SE: Open most days

WHERE DO I PARK?

In NE there are six spots on 32nd Ave with free 2 hour parking Monday through Saturday and free parking all day Sunday. Your best bet is to arrive early and park in the neighborhood behind the studio on Schuyler Street which is Free with no parking limit. 

In SE there is free street parking on the strip and throughout the neighboring streets. 

Please allow 5 minutes for paperwork.  If you are running late please call. 15 minutes late constitutes a no show and you will be charged 100 percent for your service. 

WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?

You have 24 hours before your appointment to cancel or reschedule at no additional cost. Unfortunately if you do not cancel outside of the 24 hour timeframe there is a 50% charge for blocking the books. For rescheduling under 24 hours there is a fee of $25. There is a 100% charge for no call, no show.  If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment this is considered a no show/late cancellation. We are a small business by appointment only. When we have last minute cancellations and no shows, we are unable to take another client. Of course there will be certain cases where these fees will not apply. 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO GET SUGARED?

Hair extracts easiest 2-3 weeks after being shaved or waxed. The hair should be close to or at least the length of a grain of rice.

WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER BEING SUGARED?

For the first 24-48 hours you should avoid heat, friction and fragrances. After the first 24 hours you can gently exfoliate the area once a week. I can send you home with some samples of my bikini care products if you are prone to irritation. 

ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR SUGARING?

As with any skincare service I will have you fill out an intake form to gather information about products you are using and any skin conditions you may have. Skin thinning medications like Retin- A, laser treatments, or chemical peels are contraindications. Also I cannot sugar over moles, cold sores or broken skin. 

WHAT IF MY SKIN HAS BEEN REACTIVE IN THE PAST?

We should discuss any experiences you've had prior to your service. Some guests experience a histamine reaction, small bumps that typically go away after a few hours. Taking an anti histamine before your appointment can be very helpful.
