Testimonials

"The Esthetician program was one of the best experiences of my life; it brought me closer to my ultimate goal: that of being a more accomplished individual. The program has given me the knowledge and credentials to obtain experience in well recognized companies of the beauty industry. I never thought I would achieve so much in two years. In Seneca I believed, I achieved, and I was able to succeed!"

Talita Rovaron
Graduate

“After having worked in the United States and Canada at some of the leading spas in North America it truly makes me proud to say that I gained my education at Seneca College. The Esthetician Program at Seneca is one of the best. It is far superior to most esthetic programs available today. The education I received there has allowed me to excel in the spa industry and provided a strong foundation for my future.”
