Sugaring Hair Removal
WHAT IS SUGARING?
Sugaring hair removal is a safe, all natural form of hair removal. Sugaring is less painful and longer lasting than waxing. It also causes less ingrown hairs and irritation than other forms of hair removal. Sugaring paste consists of specially formulated sugar, lemon juice, and water. That's it! Making it hypoallergenic and safe for the environment. Since it is used as a ball of paste with no strips or sticks, it also produces less waste to fill up landfills with.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
After cleansing the area to be Sugared with a specific cleanser from Alexandria Professional, a light powder is sprinkled on the area. This is to help with any residual wetness as the Sugar paste is water soluble. The Sugar paste is then applied opposite the direction of hair growth. This helps it coat the hair. Slight pulling can be felt but is not overly uncomfortable. The paste is then flicked off in the direction of hair growth leaving you with soft, smooth, stubble free skin.
WHY IS IT BETTER THAN OTHER FORMS OF HAIR REMOVAL?
Sugaring removes the hair from the follicle in the direction of hair growth. That means there is less pulling on the skin making it less painful while shocking the hair follicle leading to decreased hair growth and a longer growth cycle versus waxing or chemical epilation such as Nair. It also leads to less hair breakage which decreases the chances of ingrowns!
Since it removes the root bulb, the hair that grows in is soft and tapered versus the blunt edge that scrapes like in shaving. Not to mention no razor burn!
HOW LONG DOES MY HAIR NEED TO BE?
Sugaring only requires 1/16" of hair in order to be effective.
WHAT DOES THE "+" AFTER THE PRICES MEAN?
Sugaring prices are dependent on the amount of hair to be removed and the time it takes to do so. The prices listed on the menu are the base prices. Meaning, for those with less hair to remove such as those who come in for regular sessions pay the base amount. The full price may be more than the base amount and will be discussed at your appointment before any hair is removed. It typically flucuates only $5-10.
