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! ”

Danielle

Creative Director

Danielle started hairdressing just over ten years ago, and completed her training at Peter Mark, where she worked as a stylist for over seven years.

As an Apprentice Danielle won the Peter Mark color trophy in 2015

In 2019 Danielle got itchy feet and made the move to Sydney, Australia

It was here that she worked in a beautiful salon that encouraged and facilitated up-skilling, learning about new products and specialised in ‘lived in and bespoke’ coloring techniques.

‘ My favorite thing about hairdressing is working in a salon with a team effort and closeness, it makes it my happy place.

I love seeing a service from start to finish, whether that is color & cut or just styling.

My favorite way to color and style hair is a perfectly imperfect look, loose and textured. I also love bright and beachy blondes!

Can’t forget about the great chats with all the salon guests!’

Kim

 Master 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

Creative 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.

Having completed all her training in all aspects of color and styling, Louise is our first Home of Hair Graduate

A natural talent, Louise’s Client list is growing and her skills are in high demand.

Amy

CREATIVE STYLIST

Amy has just recently joined the Home Of Hair family!

Amy’s hairdressing career started in Petermarks at the age of 16.

Amy came to join us here at Home Of Hair after hearing we began stocking and working very closely with the amazing new products from Davines.

Amy is incredibly talented especially when it comes to Brunettes. Amy is a whizz at adding more dimension to brunette hair and bringing out the rich tones throughout.

“My favourite service to do would be a blonding service like highlights and balayage finished off with a boho /curly blowdry.”

Nikki

Home of Hair Bridal

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

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!!

Nikki’s passion is however, bridal hair… Thus begins our journey into this exciting and special world!

Susie

salon Coordinater

Susie first came to Home of Hair as a salon guest…when we realised how much busier we were getting, we knew we needed help to keep our salon running efficiently.

Susie quickly applied and was a natural… the rest is history!

Both salon guests and the team are all in agreement that we would all be lost with out Susie!
