Dubbo College Delroy Campus has opened a new, free initiative never seen before, The Studio Barber Lounge.
The in-school initiative is the brainchild of teacher Simon Petelo and allows students to book hair appointments and have their hair cut free of charge at school during recess and lunch time.
"We had 70 students come into the barbershop for a haircut between June 1, when we officially opened to June 16," Mr Petelo said.
The hair is cut by professional barber, hair stylist and former rugby league Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs player Robert Mafi.
The haircuts are done on school grounds Monday to Friday using professional tools, techniques and sanitising properties.
Some styles include fading for the boys and universal braiding for both males and females with medium to long hair.
The school studio is complete with two salon chairs, a large mirror, an array of styling products and tools and salon aprons to protect students uniforms.
The initiative is one of many Mr Petelo has started for the college's students since starting at the campus.
Another initiative he has started running at Dubbo College Delroy Campus includes Freaky Fridays where he DJs during lunchtimes.
The former local rugby union coach has a passion for creating free opportunities and experiences for his students who may not have access to otherwise and in light of COVID-19.
