In November 2014 Fife College opened its doors to the nation’s very first vented ‘green’ salon. A new and innovative approach to hairdressing, using all things ‘eco’ to ensure students and clients benefit from a unique learning and customer experience which is environmental, health conscious and sector leading in the profession.
From the minute you step in the door you know you are in a salon with a difference! High-tech local extraction vents (LEVs) hover above cutting and colouring stations to remove traces of unwanted chemicals and cleanse the air, while forest scenes adorn the walls. Incorporating ideas such as these into Hairdressing practice begins with training and so to complement our new facilities sustainability has been included in to all our course programmes.
Our ideas are now a reality and our students are benefitting from being trained in an innovative salon and learning about alternative hair products and techniques.
