DIRECTOR OF HAIR BY MANE
Hairdressing teaches you to have patience.
Try to constantly improve your work while taking in what’s going on around you, rather than worrying about the competition and you will always be busy.
You need to have a sense of your own ability -
I walked away from hair colour for seven years because I felt my work wasn’t good enough. It turns out the person I wanted to teach me was actually inside myself, but I’m naturally lazy so I had to dig deep!
I hated the Celtic Tiger -
It destroyed so much. I used to have people who didn’t like my style of work come to me just because I was one of the “go-to” colourists.
You only have one real boss in this job, and that’s the client. But, not a lot of stylists seem to take responsibility for colour these days. They ask the client what they want and give it to them, regardless of whether or not it suits them
Mane Hair Salon
For those of you plagued by the awful but ubiquitous phenomenon that is stripey packet highlights, a trip to Mane’s lofty Georgian salon with owner Andrew Dunne will inevitably change your entire outlook on what a salon experience should be. Irish Colour Ambassador for Wella, Dunne’s key philosophy is simple, yet one that’s considerably overlooked:
”A woman should always wear the hair, never the other way around.”
A colour assesment takes into account skin tone, eyes, face shape, and your personal style, ensuring that your new style will look good every day. Dunne uses Illumina - the latest breakthrough in permanent colour to come from Wella Professionals that uses Microlight technology, boasting up to 70% more light reflection and 100% coverage of greys. Groundbreaking as it is, we credit the results to the hand painting technique of the colourist. The result? Bespoke hair that glimmers and gleams with every catch of the light.
