The Retreat - beauty salon

The Retreat is the Lifestyle Academy's commercial spa area. Update your image, be pampered at the nail bar or be revitalised by one of our many professional beauty treatments.

A range of beauty treatments

Our hair and beauty students provide an extensive range treatments for visitors - from holistic therapies in one of 14 treatment rooms to the latest cutting and colouring techniques in the hairdressing salon. Each treatment room has an electric couch, music and light controls to provide you with a unique and relaxing experience. Our nail bar, with panoramic views across the city, offers the latest nail enhancements and manicures.

Facilities in this haven include a whirlpool bath for up to ten people, a sauna, steam room and feature showers. Alternatively, step into the relaxation zone and laze on heated loungers that stylishly reside underneath a light therapy panel.

What students say

“I work in the college’s Retreat beauty salon once a week where we hold skin clinics and have real clients coming in and paying for treatments. The facilities are amazing and I really enjoy this aspect of the course, I have learnt new therapies which are used in industry such as laser treatments and chemical peels.”
