I Realized My Dream
“My name is Natalie and I am a proud graduate of the professional hair styling program. Since graduation I have returned to Versailles Academy many times to judge their Cut and Colour competition and also speak to their senior classes about job interviews skills, how to stay motivated in the industry and where this career could lead them. I had a dream of becoming a salon owner for 12 years and I finally realized my dream 5 years ago. I am the proud owner of The Hair Salon located at 1012 Wellington street west.”

The Perfect Place
“Versailles Academy was the perfect place for us to start our careers. We are proud graduates of the 2004 and 2008 Hair and Make-Up programs. Versailles gave us a great technical base as well as showing us the importance of professionalism and quality, which we now carry through to our own business. We opened a salon together (along with Partner Karolyn Prum) in December 2014 at the newly renovated Lansdowne Park and have been successfully operating since. We have also been lucky enough to have participated in numerous courses in various countries since graduating and truly believe continuous education is the key to success.”
- Lisa Naccarato and Saly Mak, Co-Owners of Rinaldo Hair Designers and Spa Lansdowne
“I’m a proud graduate of Versailles Academy’s 2014 Professional Hairstylist program. I received a great education and plenty of hands-on experience while studying at the Academy. My program prepared me for my successful career as a Hairstylist and Colourist. I would recommend this program for anyone interesting in pursuing their passion of barbering and hairstyling.”
