Q&A is much more than a salon. It is the jewel of our Hair School: a state-of-the-art, multi-million dollar learning laboratory where we provide cutting edge, real life training to our Hair students. Going far beyond the standard Hair School curriculum, our Program offers students the rare and precious opportunity to learn, practice, evolve and perfect in an actual salon environment.
Located amidst the buzzing hub of Robson Street, Q&A’s soaring ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass, stainless steel and clean, contemporary lines are the perfect background to showcase the incredible talent of our Hair School. Q&A is a 100% student-operated, fully equipped, professional hair salon, where our students harness what they have learned to create cuts, colours, chemical treatments and more, on real clients in real time.
At Q&A our students work with top brands and professional product lines including Oribe, Goldwell, Bumble and Bumble and Kevin Murphy. Using and learning with professional products not only ensures that our curriculum is current and cutting edge, but also provides our Hair students with essential product knowledge and advanced education. This is an integral part of our hands-on, experiential approach to education.
Q&A is connected – both physically and philosophically – to CurliQue, our in house Beauty Boutique. Being connected directly to CurliQue exponentially expands our students’ product repertoire, giving them the unique opportunity to practice with hundreds of different products. Through direct product training and interaction, and mentoring by our CurliQue Pro Talent team, our students gain expertise and confidence in using the products themselves, and in showing clients how to style and take care of their hair.
Together, Q&A and CurliQue form our Learning Laboratory. The two venues synchronize to create a multisensory, multilateral learning experience that unites hands-on education with advanced training and professional skills building, all in a real-life retail environment. This unique approach produces well-rounded, polished and experienced individuals who can adapt seamlessly from classroom to career. It also enables our students to develop client relationships even before they graduate. Many of these clients follow our students throughout their professional journeys in the Hair industry.
Please note that Q&A and CurliQue are closed on Sundays and Mondays. On these days, Hair Services will be performed at our State-of-the-Art Robson Street Campus, located in the same block on Robson Street, just a few doors away. Our Robson Street location features the same top brands, cutting edge services, professional equipment and contemporary atmosphere as our Q&A location – and of course, the same amazing talent of our Student Stylists.
