Kuston Kuts, Newton Aycliffe, Co. Durham – is based at the North East Autism Society’s Thornbeck College. The salon opened in December 2013.

The enterprise is run in partnership with East Durham College who have two qualified hair and beauty students working alongside students from Thornbeck College.

Lisa Taylor, Senior Marketing & Promotions Officer for the North East Autism Society explained that trained staff in the salon are available to support clients and take into account any particular needs that the individual may have. This includes booking longer appointment times in which to deal with any problems that may arise or to allow for breaks that may be needed.

Many of the learners who attend the salon have difficultly accessing mainstream hairdressing salons because of the environment.

The salon has been decorated in a calm style and has been ‘stripped back’ with the use of neutral colours. This is to create a more ‘autism friendly’ environment. All clients are treated as individuals and individual needs are taken into account.

The salon is for people of all ages and is open to the general public.
