DOES SUGARING HURT LESS THAN WAXING?

Many women find sugaring significantly less painful than waxing. In waxing, the hair is removed against its natural direction of growth, which is what causes the higher levels of pain. This method also causes more ingrown hairs and skin irritation. In sugaring, the stubble is removed with the natural hair growth direction.

HOW LONG DOES MY HAIR NEED TO BE BEFORE I BOOK A SUGARING APPOINTMENT?

Hair is removed in the early anagen stage at 1/8 inch or less in the natural direction of growth. This can be done a few days after shaving! Which means, less pain, less breakage, eliminates ingrowth, less irritation, and exfoliation of the skin. The hair will stay away longer and your skin will be in better condition after the extraction!

HOW LONG DOES BODY SUGARING LAST?

You will see maximum results with your sugaring if you book when your hair is the length of a grain of rice (2 weeks post shave!). Hair generally grows on a 6-week cycle, therefore staying on top of it and getting regular maintenance every 4-6 week will improve long-lasting results!

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN THE 'SUGAR SOLUTION'?

Since Sugaring is an organic alternative to waxing, it is a completely natural paste made from lemon, sugar and water. It looks like honey, but is even thicker. That's it!

WHAT ARE SOME OTHER BENEFITS OF SUGARING?

It is not hot, which means no chance of burning and no pain to the skin after treatment
. Sugaring exfoliates the skin leaving it in better condition and can be used on any area of the body. It is easy to clean up, with no residue or sticky skin and it is completely sanitary with no risk of cross contamination.

WHAT IS SUGARING?

Body sugaring is a safe, gentle and more effective way to remove unwanted hair for women, men, and children, with the added benefit of removing dead skin cells and conditioning of the skin.

HOW DO YOU ENSURE YOUR KIT IS SANITARY?

Before any application we always ensure we are using clean and sanitized brushes. We use makeup brush cleanser and 70% alcohol. For any powdered items we spray down after use with 70% alcohol. For creams we always keep these sanitary by scraping out with a clean tool and using from a clean metal palette. For lips and mascara we use disposable one time use products. Any questions about our process we would be happy to answer.

We do! We will come to you on location as well as at Sugar Society or Fith & Co. Email weddings@sugarsociety.ca and get a quote from us.

Absolutely - We do 1.5 hour one on one lessons where we walk you through a day look and a night look. We also address any personal questions or concerns regarding your makeup applications. Bring along your makeup bag and we will tell you what to toss, keep and add.

HOW DO I PREPARE MY FACE BEFORE I COME TO MY MAKEUP APPOINTMENT?

Its always best if you show up with clean makeup free skin. We do the rest! We will target your skin type and customize our prep for you.

I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN, DO YOU HAVE PRODUCTS THAT WON'T IRRITATE?

Yes! Please let us know ahead of time so we can address this and make sure we avoid any products that may do so!

We recommend a manicure every 2-3 weeks and a pedicure a month to keep your hands & feet in amazing condition. Keep a look out for our nail memberships.

Of course! Just let us know if it was done that day to avoid a heavier exfoliation.

How long does it take to apply lash extensions?

Last extensions can take between 1-2 hours for a full set, and approximately 45-60 minures for a fill.

How often should I be coming in for lash refills?

Every woman has a different shedding pattern that is affected by skin type and lifestyle. Most women need a fill every 2-3 weeks to keep the extensions looking full. 
You need a fill if you have about 40-60% of your lash extensions still on. We will book you in for a 2-3 week fill (1 hr) of either classic, glam, or volumes and get your lashes filled back up to their new set glory!  

WILL MY NATURAL LASHES FALL OUT?

It is completely natural for your lashes to shed (fall out) daily! On average, you will shed 1-5 natural lashes every day. They're just so tiny that you usually won't notice it prior to getting extensions. As mentioned before, there is no damage when applied correctly so don't worry when you see your lash attached to an extension that has shed.

Will it ruin or cause my natural lashes to fall out?

When lash extensions are applied by a skilled and trained professional there is no damage to your natural lashes. We isolate each natural lash and apply the finest lashes with minimal adhesive to make for a light and fluffy set.
