a few words about us

When Judy Foster became the owner of Excel Spa in Kelowna in 2011, she had a vision.

She wanted Excel to really excel.

It started with expanding the name to Excel Salon and Spa. Now people looking for a Kelowna hair salon would find Excel and the award-winning team of stylists who have been making people feel beautiful since 1984.

Behind the doors of its spacious Pandosy Street location, Judy was busy giving Excel a new look, too. Today, in the rejuvenated salon, Kelowna clients can enjoy an atmosphere that’s as warm and bright as the staff.  Inside, you’ll find a classy fusion of  modern and Victorian-era style.

At Excel, stylists, estheticians and massage therapists go out of their way to give you a friendly and relaxing experience. Judy believes everyone - a 42-year-old male doctor or a timid teenage girl - should feel welcome and comfortable at Excel.  
As an esthetician with nearly a decade of experience in the industry, Judy understands the importance of client satisfaction. At Excel, staff truly listen to you from the moment you sit in the chair until you step out of the salon. 

In addition to amazing service and one-stop-shopping for all your salon and spa treatments, unlike many Kelowna salons, Excel also gives you value. Even with a team of highly skilled stylists trained to use the latest techniques and products, you won’t have to give up your first born to pay for a stunning cut and colour.

When you’re at Excel, forget about everything else and focus on how good you’re about to look and feel!

  • I recently had my hair styled and foiled by Anna at Excel Salon. I love my new hairstyle and colour. I love it!!!! Anna was extremely confident, fast, and so upbeat and kind. Anna listened to my requests and gave great, helpful advice as to what colours, and techniques she would use to give the desired outcome. While I was waiting for the foils to process, I had the opportunity to get my nails done by Jennah. I had gel polish applied to my natural nails. I got the cutest little, French tips applied to my short nails. Jennah was super fast and made my nails look so nice. I love them!!!! Excel Salon is beautifully set up, the colours are warm, inviting, and modern. The layout is lovely and beautifully decorated, there are thoughtful touches everywhere. Judy and her staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They are very quick to assist you with getting your belongings settled and offer you a refreshment. The prices for services rendered are reasonable. I would not hesitate to go there again. For any pampering you require I encourage you to try Excel Salon and Spa, you truly will not regret it.
