It’s that time of the year again!

The elections are done and the holiday season is already beginning.  2020 has been surreal to say the least and now seeing holiday decorations and everyone preparing for the holidays feels a bit too soon, but here it is!

HOLIDAY GIFT CARDS ARE BAAAAACK! – We know so many of you wait all year for our holiday gift card promotion so we are excited to offer it again this year!  For those of you that are new to this promotion, for every $100 gift card you buy, you will get an extra $20 value.  We are going to be doing things a bit differently this year (think more automated) which will be good for all so stay tuned for more details for this upcoming promotion!

WHERE IS MY SPECIALIST? – Some of our Specialists are in multiple locations or their schedules have changed quite a bit from before so we thought we would dedicate a page on our website to help you find your favorites. This way, you’ll know where your preferred Specialist is located along with which days she will be at that location.  Click here for an easy reference to standard schedules for the specialists you know and love.

LASER SEASON IS HERE! – Laser season officially started. Why are the fall and winter seasons, laser seasons?  When you are going through laser treatments, you will want to stay out of the sun and because we tend to cover up more during these seasons, it is the ideal time for you to either start or continue your laser journey.  If you have been wondering if you should get laser, it is a perfect opportunity to sign up for a FREE REMOTE laser consultation with one of our specialists and have all of your questions answered. If you can’t find a time available for your virtual laser consultation at your preferred location, try booking at another location since it’s a remote service and received from the comfort of home. Your subsequent service visit does not have to match the location where you book your remote consultation! You can also call us at 212.931.8363 and we will help you book your remote appointment.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! – CANCELLATION POLICY DEBATE – As many of you know, we played around with having a cancellation policy when we first returned because all of our salons have to be at reduced capacity to follow state guidelines.  We have been having a lot of last-minute cancellations and also clients taking up multiple slots on the schedule which is leaving some clients out in the cold without having an appointment.  We know things can come up, but for the sake of other clients and also our team since everyone is working limited hours and with limited availability due to the extra time updated cleaning protocols are taking, please give us notice of 24 hours for cancellations.  Our team and the other clients thank you!  To make this easier, we are going to send out reminders a couple of times.  One reminder two days in advance so that if your plans have changed you can cancel at that time giving us a bit more notice and allowing the schedule to fill up again.

Here are some links to our previous emails if you have questions about our safety protocols (we have a video), missing laser sessions and doing your own sugaring at home if you are not quite ready to come back.

Wishing you and yours health and happiness as we start the holiday season!

Take care,

Shobha

Shobha Sugaring Kit

Tips and Tricks to effectively use the Shobha Sugaring Kit!

Thank you to everyone that has bought the sugaring kit over the last few months! We want to make it as easy as possible for you to continue your hair removal routine at home if you are just starting.  After doing some consultations with a few of you, we have realized that a lot of folks are having the same question or issue so we created some tips and tricks for using your sugaring kit to make it easier.

Challenge: The sugaring wax doesn’t seem to be working

We know DIY waxing can be tricky, especially if you aren’t experienced at hair removal. Rest assured, sugar wax works!  We have been using it in our salons for over 15 years on thousands of clients.  With a few simple tweaks of how you are using it, we will get you on the road to hairless happiness too!

Tip: Check the following to use your sugar wax to its highest potential (consistency, application, adherence, quick removal):

Consistency – Make sure sugar wax has a honey-like consistency. Do not overheat the sugar wax. Heat the jar with the top removed in the microwave for 30-35 seconds. The consistency should not be watery.

Application – Apply sugar wax in a thin, consistent layer. Don’t put too much sugar wax on your skin that it is going through the fabric strip.

Make sure the sugar wax adheres to the fabric strip – Press the strip firmly wherever you’ve applied sugaring wax.  Rub back and forth a few times to make sure it adheres well.

Use force when removing the strip – don’t just peel it off. Make sure you use force when pulling the fabric strip so it removes quickly and thoroughly; don’t just pull it back gingerly

Challenge: I am getting a lot of ingrown hairs and/or my hair is growing back quickly

Tip: Apply the sugaring wax in smaller sections – When you apply the sugar wax to in large strips and try to remove the hair, sometimes the hair breaks instead of it being removed from the root.  Unfortunately, this can result in the hair growing back faster and/or ingrown hairs because the hair is breaking under the skin and then getting trapped underneath.  Apply the sugar wax in small sections and pull your skin taut and remove the hair. That will ensure that all the hair is being removed from the root.

Tip: Trim hair that is too long – Another reason the hair could be breaking is that the hair is too long.  If your hair is longer than a quarter-inch, we recommend trimming it.  It will ensure you remove the hair from the root, but it will also reduce the pain that you feel.

Challenge: I am getting some bruising when I remove the hair

Tip: Pull your skin taut while removing the strip to prevent bruising and minimize discomfort. The skin is being pulled when you are removing the strip if you are not pulling your skin taut resulting in bruising especially if the skin is loose in the area.  The most common areas to bruise are under your arms and bikini area.

Challenge: I can’t visualize what it looks like

Tip: Watch our videos on IG TV – @myshobha or our youtube channel – Shobha Hair Removal. It really helps to see what the process looks like once!

Challenge: I’m not sure how to clean my muslin/denim strips

Tip: Hand-wash fabric strips for reuse. Another great benefit of sugaring over waxing is that the sugar wax is water-soluble.  We recommend hand-wash versus throwing the strips in the washing machine.

Challenge: I’m making a mess

Tip: To avoid drips – Dip your spatula in the container of sugar wax, wipe sugar wax from one side of the spatula and then slowly twirl the spatula until you are ready to apply.

Challenge: I spilled some sugaring wax on my counter/jar/tub

Tip: Warm water easily cleans up spills. Because the sugar wax is water-soluble, you can use a wet washcloth and a bit of soap and it will all come off.

Challenge: I am still having trouble getting the technique down

Tip: Sign up for our free consultation sessions via email/phone/video so we can give you 1:1 help.  We know this can be tricky sometimes and want to make it as easy as possible for you!
