Being half Portuguese, and feeling as though she had more hair to get rid of than most, Sarah started experimenting with waxing at the age of 15. When she was 17 she attended college with the goal of becoming a Psychologist. After a short stint there, Sarah decided at that age she wasn’t ready to dedicate so many years to pursuing that particular dream. She took a few years off, then in 2004 took the Blanche Macdonald’s Esthetics program. Sarah couldn’t believe that she could rid the world of their hair, one wax strip at a time. Sarah graduated from Blanche Macdonald in 2005, spending the next few years working for herself with her own mobile waxing business. After missing the company of fellow employees, she came to meet Jane and a the two started their journey as the best-waxing-duo to hits these parts.
Even after all these years, Sarah continues to offer the perfect balance of professionalism, humor, and experience making waxing an easy and non-intimidating services - no matter the client.
LEADING LADY OF WAXING
In June of 2006, this Leading Lady of Waxing opened a smallish boutique in Yaletown. In the 13 years since, this Founding-Mother of waxing in Vancouver has received numerous awards and high fives for establishing a stronghold in the hip downtown neighborhood, establishing a bench mark in aesthetician services in our city and providing incredible customer service. Jane, the waxing maven, became an aesthetician in 1999 in Ontario, where she spent a few years and was trained in Brazilian waxing. Upon moving back to Vancouver, she started a career with Spa Utopia and introduced them to the waxing style she couldn’t live without. In 2005 she left Spa Utopia and pursued medical aesthetics with Yaletown Laser Centre, where she expanded her knowledge in skin resurfacing and laser hair removal (which comes in handy if you have any ingrown hair, scarring or skin concerns). Sugarbox, the Yaletown stronghold has grown organically over the years with a faithful clientele. This year she and her long time colleague launched SARAH & JANE OFF MAIN. A new neighborhood, a fresh look, and the same high demand. Jane is never to busy to say hello!
