Students provide treatments to more than 50 customers

Customers were invited to enjoy a fabulous 15% discount on selected products and treatments, including manicures and hair styling provided by the students.

A great way for them to practice in a real-life industry setting, students perfected client care skills in the festive event.

Edith Amoah, Head of Hair and Beauty at West Herts College said: “Working at the salon in Debenhams was a great way for our Level 2 and 3 students to get some quality work experience.

“They provided hair straightening, curling, styling and some really stunning looks, meanwhile another group were providing customers with manicures and gel nail art.”

The team of 12 students worked from 2pm until 8pm, and had a range of requests upon booking.

Edith added: “Getting work experience like this, especially around the busy Christmas period is really vital for the students looking to get into the Hair and Beauty industry.

“In total, they provided hair and beauty services to 53 clients. The Sales Manager was very impressed with their professionalism on the day.

“We’re so proud of the students that took part, lots of very happy customers were feeling glam on their way out!”
