The Worshipful The Mayor of Ipswich Councillor John Le Grys opened a new beauty salon at Suffolk One this week.
He had a look around the new development at Ipswich's largest sixth form centre and chatted to beauty learners before officially unveiling a commemorative plaque.
Whilst he contemplated receiving a treatment, instead he opted to observe students at work.
On opening the beauty salon, he said, "I used to live near Suffolk One and watched with great interest as the building began to take shape. Looking around today, it really is an amazing place."
"Overall, it was a great honour to officially open the latest facility on site. The beauty learners will be able to gain the skills they need to start a career in this field, thanks to this new salon. I wish them all the very best in the future and I would like to also congratulate all the staff involved in this project."
Beauty therapy teacher, Karla Crosby-Smith, set up the visit. She said, "We would like to thank The Worshipful The Mayor of Ipswich Councillor John Le Grys for supporting this project."
"We have created this area as we want to be able to give our learners some 'real life' experience in an industry that they want to work within. Now that the salon has been opened, we are looking forward to welcoming members of the public in for a range of eye, facial, nail and hair treatments - at incredibly reasonable prices."
To book treatments, you can visit a brand new website - beauty.suffolkone.ac.uk - email firstname.lastname@example.org - or call 01473 556600.
