Local ladies, Ginny Thomson and Christine Gibson marked 26 years as long-standing clients of our Paisley Hair and Beauty Salon this month! Ginny & Christine both from Paisley, who the staff and students affectionately refer to as the “golden girls” have been getting pampered at the Renfrew Road campus since the mid 1990’s.

The pair who are best friends, come in regularly for their hair & beauty treatments then catch up over a tasty lunch catered by our Hospitality students in the training dining room, Weavers Restaurant.

This month the staff and students wanted to make their visit extra special to thank them for their valued custom and support to the department over the years. They were gifted cards and flowers along with a West College Scotland goody bag of keepsakes, presented by our Student Association Vice Principal, Sandor Nagy and the Level 5 Hairdressing students.  

Ginny said "It's a nice place to come and I look forward to it" while Christine commented "The college is like an extended family to us".

Lecturer Elizabeth Winning said

"Ginny and Christine are so friendly, they encourage the students that may lack confidence, making them feel at ease when working on a live model."

We think they look fabulous!
