New salon facilities

The world’s leading long hair expert atrick Cameron has heaped praise on Doncaster College’s newly refurbished salon

The salon, renamed Inspire after the £30,000 refit, was officially opened by New Zealander Patrick on Monday, October 12 – and he even showed off his styling skills to watching students and invited guests. The open-to-the-public salon refurbishment has been funded by Success Doncaster and hair giant Wella – and the College will become a Wella Professionals Centre of Excellence.

The College’s 200 hairdressing students started to use the new facilities from September. Having just returned from presentations in Venezuela, Switzerland and Romania, Patrick wowed the crowd at The Hub showing off his skills on two models.

He said: “This is the first time I have been to the College and I have been very impressed. With the entrance to the salon connected to the outside and near a car park, it’s in the perfect location for the town. “It’s a fantastic salon and it looks brilliantly with all the students dressed in red and black just like the salon. Doncaster College has upped the ante with this salon – this is what other colleges are striving for.”

Kelly English, Assistant Director of the Academy of Commercial Enterprise at Doncaster College, said: “Not only will the new salon enable our hairdressing students to learn in some of the best training salons around but it also provides the Doncaster public with a new and exciting place to get their hair done – and at very competitive prices.

“The salon, under supervision, will be run by the College’s most experienced students, offering customers all the latest styles and services.”
