per the suggestion of a lovely gal i know that writes for the huffington post and instyle.com (and therefore is an expert on all things beauty in my eyes!), i tried sugaring at sugar me in portland.
love, love, love! i had my eyebrows done and it's the same concept as waxing, except it's virtually painless and all natural. here's how salon owner, kate, describes it:
…100% natural. no resins or toxins.
…sugar is removed in the direction of hair growth which means less breakage + less ingrown hairs than with waxing
.…heating just to our body’s natural temperature, making it safe for super sensitive skin
.…sugar can extract very short hair…about 7 days of growth as opposed to 2-3 weeks of growth needed for waxing.
give it a try!
