10 Excuses to Not Get Sugared—and Why They’re Not Real

There’s no great excuse for not getting sugared.

Okay, guys. And girls. And everyone. Here’s the deal: no one enjoys getting the hair ripped off their bodies, but many of us do it anyway.

Why? That’s a good question.

For some of us, we just like the maintenance, and would rather tough it out for 10 minutes each month, than to shave every day. For others, it’s the feeling of smooth, soft skin that keeps them booking regular appointments.

If you’ve wanted to try getting sugared but haven’t yet, we dare you to come up with a viable excuse regarding why you haven’t.

Here are some of the excuses we don’t accept, because they’re not real:

My Pain Tolerance is Low

That’s okay, because getting sugared isn’t that painful. Yes, it will be uncomfortable, but it’s not as painful as waxing. Also, the sugar isn’t heated, so there’s no way to get burned. We also provide you with a squishy beaver (yep) to hold in your hand and squeeze to relieve tension.

Bottom line? You’ll be fine. Book an appointment.

I Can’t Fit in Into My Schedule

Yes, you can. We have 6 salons between Chilliwack and Vancouver, and we’re open later on certain days. You can do it—this is entirely up to you.

Book an appointment.

I’m Afraid of the Upkeep

What upkeep? You literally do nothing! We sugar you, and then you come back 4-5 weeks later. It’s easy—book an appointment.

I Have No Time

Yes, you do. If you have just 10 minutes, you can get your bikini sugared. In fact, you can get your underarms, lip, brows, or bikini done in under 10 minutes, generally.

10 minutes! You have that time. Book an appointment.

I’m Worried about In-Grown Hairs

This is one of the fabulous things about sugaring: no in-grown hairs! This is because we pull in the direction of hair growth, not the other way around. (You know, like waxing.)

You will experience minimal to zero in-grown hairs; we promise. Book an appointment.

And some of our more creative excuses:

I’m Having My Period

So? 51% of the planet will have, has, or have had periods. They’re a thing, and we don’t care. Book an appointment.

I Haven’t Shaved My Legs

We’re not even going to comment on this one. Don’t be ridiculous; book an appointment. (We’ll do your legs, too.)

I Have a Hemorrhoid

Here’s the deal: hemorrhoids happen. To everyone. Not just you, and not just us. EVERYONE. Forget about the ‘roid—book an appointment. Hemorrhoids are NOT allowed to dictate your hair removal habits.

C’mon…

I’m Embarrassed to Be Naked

Why? You’ve been naked in front of people before—and for way more invasive reasons than hair removal. Birthing babies. Pap tests. Sex. (Probably in the opposite order.)

All we’re doing is removing some hair. Book an appointment.

It Might Be Cold, and Then I Might Shrink (this one’s for dudes)

Fact: we don’t care about shrinkage. We’re not your wives or girlfriends or partners or buddies or whatever. We’re here to get you sugared, and send you on your way. Plus, our rooms are not cold—we’re in the business of removing hair from people who are often at least half naked.

We’re keeping warm rooms, guys. We promise. Book an appointment. (Note: only offer male brazilians at our Chilliwack and Langley locations.)

No excuses! Book an appointment.

5 Reasons to Try a Brazilian

Think a brazilian isn’t worth the blood, sweat, and tears? (Not the nationality—the hair removal.) Let us guess: it’s because you actually think brazilians mean blood, sweat, and tears.

They don’t!

Don’t give yourself a bum deal by avoiding a brazilian—here are 5 reasons to take the plunge:

You Do Other Things That Hurt Worse Than a Brazilian

Honestly.

There are many things we all voluntarily do that are more painful than a brazilian. Like tattoos. And travel immunizations. And upper lip threading. And having babies.

Brazilians? No problem.

Yes, it hurts the first time. But we try to have as much fun as we can with it, and we promise it gets easier every time you have it done.

(In every conceivable way.)

It’ll Keep You Cooler

You know how when you let you leg hair grow a little (or a lot) and it keeps you warm? Yeah—so the opposite of that. Remove the hair, and save on air conditioning. Win-win!

(Also? We can remove that leg hair. Come on, now…)

You’ll Rediscover Your…Parts

If you’ve never had a brazilian, then you’ve never really seen yourself in all your glory. Remember grade eight science, when sex ed was mandatory and body parts were discussed? When is the last time you had a good look down there?

Yeah. We thought so. You’re due!

The Result Will Surprise Your Partner

Again, with the science stuff: every action results in a reaction, right? Well…let’s cause a reaction! Come home with a freshly sugared package and see what happens…it even sounds yummy!

Sugared vagina? Yes, please!

Your Parts are Not Unique

Well, they’re not not unique. Hmmm…what we’re trying to say is this: we’ve seen a lot of private parts, and we’ll never remember yours—so you don’t have to be embarrassed. On the contrary, you should feel comfortable knowing that body hair removal is all we do all day, every day.

We’re experienced. We’re professional. And you will LOVE everything that happens as a result of your fearless choice to finally try a brazilian.

Visit our website to find the Sugar’d location closest to you—there are six—and then give us a call to book your visit. If you’re a brazilian virgin (again—in reference to the hair removal, not the beautiful people from South America), then you need to come experience what all the fuss is about.

People don’t do this for fun, folks. They do it because the result is awesome.

 

 

 

Ladies and Gentlemen: Stop Shaving!

Stop shaving!

Although hair removal is usually thought of as something women engage in or practice, the fact is, most men choose to remove hair, too. Nowadays, most men and women in Canada and the United States can say they’ve tried some form of hair removal, whether it be shaving legs, waxing an upper lip or underarm, or sugaring their bikini line.

But what do we really think about hair removal?

Some women believe that hair removal is somewhat of a double standard (having to shave two full legs from 12 years on every couple of days is no light work), but most also will say that they find it necessary or enjoy the feeling of having smooth legs—especially in the summer.

And shaving every couple of days isn’t even necessary…you can employ hair removal methods that last much longer, like sugaring! If you hate shaving so frequently, try our method, and you won’t be sorry.

So what about men?

Many men love to remove hair on their arms (and underarms!), especially if they have tattoos they want to show off during the summer months. Sugaring is great for this, too—the process is fast and efficient and lasts for weeks, not days.

Men also use our services to remove hair on their back and neck—places that are difficult to shave or wax on one’s own. Again, the result is favourable because it lasts a long time in comparison to shaving.

Bottom line? Stop shaving! We know you all love smooth skin and remove at least a little bit of your unwanted body hair on a somewhat regular basis. If you’re doing it anyway, why not do it in an effective way that lasts way longer than 24-48 hours?!

To book a sugaring appointment, visit our website at sugard.ca, and choose the location you’d like to visit—there are six of them for your convenience.

Dare to be bare, friends! Stop shaving and start sugaring.

The Environmental Benefits of Sugaring vs. Waxing

Although waxing has been one of the most popular forms of hair removal in the last couple of decades, sugaring is now giving the procedure a run for its money. Why? Because there are so many environmental advantages to sugaring—waxing just doesn’t compare.

Here are two major eco-friendly benefits of sugaring vs. waxing:

Sugar Paste is 100% Natural

We know: we all see the word ‘natural’ thrown out everywhere to describe everything, right? But when it comes to sugaring, it’s true! Our sugar paste is 100% natural—that’s why we call it ‘eco-sweet body hair removal’!

The product itself is made using just three ingredients: sugar, water, and lemon juice. In fact, marketing our product as edible has been part of our recent campaign strategy to show our customers just how natural and kind our sugar paste really is—our product is so natural, you can eat it!

(Just ask our campaign baby…😉)

Waste is Minimal in Comparison to Waxing

Waxing is associated with a lot of unnecessary waste. Take a second to think about it: there are multiple cloth or paper strips, wooden applicators, and then the wax itself, which is environmentally harmful—this stuff doesn’t decompose easily, guys.

All of this adds up to a lot of waste every time someone is waxed!

But with sugar paste, you just use one ball of paste. That’s it! And because it’s a 100% natural, earth-friendly substance, it decomposes easily and efficiently. In fact, you can compost it—and that’s a massive environmental advantage.

No strips, no applicators, and just one small ball of sugar paste. That’s it.

Have we convinced you to trade waxing for sugaring? We hope so! Aside from a host of other reasons to make the switch, sugaring definitely scores more points for the environment than waxing does.

Keep your environmental footprint a little smaller, and book an appointment at the Sugar’d closest to you. Visit our website and check out our locations; we currently have six in BC, including Vancouver, Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford, Mission, and Chilliwack.

Take your pick, contact the shop you wish to visit, and give sugaring a try. No one goes back to waxing, guys. No one. Sugaring vs. waxing? Not even a fair fight.

 

Summer Hair Removal for Men

Yes, men elect to remove their body hair, too. If you’re considering hair removal, don’t waste your time—try sugaring! Hair removal for men is exactly the same as hair removal for women. We don’t discriminate, and it’s way more common than you might think.

So what do men typically choose to get sugared? Here are some popular options we offer:

Male Brazilian

Yep—this one’s a popular choice of hair removal for men. Men like to be bare down there, too, and if you’re a guy who thinks that men don’t need to ‘manscape’, think again. Do you like it when your partner takes the time to clean her/himself up?

We thought so. Try a male brazilian!

*Note: only our Langley and Chilliwack locations offer male Brazilians, so if you’re into it, be sure to book your appointment at one of these salons.

Back/Shoulders

This is another popular choice for men. Although sporting a hairy back and/or shoulders at the beach is totally cool, if it bothers you and you want that hair gone, sugaring is the best way to take care of it.

Sugaring lasts longer than most other hair removal methods, it’s typically less painful, and our sugar paste is room temperature—not hot. This bodes well for having hair removed where you can’t see it yourself.

Legs

Men who have a lot of leg hair often enjoy the feeling of having smooth legs. Not only can tons of hair make it difficult to apply sunscreen in the summertime, but ultra-hairy legs can also make you very warm in the sun!

If you’re a swimmer, you probably shave. Do yourself a favour, and get sugared, instead. It’s way less upkeep, and will save you loads of time.

Arms

Arms are a big one for guys who want to show off their tattoos—if you have an amazing piece you want to make visible, let us help you make that happen! Our sugar paste creates a smooth, clean result that optimizes the appearance of that art on your arms.

Chest

Again, a smooth chest is becoming more and more desirable during the summer months, due to the reasons we mentioned above. (Sunscreen plus hot temperatures equals messy and uncomfortable.)

The most important thing is to be comfortable in your own body. If you have no interest in hair removal, then that’s totally fine! But hair removal for men is becoming more and more popular, because the stigma has been lifted, and more men are talking about the results (which they love).

Contact us today to book your first appointment and give sugaring a try. Remember to call the location closest to you, and book with that particular salon.

Enjoy the hot weather, and let us help you feel amazing in the skin you’re in!
