Part­ner­ship pays off for col­lege stu­dents

The Intelligencer (Belleville) - - NEWS -

Ste. Anne’s Spa, one of Canada’s largest des­ti­na­tion spas, lo­cated in Grafton, is only a 40- minute drive from Belleville.

“We’re lucky to have such a well­re­garded spa close to Loy­al­ist Col­lege,” said Brid­get Fer­gu­son, co­or­di­na­tor of the col­lege’s es­thet­ics and spa man­age­ment diploma pro­gram. “We’re de­lighted to carry Ste. Anne’s Tea on cam­pus, in The Spa. Through our ex­pe­ri­en­tial pro­gram­ming, stu­dents learn about prod­uct devel­op­ment and the re­tail side of the in­dus­try. Our close re­la­tion­ship with Ste. Anne’s en­hances the stu­dent ex­pe­ri­ence.”

On Wed­nes­day, Nov. 14, dur­ing a col­lege- wide well­ness break from noon to 1 p. m., Ste. Anne’s will be on cam­pus to launch its new tea line.

“Our stu­dents are re­ally look­ing for­ward to ex­pe­ri­enc­ing Ste. Anne’s Tea, both from a prod­uct and mar­ket­ing per­spec­tive,” said Fer­gu­son. “We can’t wait to share it with the col­lege com­mu­nity and The Spa’s clien­tele.”

Ste. Anne’s Tea will be avail­able for pur­chase in The Spa on Fri­days, from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m., and on Satur­days, from 10 a. m. to 4 p. m.

“Ste. Anne’s has been for­tu­nate to em­ploy grad­u­ates from Loy­al­ist’s es­thet­ics and spa man­age­ment pro­gram,” said Troy Elzner, brand man­ager at Ste. Anne’s Spa. “We’re proud to sup­port the pro­gram and the pro­fes­sional growth of Loy­al­ist stu­dents. Hav­ing our sig­na­ture line of teas avail­able for pur­chase at The Spa is a great op­por­tu­nity for stu- dents to hone their re­tail and vis­ual mer­chan­dis­ing skills with a prod­uct from a high- end spa.”

Dur­ing the col­lege’s well­ness break, Kanav Sar­dana, an es­thet­ics and spa man­age­ment stu­dent, will high­light the 16 beau­ti­fi­ca­tions of an In­dian bride, re­ferred to as the So­lah Shringar, while demon­strat­ing make- up tech­niques. Be­fore com­ing to Loy­al­ist, he prac­tised make- up artistry in In­dia.

“Make- up is dif­fer­ent in ev­ery cul­ture,” said Sar­dana. “At Loy­al­ist, I get to build on my past ex­pe­ri­ences and share my knowl­edge with the col­lege com­mu­nity.”

Stu­dents in Loy­al­ist’s es­thet­ics and spa man­age­ment pro­gram train in a full range of spa ser­vices in a safe learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment, in­clud­ing man­i­cures, pedi­cures, fa­cials, hair re­moval, make- up artistry, aro­mather­apy and hot stone mas­sage. They re­ceive the high­est tech­ni­cal skills in Loy­al­ist’s state- of- the art lab us­ing the lat­est in skin­care tech­nol­ogy, in­clud­ing mi­cro­der­mabra­sion and fa­cial ma­chin­ery.

Stu­dents work with new med­i­cal spa equip­ment, in­clud­ing the Son­i­ca­tor 740, an anti- ag­ing skin­care sys­tem that ap­plies ul­tra­sound tech­nol­ogy, and the IPL An­gelite, an In­tense Pulsed Light ( IPL) ma­chine used for photo fa­cials and per­ma­nent hair re­duc­tion. They also learn the busi­ness side of spa man­age­ment with in­struc­tion in vis­ual dis­play, re­tail sales, mar­ket­ing, per­sonal fi­nance, busi­ness com­mu­ni­ca­tions and en­trepreneur­ship. The pro­gram is cur­rently ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for Jan­uary 2019 and is look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing fu­ture es­theti­cians to the col­lege.

The Spa’s stu­dent- de­signed Buck­wheat and Shea But­ter Ex­fo­li­a­tion Back Treat­ment is avail­able un­til De­cem­ber 14. This in­no­va­tive treat­ment deeply mois­tur­izes the back with its creamy and non- ir­ri­tat­ing in­gre­di­ents, such as shea but­ter, buck­wheat bran, soy­bean oil and vi­ta­min E. It’s ben­e­fi­cial in pre­par­ing dull, tired and sen­si­tive skin for the win­ter. The treat­ment costs $ 33.90 and in­cludes a com­pli­men­tary mini make- up con­sul­ta­tion and colour rec­om­men­da­tion.
