Vanessa Reid
owner + esthetician

I graduated from Ottawa Academy of Beauty in 2005, with 13 years in the industry. I still have the need to learn and stay on trend.  I have worked at two busy and popular Aveda Spa’s in Ottawa,  that helped me grow and gain more education and training. It is very important to me to continue to learn about new trends and products, which helps me keep the passion of beauty alive.  I wanted to create a space where you can get your beauty needs met in a new atmosphere unlike the ZEN spas.
