Debenhams customers were delighted with tasters of the hair and beauty treatments that are available at our on-site Retreat Salon, at a special store event.

Students gave away free hair, nail, make up and massage experiences to visitors at Stockport Debenhams on December 5, to share a flavour of our top drawer talent.

Stockport Nail Department is still celebrating gold and silver medal wins in the UK’s largest competition for colleges, WorldSkills UK, and the stars of next year’s competition came to the event.

Client Rita Strickland is considering a visit to Retreat Salon at Stockport College after receiving blush pink nails from Nail Services student Shannon Smith.

Rita from Cheadle Hulme said: “I needed something like this! It’s really great having my nails done and I’ll definitely be thinking about cut price treatment from Retreat Salon in the future.”

Fellow Debenhams customer Chris Hustler was over the moon with her glittering golden nails, applied in three coats by Level 2 Beauty student Mia Hodges.

Chris said: “I came in especially for this! My nails have been done very well and Mia has a lovely conversational manner. I’ll be showing these off when I go to my daughter’s house for Christmas.”

Meanwhile, Manal was very impressed with her hair from Level 3 Hairdresser Gemma Walker that was “glamorous” and “on trend”.

Gemma said: “I took each section of hair and put it round the curler and held it for a few seconds took it away and held the curl in place while it was still warm. That’s how we give the sense of a good curl.”

Media Make Up students were also on hand to provide Debenhams customers with new looks.

Level 2 Beauty Therapy student Jeorgia Bonsall said: “Debenhams is a great learning environment. It helps practise taking your time giving treatments and how not to rush.”

Retreat Salon is accessible through Stockport College reception from Monday to Friday by making an appointment on 0161 296 5742. For more information visit Retreat Salon.
