Sugar Moon Salon

371 Danforth Ave, Main, Toronto, ON M4K 1P1

The experts at this unique skin care studio use a variety of hair-removal techniques for men and women seeking a smooth surface area.

The ancient Egyptian method of hair removal is performed with a sugar paste made with sugar, lemon and water; the all-natural material is 100 per cent biodegradable and an ideal alternative for those who suffer from sensitive skin. The studio also offers Nufree (a botanical, anti-bacterial hair-removal system) and hair-removal treatments with a Soprano XL laser.

For a tidier look below the belt, daring dudes clean up with a “manzilian” or opt for a full “brozillian” for a totally smooth look from front to back.
