ANDREW Barton, known as the ‘people’s hairdresser’, visits City and Islington College to meet with students and officially open its new Oasis salon.

Mr Barton, who appears on UK’s hit makeover show ‘10 Years Younger’ and has worked with celebrities such as Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue, found time to show off his hairdressing skills by cutting a student’s hair.

The new salon is based in the Malborough Building in Holloway Road, Holloway.

Mr Barton said: “It is very close to the environment that students will be working in when they leave college.”

Ashley Davies, salon technician at Oasis, said: “I’m delighted Andrew opened the salon - he is second to none in the hairdressing industry.”
