Hi! I'm Amy!
I'm the face of The Sweetest Thing | Body Sugaring and the person you will see when you come in for your appointments.
The Sweetest Thing is located in the heart of Kensington inside District Studios.
I started my career in the beauty industry over 10 years ago when I went to school to become a Professional Aesthetician and Cosmetician. A couple of years into my aesthetic career I learned the art of Body Sugaring and was immediately hooked! I switched from waxing to sugaring and never looked back.
I moved to Calgary 5 years ago and was shocked to learn the amount of Calgarians who weren't familiar with Body Sugaring.
So here I am to spread the word and share my passion of Body Sugaring! I promise, once you try it you will be hooked too!
Body Sugaring is an ancient form of hair removal that has become increasingly popular in western society.
Sugaring is a natural way to remove unwanted hair and is a safe alternative to other methods such as waxing or laser.
The sugar paste is made of sugar, water and lemon juice which is cooked down to form a thick honey-like paste.
Body Sugaring is traditionally done using the ‘ball’ hand technique where the sugar paste is molded onto the skin against the grain of growth. This method allows the sugar to seep below the surface of the skin, insuring the complete extraction of the hair.
The unwanted hair is removed with a quick but gentle flick of the wrist leaving the skin feeling soft to the touch with no sticky residue.

Whether you're going on vacation or simply don't feel like putting on mascara, the lash tint treatment gives you those "I woke up like this" lashes.
Did you know you can now tint your brows with henna?! Henna gives brows long lasting color and is a natural alternative to tradition tint formulas.

Permanent Makeup eyebrow tattoo
Permanent Makeup eyebrow tattoo created with a 0.25mm Nano needle. Approximately 3-4 hours
This appointment needs to be done after 3 weeks but before 3 months after initial appointment for best results. This touch up is to reinforce hair strokes and to fill in gaps that did not retain colour. This ensures brows look perfect for 1 year. Approximately 1-2 hours.
Recommended to boost colour and maintain shape. For existing clients only. Approximately 3 hours.
We ask that you grow your hair for two weeks from the last time you shaved. The hair should be about 1/4 of an inch (the length of a grain of rice) This will ensure full extraction of the hair.
NO. Unlike other forms of hair removal, sugaring will actually help get rid of ingrown hairs! That being said, it is still important to follow post Sugaring at home skin care.
I don't want to sugar coat things (pun intended) but your first sugaring treatment will be the most sensitive. Once we get you onto a regular schedule the pain will decrease by half and the hair will become fine and patchy.
YES. A woman's cycle and her sugaring appointments don't always align, that's just life. All we ask is you show up to your appointment with a fresh tampon in and we're good to go.
YES. The Sugar paste is natural and chemical free so it's perfectly safe to have sugaring treatments done throughout your pregnancy.. even up to the day before your due!
Everyone is differect, but Sugaring treatments should typically leave your skin feeling silky smooth for 3-4 weeks.
**Almost as important as the Sugaring itself is making sure you take care of your skin before and after your treatment. Here is a guide to refer back to for your skin care do’s an don’ts..
Before your Sugaring treatment…
So you’ve booked your Sugaring appointment. Here is a couple of tips to lessen the pain and increase the longevity of the silky smooth hair free feeling.
After your Sugaring treatment…
You’ve just invested time, money and a little discomfort in order to be hair free – so it makes sense to look after it.
What to expect..
It’s normal immediately after your sugaring treatment to be a little red. For sensitive skin types it is normal to be quite red, have prickly heat-type rash or even have the appearance of hives. This should disappear after a few hours and is normally due to a histamine reaction. This does not mean you are allergic to the sugar! Over time, after regular sugaring treatments your skin should adjust and the frequency of the hives and severity of redness will reduce.
What to avoid..
Because Sugaring removes the hair at the root, It leaves your pores exposed, this is why it is important that you keep the area clean and bacteria free.
3-10 Days after your Sugar
As your skin closes over the follicles, the next consideration is to ensure you prevent ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs can occur when the new baby hair growing in gets trapped under a layer of dry skin. A few simple measures can easily avoid this situation…
