1. Over 40 years of industry experience

Eveline Charles began her career over 40 years ago, continually growing her business and endeavors. In 2005, she opened her first EvelineCharles Academy in Edmonton because she wanted to offer a higher standard of beauty education than what was available.

  1. Modern and Clean Learning Environments

Our facilities are some of the largest Beauty schools in Canada; they echo our commitment to providing the most premiere beauty education in the industry. The student experience is enhanced by the Academy using the same equipment and products that we use in our salons. Preparing you for hands on learning on relevant, modern equipment and products sets you up for success in today’s beauty industry.

  1. Experienced, Energetic, and Encouraging Instructors

Not only are our programs tailored to what is needed in a future stylist or esthetician, we also offer first-rate instructors who have the most relevant and up to date experience to offer students.

  1. Flexible Learning Schedules

We know that your life away from school is important, that’s why we have schedules that suit you!  Choose a 3 day a week schedule that allows you earn while you learn, or a 5 day a week schedule that allows you finish school quickly and get you into the full time workforce faster.

  1. Frequent Start Dates

With so many dates available, choose when YOU would like to start on your path to success in the beauty industry.  

  1. The EvelineCharles Bursary and Funding

Here at EC Academy we are so dedicated to growing the beauty industry and its future leaders that we offer up to $5,300 in Bursaries for every student that qualifies. Plus, our Full Time Programs are licensed and accredited by the government and qualify for student loans.  

  1. Optional International Trip

Not many schools fly their students to an international location for a great and enriching learning experience, but we do.  Early in March we fly to New York City to attend the International Beauty Show; the longest running and largest trade show in North America.

  1. Business Principles

Going one step beyond learning theory and practical skills in the beauty industry, you learn everything from how to create, maintain and grow a loyal clientele to improving your salary potential through maximizing retail sales.

  1. Industry Partnerships with other Industry Leaders

With partners like ITEC, SharpLight, and the British Barbers Association we strive to give our students a leg up on industry insight and knowledge, ensuring that you are fully prepared with the right partnerships and tools in place on your first day on the job.
