What is sugaring?

It might sound like you are in a baking class, but sugaring is a method of hair removal. It is like waxing as it removes body hair by pulling the hair from the root. In BEAUTY THERAPY / BEAUTY TECHNOLOGY / COSMETOLOGY, the name for this method comes from the paste itself, which is made of lemon, water, and sugar. The ingredients are all heated together until it reaches a candy-like consistency. Once it cools it’s applied directly to the skin. This mixture is natural and environmentally friendly, making it a desirable method of hair removal, especially for clients who are green living conscious.

How is this different from waxing?

Sugaring may sound like waxing, but there’s a key difference: the direction of application and removal. With waxing, the mixture is applied in the same direction as hair growth and then removed in the opposite direction of hair growth. With sugaring, it’s the exact opposite. The paste is applied against the direction of hair growth and removed with the direction of hair growth. The sugar paste doesn’t stick to the skin like wax, therefore less skin irritation, which is great!

What areas can I sugar?

In BEAUTY THERAPY / BEAUTY TECHNOLOGY / COSMETOLOGY, the following areas can be sugared:

  • face
  • underarms
  • arms
  • legs
  • back
  • bikini

Are there any benefits?

Absolutely! The hair grows back softer and finer, and sugaring provides a light exfoliation, the skin is smoother and the lemon assists with brightening of the skin.

Are there any side effects?

There might be redness, irritation, and itching immediately after, however, this will not last more than a few hours.

How long will the results last?

After your first appointment, sugaring will last around 3 weeks. If you keep regular appointments, you may find that the process becomes less painful and that your hair grows back slowly over time.
