FAQsYou have questions and we have answers.
Why is Alexandria Professional’s fundamental certification course called Advanced Body Sugaring?
Although you will be learning all the basics of professional sugaring, and you will then have access to our Master Classes, Alexandria Professional® set the standard in sugaring hair removal methodology and it is recognized worldwide as an “advanced’ technique”. Whether you are seasoned or a novice to the AP sugaring, your technique is considered an advanced method.
How long does the Alexandria Professional® Certification Course last?
Our Advanced Body Sugaring Certification Course is a self-paced training. We encourage you to take your certification assessment within 45 days of training. However, you are allowed to take up to SIX months to complete and feel comfortable with your knowledge and base technique.
How much does the Alexandria Professional® Certification Course cost?
Our Advanced Body Sugaring Certification Course fee is $2,500 which will include your certification assessment.
I am a student enrolled in a Beauty School. Can I still get certified?
Yes! With proof of enrollment at a beauty school, you may sign up for our courses.
My salon/spa already carries and uses Alexandria Professional® products and treatments. Do you offer reduced education course rates?
Yes! If your salon or spa is an active account with AP, we offer a reduced course fee for each additional student coming from that salon/spa for our Body Sugaring Certification Course. Please contact us to find out more.
Is a kit required to take a Certification Course?
Yes! All course participants are required to purchase a minimum Starter Kit, with the following two exceptions. Students registered in a beauty school can purchase the minimum of a Practice Kit. Salons/spas having more than one-course participants may purchase a minimum Starter Kit plus one Practice Kit for each course participant.
Do I need to be certified with Alexandria Professional® in order to purchase your products?
No, you do not need to be certified by Alexandria Professional® in order to purchase our products. Click here to register for your AP online account and to upload a copy of your current license and other company’s sugaring certification.
Do I need to be a licensed beauty professional to perform sugaring treatments?
Although some companies may tell you that you do not need to be licensed to sugar, in the US and many other countries, you must hold a valid cosmetology/aesthetics license to perform any type of hair removal. Check with your state to see if they offer a shorter-term license specific to waxing hair removal which will then qualify you to perform professional sugaring treatments as well.
In some states, you may find that the State Board of Cosmetology allows a person to offer beauty treatments (including sugaring) if it is not listed in their roster of licensing regulations.
If you’re an unlicensed professional, it is your responsibility to check with your state board of cosmetology for all licensing regulations.
Does Alexandria Professional® offer ongoing education?
Yes, we do! Click here for our list of Master Courses.
Is Alexandria Professional® insured?
Good question! You should always ask all of your suppliers of professional products this very question.
Alexandria Professional® is insured as a professional manufacturer of beauty and wellness products and follows GMP rules and regulations.
Once I am registered, what type of support is available to me to help me complete my certification?
We are with you every step of the way to ensure you get the most out of this program and you are ready to start practicing. To this end, we have Ongoing Virtual Face to Face Support available to you with an AP certified educator.
Is there a specific time in which I am required to complete each course?
We are here to work with everyone’s schedule and offer maximum flexibility. We offer you up to SIX months to complete your Body Sugaring Certification Course.
If I run out of products prior to completing my course, can I order new products?
Yes, you can. Practice is important to set you up for success with the AP treatments in your salon.
Do you offer salon discounts?
Yes! Please contact us for further details.
What happens if I don’t pass the Kennedy Theory® Course?
Each theory quiz is designed as a learning tool and you can take each quiz as many times as you need to learn and pass. The goal is to help you with information retention!
What happens if I don’t pass the practical exam with my educator?
Much like the theory, we are here to support you at each stage and help you graduate and begin to practice. In this process, you have access to:
- A dedicated educator who is available for Virtual Face to Face Support.
- Technique reviews via email: you receive feedback on your videos.
