Sally Beauty recently asked our senior Hair and Beauty team to officially open their latest Birmingham store in Sheldon.
Sally Beauty is a global distributor and retailer offering professional beauty products to both retail customers and trade salon professionals; selling hair colour, hair care, nails, salon, and other beauty supplies.
Jess Harper, Store Manager for Sheldon has had a relationship with South & City College for a while now, back when she was the manager of the Redditch store. Sally’s has been a college supplier for equipment and all things hair and beauty that our students’ need in order to learn.
Jess has also been in to deliver talks about career opportunities to all of our hairdressing, barbering, beauty and makeup students at our Digbeth, Hall Green and Bournville campuses. 317 students have signed up for a trade discount card and all students were given a £20 voucher to use on anything they liked, they just needed to pay the VAT.
Speaking at the opening event Jess said, “It is great working with a training provider that promotes professional products and we are happy to support the students with a variety of high-end products and equipment to help them, not only with their training, but into their professional careers in the future.”
Michelle Turney, one of our Level 3 Hairdressing students said, “We are so lucky to have such dedicated tutors who not only think about what we need now, but continue to support us when we leave college.
“We love going to Sally’s, they have everything we need to practice our craft and they give us great advice when we visit. The products for Afro Caribbean hair is really competitively priced, so I will definitely continue to purchase from them.”
Senior Technician for Hair & Beauty, Carol English added, “We have such a great working relationship with Sally’s and they have supported our students with employer engagement, along with the support the students need as they start to develop into professional stylists and therapists.”
