Eyebrow Sugaring Review: Thanks to Theresa L. Larson of Avante Salon in Stillwater, Mn for teaching us all about the art of eyebrow sugaring.
Theresa has been a licensed cosmetologist since 1992, licensed manager since 1994, certified sugar practitioner since 2004 and an educator for “Sugar it” since 2005. A current cosmetology license or Esthetician license is required to obtain body sugaring certification.
Sugaring is an ancient hair removal method that removes the hair from the root. It can remove hair as short as 1/16”, so there is no need to wait for hair to grow out between treatments.
Sugaring is made from all natural ingredients and the product is only used on one client, so there is no contamination concerns from warming pots. There are no strips used during the process, the sugar is applied directly to the skin and removed by the professional using only their hands.
I would say the sugaring process feels pretty close to the waxing process for eyebrows. The advantage I found is the sugaring compound does not cling to the skin as much as warm wax, so there is less redness and irritation when done. I have pretty sensitive skin and usually have some redness and irritation after waxing, with the sugaring I had no redness or irritation after.
Theresa did a great job explaining to me what she was doing as well as giving me a great shape to my brows.
