Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long does my hair have to be?

A: For both waxing and sugaring, you need 10-14 days of hair growth, about 1/4 of an inch long.

Q: I've never been sugared before, is this going to hurt?

A: It is hair removal, so there is pain associated with it but each month gets easier and easier. If you have been shaving the worst is your first appointment. The root (bulb) of your hair is at its largest and hurts more. Compared to body waxing, most say sugaring hurts less but your pain tolerance will have an impact on your pain level.

Q: Less hair grows back with waxing, is it the same with sugaring?

A: Yes, but better! Sugaring adheres to the hair closer to the root compared to waxing so your results when it comes to roots being pulled are greater. Therefore, your hair growing back takes longer as the root rebuilds itself. Waxing makes your hair grow in thinner, sugaring does the same PLUS less hair growing back. 

Q: What if I am prone to ingorwns?

A: There are a few things you can do to help with ingrowns. First, use a dry brush, exfoliating cloth or body scrub to break away the dead skin cells. This will allow the new hair growing in to easily come through the skin resulting in less to no ingrowns. Second, moisturize. 

If you are prone to ingrown hairs, you find them painful or pustules, you can apply an antibacterial cream safe for sensitive areas. Ask me about Finipil.

Q: What hurts more - sugaring or waxing?

A: Waxing hurts more for sure - Sugaring doesn't adhere to live skin cells so there isn't as much tugging on your skin...and when we are talking about a full out Brazilian, it makes a HUGE difference!

Q: How long do the results last?

Your fuzz free results are longer by about a week or two when comparing sugaring to waxing. As the months go by and you maintain appointments, your time between appointments will increase. Saving you money!
