Our History

An absolute first: a shop dedicated to body hair removal exclusively for men by male therapists. Body hair removal by the most effective and least painful method possible, the ancient art of sugaring.

Back in the early 90`s, I tracked down the ‘Egyptian Woman’ who brought sugaring to England about 15 years prior and who agreed to train me in the art of sugaring, specifically for use on men.

Men’s hair growth being much stronger and obviously in greater quantity than women’s, I wanted a technique that would be at least as effective as waxing, whilst less painful. I found that and more in sugar.

I opened my first Sugaring Studio for men, in a gym complex in Covent Garden and a year later, opened another studio in a gym in London`s Russell Square.

By this time our clientele had grown from the original gym goers and the body-conscious, to guys from all walks of life. Many of our clients come from various European countries as well as the USA, who tie in a treatment with regular business trips and vacations in London.

The first branch of the Sugar Shop opened in Paddington London W2 . Now situated in the vibrant, trendy area of Shoreditch/Spittalfields, close to the City of London and Liverpool Street E1.
