Kathy,
Do you use sugaring at all and if so do you use the method without strips?
Thanks

i do not but would.. let me explain, i dont want to spend the money right now on the product when my wax is doing just fine. joyce donnell has a daughter in law who does this and a salon in the town next to mine does use this. they charge more for it and say that it hurts less and you dont use any strips.. it is applied with the fingers/hand and you put in on skin and pull and repeat.. i could see where it is more enticing and prob more efficient, i saw them demo it at a show and really would like to do it. but like i said i dont want to spend the money when i dont have the full body clientelle to support it.

but yes it does not use strips

Real sugaring is made up of all natural food-grade ingredients like sugar, lemon juice, water and sometimes essential oils.

They will not sell the wax until you take a course with them. I did make the sugar but it got sticky after a few rips, did really like it though. It would be nice to be able to buy it and it be approved then to be brewing your own sugaring paste...lol.It's over 600 for the course and I'd have to travel to take the course. There isn't a need or a call but for me personally I wanted it.

I've used sugar paste for some time -- I really like it and I really like the price. With practice you can do a set of legs with a packet.
BUT(and this is mostly why I recommend against a sugaring class for 600.00) REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY'RE TELLING YOU, SUGARING AND SUGAR PASTE ARE NOT FOR EVERYONE!!
It's ideal for the client who's had a lot of waxing or who's hair is very fine and non-resistant.
I adore that the skin is so clean and fresh after the treatment.
No burns and it's cheap enough that you throw out whatever remains in the packet giving you no cross contamination between clients.
Note -- very important that the skin is dry with no oils or lotions.

Here's an ad on ebay for sugar paste --
It's cheap enough you can play with it and practice on anyone willing to hold still!
If you scroll down on the page you'll get a u-tube demonstration.
And, after you watch it there will be a listing of other tutorials -- the second one is especially helpful.
(Even though the tutorials are in French the technique is really clear.)

Hope that helps --

I took the sugaring course and have converted many waxing clients over to it. They all love that it does indeed 'hurt' less, no burning, and that it's so quick!
I highly recommend it.

Both waxing and sugaring are same. Only in sugaring the sugar paste is used which consists of sugar, lemon, water, citric acid and gum arabic. Sugar paste is used instead of wax to remove hair which was used in ancient Egypt. Sugaring is 100% natural rather than waxing and it is applied with the help of gloves.

The opinions about sugaring is polarized between 2 diametrically opposing groups. Some women like it a lot, others say it isn't good for them. I know 1 thing for sure: sugar is cheaper than wax

Alexandria are good but I have found http://www.bodysugaringaustralia.com to be better.

Alexandria to me their products had no silicates and when I got them in my salon and was reading the labels two of their products had silicates as one of the main ingredients!

BSA have a better, faster method that wont hurt your hands and do their courses online too!
