Why do YOUR students give up on hair removal?
For many years we had been exhibiting at trade shows asking salon professionals what kind of hair removal they did. To our great surprise we kept meeting large numbers of salon professionals who either didn't do ANY hair removal or just eyebrows/upper lips. We wanted to know more so we asked:
"Did you attend a inadequate school?" "Oh, no" was the answer.
"Did your teachers fail to teach you properly?" "No, we had fantastic teachers."
"Did you do hair removal in the school clinic?" "Yes we did."
So we had to ask them. "What happened?" The reply was a revelation to us, but not really surprising:
"It was scary being all on your own, at your new job, knowing that if you made a mistake you would hurt someone, take off skin, maybe get fired. The thing with wax/resin/soy products is once you apply it you have no time, you have to get it off immediately even if you've over applied. It became easier to leave the hair removal to someone more experienced."
In other words, all these salon workers had a problem with the PRODUCT, not the PROCESS, and we decided to find a solution!
Realizing that the methodology was not at fault, just inadequate products - wax/resin/soy, we worked to develop the Sugar 'n Strip System® - products that are easy to teach, easy to use, never stick to skin just hair, and clean up with plain tap water.
Next, we approached schools for their help. We believe that educators will lead our industry forward. We support your goal of producing graduates that are successful, are gainfully employed, earn a respectable living and enjoy what they do. After trying our product,
“One day, while watching a class of our students learning to wax eyebrows, one of the students spilled a large dollop in the middle of another student’s eyebrow. Chaos reigned while people looked for the solvent to remove the wax. Extreme care was needed to leave as many hairs as possible so as not to ruin the girl’s appearance. Even using their very best efforts they were only partially successful.
Coincidentally, Salon Sugar® products was scheduled that day to demonstrate their Sugar ‘n Strip® system. The educator, Kate Riley, showed everyone how the student has complete control over the Sugar ‘n Strip® paste. The students were amazed that not only did it remove very short hairs, but it didn’t remove any skin layers. Equally impressive, the students could take as long as they wanted to shape the eyebrow perfectly. Finally, mistakes or clean-up of any extra sugar was easily done with plain tap water.
I was so impressed I never used wax in the school again.” Judy, The Aesthetics Academy
These great results inspired us to produce a complete Program specifically designed for schools; utilizing the Sugar 'n Strip System®. Our 3 exclusive paste strengths can be used in almost the same way as wax/resin/soy, and have been formulated for use on the three hair types: Vellous, Intermediate and Terminal.
Another feature of our exclusive program is the availability of Power Point, Lesson Plans, Treatment Guides, certificates, USB drives and online
accessible professionally produced videos (no silly uTube) for the students and the teachers. Our Treatment Guides/Exams/Certificates
are available in English, Spanish and French. We are also happy to arrange onsite education at a reasonable cost if you require it. This
allows the school to pass on their new Sugar 'n Strip® expertise to the students - confident in the knowledge that the products and techniques
are fully compliant with State Board requirements. You will be able to teach your students the simple unique techniques in only a
Our safety and hygiene standards combined with the extremely low chance of liability meet the highest State/Provincial Board/OSHA requirements, and our easy to understand method makes this a natural fit for school curricula. Let's face it, who likes "sticking" to the wax room floor, cleaning the nasty mess, wasted, ruined towels and treatment tables? This product cleans up completely with PLAIN TAP WATER! What a pleasure to work with.
