Sugaring Around the World


If you’re based in the United States and stay up to date on hair removal trends, you’ve likely heard of sugaring. Some people tend to think sugaring is a new treatment that’s just come to the market, but the truth is sugaring has been around since ancient Egyptian times. With its rich history, you can imagine that sugaring exists in all different forms throughout various cultures all over the word. In India and the Middle East, among other areas, sugaring is a tradition that starts at home where the recipe and technique is passed down through generations. Some sugaring is done with cold paste or might be pressed on with the thumbs and removed by flicking backward. Others use soft, warm sugar and remove it with a cloth strip. We could create an entire article about traditional sugaring techniques and the history of hair removal.
