No in our opinion it’s much better!
The benefits of sugaring over waxing:
It’s more hygienic, lasts longer, and can be less painful if done regularly. Sugaring doesn’t cause ingrown hairs (it can actually correct them)! In addition, sugaring is a natural exfoliating treatment for the skin and can lead to permanent reduction of hair growth. We don’t understand why anyone would want to wax, either.

Just about. Everywhere except the scalp, beard, inner ears and nostrils.
Let us take care of you. It’s what we do! If you’re lacking landscaping, don’t worry! We have trimmers, sugar paste, and trained professionals prepared for every service.
Honestly, it depends on the person. The first time is the hardest, and it only gets easier from there. On repeated visits, within 4-6 weeks the hair follicles will be smaller and the bulbs weaker, so they’ll come out smoother each time.
Your sugaring expert applies the sugaring paste and then uses a gentle flicking motion to remove hair in the natural direction of the growth. Unlike waxing, sugar does not adhere to live skin cells and therefore does not leave unwanted residue or discomfort.

Sugar, lemon and water. It’s vegan, natural and doesn’t contain anything chemical.
Do not use any lotions or oils on the day of your appointment (sugar does not like oily skin). We love exfoliating to get rid of dead skin cells and recommend you exfoliate once a week. If this has not been your routine so far make sure to exfoliate at least once prior to your appointment, but NOT the day before or day of your appointment.
No! It’s hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic (which means that it doesn’t block pores).
We use medical-grade sanitizers (which are actually more sanitary) in place of towels/sheets in an effort to Go Green
It’s body temperature or lukewarm, which means it can’t burn your skin.
There are two methods of sugaring: hand sugaring and strip sugaring. Hand sugaring is the most natural and ancient way of hair removal. Strip sugaring sees a thin layer of sugar paste being applied with a spatula. A cloth is then placed over the paste before being removed. Unlike other sugaring places, we hand sugar the traditional, all the way in order to make sure no hair is left behind or broken.
Hand sugaring is not only the most sanitary and meticulous way of sugaring, it is also an art. Only the best sugaring therapists use this method.
We have two studios in London, one in Notting Hill and one in Shoreditch.
Sugaring London Notting Hill – 32 Uxbridge Street, W8 7TA
Sugaring London Shoreditch – 105 Redchurch Street, London, E2 7DL
We do not recommend body sugaring unless it has been at least one month since using a retinoid or six months since using Acutane.
Absolutely! Sugaring can actually help brighten tattoos.
No, a ball of sugar is only used for one client and is discarded after a single use. Also, we apply the sugar paste by hand and don’t require application sticks for applying the sugar paste.
It’s up to you. Menstruating does not affect the sugaring process, although you may be a bit more sensitive to pain. If you’d rather not reschedule, simply use a tampon during your appointment.
We will do our best, but we can’t guarantee your sugaring expert of choice. This is due to illness, holidays and changes in the work schedules of our staff. Thank you for your understanding.
Leaving a tip is optional, but very much appreciated! Tips are kept by your therapist.

We strive to accommodate the appointment needs of our clients, and make every effort to keep on time for scheduled appointments. If your appointment time becomes inconvenient for you, we are always happy to change it if you provide us with 24 hours notice.
Clients will generally be allowed a 5-10 minute grace period. If you are late, we may not be able to complete the entire treatment. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, your appointment may be rescheduled in order to meet the needs of those who are on time for their pre-reserved visit. If this happens it will be considered a missed appointment and 100% of the booked treatment charge will apply to your account.
Please remember that your appointment is reserved for you and only you. Thank you for your understanding.
As you can imagine, a client not turning up for their appointment can lead us into a difficult situation. As a company, we miss turnover and have a gap in our agenda. Of course, we always have the client’s best interest in mind and understand the occasional missed appointment. However should this occur regularly then the client is obliged to pay the costs of the missed appointment. A “No Show” is a client who does not show up on the appointed time, this includes coming 15 minutes late. This will be specified in your client card.
