Ladies who like to keep it glam have a new option for beauty enhancement in Ridgewood.

Glam Sugaring Boutique is a full-service beauty salon offering skincare treatments and hair removal by “sugaring” technique. Adventurous women can also find a few non-traditional intimate treatments for hair care “down there.”


The boutique is the vision of owner Monica Moyet, a trained esthetician who holds a certification from The Atelier Esthetique Institute of Esthetics. In May of this year, she began renting the basement space of Europa Hair Salon on Ridgewood’s Myrtle Avenue as an oasis for glam neighborhood women (and men!).

As you wind your way through Europa hair salon and down a small set of stairs to the glam basement, you might feel that you’ve taken a wrong turn. But once you glide down candle-lit staircase, and Monica welcomes you with a smile and hug, you’ll feel right at home. Downstairs, it’s bright and girly, with design posters galore, cute plush pillows, and pink accents.

With a undisputed 5-star rating on Yelp, Ridgewood women seem to agree: the set-up is “super adorable,” (Christina F) “cute and inviting,”(Kathleen D) and an all-around “AMAZING EXPERIENCE!” (Amber V).

The salon offers all sorts of beauty treatments but the main emphasis is on hair removal by sugaring. If you’ve never heard of it, sugaring is an ancient and all-natural hair removal method that is less taxing than waxing. Rumored to be invented by Cleopatra, the sugar goo is made of sugar, lemon, and water to create a wax-like goo that is used to remove hair. Sugaring pulls hair straight from the root without pulling skill out. While it sounds exotic, the treatment is less painful than wax and provides better results.

It’s gaining popularity as a holistic beauty trend among celebrities as well as Ridgewood locals, whom Moyet refers to as her “Sugar Babies” and features on the Glam Instagram. While they offer sugaring of every body part, literally from eyebrow to toe, the most popular treatments are for the intimate regions. Glam Sugaring boutique is also proudly the first place in Ridgewood to offer vejazzling ($10) alongside your Brazilian sugaring ($65).

If you’re really feeling like you need a makeover down under, they even offer a full “vajacial,” which is a 5 step nourishing treatment that includes sugaring and intimate skin lightening!

Besides the classic hair removal (and adornment) options, there are other beauty and skincare pick-me-ups to explore. YUMI Lash keratin treatments ($150 intro price) are the salon’s second-most popular offering. Like “push up bras” for the lashes and will keep your lashes long and lustrous without mascara for 8-12 weeks. Also try the Hungarian mud mask ($15) if you’re seeking fresh, soft skin.

So, ladies: if getting primped and pampered is your thing, you may have found your hair-removal Mecca!

Glam Sugaring Boutique is located in the basement inside of Europa Hair Design at 60-46 Myrtle Avenue in Ridgewood. Hours are Monday through Wednesday 10 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.;   Thursday and Friday  10 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Saturday 9:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.
