Tamara, Founder

With a strong love for all things skincare, Tamara always had the desire to formulate her own cosmetics with natural organic ingredients.  But it wasn't until her first professional facial she decided to enter the industry herself in 2002.  Tamara opened her own Skin Care Spa in 2003 and shortly thereafter introduced body sugaring hair removal to her clients.   She continued her education through the International Dermal Institute and also became a WA Licensed Instructor.   With her desire to someday teach and her love of sugaring, Tamara's Sugarâ„¢ was created.  A hands-on training class, 100% natural, professional hair removal sugar paste, and a full line of natural treatment products. 

Andrea, Operations Administrator 

Andrea has been with Tamara's Sugar since 2017 and is in charge of all aspects of operations. We appreciate all that she does and so do our customers and educators.  She is the first to answer the phone when you call in and if not, then she is ordering inventory, helping with packing orders, class kits, or making our Tamanu & Argan Balms.  

Kyle, U.S. Education Coordinator

We are happy to have Kyle Alexander join our team as the U.S. Education Coordinator.   After years of getting waxed and performing waxing, she tried sugaring and became a total convert.  Kyle trained and worked with Stephanie King, Portland's longtime beloved sugar trainer, and Sugarista.  She stays busy sharing her time between her sugaring studio and working with our team of U.S. Educators.  She loves hiking with her husband and her three fabulous Boston Terriers
