The Zone Hair and Beauty Salon

Get into‘The Zone’ for exceptional training in professional Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy courses. The Folkestone Academy’s training salon, The Zone offers a full range of hairdressing and beauty treatments, all performed by NVQ Hair & Beauty students. 

Since the Academy opened in September 2007, NVQ Hair & Beauty students have been learing their trade in the industry standard salon sponsored by professional brands. In September 2013, The Zone expanded, opening a dedicated beauty room to accommodate the teaching of further specialised beauty techniques, such as spray tanning, Spa treatments, facial and body electrical treatments and massage.

State of the art training salons; The Zone Hair Salon and The Zone Beauty Room, allow students to train in highly functional, modern surroundings with up to date facilities. Training alongside highly qualified and experienced tutors, students gain operational knowledge of working with the public in the salon, whilst gaining your professional qualifications.


Clients choose from eyebrow shaping and tinting, manicure, pedicure, facials, waxing, and a range of hairdressing services to include cut, colour, set, blow dry, perming and conditioning treatments, all performed under the watchful eye of professional tutors

“The student that washed, cut and styled my hair was very professional, polite and we had great conversation throughout. I was impressed with the facilities the salon had to offer and I intend to use them on a regular basis as it’s so reasonable too!” Emma Jones Client of The Zone
“I had a wash and blow dry and eyebrow shape and I feel incredibly relaxed, I nearly fell asleep. The students were really professional and put me at ease striaght away. I had a lovely cup of tea and shortbread biscuit and felf really pampered. I will definately book again.” Client of The Zone
“The massage made me feel good about myself mentally & physically, I’m just so relaxed!” Mary Anderson Client of The Zone


“I was really please with the highlights, lowlights, cut & blow dry, the colour looks so natural and the cut feels & looks great. I really enjoyed the head massage during the shampoo/conditioning treatment, the atmosphere is clam and friendly - I will definitely be coming back” Julia Rossi Client of The Zone

Since the Academy opened in September 2007 the NVQ Hair and Beauty students have been learning their trade in the industry standard salon.

“Before I started my wonderful job at The Academy I had my own business so I know what employers are looking for in hair and beauty employees. Our students are a credit to The Academy and we are very proud of them and their achievements, they are a joy to teach and I would certainly have considered employing any of them had I still had my own salon” (Amanda Gillett, Head of Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy)

The salon itself is state of the art and wouldn’t look out of place on a chic high street, with students looking every inch the part in their professional uniforms. The buzz of the salon is all left behind when you enter the beauty treatment rooms, which are softly scented with aromatherapy oils and treatment couches are laid with fresh towels.

Hair and Beauty students have gone from strength to strength this year as their skill base grows. With the annual Hair and Beauty catwalk show students can showcase their creativity and skillset in a unique and professional manner.
