Manage multiple projects at a full-time job. Schedule time to catch up with dear friends and loved ones. Squeeze in a sweat session.

And women do it all while looking fabulous.

But busy lives crammed with demanding schedules makes it quite difficult to stay looking and feeling powder fresh on a daily basis, so that’s where beauty salons are a savior.

Sugarista, as the name suggests, is a salon which specializes in the beauty technique known as “sugaring.” For those uninitiated, sugaring is a type of hair removal practiced in Persia centuries ago. These days it’s blown up internationally thanks to the fact that it’s organic, biodegradable, and hypoallergenic, in addition to being a less painful form of hair removal than waxing.

Using only organic sugaring products from London-based brand Tamara, this cute salon is one of the newest on the scene and has an incredibly friendly team of staff led by the lovely Hikari, a bilingual beauty therapist with over 16 years of experience. Located in the quiet neighborhood of Yutenji near Nakameguro, Sugarista also offers lessons in sugaring for keen beauty students. Get in now before they get too popular!
