The KES Hair & Beauty salon is a fully equipped and professional salon located within its own purpose built building in the school grounds.
As part of the range of vocational courses that the school offers, Hairdressing is taught in the salon, preparing students for work placement.
In order for students to gain a full industry based qualification in hairdressing, they have to be able to perform a variety of services. These services are performed on clients under a teacher’s strict supervision.
Clients are often parents, school staff and other students, but the salon is also open to members of the community, who can take advantage of a wide range of services for a small donation.
The hair salon is an open plan learning environment and professional products are used, including Matrix and Wella.
The Salon is open on a Monday and Tuesday from 8.30am to 2pm.
Our Sixth Form students are able to carry out the following hair services on all members of the community for a voluntary donation for the products used:
- Ladies and gents cutting (including clipper cuts)
- Colouring and styling
- Sets and blowdrys
- Curling and plaiting
- Gent’s barber services, including beards, eyebrows and moustaches
