Sugaring is a form of hair removal, dating back to ancient Egypt, that uses a thick sugar based paste to remove unwanted hair and dead skin cells without adhering to live skin. It is generally more gentle than traditional waxing, while still providing the same results. Sugaring lasts anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks, but can vary with each individual.

Then with a flick of the wrist, it is removed, taking the hair, down to the root with it. The removal of the entire hair follicle results in a reduction of hair growth over time. Sugaring is gentle enough to be done all over the body, and is a fantastic alternative for those who are unable to wax.
