Lina Kennedy selected for her outstanding leadership and commitment within her profession

I am pleased to recognize Lina with this important honor. Her perseverance, work ethic and leadership qualities are an inspiration to all women.

The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Lina Kennedy as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in esthetics. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 850,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.

“I am pleased to recognize Lina with this important honor” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her perseverance, work ethic and leadership qualities are an inspiration to all women.”

Lina Kennedy, President of Alexandria Professional, was recuperating from a serious car accident when she saw a product demonstration on TV that would change her life. The product was Alexandria’s Sugaring, a hair removal technique that can be traced back to ancient times. Painless and more effective than waxing, Alexandria’s Sugaring inspired Ms. Kennedy to find a way to make the product available to the countless number of customers who were looking for a product that would remove unwanted hair effectively without the discomfort and mess of traditional waxing.

Before long, Ms. Kennedy would acquire the exclusive international rights to the brand. In 1996, she purchased the manufacturing rights to Alexandria Body Sugaring for professional services and salon retail sales and the fledgling company became an enormous success.

Besides its exceptional ability to remove unwanted hair effectively and painlessly and without the mess associated with traditional waxing, the product contains no chemical additives and no wax resins. Because it contains no harmful ingredients, Ms. Kennedy says it is also “deliciously edible.”

Ms. Kennedy has succeeded in making Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring available in 34 countries and counting. She was a top ten finalist for PBA’s national Beauty Pitch and has been nominated for a number of awards including, most recently, the Niagara Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2015, in the International Trade category.
