What Is Sugaring?

It’s May, which means the beautiful weather is finally here! We can finally tuck away our winter coats in exchange for more colorful summer dresses, shorts, and skirts. Many people absolutely love this time of year, enjoying more time outside and dreaming of the beach days that are only a few short weeks away!


With the warmer weather, however, it is also time to consider putting away the winter coat that is ON your body, yes, we are talking about hair removal. Hair removal can be a pain, (if you’re waxing, literally!) and few of us have the time it takes to shave every day in the shower. Fortunately, there is a new, up and coming form of hair removal on the scene. That hair removal is sugaring! (Technically, sugaring dates back to the days of ancient Egypt, but that’s another story for another blog!)


So let’s dive into why you’re here. Obviously, you’ve heard about this new form of hair removal or you wouldn’t be on this blog. You may not be entirely familiar with what sugaring is or why you would choose it yet. By the end of this blog, we are certain you will see the benefits of sugaring just as clearly as we do and will be happy to give it a go!


So, what is Sugaring?

Sugaring is a form of hair removal that is done with a simple ball of sugar paste. The technician moulds the sugar onto the skin in the opposite direction of hair growth. The sugar is then removed in the direction of the growth with a flick of the wrist. Removing the sugar in this manner is beneficial because it leads to less breakage and therefore smoother, longer-lasting results


What are the Benefits of Sugaring?

Sugaring has a ton of benefits, which you can read all about at the link provided. Some of these benefits include:


All Natural Ingredients

Sugar is made with all-natural ingredients. In fact, sugar consists of only lemon, sugar, and water, all ingredients found in a typical pantry.



Sugar is applied to the skin at a lukewarm temperature. You will never get burned by sugar. In fact, any sugar that was hot enough to burn you would be unusable!


Hair Length

Sugar seeps into the hair follicle when applied, instead of just sitting on the surface. This allows hair to be removed at lengths as short as ¼ of an inch!


Easy Clean-Up

Sugar is water soluble, which means it is easy to get off. No more walking around with your clothes sticking to your skin for the rest of the day! If you do have any sugar left over, a wipe with a wet cloth will remove it instantly.



Sugaring is the most sanitary form of hair removal you can get done in a salon. There is zero chance of cross-contamination as everything used to sugar you is immediately discarded of. No double-dipping to worry about here!
