What is sugaring?

Sugaring, an ancient hair removal technique from Northern Africa, Greece, and the Middle East, offers a sweeter deal than shaving or waxing.


Made from sugar, lemon, and water, the paste removes hair from the roots gently and naturally, providing longer-lasting results. Sugaring works on all body parts and hair types.


Unlike wax, it doesn't stick to live skin cells, conditioning the skin and reducing redness and irritation. The sugar seeps into the follicle, removing short or fine hairs, resulting in slower regrowth. You can visit more frequently if desired, avoiding the grow-out period. After sugaring, you can resume your normal routine hassle-free.


Choose sugaring for superior hair removal for both women and men.

Arrive with clean, dry skin (no shower or working out right before), avoid lotions or oils the day of your service. I recommend exfoliating your skin regularly, but NOT the day before or the day of your appointment. If possible, refrain from consuming caffeine 3-4 hours prior to your appointment.

How long does my hair need to be to get sugared?

For best results, it is recommended that hair is at least 1/4” long.  This would be about 14 days since your last shave or 1 month since your last sugaring or waxing session.


I am trained to provide brazilian and bikini sugaring services for women. However, I do offer all other sugaring services for men and I can refer you to a nearby esthetician that is specialized in men's brazilian sugaring.

If I use Accutane, Retin-A, or other retinoid creams is it safe to get sugared?

It is not recommended for face sugaring unless it has been at least six months since using Accutane and 5 days for retinol or retinoid creams.

All natural ingredients, water soluble, lukewarm never hot, exfoliates the skin, bacteria resistant, minimal discomfort and irritation, removes hair from the follicle, does not cause in-grown hairs, safe for sensitive skin, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic (doesn’t block pores), hygienic, and lasts longer leading to permanent reduction of hair growth.

Yes! Sugaring can actually help brighten tattoos.

Erica does an amazing job! I have been getting sugared for years and gone to over 10 different people and Erica is the best I've ever been to. She is so skilled that the pain is minimal and she is always very thorough. I am going to be sad if I ever move away and have to find someone else. Definitely highly recommended.
