Hi all,
Have any of you heard of Noiren K Carrigg? Or have any of you trained with her? Apparently she is a big name in the industry and can do a full leg and bikini wax in 8 mins...

Would love to hear from anyone who knows anything about her courses as there's one this weekend and I'm intrigued!
Thanks x

Haven't heard of her but I was intrigued so I googled. Full leg and bikini in 8 minutes! Really? Wow!

According to her website
"Carrigg Brady - Home of The Hollywood
Carrigg Brady Beauty were the first company to offer training in the much sought after art of specialised waxing."


It sounds impressive but I have seen just how much people can "big themselves up" in this industry with very little substance to their claims.

Personally, I would ask her how long she has been waxing and what professional qualifications she holds.

If you are satisfied then get booking (and let us know how it went).

That's a good idea Elliebee, I think I'll send a quick email and find out a bit more about it all. I've never heard of her and nothing came up in the search. As you say it's easy for people to big themselves up on paper!

I agree entirely. Ask to see her certificates, not only teaching but when she actually qualified herself. There are a lot of people going into education at the moment without mastering the skills themselves.:wink2:

8mins? Really - I'm scheduling my ladies having brazilians / hollywoods in for an hours slot. They won't take an hour to do, but I'm still building up my speed and I *hate* rushed appointments as client and therapist.

8 mins for a half leg is easy if they have very sparse hair but in the REAL world…………people that come for waxing have hair. Do you notice in how a lot of DVD's on waxing the clients are hairless? Makes me laugh! You get a client in with PCO who continually shaves and it could take you ages.

Always allow 15mins for half legs, including knees and feet as you don't want to be waxing against the clock and I like to chat to my clients and make them feel welcome.

I haven't heard of her?

I would be worried incase she is making this all up and she done a bikini and leg wax in 8 minutes once when she had a tiny, hardly hairy client! If that's even possible?

Email her an ask her and try and find some reviews of her courses. :)

Haha thanks for the replies guys, I'm not booking on her course as I'm saving for the wax queen ;) but I was intrigued about this one as it included bikini line colouring and vajazzeling and things like that.
Anyway I've emailed the salon that is hosting the training day so I'll let you all know the reply. One of our Irish geeks trained with her years ago and says its strip wax that she uses for everything, but that's all I've found out so far. :)

Her site did make some impressive claims and the training seemed reasonably priced.

If she is as good as she claims, then the training seems like great value.

I've just had a message from the lady organising the next date of this course, it's pretty much all strip wax that she uses.
Just waiting to hear if the course is accredited and if so, who by.

Can I just point out, the fact that a course is accredited IS NOT an automatic guarantee of quality.

There are so many other things to consider too.

Oh, I know, just trying to get as much information as possible, so...
The lady in question has been teaching for 25 years. She has developed her own techniques and brand of wax, called Waxology which is apparently designed with intimate areas in mind. It is a strip wax.

When I was questioning the lady organising the course I mentioned that i wanted to train with Kim Lawless and the lady asked me who Kim was as she'd never heard of her. She had also never heard of Lori Nestore, Perron Rigot or Berins/Berodin wax :confused:

Apparently Noireen trains all over the world, has no one else heard of her??

Seems strange then that in a professional beauty forum such as this, NO-ONE has heard of her......... (or am I just a cynical old bag)? :eek: Please don't anyone answer that! LOL

Hi Guys,
just thought I would let you know re the speed/bikini training with Noiren Carrigg.I saw her waxing in Cork and she picked my friend Carol who had a full leg and bikini n 8 minutes(there was a lady with a timer).
She used a metal spatula and was phenomenal.great with the client no rushing I did her course in July and it was fantastic you can really learn a lot from Noiren.I learned a lot of tips and my waxing is so different now.
If you are thinking of doing the course go for it well w:biggrin:orth the money.
