No one knows lady grooming like Raquel Souza. The Brazilian-born beauty brought the ancient art of sugaring hair removal to Atlanta, opening the first Sweet Peach Wax & Sugaring Studio in Virginia Highlands in 2012 along with a second location in Buckhead in 2014. Sweet Peach has attracted a loyal following, including numerous media personalities and A-list celebs.
A licensed esthetician with advanced training (not to mention her Brazilian upbringing), Raquel is Atlanta’s sugaring expert and had been named the Best of Atlanta in local and national publications. With her approachable attitude and compelling personality, she ensures that clients have the most comfortable experience possible in a pristine environment. Her method of hair removal is all natural (the paste is just sugar, lemon, and water), and since the sugar only sticks to the hair (not the skin) and pulls in the direction of hair growth, you get a gentler experience sans redness, irritation or ingrown hairs and are left with soft, silky, hair-free skin.
Raquel has personally trained each of the team members at Sweet Peach and they will put you at ease, respect your privacy, and treat you like a VIP whether it’s your first time or you’re one of our loyal regulars. At Sweet Peach you can rest assured that we do not re-use product; we sanitize everything, and we replace beds with fresh covers between clients. We have a passion in serving our lovely clients and are honored to helping them “stay peachy!”
