Why You Should Train with nkd ( )

Why Choose Perron Rigot Waxes

Perron Rigot has set itself apart in the world of waxing as the leading expert for over 80 years. A French manufacturer founded in 1936, Perron Rigot is best known for the exceptional quality of its professional waxing products.

Guided by performance and innovation, Perron Rigot has patented over 20 depilatory waxes, and has created new wax segments such as the first low-temperature wax, the first hard wax and hard wax beads, bulk wax, and the first in hypo-allergenic waxes.

These days, Perron Rigot provides a range of high-quality waxes to meet all needs, including hypo-allergenic formulas, strip and non-strip waxes, scented and non-scented. These waxes can be applied at low temperatures, allowing for pain-free application and efficient hair removal.

nkd ( ) is the proud to be the flagship UK Salon Group for Perron Rigot waxes. It’s the only brand of wax that we would ever consider using in our commercial salons and we’re confident that once properly trained in it, you will feel the same.

Meet the trainers


As head of Treatments & Training in our busy commercial salons since 2018, Louise is also Chief Trainer at nkd ( ) the waxing and beauty school. In a previous life, Louise held Managerial and Training roles at Steiner, the world-leading cruise liner. Known for their exceedingly high professional standards, Louise has decades of global spa experience that she loves sharing with aspiring beauty therapists who want to learn!


Sarah has been our Senior Waxing & Beauty Therapist at nkd ( ) Leicester since 2017,
as well as a Waxing and Lash & Brow Trainer for nkd ( ) the waxing & beauty school.

She is the most heavily-requested and heavily-booked therapist in our salons
and what Sarah doesn’t know about
waxing – and how to keep your clients happy – isn’t worth knowing!


Macie has been one of nkd’s superstar therapists since 2021, and runs an incredibly full column in our busy Nottingham salon.

A keen waxer (of course!) Macie also has
a huge passion for brow treatments and loves sharing the knowledge, tips and
tricks she’s acquired with all of her salon clients with our training school students.


With a day job of Salon Manager at nkd Leicester and a lot of request clients for her on-point lash & brow treatments, Naomi is a lady in demand!

But still she finds the time to share her lash & brow knowledge and passion with our lash & brow training school students.

I used to dread my waxing but I feel very at ease at nkd. The staff are very calm and patient and immediately make you feel comfortable. I am really not good at all with pain, but the wax used at nkd is so quick and painless.

- H.K
Salon Client

After visiting several other salons and being left disappointed and in pain I decided to try NKD. My therapist delivered a very precise & professional intimate wax. Best wax I’ve ever had and I will never go anywhere else now. Thank you NKD x

- Tammy Scott
Salon Client

You are the waxing professionals – you get on with the job in an efficient, friendly and effective way. I have even been known to nearly fall asleep whilst my therapist has waxed my legs before – what greater accolade than that is there for a waxing team?

- Sarah Buck
Salon Client

I thought the trainer was very professional with in-depth knowledge of waxing, as well as care for clients. I thought it was very organised with a lot of theory as well as practical knowledge being taught. I chose nkd as based on what I’d seen online they seemed the most professional and I wanted to make sure my qualification was respected 

- Sadie Cubitt
Training School Graduate

It was so well organised, fun, friendly and informative. There is nothing that could of been done better. Louise was a phenomenal trainer. I was welcomed and made to feel so comfortable. As an anxious person I was made to feel at ease. Louise created an environment and culture that was supportive, kind and very considerate to all the different ranges of peoples experience or lack of in this field. The follow up once I had enquired was very efficient, friendly helpful and not pushy.

- Louise Veira
Training School Graduate

Sarah, thank you very much for your overall support during my waxing training. Your positivity and encouragement that I can wax has made me believe that I can do it. One of my goals for this year was to get myself onto a waxing course and be qualified. I’m pleased to say, I achieved this goal and I’m on the way to build my own business as a waxing and threading therapist
