Keighley College goes to great lengths to support the community

Keighley College is offering free haircuts to those who live locally as part of its commitment to the community. 

The Hairdressing department is opening the doors of its socially-distanced salon for its free service. The initiative aims to support people within the community who may be struggling financially and helps people to feel confident during unprecedented times. 

Caroline McGreavy, Apprenticeship Assessor Coach at Keighley College, said: “The students providing the haircuts are studying a new Barbering Diploma Level 2 course at college, giving them the perfect opportunity to build their local clientele. They have all found this an enriching experience where they can practise their skills while engaging with the community.

“At a time where many people are struggling, we feel it’s important to give back to the community. Whether people are attending a job interview or just want to feel good about themselves, our friendly team of students are on hand to help out. The feedback so far has been outstanding; being able to boost people’s confidence gives the students an immense sense of pride.”

The salon has many safety measures in place, including socially distanced seats and the use of face visors, masks, disposable aprons and gloves. To book an appointment, call 01535 685030 and select a time slot.
