What is SUGARbare ™ ?
SUGARbare ™ is a natural method of hair removal that uses a ball of paste made of sugar, lemons + water. This paste is molded into the hair follicle and removed quickly in the direction of the hair growth. Using this method there is minimal irritation and slower re-growth. Sugaring dates back to ancient Egypt and is widely practice in the Middle East and Asia.
How does sugaring work?
During our SUGARbare ™ treatment a bare Sunless Specialist (a licensed esthetician) molds the sugaring paste onto the skin attaching to the hair follicle. Then, using a gentle + quick flicking motion removes the sugaring paste with the direction of the hair growth - removing the hair follicle from its root. With our SUGAR bare™ (sugaring) method it does not remove the live skin cells (like wax does) therefore it does not leave any lingering discomfort.
How long does my hair need to be in order to be sugared?
For best results we recommend that hair is at least 1/8” long. This is 2 weeks from the last time you shaved or 4-6 weeks from the last time you waxed.
Is sugaring the same as waxing?
No. In our humble opinion sugaring is so much better! Better results, less sensitivity (if any) + slower re growth. Winning!
Wax VS SUGARbare ™?
It’s more hygienic, lasts longer, and can be less painful if done regularly. Sugaring doesn’t cause in-grown hairs (and in some cases, can correct them)! In addition, sugaring is a natural exfoliating treatment for the skin and can lead to permanent reduction of hair growth. We don’t understand why anyone would wax either.
Do you offer manscaping or manzillians?
No, we are currently not offering manscaping or manzillians. We will be offering them in the near feature. Please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on our email list so that we can notify you once this service launches!
What temperature is the sugar paste?
The sugar paste is lukewarm. Never hot, no need to worry about burning your skin.
Do I need to worry about “double dipping” or any sanitation issues like I do with waxing?
No, we use one ball of sugar per client and is discarded after a single use. Also, since the paste is biodegradable and does not require an application stick like waxing it is a much more environmentally friendly option.
I have started my period and I have a bare bare scheduled (our version of the Brazilian) should I reschedule?
Menstruating does not affect the sugaring process. However you may find that during this period (literally) you may be little more sensitive to pain. The upside of that is that once it is done, its done! You can simply use a tampon during your service for optimal results!
Can I do sugaring right before I do a sunless tan?
Yes you sure can! We actually recommend it. The exfoliating factor of sugaring + the lack of shaving will actually make your tans adhere better and last longer!
