About Us


I just finished several classes with Sylvie and it was fantastic! She is a world of information and takes such pride in the education of this industry! So many people come into the beauty industry and want to do everything but really don't take the time to learn anything or invest in their craft. She is outstanding at what she does and I truly appreciate all her knowledge..

I took the Hyperpigmentation class and it was so informative and educational. Ms. Sylvie took her time with the students and made sure each of us had questions/concerns addressed before moving on. I am looking forward to my next educational session. I would also like to address the below negative comments as I was also in that same class. As a witness to the below situation, I saw an entirely different scenario, starting with the ladies showing up late for class and disrupting the sessions in an unprofessional and childlike behavior. This is the trouble with social media; people can use hurtful words to destroy professional credibility because of their own lack of maturity, professionalism and concern for others.

I have now taken 4 classes at Selective Esthetics and plan on taking many more! I absolutely adore Sylvie and am so thankful that I found her for skincare education. She is incredibly knowledgeable and offers many tips and tricks to help working estheticians currently in the industry. She takes her time to educate you and answers any questions you might have. I love her professionalism and how much she prepares you for the class with paperwork and notes. Can't wait to take another class.
Thank you Sylvie!

Ms Archenault has been a mentor to me. Her knowledge in the areas of chemistry, physiology, as well as sales and marketing has been extremely beneficial to my business. I will forever be grateful for the hours of education that she has provided me through the years.

Owner of Carmen Wylie Clinical Skin Care;

It has been an honor to study under Sylvie Archenault. Her expertise on the Vacuodermie and Pressotherapy, as well her amazing knowledge on her skin care line has truly inspired me. Ms Archenault shows great conviction and passion for the skin care industry that is unsurpassed. I look to Sylvie as my mentor in the industry and am excited to continue advancing my education with her.

Vicki Krupansky,

I have known Sylvie Archenault for more than 20 years. During that time I have participated and attended a variety of classes. What makes their classes unique is the depth and intensity of the material taught and the opportunity to participate from the student side.

Ms Archenault's classes emphasize every aspect of the product being taught, right down to the cellular level of the skin. She also provides in-depth marketing and practical help to make the most of the line at your business.

Kathryn Bruno, Owner /Esthetician

I didn't know what to expect from the start when I first signed-up with one of your advanced classes. I really enjoyed and learned a lot. It was beyond my expectations. I will definitely reserve for other classes and recommend you to other Estheticians and Cosmetologists.

Thank you,

I met with Sylvie at her quaint Topanga location for lectures and hands-on practice on several occasions. I felt I had gain so much each time; it would have taken me weeks or so in previous schools. Applying what I learned, in my own practice as an Esthetician, has enabled me to give the best up-to-date skin care treatments and with great ease too. I have trusted her guidance and have no more fear to take on my own professional success. Thank you for making it look so easy .

I have known Sylvie Archenault and her staff for several years. Sylvie  has been so helpful and very impressive with her knowledge & training in Aesthetics. Her classes at her school have been a key factor to stay up-to-date in my knowledge and techniques. If I need any help, questions to be answered, she has always been there to accommodate. She is so sweet and very generous with her time and thoughtfulness.
I really appreciate our relationship that we have and all the support she and her staff has given me
