Hair and beauty students at Redbridge College have moved into a new building.

The Ilford Skills Academy opened yesterday.

Hairdressing student Christina Head, 25, at the academy, said: "The new salons are a lot more up-to-date than our last ones and they look much more professional.

"They’re really nice and spacious, and way more modern. I’m sure that our customers will feel right at home here, and really be able to relax."

An open day at the training salons will be held on February 12 from 4pm.
