Since sugaring, or Halawa, only sticks to hair (not skin), women with sensitivities swear by this method. It’s also a dream solution for anyone who’s lazy or forgetful, due to its minimal upkeep.
Hibba Kapil, founder of NYC salon Hibba Beauty, says, “Sugaring is known to last longer than wax. For the first season, effects will last maybe four weeks, but as you become a regular, you can expect at least eight [hair-free] weeks.”
Since its formula only consists of organic lemon, pure cane sugar, and water, it’s a gentle option that won’t leave you feeling the sticky residue of wax.
