The students run a working salon at times throughout the year which helps them to get some real life experience of a working salon such as booking appointments and customer service. It also gives all students a chance to get hair and beauty treatments themselves, giving them an opportunity to communicate within a salon environment.


We also like to take the students out to visit local salons, colleges and trade outlets, they can then get a real feel for the industry.
