Leslie Kavanagh is an entrepreneur at
heart. Following in her dad’s footsteps,
Leslie ventured into business in the field of
personal care with extraordinary results… certainly not what she expected when she
graduated with a biology degree 20+ years ago. Although she dedicated her studies
to a field she felt would provide her with a steady job, biology wasn’t as appealing as
cosmetology… so Leslie retrained.
In 2011, she learned about sugaring, an ancient Egyptian hair removal technique that is kinder to the body than waxing. And in 2013, Leslie seized the opportunity to bring sugaring to the Augusta area. Fast forward to 2019 when Leslie opened Sugar and Comb, a hair salon and sugaring studio consisting of two stylists and two hair removal specialists. Sugaring is a unique technique—there are no strips, no burning, no bacteria and less pain than traditional waxing. Sugaring is suitable for people with even the most sensitive skin. Recently, Leslie became certified as a Sugaring Educator and can now share her expertise by training and certifying other cosmetologists locally. Sugar and Comb truly takes personal care to a different level!
