Support student scissor stars at our Training Salons

Student hairstylists are sharpening up their scissors and their skills as Edinburgh College’s training salons reopen for business next week (14 September).

The college’s Hair & Beauty Training Academies at Granton and Milton Road Campuses offer a range of hair treatments provided by students in top-of-the-range hair salons at discount rates. Customers at the academies get the chance to get their locks chopped by the celebrity stylists of the future while helping these students hone their skills and gain credits towards their final grades. All treatments are delivered under the expert guidance of industry professionals.

Services offered include conditioning treatments, styling and cutting, colour, colour correction and barbering, along with a specialist Nioxin range of treatments.

Frances Bain, the curriculum manager for Hair and Beauty, said: “Getting a treatment at our Edinburgh College salons is a fantastic way to support our students in their development while receiving high-quality professional salon service at a reduced cost. Our students regularly prove their skills in national hairdressing competitions, making the heats of the Wella Xposure competition and picking up prizes from the Association of Hairdressers and Therapists.”

All treatments start from just £5, and the salons are currently offering a variety of annual memberships. For just £70 per academic year, customers can receive an unlimited daytime cut, style and hair treatments. The salons will start to offer beauty therapy treatments from 28 September, with beauty memberships at £100 per year and combined hair and beauty memberships at £150.

The salons are open Monday to Friday 9am-4pm and on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings 4:30pm-7:30 pm.
