Who We Are

We first opened our doors in 1989, when founder and entrepreneur Inge Patton created a facility with a vision of providing the highest quality of education to the Esthetic and Beauty Industry in Canada.

Drawing on the high standards of European Beauty Regulations Inge developed in Germany, Inge’s vision was realized soon after her arrival in Canada. This vision ultimately resulted in us becoming one of only five schools in Canada to currently hold the prestigious CIDESCO certification, the world standard for beauty and spa therapy education.

We are still a family owned and operated company, excited to welcome you for our wide selection of full diploma programs and individual esthetic courses. Our promise to you is to provide you with the support and education you need to excel in your new career.
