Tamera's Shugaring Paste

What is Sugaring?

Sugaring and sugar waxing methods date back to around 1900 BC and history tells us that honey was most likely the base for the formula. Having smooth, hair-free skin was long considered to be a standard of beauty in Ancient Egypt and many people living in the Western world still uphold this standard of beauty. Egyptian women created their own depilatory methods using a sticky concoction of oil and honey to remove unwanted hair from the root.


Sugaring hair removal is an ancient Middle Eastern practice that uses an all-natural paste made from sugar, water, and lemon juice. It removes the hair follicle from the root with results that can last up to six weeks.

We live in a body-conscious society and the standard of beauty is still focused on smooth skin that’s free of excess body hair. After the invention of the bikini, bikini waxing became a necessary solution for getting rid of unwanted hair around the bikini line. Most women also want to have hair-free armpits, legs, backs, and even arms. Sugaring hair removal is a convenient and safe alternative to waxing and electrolysis and continues to be one of the most effective ways to get rid of excess hair in both large and small areas for several weeks at a time.

Organic Tamara’s Sugar Paste

Organic Tamara’s Sugar Paste is an alternative to waxing. Sugaring is an all-natural, biodegradable, water-soluble form of hair removal. Sugaring removes the hair in the direction of hair growth and offers 70% reduction of ingrown hairs. Applied at body temperature, the sugar paste adheres to the hair, not the skin and causes dramatically less irritation.

How Often Do I Sugar

  • Hair can be removed 1/8 inch long

  • The optimal amount of time between sugaring is 3-4 weeks. The hair is removed by the root to discourage the hair from growing back, leading to permanency over time.

  • For maintenance appointments, come every 4 weeks!

Prior to Sugaring Instructions

  • Do not exfoliate or sun bathe within 24 hours of service.

  • If this is your first time sugaring, note that sugaring can take 15-30 minutes longer than waxing services. 

  • Hair should be at least two weeks of growth if you have been shaving.

  • Do not wear lotions or creams prior to service.


Home Care Instructions​

  • Avoid tight clothing.

  • Do not exfoliate or sunbathe for 24-48 hours.

  • No exercising immediately after sugaring treatment.

  • No steam, sauna, or hot tub for up to 24 hours.

  • Do not use creams or lotion with fragrance.

  • Salt baths (max 15min) or salt compress can speed up the healing process of the follicle. For compress 1/2 tsp. in 1/4 cup water. For salt bath add 1/2 cup, follow with a rinse.

  • DO exfoliate and moisturize often for ingrown-prone areas such as legs and bikini areas.
