CONFIDENCE IS KEY! This school has helped bring so much confidence out from within me. Body Pro Academy is a great school to get enrolled in and as a graduate I miss being in class. From the moment i stepped into the school i was surprised at how wonderful and elegant it was, the music was calm and the atmosphere was relaxing. Behind the doors the atmosphere is … WORK, WORK, WORK..the opposite of relaxation and that’s the best part. The instructors, Donna, Niome and Mekisha, make sure you are on task and getting the help you need as a student to achieve your own personal goals of improvement. “Take it off”, “do it again” … words that helped me improve and still help me in improving today. Skin care, nails, massage, makeup … all such a wonderful experience and lots of fun. Personally, i never touched makeup until after i enrolled into the school, and now… I LOVE IT and found a new path as a makeup artist ;D. I definitely recommend this school to anyone with a passion to learn or simply improve their skills.

I had the most amazing experience while I took the makeup course at body pro. All the instructors were always welcoming and guided me throughout the whole course. I truly advice anyone who is into any beauty or aesthetics programs to have a look at Body Pro because they have so much to offer and you will be certified in no time. Because how much I enjoyed my time there I am now doing the hair course cause i truly cant get enough.

What a ridiculously awesome experience I had at BodyPro! It was almost like an emotional experience!
There are two things I would like to point out that separates BodyPro from other schools
1) One on one time with Donna, our instructor
I don’t believe you will find this at any other school. Donna takes the time with each of her students to tell them exactly what they are doing well and where they need to improve. This in my opinion is priceless. You get to learn from someone who has been in the industry for over ten years.Someone who keeps it real, if she doesn’t think you are doing a good job she will let you know, there is no sugar coating. We are paying to learn and this is exactly what she gives us.
2) Learning about technique before anything else
As Donna would say if you don’t know the science behind it you are not going to understand how to do the job well. She teaches you the techniques first, the secrets you don’t see on youtube or instagram! She gives you the easiest and fastest way to do every makeup look. Donna is realistic, she teaches you so that you are prepared to deal with every client in a professional manner. As she would say we all love cut crease but not everyone can pull off a cut crease ! She teaches you to know your clients and know what will work on your clients!
If you are passionate about makeup and want to take your work to the next level this school is right where you want to be.
Thank you everyone at Body Pro Donna, Aeida, Niome and Mekisha for making this course an unforgettable one!

I graduated from Body Pro Academy last summer with my diploma in Advanced Esthetics and have only positive things to say about this school. I visited a couple schools before I made my final decision but when I entered Body Pro for the first time I had an immediate feeling of “this is where I want to go to school!”. The interieur design of the facility is beautiful and very tasteful but what left an even bigger impression on me was my meeting with the director, Donna. She is very charismatic and instantly made me feel comfortable and welcome. After a thorough presentation and introduction of what Body Pro has to offer and a tour through the school it was easy for me to decide that this school would be the one and I never regretted it for even one second.
The 9 month program Advanced Esthetics just flew by and it was the best learning experience I ever had. The teachers are very knowledgable and skilled and I learned tons from them. Thanks to this wonderful team I left the school confident and with the knowledge that Im best prepared for the beauty industry and its challenges!

Body Pro Beauty & Aesthetics Academy Inc is an amazing school and I’ve enjoyed every second I’ve been a student here. I’m currently finishing the hairstyling program and it has been wonderful. The program itself has taught me so much and the teachers are incredible. They really want you to succeed and do everything they can to make sure that happens. They’ve been responsible for placements and interviews and I could not be more thankful for all the opportunities body pro and the instructors have provided for me!
Bianca S.: (Hairstyling) Graduated ’15
I came into the Nail Technician and 3D Nail Art courses by chance here – I had never considered learning anything new or continuing my education when I was 45. Almost a year later, I’ve completed both classes and couldn’t be happier with my choice of school. Cheap fees? No way. You get what you pay for – do not forget that. Easy instructors? Not a chance. They push you hard and want you to do well. And if you do well, you know you learned from the best. Nail techs, we all know there are ‘chop shops’ out there, and when you graduate from here, you are waaaay too good for them.聽
The 3D Nail art class is taught by a nail industry pro who traveled to South Korea to learn some neat things and she passed on so much to us. You will learn all the cool stuff that you follow on Instagram and business practices that YouTube could never, ever teach you. It’s amazing!

I have had the pleasure of attending and completing the Makeup Artistry Program at Body Pro Beauty & Aesthetics Academy. When I discovered Body Pro I felt right at home. I found the school environment to be warm, non-judgemental, and professional. The instructors are enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and talented professionals and I appreciated the hands on guidance and constant encouragement they provided. The experience was worth it and I definitely recommend this school to anyone who is seeking a career in the beauty industry. I have become more confident and skilled in my abilities as a Makeup Artist and I have Body Pro to thank for that.
Dana K: (Makeup Artistry) Graduated ’15
This school is really good. It prepares you for real life situations. This school prepared me to open and run my own business. The instructors are amazing, and it’s fun to be around them. They are passionate about what they do and this really benefits us as the students. There is a salon in the school that we can use to practice on real clients which helps us build our confidence before we leave the school. There is help provided every step of the way. Also as an “alumni” student, they always have their doors open in case we ever have any questions. I enrolled in the nail tech diploma/license program and the advanced Japanese 3D nail art certification course and I am genuinely happy that I chose to come to this school as it has pushed me to reach my goals.
I would like to add that the environment is very positive in every way.
The teachers are constantly upgrading themselves to stay current and always up to date on any of the latest trends, they work fashion shows, photos shoots and so much more and any information we receive as students is always current.

I have always been obsessed with makeup and aspired to be a makeup artist so I decided to go to Body Pro! The staff is very nice and the place is beautiful! What I loved was that they spent time with each student and worked with them based on their skill level and needs. Everyone was encouraged to support each other in such a positive environment! The school is always there to support and help you even when you graduate! They always follow up and provide you with opportunities to get involved and improve! It was a lot of fun; you’ll never want to leave!

I attended Body Pro from 2012 – 2013 and I’m very happy with my overall experience. The atmosphere of the school is really inviting, everyone is happy to be there and it’s decorated really nicely. The instructors treat you like friends rather than students so you have a better relationship with them which is a good thing because there are small classes. I prefer the small classes because you get better one on one time and the teachers will go through everything thoroughly in case you don’t understand. I am very happy with my experience at Body Pro and re-do the experience if I could.

“Hi my name is Amanda and I can’t tell you how much I loved being at Body Pro Beauty & Aesthetics Academy. The teachers are great and very helpful, class sizes are small so you can get one on one with the teachers, they give you the support and confidence you need to work on real clients. I loved the fact that it’s hands on training and not just theory. I was enrolled into their Nail Technician course and loved it! Now that I have finished and graduated the course. I have been thinking of taking another course with Body Pro. The environment is absolutely amazing and the teachers are encouraging, I would recommend anyone that is looking into Aesthetics to enroll, you won’t regret it. My experience at Body Pro has been exciting and well worth it! Body Pro has made me confident in my abilities and I thank the school and teachers for teaching me all that I know.”

“My experience at Body Pro Aesthetics Academy was an exceptional one, I have not only found the career path I have been looking for, but I also found I have become a much stronger, confident and successful woman, with the help and guidance of my instructors. I know I will excel in my career, due to the structure of teaching, theory combined with practical, as well as the immense support and encouragement from the instructors. It has been the best decision I ever made, the only regret I have is I wish I had completed this course earlier”
Sukh Nijjar (Advanced Aesthetics) Graduated 2013
“My overall experience with body pro was amazing! I truly enjoyed waking up and getting ready for an eventful day in class, with other amazing artists. I gained everything that I was looking for within the course. I feel I have had an overall change in my outlook of my self and on how I present myself to others. I feel extremely confident now that I have graduated going forth in my field. I would definitely recommend Body Pro to friends and family. Some of my clients book me based on the fact that my training was done from Body Pro. Amazing school, Amazing staff!”
Nanit Basi (Makeup Artistry) Graduated 2013
My experience at the school was positive. The Instructors were knowledgeable, friendly and went above and beyond to help you succeed not only in the course but also in your career path. I would honestly recommend Body Pro to everyone who is determined to succeed and has drive! After graduating, I started a new career (not a job) as an assistant manager at a fabulous “Organic Girls Spa “in Oakville. I will be able to help girls of all ages to enhance their inner beauty, help them with confidence and build their self-esteem. As a part of the managing team and being a certified aesthetician, I will be helping build and introduce a new exciting Organic skincare line and services for adults.

“My experience at Body Pro was amazing! The teachers are so helpful and friendly. It is a very professional atmosphere and a beautiful place to be learning. Everyone was so happy and it made learning so much easier. For me, I feel like I came out of school very educated and I feel I learned a lot about myself as well, almost like a brand new person! Thank you so much for everything, you guys are absolutely fabulous. I tell everyone about it and I could not have asked for a better place to learn aesthetics. For the short amount of time I was there, I learned so much! Thank you! “
Sierra Jeans (Advanced Aesthetics) Graduated 2011
“My experience at Body Pro was very rewarding. At a time in life where I was reluctant to pursue a career change, I was referred to the Academy by a friend that saw my passion for the beauty industry. The instructors were able to take that passion and channel it to reality. I learned an abundance of helpful information to pave the way to success. I have been prepared to fullest to pursue my goals. Thank you Body Pro team for your support. I am grateful to have been a part of such a fantastic school and have met great friends along the way.”

“This is a very satisfying educational experience I have had. What I enjoyed the most were the instructors! They were always willing to help, so encouraging; always present, always willing to give the reasons why. They made me feel comfortable right off the bat! The learning environment is very structured and well disciplined. The course was an excellent life experience for me and I truly enjoyed it.”
Nonica Sarin (Certified Aesthetician) Graduated 2010
“The Advanced Aesthetics course I took at Body Pro was one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever made, the overall experience was awesome. I walked in with little knowledge of the field and came out as a whole new person. I have my instructor to thank because she was amazing and always pushed me that extra mile. I’m really excited to take my new abilities and go further into the aesthetics field as an aesthetician or a spa owner. I thank Body Pro for helping me and pointing me in the right direction for my new future”
Gina Ciurleo (Certified Aesthetician) Graduated 2010
“Body Pro has given me an experience that has changed my life. I have learned so many things not only about the industry, but also about myself. I have found out who I want to be as an aesthetician, as a part of the beauty industry, and as a person. I have gained so many skills I know will follow as I pursue my career in aesthetics. The combination of theory, practical, and detailed demos, made understanding modules a lot more reassuring. Body Pro has above all, given me the allowance to find my passion. I have always imagined myself in the beauty industry, and I was looking for the fundamentals, and tools to get where I wanted to be. Body Pro has given that to me. I feel confident that I can be a successful aesthetician, and be able to say I love this industry everyday. I want to thank all the staff that has helped shape me into the person I am today, and the aesthetician I will be.”
