ginas-first-sliderGina’s College is registered as a Private Career College under the Private Career Colleges Act 2005.

Our mission is to provide the advanced training you need and to develop your competitive edge to succeed within today’s aesthetic industry. Our affiliation with one of Canada’s oldest premier spas, Gina’s Spa, located in Waterloo, and with Intercosmetics, a leading spa and beauty supplier for more than 30 years, allows us to draw upon valuable resources and information which is regularly incorporated into our curriculum.

Being a CIDECSO approved school guarantees our students a level of education recognized world wide to be the best.

 We are constantly updating our programs to include the latest, most in-demand services and industry advancements, so that our graduates are always ahead of the competition.

This enables our graduates to work independently in their own business or in some of the most prestigious beauty spas in Canada.


Gina’s College teaches the European method as learned by founders Gina De Cicco and Cristina De Cicco in Italy. With many years of experience they then expanded the method to master the traditional techniques of the trade while taking advantage of the most modern technologies. Our programs far exceed the norm and continually elevate the standards of aesthetics.

We pride ourselves in our delivery style incorporating a comprehensive theory with at least 50% devoted to practical application. The students will gain hands on experience daily in the school’s apprenticeship clinic working on each other and the public, under instructor’s supervision. Students also learn about and use prestigious European products, such as RVB, an Italian product line of the highest quality. All this enables our graduates to enter the field with the complete skills, knowledge and confidence needed to be readily employable and highly in demand.
