Amala wax and sugar studio is owned and operated by Angela Manning. She got into waxing when she was a Veterinarian Assistant and was tired of living paycheck to paycheck. She always enjoyed getting waxed and being hair free, but never really thought about how one learns and starts waxing people as a living. She asked her Esthetician how one learns to wax and nine months later she graduated from Greenwood Hair Academy and started working at Wax On.
Still not sure this was her career she went back to school for Nursing. When tired of being wait listed for schools and realizing nursing wasn’t for her she decided to get her Bachelors in Exercise Science and Nutrition from Bastyr University. After graduating she moved to Costa Rica for 4 months deciding what to do next and that is when Amala Studio came to fruition.
Angela’s first studio was located in Bothell, WA, but a little after 2 years there was a massive fire that destroyed the building she was leasing. It took a year and a half to recover and find her new location in Mountlake Terrace. She hopes to stay for a long while. When not working Angela enjoys being outside with her 2 dogs and partner. She loves hiking, crossfit, yoga, reading, knitting and traveling.
