Learn the Art of Body Sugaring!
Monika Campbell was trained in the art of body sugaring in 1996 by Francine Doyle of Kitchener through Alexandria Body Sugaring. Monika is now certified to teach through, is affiliated with, and is the distributor in Ontario and Eastern Canada for 'Sugar of the Nile', a Manitoba based body sugaring paste manufacturer. The consistent quality of 'Sugar of the Nile' paste and other treatment products, as well as the incredible customer service from Lynn Ingram and Emily Cesario Essay and their team, solidified Monika's commitment to this company. Lux Premier Beauty trainers are Certified Body Sugaring Specialists.

1) Each student, must grow their hair for the other students to be able to remove it. If a student has been shaving, three (3) weeks growth is ideal for removal of hair, especially when training. While, when coming to see a Professional Body Sugaring Practitioner, the hair can be removed at a much shorter length than with other hair removal methods, best results will be
achieved after not shaving, for three (3) weeks (in training you'll learn why!) If students have been sugaring or waxing or using other methods of hair removal, please contact Lux Premier Beauty in advance for instruction.
*Lux Trainers prefer that each student have hair removed from all parts of their body, (full leg, bikini, arms, underarms, brow, lip, chin, cheeks) so students can give feedback to each other, and have a basis for what to tell their clients. If for some reason students are not comfortable having hair removed from a certain body part,(ie: cheeks or brows or arms - not all body parts) they will need to let their trainer know when inquiring, as a model will be needed for the other students to train on. Students will be responsible for finding their own model for that body part. Students will be expected to practice on themselves after training to perfect technique.
2) Since students will be ready to walk out the door and begin sugaring after the second day of training, volunteers/practice models should be lined up and ready to have their hair removed as soon as possible. This is easier done in the cooler months, than when it's nice out. Practice is the key to becoming successful, and if students don't have models to practice on, technique will be harder to maintain.
