Sugaring, wax & threading: advice for before & after your appointment
Updated: May 10, 2021
What should you do before your appointment?
For optimal results, make sure your hair is at least ¼ inch long, the size of grain of rice.
If it’s on the longer side — 3/4 inch or more — you might consider trimming it shorter, though we can do it for you.
4-5 days before your appointment, lightly exfoliate with a dry brush, buffing mitt, washcloth or scrub to get some dead skin cells out of the way. This will help prevent stray hairs and ingrown hairs from getting left behind.
Avoid tanning or applying retinoid creams for at least 24 to 48 hours before your service.
The day of your service, minimize your caffeine and alcohol intake to prevent your pores from tightening.
Come dress in loose, cotton clothing for maximum comfort.
Do not apply deodorant if getting underarms' services.
If you currently…
Razor/Shave: allow at least 10-14 days of regrowth before getting sugared.
Wax: allow 4 weeks of regrowth before getting sugared.
Sugar: 4-6 weeks of regrowth.
We recommend that men bring a clean cotton t-shirt and gym shorts if having their back, chest or legs sugared.
