The hair and beauty of Rossie

Our Hair and Beauty Salon has increased opportunities for young people in and out of Rossie. We work with Dundee and Angus College, who approached us and kindly offered salon treatments, including haircuts, make-up and nail-care, for our young people free of charge! Our young people were delighted at the prospect of working with the college students, which lead to building our own salon at Rossie.

Who we help

Our partnership with Rossie has grown from a small conversation in the corridor to a successful Hair & Beauty project that now benefits and adds real value to our students and the young residents. It is an absolute pleasure to work with Rossie staff on this project; their care and compassion for the young people is evident and very inspiring!
