Before your appointment
|Sugaring Hair Removal|
|The hair needs to be long enough for the sugar to hold and pull. We know resisting temptation to shave can be tough but what is tougher is trying to pull hair that is too short. We recommend hair to be roughly the length of a grain of rice. If you can't pull on the hair then we probably can't, too. If your hair is too short, simply give us a call at 206-632-3602 at least 24-hours before your appointment and we'll get your appointment moved.
Keep your skin hydrated! |
Stay hydrated! Drink lots of water and moisturize regularly up until the day before your appointment. Healthy and hydrated skin will allow the entire hair follicle to be easily removed and to prevent future ingrown hairs. Just like a weed in a garden, the root will snap and break if the area is dry. Staying hydrated is a good life rule for every day even if you don't plan on being sugared.
Do not exfoliate prior to your appointment. Sugaring is a mild exfoliant by removing the dead skin cells on the surface. Over exfoliation may cause irrational to the skin.
Do not wear any products on the area you plan on being sugaring the day of your appointment. Clean, bare skin is best. Products may create a barrier making it difficult for the sugar to hold onto the hair.
Plan to do rigorous activities that involve sweating before your appointment. This includes, but not limited to: working out, swimming, saunas, hot tubs. Hair removal leaves the pores temporarily open and it is important to keep sweat and bacteria from entering.
|If you plan on getting sugared or any form of hair removal including shaving do so at least a full day before your appointment. Hair removal after getting a spray tan risks the color to be removed. We do not provide tanning and sugaring appointments on the same day, if it is the same areas of skin being serviced. This prevents open pores from the hair removal from being contaminated with tanning solution.|
Exfoliate the day before or day of your appointment. This is an important step to having an even color. Exfoliating off the dead skin cells will allow a smooth canvas for the tanning solution to be applied. If applied to dry, flaky skin, the color may come off in patches.
Do not wear any products. Lotions and other products will prevent the tanning solution to be applied evenly on the skin, but rather, it will adhere to the product resulting in a patchy result. If you plan on getting your face tanned please do not wear any makeup.
Wear or bring dark, loose clothing. The tanning solution will dry within minutes on the skin but be prepared to prevent any possible transfer staining.

|Do not wear any makeup on and around the eye area. A clean slate is the best bet for best results!|
If you wear contact lenses please bring a pair of glasses or backup lenses or lens case and solution. Some individuals may have sensitive or watery eyes which can temporarily result in blurry vision.
