As I've mentioned in my
, I very much prefer sugaring over regular/hard waxing. Not only does it hurt a lot less than regular waxing, but the results last a lot longer as well.
spa in Atlanta that offers sugaring services to their clients. And thank goodness that they do, because I don't plan on switching back to regular waxing anytime soon!
I've been coming here ever since I moved to Atlanta. It just so happened that right when I moved here, Raquel Souza, the owner of Sweet Peach Wax & Sugaring Studio, had
opened a new location in Virginia Highlands. The timing couldn't be more perfect!
I've never been to the old location, (which I think used to be in Buckhead), but the new space is spacious, clean, and has a really sunny feel to it.
On the other hand, the rooms where the services are performed are a little on the small side, but at least they each have a TV to serve as a distraction while your waxer rips away at your unwanted hair. The last few times I've been there, Sex and the City was on.
Sweet Peach Wax & Sugar Studio offers a multitude of services--facials, body scrubs, spray tanning, waxing (sugaring and non-sugaring), and a few "Brazilian Secret Services", which consist of vajazzling, vajacials, and let's just call it 'waxing art.' Clearly anything that has to do with making your hoo-ha look amazing is their specialty. I've only been here for the sugaring services, and I can tell you that Raquel is
! Not only is she extremely nice and easy to talk to, but she is FAST! (Signs of a good waxer!) For a Brazilian bikini wax & upper lip wax, I'm usually in and out in less than 15 minutes!
Brazilian bikini waxes (sugaring) is $45, a steal compared to what I used to pay in Seattle. They also have a punch card, so after every five Brazilians, you can get one free! Just another incentive to go regularly!
Quick side note
If you live in
and are interested in getting some sugaring done, here are a couple of places I suggest you check out:
- Located in Fremont, it's the very first sugaring studio in the Northwest! I used to go to
, who also happens to be the owner of the establishment.
- Located in Ravenna/U-District. Just as good as The Sweet Spot, but a little cheaper. I used to go to
--she's super nice and did a great job every time. I'm not sure if she still works there though.
