BENDIGO TAFE's hair and beauty students are looking for new clients in the region.
The students are completing their hair, beauty, and barbering courses in their temporary Lotus Hair and Beauty salon facilities at the TAFE's Charleston Road campus.
The students will relocate back to a new training precinct at the Bendigo city campus in mid-2021. The city campus is currently undergoing a $60 million redevelopment.
The students offer their services at training prices, and all work is carried out under the guidance of educators in a fully functioning salon environment.

Bendigo TAFE's executive director of studies Janelle Arena said community support for the training salon was integral.
"Our local community has, for many years now, supported our students as clients at Lotus Hair and Beauty Salon," Ms Arena said.
"This has given students invaluable experience in interacting with real-world clients and honing their skills in providing various treatments, all under supervision from our industry-experienced educators.
"We look forward to this support at our temporary salon at the Charleston Road campus, which features the full range of industry-standard equipment and products within a professional salon environment."
The students' Lotus Hairdressing and Barbering salon offers services including hair colours, cuts, men's fades, and face shaves.
The Lotus Beauty salon offers professional pampering services like waxing, manicures, massage, and facial treatments.
The salon is open from 9am to 3.30pm from July until December. More information can be found at bendigotafe.edu.au/Students/facilities/Pages/Lotus-Hair-and-Beauty.aspx
