The College has a range of salons across its campuses which are open to the general public, students and staff during term time. Clients can choose from a wide range of beauty, nail and hair treatments, as well as holistic therapies. Our salons use industry standard equipment and technology. Students range in level of skill and are supervised by fully qualified lecturers to ensure that they provide a high quality service.

The treatments in our training salons are low prices and we use recognised product brands. Students provide a relaxed, friendly and professional atmosphere and are always looking for clients.


A skin test will be required before hair colouring treatments, and should be carried out 24-48 hours prior to treatment. Unfortunately we cannot provide a hair colouring treatment to anyone under the age of 16. A patch test is also required prior to tinting and perming treatments and should be conducted at least 48 hours prior to treatment.
