What is Sugaring?
Sugaring is an all natural method of hair removal. The sugar paste is made of Sugar, Honey, Lemon, and Distilled Water. That’s it! No dye, No resins, No fragrance!!
How Does it Work?
The Sugaring Paste looks like a thick ball of honey that is held in the hand. There are no sticks or strips used. The sugar is placed onto the skin by hand and is applied in the opposite direction of hair growth. This lifts up the hairs, forces the sugar down into the hair follicle and wraps itself around the root of your hair. The sugar is removed in the direction of hair growth pulling out the entire hair including the root, it does not disturb the follicle. It leaves you completely smooth without stubble.
Before Your Sugaring Appointment
Can I use a topical pain reliever?
If you want to! Just make sure to test it before to make sure you do not have an allergic reaction to it. Also, just let us know if you have on a topical pain reliever. We will need to give you a hot towel before we begin to wipe off any residue that may be on the hair. The sugar is water soluble. Any moisture on the hair will cause the sugar to not adhere.
How long should my hair be?
The hair should be at least 1/4 of an inch long. About the length of the end of a pencil eraser or a grain of rice.
Should I trim the hair?
If it has been a while since you have done any maintenance you might want to trim. If you are not sure, wait until your appointment and just ask if it needs to be trimmed. It is not a big deal, we can trim it!
Let's Talk Brazilian
Brazilians seem to be the one service I get the most questions about. Most new clients tend to feel embarrassed or shy when it comes to asking questions about Brazilians. So lets just get it all out on the table!
What is a Brazilian?
I am just going to be blunt here because there is no way to sugar coat this! A Brazilian is removing all the hair from your backside (your rear-end) all the way up through your entire bikini region. Some people leave a triangle or landing strip hair up top. We will discuss what a Brazilian is to you and what you would like to do!
Do I have to do the backside?
No. Although, it is usually the least painful part of a Brazilian. It even hurts less than the bikini region for most people.
Does Sugaring hurt?
Yes. All hair removal hurts. But it is not unbearable and most clients think it is less painful than waxing. Relaxing and taking deep breaths help with the pain.
Does it hurt less if I do it more often?
YES!! Maintenance is key!! Once you have had a Brazilian you should always book your next appointment within 4 weeks. We call these “Touch-Up” appointments. At a touch up appointment you will have about 1/4 of your hair back. 1/4 of the hair = 1/4 of the pain!! Touch up appointments usually only take about 10-15 minutes. It is so worth it!
Should I shave between appointments?
No!!! You will not need to shave or trim between appointments. If you do the hair will be too short to remove.
