The Sugaring House is staffed by a licensed aesthetician and technicians well versed in the art of sugar waxing. This hair-removal procedure favors Sugaring House's own sugar paste over wax, which is used to remove body hair while producing less irritation than other methods. The staff services both men and women with hair removal treatments for the full body; they also offer specialty shape-waxing for the bikini area, which yields designs such as landing strips, triangles, and custom lettering. The team also offers anti-aging and acne facials, and the space sets a relaxing tone for the experience with soft-lit private rooms adorned with flowers and plush treatments beds.
The talented stylists of Salon Etoiles bring decades of experience and education to every service they perform. In fact, when they're not snipping bobs into topiary giraffes, arranging locks into wedding-day masterpieces, or imbuing strands with vibrant color, many of the stylists study their craft at seminars and classes. The salon even has a trichologist on staff, whose in-depth knowledge of the science behind hair loss and scalp diseases helps heal ailing strands from the inside out. Guests also rely on the staff for threading and nailcare—as a CND certified salon, Salon Etoiles's in-house nail experts possess a special knack for Shellac manicures and pedicures.

Sugaring Studio Inc. prefers a sweet method of hair removal: sugar. Technicians blend sugar with natural ingredients such as water and lemon juice to create a honey-like paste, which removes unwanted fuzz like traditional wax. But, unlike chemical formulations, the paste may reduce skin irritation, minimize ingrown hairs, and let recipients imagine their knees are cupcakes. When they aren't smoothing bodies with sugaring services, the studio's beauty experts can treat hands and feet to mani-pedis with traditional or gel polish.
