Organic Wax & Sugaring

Friday, June 30, 2017

I started my sugaring journey about a year ago and I've never looked back. Since then I've been to many waxing studios and I've realized that not everyone will wax you the same way. Some people are quick, meanwhile, others are slow. Some make it painful and others make it painless. I've been through it all in the last 14 months and I know a good salon when I see one.

When I made my appointment with Organic Wax & Sugaring they were very professional and worked with my schedule. As I arrived, I was greeted with the woman at the front desk. The space itself is very beautiful and well decorated. The room is bright and creates an environment where one feels relaxed and fresh,

I worked with Olga this evening and I'm convinced I could not have been treated any better. As I sat in the room she explained the process to me and walked me through the difference between normal waxing and sugaring.

Brazilian Waxing: The wax is applied in the direction of the hair and then removed against it. For my sensitive ladies, this can be an issue. When waxing, the paste sticks to the actual skin and can pull some of the skin. This can cause redness or burning.

Sugar Waxing: The wax is applied in the opposite direction of the hair growth and removed in the direction of the growth. When sugaring, the sugar only sticks to the hair follicles and dead skin.

I decided to go with the sugaring treatment because I've found it's what works best with my skin. Sugaring leaves me less irritated overall and let's be honest, I'm a huge fan of anything organic.

As I was getting waxed, Olga told me story from her childhood that really made me connect with her. She said that sugaring is something that can be traced years and years back. When women would hang out and have girl time, they would make the sugar paste themselves. In fact, it's very easy to make. It's simply sugar, lemon juice and water! When women had their girl's night, they would sometimes bring the younger girls along as well. The younger girls, like always, wanted to be just like the mommies. So what would they do before waxing each other? they would dip sticks into the wax and give them to the younger girls and then send them off to play. While the girls played, the mommies took turns waxing each other.

I found this story to be genuine and entertaining. It kept my mind off the waxing and by the time she was done telling the story, the waxing process was almost done.

Olga was quick and always warned me before pulling. She also applied pressure to ease the pain after she pulled.

Will I be coming back? Yes, most definitely!

I went ahead and booked my appointment for next month and I look forward to seeing her again! If you're new to waxing or if you want to know more about the process, I would recommend you pay this place a visit. They do an incredible job at informing you and letting you know exactly what's going on!

Best Wishes!
