About us

Valmy International Beauty Academy was established with the objective to provide hands-on training experience of the highest standard for its students. We have gained a stellar reputation for offering a wide-range of courses of makeup, cosmetology, beauty therapy, massage and Spa management in addition to complementary business courses, all of which are accredited by world-class qualifications.

Valmy International Beauty Academy began its operations in Jal El Dib, Lebanon in the year 2008. It was founded by Caroline Alam who formerly owned SPA Holistics, distributing world renowned skincare products and spa-amenities distribution firm based in Dubai.

In cooperation with the Christine Valmy Beauty School in New York, Caroline pioneered the opening of the first beauty school with an International qualification and accreditation in the Middle East.

VIBA prides itself on not only being a highly-credited beauty academy, but also a full-service spa, where clients can enjoy a wide array of services; from the indulgent Hollywood oxygen facial and Vichy shower massages to IPL laser treatments, makeup services, as well as manicures and pedicures - just to name a few.

We help our students achieve their beauty career through:

“Our goal is to provide high-quality education and help our students become marketable and adaptable, both nationally and internationally” – Caroline Alam, Founder of VIBA

VIBA was established with a vision to provide a standard on cosmetology that would later become the benchmark amongst beauty academies across the Middle Eastern region. We became the first beauty school in the MENA region to be awarded with accreditations for IMA, CIBTAC, and CIDESCO which entitles us to offer students the opportunity of sitting towards International examinations.
