Westies do not have to be stripped, it would cost money to have it done and costs more then just clipping. They can be clipped instead of stripped if you dont show conformation. You can also learn to do the grooming yourself or some people even like the natural shaggy look. Even left long and natural westies are very easy to brush and comb out and rarely tangle.
