Hey Sugar!: An Organic Waxing Salon

A few months ago, Hey Sugar Waxing Salon opens its first branch in Cagayan de Oro at the 2nd Floor of Centrio Ayala Mall. I’m not into waxing but one thing that got my attention was the word “Organic Waxing”. This means that I don’t have to worry about chemical reactions especially that I have sensitive skin and I am prone to allergies. This made me really happy. 
Hey Sugar Waxing Salon is carefully decorated making it a more inviting place for pampering and relaxation. When it comes to hygiene and cleanliness, you will find that the salon has tidy treatment rooms and fresh bed sheets and towels. Privacy of all clients are also a priority. 
They also have trained and experienced staff. Being waxed ‘down there’ or just even on your pits can be a bit daunting but their staff will explain to you the procedure in a friendly manner making you comfortable and relaxed while being waxed. 
Hey Sugar! offers Face Waxing, Arm and Leg Waxing, Body Waxing, Bikini and Brazilian Waxing. Other services is available including Threading and Eyelash Enhancement.
