Sugaring hair removal dates back to 1900 BC, it is speculated that the first sugaring compound was made from honey. Sugaring was also called “Sukkar” in the Middle East and Egypt; as “Agda” or “Harem” in Turkey and “Moum” in Iran.  The Mesopotamian royalty required their women to be kept hair free using sugar. Egyptian hieroglyphics describe girls serving the Pharaoh were expected to remove their hair. Hair was considered low class and to be amongst the upper class you had to be hairless! In the Turkish Empire it was an important part of court life to remove body hair which was also considered an art! This tradition has been handed down through generations in the Middle East.
