Introducing Absolute Beauty: a collective of trainee beauty therapists, studying to become fully-qualified for salon and spa work.
I think this is such a fabulous idea that is worth sharing with you.
As part of their Beauty Therapy Traineeship, Absolute Beauty is setting up an Open Salon. This is to help gain the necessary hours of experience during their course, run by iSkills. The Open Salon will be held in the CMD Training Institute, Collooney, Co. Sligo.
The salon will be providing clients with high quality treatments at discounted rates.
The grand opening of the salon is on this Thursday, 7th of April. All funds raised from these treatments will be given to the North West Hospice.
The salon will be open every Thursday (9am-4pm) and Friday (9am-1pm) from April 7th to November 2016.
This is a purely educational salon and not at all a business. Therapists are not yet fully qualified, but have completed their CIBTAC Beauty Specialist exams.
All salon treatments will be performed by the students, under the watchful eye of their tutors.
✓ facials (Express €10, Deluxe €15)
✓ waxing (€3-€10)
✓ eyelash/eyebrow tinting (€3)
✓ manicure (€5)
✓ pedicure (€7)
✓ make-up application
Thalgo products will be used in their treatments. See full price list here.
Please keep in mind a patch test will be needed for a tint or wax treatment 24hrs before the appointment.
Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are also available.
Note from the therapists: ‘All of this is to aid our learning and help us gain much needed experience in the beauty industry. Anyone who receives a treatment from us is helping us take the necessary steps to becoming fully qualified beauty therapists. If we can build up a database of regular clientele we will be able to keep the salon open until our final exams in November.’
I, for one, cannot wait to visit this salon! Luxury treatments at discounted prices, for such a fantastic cause… all the while helping the girls on their way to achieving their dream career. Sounds like a win win situation to me!
Thanks for reading and happy pampering!
