A spoonful of sugar

Two East Midlands women who met at a mother and baby club are set to not only take the pain out of hair removal but also to introduce local people to a more flexible way of working.

Jessica McGowan from Ruddington and Jenny Roe who recently moved to East Leake have both started their own award winning Evanji Sugaring business and are encouraging people to join them if not in the business then for a less painful form of hair removal.

For many women and some men hair removal is an arduous and often painful task, especially at this time of year when everybody is trying to get their bodies’ beach ready, but if Jessica and Jenny have their way this won’t be the case for much longer.

The mothers who met a couple of years ago at Nappuccino’s mums club, Ruddington, like many women often discussed the difficulties of balancing motherhood with work and improve work-life balance when Jessica struck upon the idea that Evanji, which is owned by Jessica’s sister-in-law, Denise,  could be the key.

Jessica said: “I work part-time as a financial adviser and wanted to do something that could bring in an income, be more hands on and that I could fit around my other work and my daughter.  Denise has been running Evanji for the past 12 years so I was already a sugaring convert but I decided to take the next step and get involved.  I started training as an Evanji Practicioner last year with four days training and haven’t looked back since. “

“Recently Jenny came on-board, helping expand the business to the wider East Midlands which we are really please about. Both Jenny and I have small children and the flexibility that this offered is great, we can both work from home, when we want and fit it in around our other commitments.  So many people today have hectic lives and this model of working helps to readdress the work life balance.  I also like the fact that we are working with products that are natural”

Sugaring is an ancient Arabic form of hair removal and is very gentle on the skin. This is because the sugar paste will not stick to anything moist, and, therefore, will not stick to live skin cells, which makes it much less traumatic on the skin, and much less painful than waxing. It also means it is particularly good for facial skin, and older skin
