Our Training


What is Sugaring

Sugaring is an ancient Arabic form of hair removal, where a paste, made of sugar, lemon juice and water, is applied to the skin and flicked off. This effectively removes the hair from the root.

Sugaring began hundreds of years ago in the Arabic countries. Women at that time did not have the soaps and deodorants we have today, but they found that by removing their pubic and underarm hair they could stay fresher and cleaner. So they developed sugarpaste.
