Sugaring Vs. Waxing

Posted on: October 23rd, 2012

On Monday, September 24th, TUBC students were able to attend a Sugaring demo hosted by our very own Ms. Kelly and Ms. Traci. For those of you who don’t know, “Sugaring” is a hair removal process just like waxing, however it uses all natural ingredients. Most sugar paste is made only with sugar, water & lemon juice.

Sugaring is a great alternative to waxing for several reasons. People with sensitive skin are looking more into sugaring because of it being all natural they are less likely to have a reaction. Sugaring is applied against the growth of the hair and is removed in the direction of the growth so there is less of a “pull” causing less discomfort as opposed to waxing. Since the hair is being pulled in the same direction of the hair it eliminates breakage that could cause irritation and also decreases the chance if ingrown hairs. Ms. Traci a certified professional in sugaring explained the benefits as well as the application. Those of us who attended the class were able to feel the consistency of the product and test it on ourselves. Professional sugaring is becoming more and more popular in the beauty industry. Sugaring does require you to attend special classes for certification but is a great opportunity to consider, as it will expand the services you have to offer in the future.
