(Photograph) - A new hairdressing salon opened in Aberdeen last week - at Northfield Academy, believed to be the first in Scotland to train third-year girls in cutting, styling and perming. An Aberdeen College lecturer will teach hairdressing and beauty therapy to 10 girls who will spend two half days a week working towards a Level 2 qualification, a route into the industry. The course is just one of several in the secondary that shows the growing curriculum flexibility across the country
