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. Ultimately, 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 the sugaring technique to the Augusta area. After great success,
Leslie opened her own studio in 2019—Sugar & Comb.
Sugar & Comb is a sugaring studio and hair salon. Sugaring is a unique technique for hair removal; there are no strips, no burning, no bacteria and less pain than traditional waxing. The sugaring hair removal process is suitable for people with even the most sensitive skin. As a certified Sugaring Educator, Leslie can now share her expertise by training and certifying other cosmetologists locally. Sugar & Comb truly takes personal care to a sweeter level!
