NEWS RELEASE -- On Nov. 18, Vancouver Community College unveiled a whole new look for the VCC Salon & Spa after a $1.7 million renovation.

The VCC Salon & Spa is where students get hands-on training in the college’s full-time hair design and esthetics programs. It’s also a place where the public can get great deals on high-quality services.

Graham Webber, Dean, School of Music, Dance and Design, says, “After two years of planning, we have a remarkably beautiful salon and spa training facility that finally matches the quality of instruction and services provided. We’ve never felt more excited for our current and future students, as well as our valued clients.”

•Walk-in spray tanning booth
•Separate training area for students
•Boutique storefront featuring top-quality product lines from L’Oreal Professionel, Dermalogica, Eminence and St. Tropez

The facility will also generate revenue for the college. As the VCC Salon & Spa Business Development Manager, Geeta Charch will be responsible for leading and implementing the retail business strategy for the facility. Charach has managed several salons, most recently serving as a director at The Holt Renfrew Salon and Spa.

“We have partnered with leading brands like L’Oreal Professionel, Dermalogica, St. Tropez and Eminence so clients can experience these high-end products in state-of-the-art facilities that will soon become one of Vancouver’s top destinations for salon and spa services. This is what any salon and spa manager dreams of!”

In addition to renovating the physical space, the VCC Salon & Spa has also revamped its recycling program. It is now a member of the Green Circle Salon program and will be diverting 95 per cent of all waste from the landfill. This also makes the VCC Salon & Spa the largest Green Circle Salon in Canada.

All this and haircuts are only $11.
