Why not treat yourself and book into our Hairdressing or Beauty Salons followed by lunch in the Restaurant? If you're looking to host an event, Scottish Borders Campus has a range of accommodation available for hire.

Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy at the Scottish Borders Campus, Galashiels

The Borders College Salon will be closed until further notice!

The ‘state of the art’ salons at Borders College have been furnished with the latest equipment and commercial products, allowing students to learn the latest techniques and treatments.

Our Salons are open to the general public most days of the week during term time, where customers can enjoy a range of hair services and beauty therapy treatments.

Our stylists and therapists are well trained, but they are still students. Services and treatments may take longer so it is best to allow extra time when making an appointment. Please don’t hesitate to ask the receptionist how long to allow for the appointment.

Students are supervised by highly experienced Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy lecturers; their principal aim is to assess students on their practical skills in a realistic working environment and to ensure customers are completely satisfied with the service provided.

Customers are also providing a service to our students, giving them the opportunity to work with clients in a realistic setting, and this is reflected in the price of our services.

Salon Price List

Please note No technical service will be carried out on children under the age of fourteen.

All food in our menu is freshly prepared on a daily basis. It is our aim, as far as practically possible, to use only Scottish produce.
The student teams are led by a Head Waiter and Head Chef, who are usually 2nd or 3rd year students. They act in a supervisory role under the auspices of the lecturer. The Head Waiter and Head Chef are responsible for the planning of the menu, ordering and preparation of the food, direction of their fellow students, cooking and service of the food for your lunch on the day. The Head Waiter and Head Chef are being assessed on their managing skills and abilities, and we value any comments you wish to make.
Throughout the year our aim is to participate in extra events. These events may include Christmas and the popular Borders Banquet. These events will be advertised nearer the time. Please note that we are only open during term time.
We look forward to welcoming both new and returning customers to The Restaurant at Scottish Borders Campus. Due to the increasing popularity of the restaurant, it is advisable to book in advance to avoid any disappointment.
