Sweet Spot is a hidden gem in Fremont that offers sugaring, a form of hair removal, for both men and women. Considered less painful than waxing, the sugaring process involves applying a warm sugar paste to the hairy area and then whisking the hairs away. The baby blue and gray walls of the salon are offset by bright red accent walls, while local art and an exposed ceiling help to create an urban setting. The salon offers basic facial waxing, as well as back, buttock, leg and even Brazilian waxing. Informative staff provides advice on pre- and post-appointment protocol regarding tanning, workouts and other activities best avoided within hours of service. Free parking, tea and, of course, sweets are offered in the waiting room, soothing newbies’ nerves and relaxing returning regulars.
