This month I want to share an amazing hair removal alternative with you. It’s called, sugaring!
Sugaring, sugar waxing or Persian waxing is a method of hair removal that has been in use since 1900 BC. Historically, sugar was confined to the regions surrounding Persia until the first millennium AD.
It gets even better! Sugaring is all natural, organic, and non toxic! There are three ingredients: sugar, lemon, and water. That’s it. It’s so natural in fact, you can actually eat it. It has a cotton candy consistency but the lemon gives it a nice citrus flavor. But I’m not trying to get you to eat more sugar, but if you are still waxing or shaving your backs, legs, or as the guys over at Hush Spa & Barber say, “Back, sack, and crack,” then you need to try this out now! Shaving leaves you smooth for a short time before you’re all prickly. Waxing either burns or leaves you with red blotchy and traumatized skin that can’t be exposed to the sun for a few days. Sugaring lasts a long time like waxing, and causes far less trauma to your skin so you can look your best and enjoy your day shirtless or not.
The main difference between waxing and sugaring is the direction of application, and the immediate result of smooth healthy looking skin! Right on Wilton Drive, the guys at Hush Spa & Barber have been spreading their sugaring skills all over our community with many satisfied clients who continually come back monthly to get their sugar on. Pricing starts at $60 for a 30 minute session. You can book this service and any others you’d like on their website www.HushFl.com or by calling (954) 873-3120.
Harold Roberts, Hush’s full time esthetician recommends exfoliating your entire body every three days or so to prevent ingrown hairs from forming. “Other than that, you’re good to go sweetheart,” Harold tells a client as they leave the spa after an hour long sugaring session. “I love making guys feel comfortable in our environment and providing a service that is not too common yet has a remarkable result that our clients love.”
Hush Spa & Barber is the only full service day spa for men in Wilton Manors. It’s been operating for three years this September along with their first location Hush Manhattan which has been in business for 8 years. Check out Hush on the Drive – keep it Hush!
