So often, when clients come to try Sugaring for the very first time, they are amazed by the process! I use a method known as ‘hand-paste’ Sugar hair removal. Briefly, the other widely used method is call ‘strip Sugaring’ which uses long strips of cotton, in a process very similar to waxing. The Sugar is thinly applied, like wax, then the strip laid on top and patted down. Carefully now… the strip is pulled off and hair (most of it) is removed! voila!

I have long preferred the ‘hand-paste’ method. I find it gives me more individual control for pretty much each hair, certainly every small section. I can tailor the removal in a more gentle way, using only my gloved hand. It seems to be one of the reasons so many of my clients prefer this method, as you can work in smaller patches, yet keep going – no need to stop and re-apply the sugar and cotton. I like to keep a steady, quick pace and I do go over the same areas a few times to be sure all the body hair is removed.

Fair warning! I do let my clients in on a secret – they will feel the removal more the first couple of times I go over the body area – but within a few minutes, I can proceed with much greater levels of comfort when I am ‘cleaning up’ the leftovers, rather than just removing the bulk of hair.

Also, as I go, I apply immediate pressure with my non-working hand to the person’s just treated body area and effectively confuse the nerve synapses. This is a very effective method for ending, or certainly minimizing, the discomfort.
