HAIR and beauty students are welcoming the public into their salon in Yate to offer a range of treatments as part of their training.
The Cotswold Edge sixth formers are studying for vocational qualifications at Yate International Academy (YIA) and the experience of dealing with customers helps them in their aim of developing a career in the industry.
People will be able to make use of the new service once a fortnight every other Thursday between 11.30am and 5pm, with a small charge imposed to cover the cost of the products used.
On the first day of the scheme, students offered treatments such as eyebrow shaping, facials and eyelash tinting.
In the coming months, they will also include spray tanning, ear piercing, waxing, manicures and pedicures for customers.
A hair and beauty salon was established in 2012 as part of the new building at YIA and anyone who would like to make use of the service should email Kirsty.dennis@trfyia.org.uk to make a booking.
