Sugar Me | Northeast 503.287.4901 | Southeast 503.231.3736

Kate Sprouse, owner + sugarista

What is your favorite part of what you do? Seeing clients, no question! We’ve grown so much, at this point I should be focusing solely on running the business, but I just can’t give up my time in the treatment room as a sugarista. I love meeting new clients; making them feel comfortable, teaching them about the sugaring process, and really getting to know them over time. It is so rewarding to be able to provide an all-natural, more effective alternative to traditional waxing. Sugaring tends to leave people in awe of its sweet results.  

What are you most proud of? I am so proud of the women that I work with!  I’ve hand picked each employee and worked really hard to put this team of amazing women together. Everyone is so kind, down to earth, and very talented at what they do. No matter who you see when you come in for a service, you’ll leave feeling like you’ve made a friend. That means so much to me as a business owner in the beauty industry. We take pride in providing a service worth returning to and telling friends about  

What’s next for Sugar Me — and for you? I’m so excited that we just opened our second location on SE Division Street! We’re really looking forward to being in a location more accessible for people that may not have been able to reach us at our NE studio. Now being in a new part of town, giving back to the community is high on my priority list, especially Portland Public Schools. Being a proud mother of twin toddlers, I work hard in my home, my business, and in my community to make this city a place where my children can grow and thrive. I currently work with schools in the Beaumont-Irvington area, close to our NE Fremont location, and am looking forward to engaging in the SE community as well. I feel very fortunate to be a female business owner where I can take my passion of natural hair removal and contribute to Portland’s growing culture.
