L.A. Bikini is capitalizing on the ever-growing hair removal industry by offering body sugaring services. Sugaring is a fast-growing form of hair removal because it’s effective and all-natural. Sugaring is also versatile — it can be done on bikini areas, facial skin (brow, lip, chin, full face), and all areas of the body (face, torso, underarm, arm and leg as well as the delicate bikini area). Unlike a traditional Brazilian or hot wax process, L.A. Bikini uses a specially formulated, all-natural sugar paste that goes on cool and bonds only to hair, not to skin. Sugar hair removal is less painful and less traumatic to skin than the waxing process and as such is experiencing huge growth in the beauty sector.

As the first franchise to market in the sugar paste hair removal industry, L.A. Bikini is positioning itself on a path to franchise growth and success. We’re serious about our business, and we expect our franchisees to be just as serious about serving customers and making money. Here’s what you can expect from an L.A. Bikini franchise:

Body Sugaring

L.A. Bikini offers a multitude of body sugaring services for members and guests. Sugaring can be done on bikini areas, facial skin (brow, lip, chin, full face), and all areas of the body (torsos, underarm, arm, leg). Unlike a traditional Brazilian or hot wax process, L.A. Bikini uses a specially-formulated, all-natural sugar paste that goes on cool and bonds only to hair, not to skin.

Body sugaring is a safe, gentle, and effective process that has been used for centuries in other cultures. It extracts hair in its natural direction of growth – which eliminates breakage, unnecessary discomfort, irritation and ingrown hairs. The process also exfoliates dry skin cells, leaving skin smooth and refreshed.

Skin Care Products

L.A. Bikini promotes and sells The Full Circle Skin Conditioning™ system, including four products designed to keep skin looking and feeling its best.

Spray Tanning

L.A. Bikini also offers spray tanning services to complement its hair removal and skin care line.

5 star Absolutely love this place! From hair removal and spray tanning there’s no better place to go. I have been a loyal customer for years and have never once had a bad experience. As someone who always looked orange or had weird hands this spray tan I look like I just came home from a week at the beach. The sugaring is such a great alternative to traditional waxing. It’s great for sensitive skin and it’s painless! There staff has always been so welcoming and ensures you have a great experience. If I had one complaint it’s having to wait forever for any hair to grow back to come in for more sugaring! I recommend this place to anyone!
