The Zone - Spa & Salon

Welcome to the Zone

The College’s modern building has within it a range of hairdressing/barbering and beauty salons, as well as a spray tan booth and a fabulous spa facility, all open to the public. The entrance is immediately off College Square at the front of the College, where you can enter the world of the Zone. The equipment is industry-standard and enables the students to learn to use technology which is at the forefront of what top-of-the-range salons use. As a client of the Zone, you will also see that the students only use products that are some of the best available, including Dermalogica and Matrix. You will have an opportunity to purchase any favourite products you may discover.

As soon as you arrive, you will be greeted by our salon receptionists and offered refreshments. Depending on the treatments you have booked, you will then be escorted into our various salons. Within that environment, you will be allocated a student who will look after you and carry out the treatment you have selected. As part of that service the supervising teaching staff will oversee the work of the students, but by the time they work on external clients they have practised and honed their techniques, and so you will experience a first class service at a discounted price as we appreciate you are supporting our students with their training.

Spa Treatments

Our fabulous spa facilities include a calming foot spa area and a monsoon shower with relaxing heat rooms incorporating a sauna, steam room and aromatherapy room. Try one of our floatation treatments in the dry floatation room or combine your spa experience with another treatment in our salons. Robes are available for use by spa clients and you will immediately forget you are in a College as soon as you enter the secluded environment.

Beauty Treatments

We provide a wide range of beauty therapy treatments that can be relaxing, invigorating or can simply offer the finishing touch.

Hair Salon

The Zone has three contemporary hair salons that use high quality product ranges, such as Matrix. You can experience a wide range of hair services including cutting, colouring and styling.
