Sunshine & Bliss Sugar Spa

Shelby Marchand is exactly the personality you’d expect behind this business’s name – bubbly, smiley and sweet! This young mother of three girls, 5 and under, has opened her very first bricks and mortar business, on Erie St. 

Lemon, water and sugar are blended together to create the paste required for body sugaring, a means to eliminate body hair. Simultaneous with the hair removal, the sugaring exfoliates, removing dead skin cells to make the skin smoother.

Shelby first launched her business during pandemic times – conducting home visits for new moms who couldn’t leave the house without their newborns and/or toddlers. Shelby wanted to offer a service that made these women feel good. “I named my business Sunshine & Bliss; I thought about what makes me happy and it’s the sun – whether it’s rising or setting and definitely the feeling of being on a sunny beach!” As a young adult, Shelby struggled with self-confidence due to unwanted hair and when she tried this product she couldn’t believe the amazing results. Her goal is to make people feel good about themselves, the same way the treatment made her feel back then.

Shelby lives in Thorndale with her children and husband, Muay Thai Champion, Joe Marchand (owner of 5th Round gym) but these entrepreneurs hope to one day move their tribe to Stratford!

Open Monday to Friday, 9AM-4PM; Saturday, 9AM-Noon; Appointment Only.
