SUGARMOON is celebrating its 10th year! It is hard to believe how quickly times flies. What started out as a labour of love project with a two-woman partnership and a $10,000 loan from my mom has now blossomed into a fifteen staff member, two store growing operation. I am truly grateful to work with the women of SUGARMOON.
I am totally passionate about sugaring and have trained over 60 people from many parts of Ontario and the United States. We have now opened the SUGARMOON ACADEMY with training dates posted for most of 2013. This is really an exciting time!
We are very proud to have launched our professional brand of products, along with our Organics Body line and the first SUGARMOON take home kit to allow you to be a successful sugarist at home! Stay tuned we have a lot planned for 2013.
Outside of SUGARMOON, I enjoy hanging out with my lovely kids Elias (9) and Sofia (4), traveling, cooking, playing piano, sipping a fine glass of wine (or 2) and enjoying time with friends and family!
My name is Cailey Ward, and I’m the SUGARMOON manager as well as a technician. Ever since I met Paola in 2007 I’ve known that sugaring is the way to go, so a few years ago I decided I’d had enough of the corporate life and put my chatty nature to good use.
I’ve always been a spa girl and fascinated by skin care, so working with the great people at SUGARMOON is a perfect fit for me.
I’m originally from Ottawa and moved to Toronto a little over ten years ago. I’ve been married since 2007 to a guy who (fortunately) is a bit of a book nerd and movie groupie like me. I like to spend my free time reading, watching too many movies and dreaming up future home renovations.
There are many joys in life, but for me the greatest will always be people! After graduating from Hospitality Management, I was able to combine my devotion for customer service with my appetite for well-being by working in health-conscious food establishments. I am actively studying to evolve as a Certified Natural Health Practitioner. My intention is to help create individualized and sustainable plans that harmonize body, mind and spirit. With emphasis on Energetic Medicine such as Reiki (I'm a Level 2 Practitioner), Chakra Balancing, Crystal Therapy and healing through Aromatherapy, Homeopathy and Nutritional Symptomology.
In my free time I continue my quest for spreading cheer by playing my ukulele and drawing, donating all proceeds from art sales to implement Clean Water Sanitation Systems in poverty-ridden communities.
I’m happy as can be that this path of mine has brought me to SUGARMOON and I look forward to continuing my journey alongside such lovely coworkers & clients alike. When you see me around feel free to say hi, ask me those curious health questions, or make ukulele requests!
Hi everyone, I'm Amanda! I have been working in the esthetic and beauty industry for 10 years. I am trained and certified as an Esthetician and makeup artist and I love what I do. To me, making people look and feel great is the ultimate high.
I am so excited to embark on a new chapter of my life at SUGARMOON. Please say hi if you see me at either of the locations - I can't wait to meet each and every one of our amazing clients!
When I'm not working you can find me channeling my inner nerd by doing research on any and every topic imaginable... I love random facts, and my family and friends! Live life to the fullest.... over and out :)
Hello! My name is Cricel. I am a graduate of Sutherland-Chan and have been a therapist since 2004.
As a therapist I believe that incorporating both relaxation and therapeutic massage is the best form of treatment. It helps to create balance within the body and self.
I joined the SUGARMOON Family in 2008 as a Massage Therapist. I became intrigued with learning how to sugar and four years later here I am a Sugarist!
Outside of SUGARMOON, I enjoy being outdoors and I try to get out of the city whenever I get the chance. I am an avid camper, with Algonquin being one of my favourite places to pitch a tent. Aside from that, I really enjoy reading a good book on my down time and practising Pilates.
Come in and see me to give you silky smooth skin. Be well!
My name is Lindsay Empacher. I graduated from Marca College with Honors in 2008, and I’ve been at SUGARMOON ever since!
I’m completely in love with what I do, and ever since starting at
SUGARMOON I’ve been practicing on my husband with sugar instead of wax. The results are so much better and the process is so much more fun for me. I’m also passionate about Skin Care, and always keep my skills up-to-date via courses at Dermalogica, and I love working with makeup, both keeping me close to my girly side. My bathroom has a cupboard filled to the brim with creams and cleansers that I’m mildly addicted to, and I’m pretty sure my husband uses them when I’m not looking.
I live in Leaside, and have a young son named Travis and a wonderful husband named Matt. Ask me about Vampires, Saturday Night Live, Evanescence and Starbucks Coffee and I could go on for days.
PS…. Go Team Jacob!!
Before joining SUGARMOON I attended the Yorkville School of Makeup and Esthetics, where I took Skin Care studies and learned everything I know about this industry.
My favourite part of being a SUGARMOON technician is that I get to help my clients feel great in their skin, there is nothing more rewarding than knowing you've made someone’s day and seeing them leave with a smile. Here at SUGARMOON we are a little family and the most amazing part is that our clients also become part of our family.
Our new College street location is amazing. It’s in the heart of the city pretty and close to the shopping district so as you can imagine, I do look forward to going to work everyday!
On my spare time I try to get outdoors as much as possible and go camping or on road trips. I love travelling and hope to one day go backpacking across Europe.
SUGARMOON has embraced this small town girl and brought her to the big city to join a fabulous team of ladies! For years I have been sugaring friends family and clients in the Niagara region and just recently taken the leap of faith into the big city meeting all of our amazing clients and staff. The art of sugaring has not only allowed me to pamper those around me but also reduce the sales or those dreaded razors! Ouch!
Introduced to sugaring by a great friend, I will never forget the amazing journey I have been on and glad I am now part of the SUGARMOON team.
In my spare time you can find me reading a book, planning my next travel destination or walking along the waterfront in Burlington with my adopted dog Lyc.
Growing up, I knew I wanted a career where I can help and give back to others. After high school, I studied Pharmacy Assistant at Sheridan College, but halfway through my program, I realized it wasn’t for me. After years in and out of school, I finally found a field I’m passionate about. Now, I am a certified Esthetician, graduated with honours from Seneca College. Being an esthetician has given me the opportunity to do what I love: helping others - in beauty and wellness.
Before joining SUGARMOON, I worked in retail for many years for a diverse range of organizations including Apple Inc, Guess Canada, and Aldo Shoes. Working in retail has allowed me to develop strong customer service skills and the ability to create lasting relationships with customers as well as team members. I am ecstatic to meet everybody and share my passion about skincare and the esthetics world with you.
During my past time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, watching movies and shopping. During the summer, I like playing sports like volleyball, golf and kayaking in the lake. And I love to cook!
Hi! My name is Adriane. I graduated from Sheridan College for Esthetics and have been sugaring for over 10 years. I am from the Niagara area and just moved to Toronto to experience this wonderful city! Suagring is my passion and I really enjoy making people feel great about themselves. I am so excited to be apart of the SUGARMOON team and meet everyone ! In my free time I enjoy experiencing different parts of the city, having a nice glass of wine and spending time with family and friends. Another one of my passions is cooking/baking, I make cheesecakes in my free time for all of the people who have a sweet tooth. I enjoy cuddling with my main man Russell, my dog, all the time!
My name is Ann. I am a graduate of Seneca College's Esthetician program and have been working since 2011.
I went into this field because I was mainly interested in skin care, which drove me to pursue my studies at Seneca College. I have loved gaining experience in this field and meeting a lot of great people that are very positive and passionate about the things they do. This had encouraged me to explore more deeply into the esthetic world.
What I love most about being an esthetician is to help others feel great by providing them the service they need to get the look they want. SUGARMOON has provided me the training and place to meet new people.
During my spare time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, watching movies, and shopping. In the future, I hope to travel around the world.
Hi! I’m Allison. I grew up in the small city of Welland, I am an only child, and after many years of shaving almost daily I have come to very much dislike it. Fortunately for me, a family friend who owned her own salon introduced me to sugaring when I was growing up. After moving to Toronto I found SUGARMOON in 2009 and instantly I was hooked. Now, I am thrilled to have been a part of the SUGARMOON team since 2011. Here, I am constantly inspired by clients and co-workers to strive to do my best, both in and out of the salon.
I have always had a passion for helping people, for which I have my parents to thank. I am currently part way through a degree in psychology and women/gender studies at the University of Toronto. My goal is to combine a career of counseling with massage therapy and skin care - two very different careers, but the end result is to help in every way possible.
On my free time I enjoy running, skiing (yes, I do love winter), and curling up with my very fluffy cat. If you have any questions about sugaring or any of the products we carry, feel free to ask me anything. I’m Allison, and how can I help you?
