First Time Visit

What should I do to prepare?2019-10-03T18:19:18+00:00

Come in with clean, dry skin. Do not apply lotions, oils, deodorant, fragrances, or other skincare products prior to your service.  Exfoliate your skin over 24 hours before your service.

Will this hurt?2019-10-03T18:18:50+00:00

Similar to waxing, sugaring pulls out your hair from the root. However, unlike waxing, sugaring removes hair in the direction of hair growth instead of against it. Many people experience less pain and discomfort with sugaring than they do with waxing. However, hair removal of any kind can be uncomfortable if you are not currently in a maintenance cycle with having it removed.

How long should my hair be for sugaring?2019-10-03T18:23:45+00:00

We recommend that you wait 4-6 weeks from your last appointment or at least 2 weeks after shaving. While we can technically remove hair as short as 1/16th of an inch, we recommend that hair be at least 1/8th to ¼ inch for best results.

What aftercare should I plan for after my appointment?2019-09-11T22:25:34+00:00

After your appointment you will want to avoid the sun for 24-48 hours and you will want to keep the skin dry and friction-free for 24 hours. When you come in for your first appointment, we will consult with you about particular products that we recommend for sugaring aftercare.
