Anna Long-Stokes

Hi! My name is Anna Long-Stokes and I’m the lead trainer and founder of Portland Sugar Training. When I graduated beauty school back in 2009, I had no idea what sugaring was, but I knew one thing- I HATED waxing. So I simply didn’t “do” hair removal.

A few years later I met Stephanie King (international sugaring trainer) through a networking event and she mentored me in sugaring and training others to sugar.

I FELL IN LOVE with this ancient + effective hair removal technique and went on to create The Portland Girl (Portland Oregon’s premier skincare and sugaring studio).

I’ve had the pleasure of training oodles of women (and 1 man too!) and I love watching beginners move through the challenges and achievements that make sugaring so dang addictive!

Training Superpower: intuitive and goofy! She has a knack for helping individuals make minor tweaks to their technique that result in them improving leaps and bounds in a short period of time.
