My career in hairdressing started 20 years ago with Peter Mark where I gained a wonderful and knowledgeable training. After seven years I went on to work in other salons in Dublin. My hairdressing then brought me out of Dublin to Dunboyne, Co. Meath, where I worked in a busy salon for three years before buying the business and renaming it The Art of Hair. On selling the business in 2006 I ventured into Freelance Hairdressing and education for Transition year students and I also held the best wedding hairstylist award 2011
In 2006 I was the hair stylists for “Operation Transformation” on the “Gerry Ryan Show” in conjunction with Lisa Fitzpatrick who was the style coach for the contestants. Since then I have hosted the wedding journal style stage in City west working alongside some of the top names in Fashion such as Sonya Lennon Alan Hughes and Lisa Fitzpatrick to name but a few.
I also specialize in all aspects of hairdressing, so, if it’s a colour, perm, Easi-Meche or just simply a blow dry, I cater for everything. During my time as a salon owner I trained in Barcelona with a company called Lakme and went on to be their technical consultant in Ireland. I also worked on the launch to the Irish market of AlterEgo products and was the Irish rep for Dermot Deegan hair and beauty supplies.
There is never a dull moment in my career and I also teach transition Year courses to student as an Introduction to Hairdressing as a career. The girls love these classes and It gives me great pleasure to teach them new skills and make career choices.
With the VEC I do adult education in DIY hairdressing and for the collage of hairdressing I judge their FETEC exam every year
I have worked on many stage shows fashion shoots and corporate events doing hairdressing and wigs and the list is endless of productions but my favourite so far was working on the cast of the Irish premiere of Jane Eyre and Broadway and back in the National Concert Hall.
I love all there is to do with Hairdressing and I hope you enjoy and Love the styles created for you.
