What do you love about what you do?

“My favourite part of my job is the feeling you get when you see a clients confidence growing because they love their hair. Making someone feel beautiful on the inside because of what they see on the outside is amazing.”

Niav

CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Niav began her hairdressing journey working on the set of the Tudors in Ardmore Studios when she was 18. It was here she found her flare for hair. She then went on to train professionally. Since then she has continued to work in almost every aspect of the hair industry. From bridal work, to various shoots with several magazine covers and to work on a list of programmes.

What do you love about what you do?

“ The best part of my work is getting to be creative everyday. I love when I have to put a lot of work and effort into planning and consulting with the client about what we are going to do. Then to see the creation come together and the happy client and the end is the feeling! ”

Aoife

CREATIVE STYLIST

Aoife was born into hairdressing, coming from a family of hairstylists, her love for it grew at an early age.

She started in Home of Hair in June 2021 and has gone from strength to strength.

Her flair for color and high standard of customer service has made her very popular very quickly with our salon guests.

Not only is she up to date on all the current color and cutting trends, Aoife also qualified last year in removal and application of Beauty works hair extensions.

Mairead

 CREATIVE STYLIST

(Hollywood  came calling!! Mairead is currently working on a movie doing all things hair! She will be returning to the salon in a few months filled with lots of new hair knowledge and hopefully some A list gossip from the set!)

After discovering hairdressing at at young age, Mairead worked her way through her training all while finishing school, completing a degree in college in irish dancing,

With all this under her belt she went travelling and worked her way around Canada and Australia, gaining a huge amount of experience in all different areas of hairdressing.

Mairead returned home last year to embark on a new path…. being a mom!

After making the decision to return to work, Home of Hair was where she wanted to be! A busy lady , Mairead balances motherhood, irish dancing, home of hair and working on the movies doing hair!

Sinead

 CREATIVE STYLIST

Sinead is our sparkly new stylist, an absloute all rounder, Sinead brings her natural talent and experience to our team.

Qualified in all things color, cutting and extensions, she is vibrant and creative, after training in Peter Mark Killiney, she graduated and styled in their Flag ship salon, Hair and Beauty St. Stephens Green.

After gaining experience in the city centre, sinead moved more local for a better work life balance and has made the move to Home of Hair.

Kim

 CREATIVE STYLIST

Kim is our newest member of Home of Hair, not the youngest though, which much to Sineads disgust, still leaves her as the ‘middle child’!

Kim comes to us from a well known chain of salons, the same in fact as Susan and Sinead!! Having trained and worked there for the past 6 years, Kim wanted a better work life balance which would allow her to both be the best stylist she could be and the best mother she could be too.

Mad about all things hair, her favorite service is up styling but there isn’t anything about about hair she doesn’t like!

Fun Fact; Kim has competed in fantasy hair competitions and has placed top 3 in two of them…. and one of her hair pieces has featured in the movie Deadly Cuts!!!

 

Louise

JUNIOR STYLIST

Louise came to Home of Hair as a part time assistant, a little bit of extra pocket money!

Very quickly she realised she had a love for the Industry and after completing her leaving cert in June, she started her apprenticeship training.

A natural talent, we are so excited to see Louises’s career grow and look forward to helping her along her journey.

Nikki

Salon Coordinator

Nikki applied for the position of hair assistant, after meeting first with lauryn, Louise and Anto, her fate and place in Home of Hair was sealed!

‘She’s one of us’ were Anto’s words….

With her experience and backround in hairdressing, Nikki was over qualified as an assistant but perfect for the role as salon coordinator. Able to jump in where ever she is needed, you never know where you’ll find her!!
