Christine Valmy announced the launch of an original education course: Ownership & Spa Management. This accredited curriculum, approved by the New York State Education Department, was designed to provide beauty and wellness professionals with the knowledge and confidence they need to become business owners and managers.
The 300-hour course, taught in a live-online format, will demystify the sometimes daunting business side of the beauty and wellness industry. The format will give participants the chance to engage with the teacher and classmates in real time for a robust education experience.

Students will gain an in-depth understanding of how to run a successful beauty or wellness business, including market analysis, strategy development, the basics of financing, accounting and operations, branding and marketing, technology infrastructure, sales and customer service, human resources and more.
“We’ve always prided ourselves on delivering a top-quality education with curricula focused on the science and technique of beauty disciplines,” said Marina Valmy, Christine Valmy president and the founder’s daughter. “So many of our students and alumni dream of opening their own salon or becoming managers at prestigious spas. The more we looked into it, the more we realized there weren’t many options for them to learn everything about the business side of the beauty and wellness industry, especially ownership, and especially in an interactive class-style format. That’s when we decided to develop a curriculum that would set these beauty and wellness pros up for success in business.”
The course will be taught by certified instructors who are licensed in a beauty specialties and hold extensive real-world experience in business.
