Introducing Angela, a beauty enthusiast whose journey into the world of skincare began with a personal struggle with acne in her teens and later in her late twenties. Armed with her California Esthetician license in 2004, Angela initially focused on facials within the bustling spas of Los Angeles, driven by her own experiences and passion for skincare. However, fate had other plans for Angela. A serendipitous interview at a renowned waxing spa shifted her focus. What she thought would be an opportunity in facials turned out to be her inaugural dive into the captivating realm of hair removal . Driven by her personal journey and passion, Angela's expertise in waxing swiftly flourished. For  dedicated years, she catered to the grooming needs of Hollywood's elite before embarking on a transformative vacation to Maui. Enchanted by the island's allure, Angela swiftly fell in love and, within a mere 34 days, decided to embrace the laid-back lifestyle of the tropics.


Aloha! I'm Marisa, born in Maui and raised in Lahaina. Mom of 4 wonderful keiki and married my local Lahaina boy. Being one of the top destinations for many visitors and from a very strong, close-knit community, Lahaina is a special place to so many. August 8th forever changed the physical part of it, but the heart remains the same. From that night, I felt the love and hope from family and friends near and far, to keep moving forward. Living Lahaina by Marisa came to be. My mission is always to make you feel welcome, relaxed, and refreshed, and leave in a better state of mind, whatever service you choose. I've been a licensed esthetician for 8 years and a nail technician for over 18 years. I have worked for formerly Spa Moana at the Hyatt, Spa Helani at Westin KOR, and Serenity Spa. I am so honored to be joining the wonderful Maui Beauty Collab, with Angela with Sugar Mamma, Brittney with Paradise Lashes and Brows, and Gabby with Lash and wax by Gab. E Komo Mai and join us for a fabulous array of treatments from the best providers Lahaina has to offer.

From West Maui, February 2023:
For the Love of Sugar(ing): Angela Talamantez

Angela Talamantez is passionate about sugar. Not the kind you eat, but the kind that works wonders on your skin! Sugaring hair removal has a rich history spanning nearly 4,000 years. This natural hair removal method involves applying a paste made from sugar, lemon, and water to the skin to gently remove hair. Renowned for its gentle touch compared to traditional waxing, sugaring has become Angela's specialty.

Honored, thrilled, humbled…all of the emotions!!! 

So happy to announce that Sugar Mamma Studio has been awarded the “Best Hair Removal” and “Best Esthetician” recognition for the Best of Maui 2023💖

This wouldn’t have been possible without all of the support & love from my amazing clients!
