Now Offering Sugaring at Melange!

Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring


Alexandria Professional® Sugaring Formulas are 100% natural. There are no chemical additives, no wax resins as a cheat add-in. AP’s product line is 100% free of paraben, urea, laurel sulfates and petroleum by-products. AP products are not tested on animals and are hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.
Sugar Pastes do not stick to live skin cells. With the Alexandria technique and its unique sugar paste formulation, the sugar paste gently exfoliates only dead skin cells resulting in a much gentler sugaring even on delicate skin tissue areas like eyebrows and bikini.

Advanced Sugaring Treatments are economical. Most clients see an immediate improvement — after the first or second sugaring treatment– in body hair refinement and in many cases diminishment while improving the condition of their skin without the big $$$ tag associated with other body hair removal alternatives.

Our Sugar Pastes are 100% water-soluble. There is no risk of damage or staining to your clothing, and more importantly no damage to your skin. The Alexandria sugar paste is easily washed away after sugaring if needed with lukewarm water. You will leave your sugaring treatments feeling clean and smooth… one less thing for you to worry about!

Trained and certified AP Practitioners massage the Advanced Sugar Paste onto the skin by hand at lukewarm temperature. No risk of burning your skin! This is where the sugaring magic begins to happen. When the sugar paste is massaged onto the skin, it allows the paste to seep into the follicles which in turn allows the body hair to “slide” out more comfortably for a complete extraction without hair breakage. Side effect… some clients actually fall asleep during sugaring. Now that’s smoooooth…!

The Alexandria Sugar Pastes are 100% hygienic. Sugar paste is never re-used and gloves are always worn on both hands. Sugar paste is always discarded after each client is treated. Another great benefit to the Alexandria Sugar Pastes is that bacteria does not breed in high concentrates of sugar eliminating the possibility of cross contamination.

Alexandria Professional®’s Pre & After Care System is very effective. Pre-sugaring and after-sugaring care is essential to eliminate any chance of skin reaction from the actual extraction of body hair. But, that’s only one crucial factor. The other relevance to Pre & After Care is to eliminate skin irritation due to improper skin care before and after sugaring. All AP products have been formulated, tried and tested, and proven extremely safe and effective. None of our products are tested on animals.

No need to shave between sugaring treatments and no need to let your hair grow, grow, grow. The Alexandria Professional® technique requires only 1/16″ (2mm) or less of hair growth for body treatments, eliminating the long wait between salon visits and customer frustration. Every treatment makes your hair easier to extract.

AP BODY SUGARING AND FULL CIRCLE OF SKIN CONDITIONING TREATMENTS WILL…
• eliminate ingrown hair
• prevent new ingrown hair
• extract all hair colors and textures
• successfully treat all skin types and colors
• improve the skin’s tone and texture
• treat various skin problems such as keratosis, eczema, psoriasis, etc…

AP BODY SUGARING WILL NOT…
• burn the skin
• damage the dermal cells
• “pit” the delicate facial skin cells
• scar the follicle mouth or surrounding area
• promote cross contamination
• cause unnecessary discomfort
• cause ingrown hair

Gray Hair, Don’t Care

By Karla Gjini

“There’s a reason why forty, fifty, and sixty don’t look the way they used to, and it’s not because of feminism, or better living through exercise. It’s because of hair dye. In the 1950s only 7 percent of American women dyed their hair; today there are parts of Manhattan and Los Angeles where there are no gray-haired women at all.” Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck

Why do we only see gray hair on men and ultra trendy young women? Where are all the natural silver streaks sprouting out and about? What did you do when you noticed some extra sparkle in your strands? Most women rush to colour their gray hairs as soon as they notice them. You could cover them completely and fool everyone by getting your roots touched up every four to six weeks or so. Some women opt to blend the gray by having highlights and lowlights, camouflaging the antique blonde natural highlights coming through. Others decide to go natural, and forego colour altogether.

Each of these options are fantastic, and we know that what works for some doesn’t work for everyone.

When we use an on scalp colour, you get 100% coverage. This means you can no longer tell your hair is gray as it instead looks a different colour completely. This colour could be something similar to what your natural hair used to look like, or possibly something light so that it’s less noticeable when the roots grow in. With a look like this we may add highlights to give more dimension, but the multi tonal look we get from our Kevin Murphy colour can be gorgeous on its own! While this is the best route if you can’t bear the sight of silver, it does require the most maintenance as we would see you every four to six weeks to keep the colour looking perfect and your roots hidden from view.

The second option is quickly becoming the most popular, as women want something that looks effortless and requires less maintenance. By weaving through highlights and lowlights of different shades, we are able to give you a super shimmering personalized colour that grows out forgivingly. This method looks natural, is easily adjusted to suit your skin tone, and is easy to shift slightly darker or lighter when you need a little something different. Your gray hairs are not completely covered, however, they’re just incorporated into the overall look of the hair. This can be a bit scary for some and it can take several appointments to get there, but once you have this you’ll love it! It only requires touch ups anywhere from eight to ten weeks, since your regrowth comes in blended and subtle. For more examples check us out on Instagram: @melangesalonspa

What about growing out your gray? And why not? We would love to see more women go natural. It’s my personal opinion that we need to all work together to change the perception of what gray hair means for women. I’m sure you’ve noticed that George Clooney is distinguished the more gray *he* gets. Why do most women choose to hide theirs? Why can’t women embrace gray hair, aging, and all the wisdom that comes along with it? We need to celebrate aging for what it is, and flip the script on what the media portrays to us as valuable and beautiful. We need to see more women, young women, older women, with gray hair.

And finally, what about the gray hair trend we’ve seen on celebrities and on Instagram? This is a very cool look that requires the most upkeep of them all! To achieve this, we usually have to go through several stages of lightening to get your hair to a very pale yellow shade. After that, we tone it to eliminate any leftover yellowish tones. The final step is to use a highly concentrated colour such as Pulp Riot to deposit the most flattering shade of grey, tailored to your skin tone and overall look. Because of the nature of this type of color, you can only expect to have it last from around 2-20 washes.

So tell us! Do you have gray hair? What do you do with it?
