Frequently Asked Questions

What is Sugaring?

Body sugaring is an ancient art of hair removal using a completely natural paste made from lemon, citric acid and water. It’s so organic, it can be used on all skin types, especially sensitive skin.

Unlike waxing, sugaring has properties that help with the overall health and appearance of the skin and most importantly, hurts less than waxing due to the fact that it’s only sticking to and pulling on the hair, whereas waxing sticks to both skin and hair, thus traumatizing the surface of the skin and providing a not so pleasant hair removal experience.

The JustSugar sugaring process can be done in two different ways:

Method 1: The paste is molded onto your skin against the direction of the hair growth, then quickly flicked off, removing the sugar paste, extracting your unwanted hair, and collecting dead skin cells.

Method 2: A spatula is used to apply the paste in the direction of hair growth and then removed with a cloth strip.

How Long Does The Hair Need To Be?

Hair needs to be about the length of a rice grain before you make your JustSugar appointment. That’s usually 10 – 14 days after your last shave or 3 – 4 weeks after your last wax.

How Long Does Sugaring Last?

Did you know that sugaring lasts longer than waxing! It’s true, but how long a Sugar lasts is dependent on the body part sugared and how often you get sugared.

JustSugar Brazilians can last anywhere between 4 – 6 weeks, depending on your previous method of hair removal and how often you currently sugar.

Bikinis and Underarms last roughly 3 – 4 weeks

Legs last roughly 2.5 – 4 weeks

How Often Do You Think I Should Get Sugared?

This is dependent on the body part.

Areas above the waist grow at a faster rate, so things like brows, underarms, chin etc can be done twice a month.

Areas waist down can be done once monthly.

I Have Sensitive Skin. Is This Safe For Me?

Absolutely! Sugaring is 100% safe and effective on all skin and hair types, it’s even safe during your entire pregnancy! With Sugaring, only the dead skin and hair is removed, because you’re being exfoliated – NONE of your live skin can be removed. Also, the sugar paste is applied at room temperature, so it can NEVER burn you!

Can I Get Sugared While On My Period?

Yes to Bikinis, no to Brazilians.

We’ll definitely still do your bikini area, however, when Aunty Flo is here, the entire area may be super sensitive, so a Brazilian isn’t recommended during this time.

See you when it’s done!

Is It Safe To Get A Brazilian If I’m Pregnant?

Firstly, congratulations! Second, yes, you can still sugar, however, you may experience more skin sensitivity due to the hormonal changes your body is going through, but we’ll make you’re as comfortable as possible during the service. We also recommend checking with your doctor to receive the go ahead before setting your JustSugar appointment.

Running Late.

There’s a 15 minute grace period for your appointment which means if you’re 15 minutes late, you’ll have to reschedule.

Cancellation or Rescheduling.

We ask that you give us 24 hours notice if you must cancel or reschedule your appointment.

We understand that things come up unexpectedly, so to be fair, we give you a total of 3 strikes. After 3 strikes, you will need to prepay for your future appointments.

Strike 1: Will advise you of the No Show & Cancellation Policy
Strike 2: You will be charged for ½ of your previously booked service in addition to your newly requested service upon your next appointment.
Strike 3: You will no longer be able to book an appointment without paying for your service in advance.

How Far In Advance Do I Need To Make My Appointment?

It’s best to make your appointment at least 7 days in advance.
