I am a certified body sugaring specialist and instructor/educator, with over 30 years experience. Being of Middle-Eastern background, sugaring is nothing new to me. My mother would make it herself at home, as her mother did before. I was introduced to it when I was 13 years old and more than 30 years later, I am still using it. Sugaring has been the number one hair removal method in my family for generations. It is the only method I use for myself, and because of its natural benefits, it's the only one I would recommend for my daughters.
I first opened Queen of the Nile in 2006, and began my journey in the back of a lovely hair salon called Hotheads Haircutters in beautiful Wortley Village, behind curtains! Then, as the old saying goes, "life happens" -a relationship, children, a second job, etc. Although I couldn't give the business I knew and loved my full and undivided attention, my heart told me one day I would come back to it. Years later, after a difficult break-up, I decided to go back to school and educate myself in business. A short time after college, I went back to that charming salon in Wortley Village. From behind those same curtains and with the encouragement and support of the kindest, most generous and caring salon owner and human beings, Azizi, I was able to grow a clientele of 40 to 400 in a matter of 1 short year! Today, I am proud to acknowledge that after all of the struggles, challenges and tribulations Queen of the Nile has been through, 'she' has certainly earned her position and reputation in our great community and I have you, my clients, to thank.
