LATB Tries Out “Sugaring” At NYC’s Hibba Spa


There is just so much body prepping before putting on that bathing suit and exposing the 8 months hidden-from-sun skin! One of the steps is getting rid of the unwanted hair, that why I turned to Hibba for help.

Hibba has been in the hair removal business for 10 years and just 4 months ago opened her own salon on 448 West Broadway where she operates alone.



I went to Hibba to try out sugaring, which is less painful than wax and as effective, but being a self-proclaimed Browologist, Hinna threaded my eyebrows as well and I am loving my new eyebrow arch.

Not only was my Brazilian/full leg/eyebrow threading experience fast and most importantly as painless as can be, it was also relaxing and can I say fun?

Fun is not the first word that pops to anyone’s mind when ripping hair out of your body entails, but Hibba’s youth and upbeat personality made it so much more enjoyable. She even has her own iPod shuffle playing with everything from Indian music to Rihanna.

Hibba NYC’s company motto is “Go Green with Threading” using only natural cotton thread for threading and offering a choice between two natural waxes, Sugaring and Azulene.

Hibba Salon operates every day except for Mondays, on which days she donates her services for a charity organizations.
