What is sugar hair removal?
A technique that ancient middle-eastern ancestors would practice. The organic hair removal paste is derived from ingredients like sugar, water and lemon juice with results that can last up to 6 weeks.
How It Works: A warm thick mixture is applied first opposite the direction of hair growth and is then removed in the direction of hair growth. Large amounts of hair can be taken off at the same time and areas can be finished faster than wax. This treatment is less painful and less damaging than wax.
Benefits: Most people find this less painful than waxing.
What do I need to do prior to my removal service?
Please arrive to your appointment in a clean and tidy fashion. exfoliating the night/morning before your service is known to help reduce irritation. (we recommend exfoliating with a hand full of sugar)
Will Sugaring hurt?
The sugar itself does not adhere to the surface of the skin. This means when we remove the paste, we do not have that ripping effect that waxing does. We are still removing the hair from the root of the follicle, so it is not pain free, but most say it is less painful than typical waxing.

We use the Eminence Organics Skin Care products. We have the entire back bar to fully customize a facial that will address a wide variety of concerns. Each facial will start with a consultation to determine the appropriate actions and products to fit your skin.
Will a Peel Hurt?
We have very active peels and not so active peels. None of our products will leave you in discomfort for a long period of time. At most, there is a bit of tingle as the product sits at the surface of the skin. As soon as the product is removed, the sensitivity will dissipate.
What do I need to do to prepare for my facial?
We ask that you arrive to your service with no make up. The less time we have to take removing make up, the more time we will have to focus on your skin.
What if I have sensitive skin and/or allergies to the product being used?
We use all organic product in our sugaring and facial services. If you have sensitive skin or know food allergies, you will want to disclose this prior to your appointment. Your technician may recommend a patch test before proceeding with your services.
