Salon industry investment and training takes college to next level.
South & City College Birmingham has relaunched its on-site salons, Urban Serenity and Urban Elegance, to allow both its students and customers to experience the next level of high-end hair and beauty treatments.
Last week, TV presenter Joanne Malin officially relaunched the two salons based at the Bournville campus in Longbridge, celebrating the college’s recent partnership with Milkshake, a salon professional hair care brand, as well as its investment in three Elemis Biotec facial treatment machines.
Darren Boon, Milkshake Distributor, said: “Working with a college strengthens our brand because the students are the future. With ongoing training from ourselves, thestudents will go from strength to strength with their passion and desire to succeed.”
As the only educational establishment within the region to possess the Elemis machines, South & City College’s hairdressing and beauty therapy students will be trained in highly-effective, super-charged facial treatments, unavailable elsewhere.
In addition to this, each term, two high-performing Level 3 beauty students will be rewarded with a five-day Biotec training session, significantly enhancing their CV and future employability prospects.
Samantha Rabone, Elemis Area Manager, said: “Elemis have worked with Urban Serenity for some time now and our relationship is developing further… It is a pleasure to support the college and work with professionals that are dedicated to providing phenomenal results to their clients.”
Mike Hopkins, Principal of South & City College, added: “As a college we pride ourselves on the level of skill our students gain when they study with us. Having a state-of-the-art facility like this, which provides genuine private sector work and experience is fantastic for us.”
