We’ve found a new home!
As of September 2017, we will be up and running with our new full-service salon and mentorship program, just around the corner from Hairpins Salon in Courtenay. In addition we can’t wait to offer exciting new classes from top stylists and are already planning a big hair show to show off our shiny new facility located at 101-254 Simms St.
As many of you may know, since 2015, Staysea, Courtenay and I have been teaching and facilitating affordable, accessible advanced education in the Comox Valley in our fantastic Hairpins Salon. We’ve had the pleasure of connecting with stylists and salon owners from all over Vancouver Island. Our new place – FOUNDATION HAIR SALON – will continue to do this, and to help offer a great place to learn, we’re on the hunt for passionate stylists to hone their craft while developing on-the-job experience in a positive and nurturing environment. We will be directly involved with the new salon, with each of us managing, mentoring and educating stylists part time.
Our big goal has always been to open a full-curriculum new stylist training academy in Courtenay, BC. We’ve already completed a year-long personalized teacher training program with SR Education and have been actively navigating through the complexity of government licensing requirements for the school. It has been a massive undertaking and we are hoping to be ready to launch this phase of the business in the Fall of 2018... watch this space!
Staysea, Courtenay and I would like to thank our clients at Hairpins, who have all been so supportive of us! And don’t worry, we will keep our current hours there, because, well, we love doing your hair!
