Frequently Asked Questions

What is sugaring?

Well, this is a good place to start. Sugaring is your new best friend - and your body hair's worst enemy. Melted down sugar, water and lemon combine to create a sticky paste that removes body hair. Think waxing, only natural and sweeter.

How is it different from waxing?

Sugaring is a safer method of hair removal than waxing. Because waxing needs to be heated, it can cause burns if not used correctly. Waxing often also contains unhealthy ingredients, along with resins. These resins adhere to your live skin cells which can actually remove your top layer of skin - ouch! Sugar only adheres to dead skin cells, acting as a natural exfoliant and not harming your skin. Pretty sweet, eh?

How long does it last?

Sugaring will leave your skin smooth and hairless for several weeks. How long it lasts is different for everyone depending on their genetic makeup or how often they like grooming. We reccomend getting your Brazilian every 4-5 weeks.

What type of payment do you accept?

Hey Sugar... you can pay for your services using cash or credit. If you are visiting our Uptown location at The Truth Beauty Company, you can pay with cash, debit, or credit (no AMEX).

I'm on my period. Should I reschedule my Brazilian?

That is a personal choice, but you are more than welcome to continue with your scheduled appointment. We recommend wearing a tampon or a menstrual cup during your service.

Will I get ingrown hairs?

Because sugaring is done with the grain of your hair (as opposed to waxing), you are less likely to have hair breakage - a huge cause of ingrown hairs. We also recommend exfoliating every day to prevent dead skin cells from building up and clogging any pores. You wil recieve a complimentary exfoliation glove with your service.

How should I prepare for my appointment?

Please ensure your hair is about the length of a grain of rice before your appointment. You should also refrain from exfoliating before your appointment.

Where are you located?

We operate out of The Truth Beauty Company in Uptown Waterloo. The address is 46 King Street North.

What is your Cancellation Policy?

We have a 24 hour cancellation policy. Any cancelled/missed appointments made after this 24 hour period will be charged 50% of the missed service at their next appointment.
