What is sugaring?

Sugaring is the oldest form of hair removal dating back to ancient Egypt! While the process and safety standards have surely evolved, it is just as much an art form today as it was back then. Sugaring is a fantastic alternative to waxing and other methods, especially those with sensitive skin. Hair removal is achieved by using a natural compound of sugar, lemon juice, and water. The texture is similar to a thick caramel and applied to the skin at room temperature or slightly warmed, never hot. The sugar paste is then gently molded along the area of hair growth. With a quick flick of the wrist, unwanted hair is removed at the follicle in the natural direction of growth. With swift but thorough attention, the process is repeated until the desired look or shape is achieved.

  • Pure and natural. Yes, it's edible! Wax sometimes contains resins and other chemicals. Waxing requires chemical solvents for clean-up, whereas sugar comes off with just water.
  • Sanitary, hypoallergenic, and non-comedogenic with zero risk of cross-contamination with proper application. A fresh new sugar paste is used for every client. 
  • Less aggressive and painful, especially for those with sensitive skin. Sugaring is also a mild exfoliant because it also adhere to dead skin cells. 
  • There is no risk of burns since the sugar is never hot.
  • More effective, longer lasting. Hair is removed along the natural direction of growth. By working with the natural growth sugaring can be less painful with less risk for hair breakage, ingrown hairs, and unsightly bumps.

What is 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, which we never use. 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. Our 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 our wax is unlike anything you've seen, both esthetically & functionally. 

  • 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 and making the service shorter.
  • 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).
