Cher-Mère Day Spa Kingston provides several options for your waxing needs. At Cher-Mère we use hard wax, sugar wax, and soft wax depending on your waxing needs. We have several options of wax to cater to different hair types and sensitivities. Cher-Mère offers waxing for both men and women. Every Wednesday we offer Waxing Wed. for 25% off Brazilian Waxing and 15% off all other waxing.
- Waxing and sugaring are both effective ways to remove hair, what differs is the way the wax is applied and their ingredients. As implied, sugar wax is made from sugar, honey, lemon, water, and essential oils and our other waxes are made from beeswax honey and essential oils. Thus, sugar wax can be removed with water whereas other waxes need an oil based product.
- Wax is applied with the direction of hair growth, but removed against the grain of hair growth. When sugaring the paste is removed in the same direction hair grows, putting less strain on the skin.
For the most effective waxing results, hair should be 1/4 inch long. Waxing may be uncomfortable but the discomfort does not last long (think pulling tape quickly off your arm)! The results depend on your hair growth but typically waxing last between 3-4 weeks. Book Online.
