, Lash Lifting, eyebrow waxing and eyebrow threading, and lash & brow tinting.
We specialise in the delicate art of male waxing. Whether it’s your back, your back, sack & crack, or simply your brows you want waxing, you should call nkd first.
As the only salon in Leicester and Nottingham with such a comprehensive male waxing treatment menu, you’ll soon realise that we’re also the best.
What our clients say

Very professional and friendly service. I would highly recommend this place for other dudes in need of maintenance. They appear to genuinely care and provide a very good aftercare service. Thanks again!
- Richie Phillips2nd November 2019
Staff are great. Place looks great. Price is fair.
- Darren Attewell14th November 2019
Excellent service, first time visiting very friendly staff who make you feel very comfortable. Would highly recommend nkd.
- Jon Booth28th February 2020
This was my first wax with Caitlin and I would not hesitate at all in booking a future wax with her, or in recommending her to other clients. She delivered a flawless wax, in a highly professional manner, immediately putting me at ease and then engaging in friendly social conversation. What more could you ask for!
- David Potter9th January 2020
Sarah was very professional and friendly. She understood my needs and fears as it was my first time. Sarah quickly reassured me and she was fantastic from start to finish. I have booked another two appointments because of Sarah and will continue to do so.
- Jordan C9th August 2019
Really nice and professional. The girls made me feel as comfortable as possible and are so friendly! I thought it was slightly pricey when booking the appointment but it's definitely worth every penny, the best waxing experience I've had.
- Richard H14th August 2018
Expert friendly service in pleasant clean and comfortable surroundings, all of the technicians are supremely skilled, considerate and approachable. This makes a visit to NKD a pleasure rather than a chore. I am happy to recommend NKD to anyone who wants the best
- Sharni H21st August 2019
NKD feels different from other beauty salons as soon as you walk in the door. We all know that getting your bits out in front of a stranger can be a scary thought but the tongue-in-cheek branding and friendly atmosphere makes you feel at ease straight away, especially when compared to far more clinical or spa-like salons. This is the same for the staff, who are all excellent at what they do and really welcoming.
- Dawn G25th August 2019
You make a much better job of my waxing and tinting than anyone else that I have ever been to. The ambience and syle of your salon is way above any of your competition.
- Emily D1st September 2019
Paige was my therapist and was brilliant. I was SO nervous as it's been very painful when I've had waxing in the past but she put me at ease, the whole thing was over in 20 mins and it wasn't anywhere near as painful as I remember. Would recommend.
- Aletta D7th September 2019
I am a trans gender woman attending NKD. My waxing is experience, is clinically undertaken by Venesia. She is very though and personable, I am very impressed with her care in waxing me and in the communication skills she processes. NKD are very fortunate to have her as a member of staff. I was so impressed, I have booked my next waxing session with Venesia. As a trans gender woman, it is so important to be treated as a woman by other women. Venesia does this, we talk about make up, holidays and I feel able to confide in her about my transition.
- Hayley K8th September 2019
The staff are very calm and helpful. I feel very at ease when I attend for my wax. The wax is of a very high quality and is not as painful as previous waxes I have experienced. I have been waxed by three different ladies now, and all have been so helpful and very experienced. I cannot recommend them enough.
- Sam H11th September 2019
All of the staff are really friendly, they make me feel welcome when I arrive and comfortable during my treatments. The salon is beautifully decorated, it has a lot of character and they send the most hilarious emails about updates and new products. They have a good sense of humour which is reflected through their signs and information posters in the salon, emails and great staff. I think they have a strong identity and I wouldn't go anywhere else whilst I'm in Leicester 🙂
- Kym S21st September 2019
Nicole was amazing at helping me feel relaxed and confident on my first intimate wax. She was at ease with me and was very efficient. The whole thing was a lot less painful than I thought it would be and afterwards I felt so great! Can't fault you!
- Malachi E22nd September 2019
It's was a great place with friendly staff and a relaxing environment. The benefits are great and they really know what they are on about. Don't think I want to go anywhere else.
- Michaela RM28th September 2019
Caitlin was amazing. I'm a regular waxer at NKD but I was very anxious about my upcoming wax as it was my 1st treatment after having my son. I think she could tell I was nervous as I was rambling throughout the treatment, but she put me at ease and made me feel relaxed. NKD staff are all lovely and very welcoming, they make everyone feel special as soon as you walk in the salon. I definitely recommend them to everyone!
- Ysa L10th October 2019

I heard about you through my cousin who usually visits you. Sarah did my waxing for me. She made me feel really relaxed and comfortable.

I will definitely be recommending friends and family.

Always walk in and given a friendly welcome and big smiles. Very chilled and always something to chat and have a laugh about.

Kerby was really friendly & took a lot of time & care whilst doing my treatments.

- Ruby-Mae C4th April 2019
As a wax virgin I was a bit nervous but my therapist Emma made me feel really comfortable. She was professional, chatty and always checked I was okay throughout. Also, the online booking system was really simple and I loved that I could book in early evening time as I could come after work. Finally, as a new guest if I rebooked after my first treatment then my third treatment is free which is amazing!(10/10)
- Loretta D5th April 2019
My therapist was very professional, friendly, and explained everything she was doing and why. She did a great job, not a hair in sight. It was the most pain free wax I've ever had. The lady on reception was lovely, and booked me in for my next sessions. The aftercare pack was a lovely touch, with my name on. It was great. Lovely to visit somewhere that specializes in waxing, rather than a back room of beauty salon.
