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 had the most amazing experience today at Excel Salon & Spa! Having just moved to Kelowna 6 weeks ago- I have no friends or contacts. So...I dropped in to ask if I could make an appt for a color. The next thing you know I was sitting in Terri's chair and they had Traci on the phone to come in and take care of my gel nails that were a mess! Everyone was so kind and friendly and TALENTED!! I am so happy with my hair and my nails are on the road to full recovery and look fantastic!! I really feel like I found the best salon in Kelowna! One more thing - the owner- Judy- is exquisite and incredibly nice. I am soooo happy! Charlene from Vancouver (Tsawwassen)
