The Humber Spa recently extended its hours to help accommodate Humber students and staff.

The new expanded hours run through Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and while Thursday’s hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Before the new hours were extended, services were only available between Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Members of the community expressed interest in coming in at different times for our services, so we extended hours and added an extra day to better suit our client’s needs,” said Antonietta Perretta, coordinator and spa manager for the Esthetician and Spa Management program.

“These extended hours not only benefit our clients but our students in the program as well.”

With an extra day and new hours, students, faculty, and community members can enjoy the many services available.

The Humber Spa offers manicures and pedicures, customized facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion at a fraction of the cost.

All services are done by students in the Esthetician/Spa Management program who are overseen by a Lab Technologist who is a service expert, giving students a hands-on learning experience in what to expect in the field.

“Clients know when they come in for a service at The Humber Spa their service will be done correctly,” Perretta said. “We are very prescriptive in the way that our protocols are designed and our students have to follow these protocols when providing a service.”

Second year student of the Esthetician and Spa Management Program, Leah Steele said she had positive feedback for the spas new extended hours.

“By extending the spas hours, its opening up more opportunity for students to get more experience in the lab. We can now get more clients to service and overall get more comfortable with the whole process,” she said.

A new service to the Humber Spa called the Oxygeneo, a three-in-one facial that is supposed to reveal younger skin, will be phased in for the Winter Semester.
