Why Sugarbox is better than the others

Experience and Expertise

Collectively our Waxers have over 85 years of experience, and dedication to our craft. Considering the majority of our requested service are Brazilians, that’s an incredible amount of waxing. In that time, we have also tried and experimented with many varieties of wax types, temperatures, and other hair removal forms. Our services are refined by an incredible amount of effort and investment to our trade to offer you the best of our skills.


Just because you see implements in liquid doesn’t mean they’re clean. The solution we use for our tweezers and trimming scissors is a high level disinfectant and chemosterilant. It rids all things sporicidal, tuberculocidal and fungicidal.

Single Dipping Every Time

Double dipping is one of the most disgusting waxing practices. Imagine, after a long day of dozens of clients, you happen to be the lucky recipient of the bottom of a wax pot. Skin cells, hair, bacteria, fungus, blood, mucous membranes, fecal matter and you came in for just an upper lip wax? Think about it. Say no to double dipping, no matter what type of waxing it may be.

Fresh Products

After a long day at work or rushing around town, we want you to feel your best and freshest. We have cleansing wipes, deodorant, yummy perfumes, and anti-bacterial foot sprays available to you in each treatment room and our bathroom facility for your comfort and convenience.

Clean Linens and Sterile Surfaces

You never know who’s touching what when we’re not in the room. Cross contamination isn’t sexy. We spray down every hard surface with a product designed to eliminate fungal, bacterial, viral and blood infections. Every stick that goes in that wax pot, cotton swab or strip that touches your body is disposed of between waxes so you can rest assured our waxing is super clean. If you’re feeling environmental and don’t need to be draped, place your towel to the side; otherwise everything is laundered. Every time.

Continuing Education and Research

We adore this industry, so collectively we are searching for new and interesting products and perpetually working on our skill sets. We do so on our travels around the world, or being in tune to upcoming trends. We’re dedicated to growing and refining so we can be the most outstanding waxing boutique for you and the leaders in our field.

Jane Brookes


This waxing die-hard started Sugarbox in june 2006 after realizing there were no other dedicated wax boutiques in Vancouver at that time and the demand was obvious. Jane became an Aesthetician in 1999 in Ontario, where she spent a few years and was trained in Brazilian waxing. Upon moving back to Vancouver, she started a career with Spa Utopia and introduced them to the waxing style she couldn’t live without. In 2005 she left Spa Utopia and pursued medical aesthetics with Yaletown Laser Centre, where she expanded her knowledge in skin resurfacing and laser hair removal (which comes in handy if you have any ingrown hair, scarring or skin concerns). Sugarbox has grown organically over the years with a faithful clientele, and a dedicated team of loyal waxers. Friends make this boutique unlike any other – it feels like home. *PLEASE NOTE: As of September 2016 Jane has taken a hiatus from Sugarbox as an Aesthetician to persue other dreams. She is still our fearless leader and owner and will pop in from time to time for hugs and kisses*
