Making the Switch: Why Sugar Hair Removal is the Obvious Choice in Semi-Permanent Hair Removal Techniques
by Jarratt Haviland

International Sugaring Educator, Entrepreneur, and Hair Removal Enthusiast Jarratt Haviland will address the big question “Why Sugaring?” in an interactive, brand-neutral master class. From bosses and industry professionals to our very own clientele, everyone wants to know why sugaring is the best form of semi-permanent hair removal on the market and how it’s different from traditional waxing. Don’t miss this class and the opportunity to equip yourself with a plethora of reasons (and resources!) to offer sugaring in your salon or spa! Live demo included.

Jarratt Haviland began her journey in cosmetology and esthetics after a stint in the world of nutrition research left her unfulfilled and longing for something different. A generous friend gave her the opportunity to just “get away” and reception at her salon while looking for another avenue of science, where she accidentally fell in love with the industry and never looked back. Her career began in cosmetology, offering hair services and waxing, but one experience with a sugarist in a neighboring salon had her begging to learn the technique. Since that fateful sugaring appointment, Jarratt completely shifted her focus to esthetics—sugaring and airbrush tanning—and took the massive risk opening her own salon, Sugar & Bronze, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in early 2015.

After almost a decade in the industry and growing her own salon to over 6000 clients, Jarratt shifted her focus once again to educating the community on the benefits of sugar hair removal and developing other esthetics professionals in the industry. She began educating in 2015 and has been enjoying her new position as the Director of Education with Ke Ko since May 2020. Educating with the Ke Ko Ohana has allowed her to travel the world and experience new cultures and challenges while sharing something she loves. Her best advice? Go for it. Risks are scary, but on the other side comes either incredible success or invaluable lessons learned. And either experience will give you new tools to tackle the next great thing coming your way.

Making the Switch: Why Sugar Hair Removal is the Obvious Choice in Semi-Permanent Hair Removal Techniques
by Jarratt Haviland

International Sugaring Educator, Entrepreneur, and Hair Removal Enthusiast Jarratt Haviland will address the big question “Why Sugaring?” in an interactive, brand-neutral master class. From bosses and industry professionals to our very own clientele, everyone wants to know why sugaring is the best form of semi-permanent hair removal on the market and how it’s different from traditional waxing. Don’t miss this class and the opportunity to equip yourself with a plethora of reasons (and resources!) to offer sugaring in your salon or spa! Live demo included.

Jarratt Haviland began her journey in cosmetology and esthetics after a stint in the world of nutrition research left her unfulfilled and longing for something different. A generous friend gave her the opportunity to just “get away” and reception at her salon while looking for another avenue of science, where she accidentally fell in love with the industry and never looked back. Her career began in cosmetology, offering hair services and waxing, but one experience with a sugarist in a neighboring salon had her begging to learn the technique. Since that fateful sugaring appointment, Jarratt completely shifted her focus to esthetics—sugaring and airbrush tanning—and took the massive risk opening her own salon, Sugar & Bronze, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in early 2015.

After almost a decade in the industry and growing her own salon to over 6000 clients, Jarratt shifted her focus once again to educating the community on the benefits of sugar hair removal and developing other esthetics professionals in the industry. She began educating in 2015 and has been enjoying her new position as the Director of Education with Ke Ko since May 2020. Educating with the Ke Ko Ohana has allowed her to travel the world and experience new cultures and challenges while sharing something she loves. Her best advice? Go for it. Risks are scary, but on the other side comes either incredible success or invaluable lessons learned. And either experience will give you new tools to tackle the next great thing coming your way.
