Borders College

Style your way forward with a career in hairdressing

Ross Mair is currently studying Hairdressing at Borders College and is passionate about doing what he loves best. Aged 18 and from Greenlaw, he became interested in the industry at a young age and decided to enrol on the Schools Academy Hairdressing programme while at school.
 
This led to a full-time placement at the College and Ross has never looked back. A firm believer in equality, he knows all too well the importance of gender balance within any industry and the benefits this can bring to businesses.
 
Ross has a passion for modern trends and would like to one day work in a salon. Excited about finishing his studies and pursuing his career, he’s already getting a taste of the real world of work through a work placement at the Vanity Lounge in Galashiels.
 
His advice to any males thinking of studying Hairdressing is: “If you feel inspired and passionate about it, then go for it. Everyone is equal and you’ll be treated no different. I get loads of support from my female colleagues and have thoroughly enjoyed my time at College”
