A girl's guide to sugaring

I have heard about this, sound good!

Wow it gives your eyebrows a lovely shape brings out the beauty of your eyes.

WOW your eyebrows now have beautiful shape! Its funny how you don't realise how hairy they are until you get them done, and them afterwards you feel like a new woman. After reading this I will have to go and get mine done!!

You didn't say how much it was in the article is it much more expensive then an eyebrow waxing?

Hi Monique - It's around the same price - $20 for eyebrows. A full list of proces can be found here: http://www.chelsey.co.nz/competitions/win-one-of-five-home-sugaring-packs

Would love to give it a go, I'm all for pain free!


I've never heard of this, but if is pain free count me in!


I would try it on my face and eyebrows too to get rid of annoying stray hairs that pop up.
