Sugaring

They say you get what you pay for and with my waxing services you can be confident that your waxing experience will be the best you’ve ever had! I have a strict NO double dipping of the wax sticks, which means each and every swipe of wax is with a new stick. This guarantees the wax that is being applied to you has never come in contact with another person. Gloves are worn for each and every wax/sugar service as well. I use the highest quality waxes and sugar available to ensure the best hair removal service possible.

 

New clients, if you are new to me or new to waxing or sugaring and you have an important event to attend like a wedding, anniversary or vacation please remember waxing or sugaring is not without issues for many people. Histamine reactions (bumpy skin) are the most common and when steps are taken before and after hair removal sessions they can be minimized or avoided all together. It is best to get at least 2 sessions under your belt before events or vacations so that you know what to expect with your skin and how to take care of issues that may come up (this is all individual and can change month to month due to hormonal changes, weather etc). If you are unable to get 2 appointments in prior please remember to leave a 5 day minimum buffer between hair removal and scheduled events. Please remember this when scheduling.

​Why Sugaring? 

 

Along with waxing, I also offer sugaring services. Sugared hair growth is slower and finer. Even with the best waxing technique, 10-15% of the hair can suffer breakage because of the nature wax and how it dries and adheres to the skin. Sugaring never dries and stays pliable resulting in a far better removal of bulb and hair.

 

Sugar is applied at room temperature so no risk of burning the skin. There is the added benefit of less ingrown hairs because hair is removed with the direction of growth. Whereas with waxing, it goes against the growth which can result in more ingrown hairs. This is because the tube that guides the hair up to the surface can become damaged and twisted with waxing which will then prevent the hair from growing to the surface. Thus, causing painful ingrown hairs. This happens more frequently with men and women who have course or curly hair.

 

Sugaring is less painful upon removal, resulting in less post hair removal inflammation and bumps (histamine reaction). Sugar paste acts as a lubricant to the follicle allowing the hair to be removed easier and with less pain and trauma.

 

Sugared hair can be removed as short as 1/8 of an inch which means you can sugar more frequently if necessary. This is perfect for dancers, swimmers, gymnasts, cross fit athletes or anyone who desires to remain as hair free as possible. Sugar Paste is free of fragrance and or skin sensitizing chemicals that can cause reactions. It also has the added benefit of being easier to clean up! Sugaring is completely water soluble and removes easily with water.
