EvelineCharles™ is an internationally recognized salon & spa industry leader and entrepreneurial success story.
In 1974, Eveline Charles entered into the hair & beauty industry and ten years later, she opened her first salon, Bianco Nero, in Edmonton, Alberta. With her creative flair and natural business sense, Eveline soon established Bianco Nero as Edmonton’s premier beauty salon. In 1995, Eveline seized the opportunity to be on the cutting edge of the new day spa movement and expanded her salon to include a full-service spa; by 1998, a second Bianco Nero salon and spa was opened in West Edmonton Mall.
Meanwhile, Eveline stepped out from behind the salon chair to put all of her efforts into developing her salon business. A year later, Eveline was faced with a difficult decision - in order to expand her salon business into other markets and develop beauty product lines she would need a new company name. Bianco Nero was re-branded as EvelineCharles™ Salons • Spas in 1999.
Two new locations were opened by 2001 -- one Calgary hair salon and one Edmonton hair salon. In 2002, the first location outside of Alberta was opened, in Vancouver, British Columbia. Two more beauty salon facilities were opened in 2005 in Calgary, as well as the EvelineCharles™ Academy of Cosmetology and Esthetics in Edmonton, which offers diplomas in Cosmetology (hair) and Esthetics (skin). With over 26,000 square feet, the EvelineCharles™ Academy is the one of the biggest beauty schools of its kind in Canada. In 2006, the company opened the Kelowna hair salon & spa in BC.
Today, EvelineCharles Salons & Spas has 9 locations in Edmonton, Calgary and Kelowna. A complete range of beauty services are offered, including modern hairstyling, colouring, highlights, manicures & pedicures, facials, massage, hair removal (waxing), and wedding packages. The South Edmonton Common location, Calgary Market Mall location and Kelowna Playa Del Sol location offer laser hair removal, Botox, Restylane, chemical peels, photo rejuvenation, skin resurfacing, leg vein treatments, lip enhancements and more.
To satisfy an ever-growing and highly-educated beauty salon clientele, EvelineCharles™ has worked together with international experts to create exclusive beauty product lines in body care, cosmetics, hair care, hair color, nail care and styling tools. EvelineCharles™ launched a comprehensive skincare line in 2007 and later launched a new hair care line.
