Whether you love beauty or you just need the occasional brow wax, Newcastle has it all on offer. Residing in the North certainly has its perks, as pretty much everything has a much smaller price tag compared with the South so treating yourself now and again won’t break the bank. If you thought you’d have to forfeit your full head of highlights or regular acrylic nails in order to fund a weekly shop, think again. Here’s a round up of the best student beauty deals the city has to offer.
LET YOUR HAIR DOWN
David Harvey Hairdressing – 64 St Andrew’s St
This salon is near China Town and has some great student deals. They offer a 20% discount on all services for students available Monday – Friday. Closest halls: The View, Verde and Liberty Plaza.
Boilerhouse – 9 Acorn Road, Jesmond
This is a fairly high-end salon in Jesmond but they have a wide-range of hair and beauty treatments and they also have amazing offers such as 30% off for students on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (does not apply to: blow dries, hair up services, HD Brows and Fake Bake spray tanning). Easily accessed on the metro, as it’s only a few minutes walk away from West Jesmond station.
Collective Hairdressing – 52 Northumberland St
This salon is right in the centre of town making it perfect for a quick trim between lectures. They offer 20% student discount Monday-Wednesday. Other current offers include half price cut & blow dry on your first visit and 50% off colour with a full price cut & blow dry.
THE CLAWS ARE OUT
I. Nails Express – Eldon Square
They offer student discount with a valid student card. This salon is located very close to uni and most halls. It can get busy at times so be prepared to wait, but the service is efficient and high-quality with most services costing under £20 so it’s worth the wait!
Newcastle Hair and Beauty Clinic – 52 Northumberland St
Huge range of treatments and services on offer, including facials and massage. They don’t seem to do any discounts specifically for students but for new customers, there’s a £5 voucher on offer to be used when you spend £25 or more, which can be found online. They also currently have a great offer of any three treatments for £60 (choice of 13 treatments).
Humphrey & Wilson – 124 Heaton Rd
They offer 10% student discount on all treatments on Wednesdays and provide a good range of beauty treatments, as well as hairdressing and lash extensions. A 10-minute car journey or Uber ride away!
CALLING ALL LASH QUEENS
If lashes are your thing, then you’ll already know that they’re not the cheapest beauty trend on the planet but there are definitely student-friendly options on offer in Newcastle. A number of the salons mentioned above offer extensions and a full set of lashes can cost anything between £40 and £88 (depending on what style you’re after). A more purse-friendly option is to book in with a lash technician within the student community who mostly operate on Instagram and offer much cheaper prices for students than salons. A couple worth taking a look at are @lashes_by_catherinee and @millylondonlashes as both offer a student price list.
