Hi I am Sue Philip I am the director of The Sugaring Academy. I trained to do the original hand method of Sugaring 28 years ago!!!!! I happened to read an article in my local paper about a woman who was Sugaring in my vicinity and it looked interesting, so along I went for a half leg treatment. I was so taken by the result my legs felt silky soft for weeks, so I phoned the lady and asked where she had trained. The rest is history! I trained in Bournemouth with Zahra (the original lady to bring it over here I think). My training went on for over 3 months! 4 days in Bournemouth, home for 4 weeks to practice, back to Bournemouth for 4 days, home for 4 weeks to practice then back for 3 days for assessment and it cost me a small fortune….. At the time I was teaching Home Economics Food & Nutrition, and being a qualified nutritionist people were quite shocked when I told them I was now Sugaring. Everyone I trained with were housewives not beauty therapists, they were setting up their own businesses to work around family life usually from a spare room in the house. The reason that not many salons offer Sugaring by hand is because it is not cost effective for them because the treatment takes much longer than waxing and the results are longer lasting. So when a client says to me “shall I book the next treatment for 3 or 4 weeks’ time” I say I don’t know see when the hairs start to grow back…. Now that says something….. I also teach Sugaring (not as drawn out as my training or as expensive!) but a very intense 3 day course which runs over a month or six weeks depending on the students confidence.

Sugaring, the ancient art of hair removal, uses a sugar paste which is 100% natural. The original method is done by hand, this is the method utilised at The Academy. It is the perfect treatment for removing long hairs, short hairs and dead skin cells, leaving the skin feeling soft and silky for weeks.
