A brand new nail salon to train students and cater to the public has opened at Petroc in Barnstaple.

The Nail Bar on the college's main Sticklepath campus is a new purpose built facility holding 15 nail stations where nail technicians of the future will be refining their skills.

The salon is also open to the public, who can book an appointment to have their nails done by trainee students at a competitive price under expert supervision.

The City and Guilds Level 2 in Nail Technology is a brand new course offered by Petroc and was developed after research showed nail treatments were a growing industry and that good nail technicians are in great demand by employers.
