About Us

We are an educational hair salon.

Our principal emphasis is to offer the students of Niagara College's Hairstyling and Hairstylist Apprenticeship programs the opportunity to work with clients in a safe environment while developing their skills and techniques. Our Hair Salon is located at Niagara College's Welland Campus in the Pavilion Building.

We are glad that you have chosen to support our program for your hairstyling needs. We strive to provide you with the best quality service but we ask that you remember that we are students trying to perfect our craft.

As we are an educational salon, we cannot always guarantee that your service will have the same quality as an established salon. We hope that you take this into consideration when booking your appointment with us.

We look forward to serving you!
