SUGARMOON is celebrating its 12th 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 20 staff member, four 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 to help open new franchises in Canada and abroad.

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!

I have teamed up with Cailey to open up GROOM, Toronto's 1st hair removal studio for men only launching at the end of the year. We are really excited to be able to extend our expert advice in a low key and professional environment.

Outside of SUGARMOON, I enjoy hanging out with my lovely kids Elias (10) and Sofia (5), jumping on the trampoline, reading, playing piano, cooking with friends and family, dreaming up my next business idea, planning a trip...and my favourite, having a glass of nice wine or a really good scotch:).

General Manager
I've been a SUGARMOON team member since 2009 and have gotten to wear many hats in that time as a technician, manager and partner and it's been such a sweet ride!

We’ve grown from a single salon to three locations in Toronto, have created our own line of body care and a Take Home Sugaring Kit. Paola always has wonderful and fun business ideas and it's been a joy to help make her dreams happen! Thanks to Paola, all the amazing people working at SUGARMOON and our wonderful clients, my job is always fun.

I’m originally from Ottawa and moved to Toronto about 15 years ago. I’ve been married since 2007 to a wonderful 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, looking at art and dreaming up future home renovations.

My name is Kiara Ventrella and I first stumbled upon Sugarmoon on my way home from a fitness class. I went in and found the atmosphere and people to be so inviting and positive. As a recent fashion design graduate I knew Sugarmoon would be a perfect balance and compliment my creative side.
Hola!!! It's my pleasure to introduce myself as a member of the SUGARMOON team. I would describe myself as a very creative, joyful and kind person, whom is a good listener. The things that I cherish the most in my life are my family and books. I also enjoy hearing good stories about life in general. I’m enthusiastic to share my belief about life with anyone that is interested in knowing, why I see life in a different way. I’m also very passionate about esthetics, to me it is more than my profession it is my hobby. I just love making people look and feel gorgeous inside out.
Hi! I'm Asia and I'm a receptionist at SUGARMOON. I've been a client for years and was ecstatic when I found out I would have the opportunity to work here. Everyone is so positive, helpful, caring, and as soon as you walk in you can feel such amazing happy energy! I love meeting and interacting with new people and working in such a great environment. In my spare time I love to play lacrosse, workout, care for my pets, and cook


My journey with SUGARMOON began in the mid 2000’s as a client. After getting serviced for a few years, I became intrigued with how to sugar. After learning the art of sugaring I became a casual team member late 2007 and then officially joined this family in 2008. I now work as both a technician and trainer at SUGARMOON.
I have always enjoyed helping people and making them feel good about themselves. As a Registered Massage Therapist outside of SUGARMOON and being able to sugar people, I can achieve this on both a beauty and wellness level.
Outside of SUGARMOON, I enjoy traveling, cooking, and being outdoors. I try to get out of the city whenever I get the chance as my husband and I are avid campers. But most of all, I just really enjoy sending time with loved ones and reading a good book with a great drink on hand ;)
Hi, I am Elaine and have been a client at Sugarmoon for the last 12 years! I have always loved the atmosphere and staff at the salon! I was so excited when Paola asked if I would be interested in working at the Danforth store as a part-time Receptionist! I had worked as a Legal Assistant for 20 years before deciding to change my career around and become a part-time worker and a full-time Mom to my two daughters, Claudia and Lucy! As they are older, I am now able to work while they are at school and yet still be able to walk them every morning! I am so excited to be a part of this awesome team and group of wonderful people! I love meeting new people and seeing a lot of familiar faces from the neighbourhood every time I am working at Sugarmoon! During my free time, I love spending time with my husband, Mugsy, Claudia, Lucy and our family and friends! I love to just be with people!

Executive Assistant to Paola


My name is Jennifer Kelly and I am excited to be starting a new chapter in my life working at SUGARMOON. I have been part of watching it grow for the past 11 years and now I am a part of this great team!

I love working with people. I am compassionate person and spent many years working with mentally and physically challenged adults. For the past 5 years I have been raising two amazing boys Cole and Kyle with my husband Tim who has turned them both into die hard Leaf fans;).

In my spare time I love to scrapbook, read, spend time with friends and go on adventures with my family.

Sugarist/Customer Care


Hi! I’m Allison. I am thrilled to have been a part of the SUGARMOON team since 2011. I was introduced to sugaring by a family friend in my hometown of Welland and then found SUGARMOON when I moved to Toronto. Originally starting as an administrator, I have since learned how to sugar through our SUGARMOON academy and now am lucky to be part of both our sugaring and admin teams.

I have always had a passion for helping people, for which I have my parents to thank. I love being able to give people that “hair-free” feeling. Here, I am constantly inspired by clients and co-workers to strive to do my best, both in and out of the salon.

I enjoy winter, watching bad movies and curling up with my very fluffy cat. If you have any questions about sugaring or any of the products we carry, please feel free to ask me anything.

My love for cosmetics was instilled from early childhood. Having 5 older sisters, playing with makeup and receiving beauty tips was an everyday thing. It was only natural for me to become an Esthetician. Early into my career I was introduced to organic and natural based skincare, since then I fell in love. I'm ecstatic to grow alongside the ladies at SUGARMOON, who share the same passion for sweet things.

Assistant Manager

I'm an education enthusiast currently studying Business Administration at George Brown College, and formerly studied Psychology at Queen's University in Kingston. I enjoy socializing and meeting new people, and have been working in Customer Service in the salon and beauty industry for 6 years. In the short time I've worked at SUGARMOON I have advanced from my entitlement as Head of Customer Service to Assistant Manager and I am so excited to witness and be a part of all the upcoming changes. There is no greater feeling than watching a client leave the salon satisfied and feeling beautiful!
I like keeping busy and am constantly on the go, but in my spare time I enjoy reading books, watching movies, dancing and travelling. I've had the urge to travel since I was 12 years old and travelled to my hometown in Romania all by myself. I've already been to 17 countries and my dream is to visit every continent!

Hi I'm Madison! I've been a customer at SUGARMOON for three years and I love the idea of a natural hair removal system. I like that they always have new and innovative ideas. Every time I walk into SUGARMOON, all the staff look so positive and happy. I decided to use my love of talking to my advantage. This is why I’m so happy to have joined the SUGARMOON team.

I truly do love the opportunity to meet new people. I've spoken French since kindergarten so I feel like it gives me the chance to make connections with so many different people.

The positive atmosphere and welcoming energy makes me so happy to come to work everyday.

Meet Desrene Stewart. Her goal is to provide you with a friendly and personalized Aesthetic service experience, that will leave you relaxed and rejuvenated. Through her courteous and knowledgeable manner, her aim is to create a warm, confidential environment for all of your concerns and needs.

15 years in the business. One of the things Desrene enjoys the most is teaching people how to take care of their skin. Why? "Because it is what most represents you" healthy skin represent what you are, it is one of the most important organs of the body.

If you are taking care of your skin it is telling me that you are taking care of your body.

My name is Lisa, and I'm very excited to be part of the Sugarmoon team.

I am a Medical Esthetician with a passion for the services we provide. What attracted me to SUGARMOON is its holistic methods. I love making clients feel comfortable in a clean and safe environment. I believe in educating clients for maximum results and achieving a “clean slate". lol. When I'm not working I'm enjoying time with my family and friends.

I look forward to servicing you in the future.



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.



Welcome to my world. I am a certified Esthetician from Seneca College and have been with SUGARMOON since 2012. Sugaring is my passion and I am also an advocate for everything natural. Stumbling across SUGARMOON really was just by chance. I had no clue what sugaring was, as it wasn’t taught in school. Paola welcomed me with open arms and showed me the insides and outs of this ancient hair removal technique. This concept of sugaring has totally changed my life...and my hair. It will do the same for you. I look forward to meeting everybody and share my passion for sugaring, skincare and the esthetics world with you. During my spare time, I enjoy experimenting with ingredients in the kitchen and reading up on DIY projects. Running around and playing sports are also on my favourite things to do list. And on lazy days, I would just catch up on watching all the TV series on Netflix.

At first I was a client, now I am a receptionist, and I cannot wait to see where I'll be next with SUGARMOON. I am thrilled to have joined such a positive and creative work environment where I can greet and meet all the wonderful clients. Outside of SUGARMOON, I enjoy being in nature, traveling, and playing board games.
