Body Sugaring Q&A

What is body sugaring?

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 its growth means less breakage and discomfort for you! After your service the paste and gloves are discarded and you are left with beautifully smooth skin.

How long does my hair need to be?

Hair should be at least ¼ inch long. About the length of a grain of rice. This is about 2 weeks after your last shave. Trim if necessary.

What’s the difference between sugaring and waxing?

Sugaring is safe for all skin types, uses all natural ingredients and removes hair in the direction of growth. Wax is made of unnatural ingredients, removes hair in the opposite hair grown direction leading to more breakage, and can leave skin feeling raw and sensitive.

How long will the results last?

It depends on you and your hair growth patterns. Results can last up to 4-6 weeks!

How often should I rebook?

4-6 weeks is the recommended rebook time to keep your hair on the same growth patterns. Any sooner or later can lead to inconsistent hair growth and results.

Does it hurt?

There is some level of pain with ripping hair out but it hurts a lot less than waxing. Pop a tylenol or ibuprofen and make sure to drink lots of water at least 30 minutes prior to your appointment.

Can I get sugared while on my period?

Short answer: Yes of course. It’s up to you and what you’re most comfortable with! Just put in a tampon/menstrual cup and you’re good to go. Long answer: You might find your skin to be more sensitive leading up to and during your period. This can cause your treatment to be slightly more painful than usual. If you do find that you’re sensitive, try booking around your period.

Can I shave between appointments?

Please don’t! It is not recommended to shave between appointments. This will throw off your hair growth patterns and defeat the benefits sugaring offers.
