Weston College’s Principal Dr Paul Phillips will be helping launch a new beauty salon next week.

The business, which is located @ Swet FA Health Club and Spa in Weston-super-Mare, is being officially opened at 11am on September 18 by former star student Emma Rogers.

Budding young entrepreneur, Emma, who won a Gold in the WorldSkills UK Beauty Therapy competition in 2012, comments: “I’m delighted Dr Phillips has been able to make time in his busy schedule to come and help with our ribbon cutting event.

“Without Weston College I wouldn’t be where I am today, especially as I have always struggled with formal education as I have dyslexia.

“A few of my former lecturers are coming too so it’ll be lovely to see them all again.”

Beauty by Emma specialises in skincare treatments such as dermalogica facials and occasion make-up for special events.
