Meet Lea Ingram of Bare Box Sugaring in Glendale

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lea Ingram.

Lea, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
It all started in esthetician school, my instructor introduced us to sugaring and I had never heard of it! It’s was so fascinating!! I instantly fell in love with the whole procedure! Once I graduated and got my licenses I knew I wanted to be in the Sugaring world so I began my hunt for my first sugaring job! There wasn’t many places to be honest, but then I found this amazing salon (leaving names out) and I clicked with the managers and owners right away and was hired on the spot! They then trained me and I found my own techniques that made me stand out from the other technicians and it was beneficial for me my client list started to grow. I learned that my job is more than hair removal I enjoy making my clients happy and I love the work I do. A year ima half later, I was ready to open my own sugaring studio and with the help from my husband, I made my dreams come true and opened bare box sugaring in July 2019!! This has been the best decision of my life I love what I do and it shows in my work. I’m no longer restricted to the slot based on bringing in the most business per day now I create the times and I’m really able to cater to each client and their specific needs to help them achieve their best skin. And that’s all I really want is for everyone to be comfortable in their own skin.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Honestly, it has. I feel I was so nervous approaching this decision that I was prepared for the absolute worst and it’s just kinda been a smooth ride and I’m so great full for that. It’s true what they say when you truly love what you do, your work will speak volumes.

Bare Box Sugaring – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Bare box sugaring is a sugaring hair removal studio. I specialize in Brazilians. I strive to make my clients feel comfortable this is a very personal service and it’s so important that your clients are extremely comfortable. I know I keep saying that but I can’t stress it enough it changes the whole experience when you can truly relax. I feel that sets me apart from a lot of other hair removal salons (I’ve heard some horror stories) I try to keep a good conversation going and it can be about anything but my goal is to make you as hairless as I possibly can while having experienced the least amount of pain as possible.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
For me, I’d have to say success is finding and living my true purpose. It’s having peace of mind that I’m truly doing my best and that I’m being the best role model for my son. Being happy and Achieving my desired visions and planned goals.
