We had the good fortune of connecting with Haylie Sigler and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Haylie, what do you want your legacy to be?
Never would think that dropping out of community college would lead me to where im at today. I applied to Paul Mitchell where i began my 8 month program of what would be the best days of my life. They taught me so many of the things i know now. I took an after school program in a class called “sugaring”, a form of hair removal. Never did i know that would be my career path. Right out of Esthetician school I went straight into a job of sugaring. I spent a whole year there and learned alot of what i know today. Fast forward to November 2020 I felt it was time to start my own path. I opened my own business, Hay Suga out of the salon C’e La Luna. I wanted my business to symbolize the beauty of women. I wanted women to walk out of their appointment unstoppable.

I’ve always wanted a job that would help people some way in their life, never did I know it would be in the industry of helping people with their skin. A lot of people who dont have problematic skin do not realize how much of an impact it has on peoples everyday life. Something as simple as going outside or looking at themselves in the mirror could cause so much threat on their lives. When I started my career as an Esthetician & my own business I knew I wanted to make a change. Since starting my own business, Hay Suga, I want people to remember me as a safe place for women to feel themselves and know that they are as beautiful as they think they are. Because people are able to trust me with something so precious on their body, their skin, they feel like they can trust me with the world. I want my business to feel like a safe place for women. To be themselves and feel like they’re the most beautiful person in the room.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I can honestly say im very proud of how far ive come. Its a scary world opening up your own business, as were scared of failure. Every step i got closer to the big day of taking my own personal client, just seemed to get more and more scarier. So no, it was most definitely not easy. I had to realize that there is always going to be someone talking down on me or someone who does something different/better than me, but it takes a great business owner to over look that. I want the world to know that you can always achieve something if you put your mind to it and work hard. Yes there will be times that you fail, but there will also be times of success. Being a business owner i feel like i still learn new things every day. New things always come up, things change, but if i keep my mind focused i can tackle anything. What sets me aside of everyone else is what i do for my career is something i TRULY love. When im able to show passion for my work it helps with the trust of my clients, and thats everything i want.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I grew up in a small town, San Pedro,

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Alot of why my business is the way it is and where im at in life is because of all my clients. Every single person who has supported me in some way, whether is was sharing my name, staying to help me build something at the salon, coming in for my services… the list is endless. A tremendous shoutout to Kim and Anthony at C’e La Luna salon for taking me under their wing when I had no idea what I was doing in the business industry
