Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is Body Sugaring?

A: Body sugaring is an ancient art of hair removal using a completely natural paste made from lemon, sugar and water. It looks like honey, but is even thicker. The paste is molded onto your skin against the direction of the hair growth, then quickly flicked off – removing the sugar paste, extracting your unwanted hair, and collecting dead skin cells.  This ancient hand technique that allows for the hair to be extracted in the direction of it’s growth means less breakage and discomfort for you! It’s more sanitary and reduces waste because there are no sticks or strips. After your service, the paste and gloves are discarded and you are left with beautifully smooth skin.

Q: How long does the hair need to be?

A: 1/2″ – about the length of a grain of rice. Depending on how fast your hair grows, that is usually 10 – 14 days after your last shave.

Q: How long does the hair stay away after Body Sugaring?

A: It all depends on what part of your body was Sugar’d, and how often you get Sugar’d. The short answer to this question is this: the more times you’re Sugar’d, the longer the hair stays away after each visit.

Q: How often do you suggest I get Sugar’d?

A: For areas below the waist, we suggest you get Sugar’d every 4 weeks. Areas above the waist grow at different rates. You may want to get your eyebrows or underarms done more often than once a month. Your arms hair may not need to be done as often.

Q: Do I need to prepare for my appointment in any way?

A: Please do not put deodorant on before your underarm Sugaring appointment; don’t put any lotion on the areas you are getting Sugar’d that day, and please do not exfoliate the day before or the day of your appointment.

Q: I have sensitive skin; can I be Sugar’d?

A: Yes! Any pigment or type of hair can be Sugar’d. It is even 100% safe during your entire pregnancy! With Sugaring, only the dead skin and hair is removed – NONE of your live skin can be removed. And the sugar paste is applied at room temperature, so it can NEVER burn you! Made from white sugar, water, and lemon juice (citric acid), our sugar paste is perfect for every skin type. It’s 100% eco-friendly and biodegradable, and any excess sugar paste comes off gently with warm water.
