Sugaring Vs Waxing

If you are dealing with unwanted hair and you’d rather avoid the perils of using a razor, you have a few options available to get the sleek, smooth skin you desire. We offer two choices at The Sweet Spot: Sugaring and Hard Waxing. Here’s information about each process.


Sugaring is the oldest form of hair removal dating back to ancient Egypt! The procedure of sugaring is one that is relatively non-invasive, yet effective in the removal of hair. A mixture of sugar, water, and lemon juice is molded against the hair growth pattern where unwanted hair is present. It is then flicked away from the body in the direction of the hair growth. Unlike wax the sugar paste does not need to be heated to high temperatures, making it more comfortable for delicate regions. This procedure is less painful, more effective and safer than soft wax, which we never use. Sugaring is one of the preferred methods of hair removal especially for those with sensitive skin.  If you like a more organic approach this is the service for you! The sugar paste is all-natural. It does not contain additives, chemicals, or preservatives and cleans up easily with just water. 

Hard Wax

Hard wax is thick and works by hardening on your skin. Once it hardens, it is removed with our hands, so there's no need for cloth strips like with soft wax. This makes the process a lot less painful. According to experts, hard wax is best suited for use on your bikini line, underarms, and face. We only use hard wax in small areas therefore we recommend sugaring for large body areas like legs or backs. Hard wax leaves no sticky residue so it is much easier to clean up. It works great for both fine and coarse hair and grabs shorter hairs, often eliminating the need to wax on the same area twice. When using hard wax, the hair follicles and pores open up from the heat, making it much easier and less painful to pull the hair out. Just like sugar, hard wax adheres to the hair and not the skin making it way less painful. We only use the best of the best. Our Signature Hard Wax is one of a kind; Super Elastic, Cruelty Free, Vegan Friendly, Hypoallergenic, and Odorless.  Ideal for even the most sensitive skin this wax contains no colophony(tree sap or resin). This advanced formulation quickly cools after application making the service very fast. Our hard wax is unique in that it has a very low melting temperature, meaning you’ll never have to worry about it being too hot. If you like a really quick service this wax is for you! Get ready this wax is unlike anything you've seen, both esthetically & functionally.
