Hairdressing has been prominent in my life since I can remember. I started as a Saturday girl at Claude Monte’s in Tralee, at the age of 15. In 2006 there I went on to Denise’s Hair Salon in Rock St., one of Tralee’s most prestigious at the time, where I started training in conjunction with FAS. My apprenticeship there was great. It was hard work but I was dedicated to learn from the best. I received training alongside some of the great stylists and it has taught me the best technique in colouring and cutting.
I also trained with top Irish stylist Stephan Kelly who is infamous for his red carpet and bridal work, as well as, Ciara Lambert known for the ever-popular Great Lengths hair extensions. In 2011 I started working at Cathriona’s Hair Salon, which has given me some great experience as a session stylist, for many editorial photo-shoots and TV work such as TV3’s Ireland AM. I have also been the head stylist at the prestigious Rose of Tralee Fashion Show and SimplyB shoots.
I have had some fantastic opportunities along the way including winning a Fantastic colourist award for two consecutive years in a row giving me a great insight into the world of styling and colouring. Hairdressing for me is a great passion. I enjoy working with all hair types and techniques. I pride myself in being able to listen to all my clients and translate that into many gorgeous styles’.
