salon in Dover town centre, beauty students are now expanding the
Celine McGeown, curriculum development manager for learner and
client experience at the college’s Dover campus said: “Both clients
and students are benefiting from the salon experience.
“The salon celebrates its first year open in Biggin Street
this month and the main focus has been hair, now our beauty
offering is now fully up and running.
"Clients love the fact that they can pop into during their
breaks to get a treatment ranging from a wax, facial, massage,
manicure & Pedicure, eye treatment and, coming soon,
K College level two students went in over the Easter holidays
especially to complete a number of assessments needed to qualify
Jessica Hutchings, who lives in Dover, said: “It was really
scary at first but it was such a good experience. It gives you an
idea of what it will be like to work in a real environment - it’s a
lot different from the training salon.”
Sinead Irvine, also from Dover, said how much she enjoyed the
experience and added that clients said that they liked being able
to have a manicure and get their hair done at the same time.
To mark the anniversary students are hosting a mini taster
evening on Monday May 13 from 6-9.30pm at the salon. Anyone who
would like to treat themselves to a mini pamper, manicure, hand
massage, pedicure or facial should book their place on 01304
Each treatment will be £5 and takes 15 minutes. K Salon will
send confirmation of the appointment date and time.
