Hairdressing and Esthetics Courses available in Courtenay, BC.


Del Rio Academy of Hair & Esthetics offers professional Hairdressing and Esthetics courses located in a Paul Mitchell concept Salon in the Comox Valley.

Del Rio Academy students are trained by experienced, qualified instructors. The Academy offers courses in Hairdressing, Esthetics,  and Nail Technology. General upgrading courses for Esthetics and Hairdressing are also available.

At Del Rio Academy we believe that to fully prepare graduates for their careers, students need to train in a physical environment that reflects where they will be working. For that reason Del Rio Academy features actual Salon and Spa service areas where students can apply their practical knowledge on clients, while developing their customer service skills. The school salon and spa areas are supervised by qualified instructors, and are structured to ensure that classroom learning is complimented with this practical experience on clients. By simulating a realistic salon environment, we can further enhance the training the student receives and better prepare each graduate for success in his or her career.
