Our Sandyford Team
chloe burke - salon coordinator
Chloe has been working in the hair & beauty industry since she was 14, starting off as a “Saturday girl”. After a couple of years, Chloe decided to try a different career path but within a couple of months, she realised that she missed the buzz within the salon & being a part of our team. Chloe then returned as our front of house, a position we have created for her at our Sandyford salon and is excelling in her new role. Chloe is guaranteed to always greet you with a smiling face when you enter the salon and ensure your visit is enjoyable with her naturally positive and friendly personality.
Pollyana O' Keeffe - Senior Stylist
Polly joined our Sandyford team in 2018 with a wealth of experience and passion for her craft. Not only is she passionate about her job, but also her contribution towards making the world a better place. This is why she loves working with Davines and Kevin Murphy in our salon. The ethos behind both of these brands really reflect Polly as a professional. Her absolute favourite product is the “Oi” range from Davines, considering the main ingredients come from the Brazilian amazon (Fairtrade), the country of her birth. Polly collects soft waste plastic from the salon and transforms this into “Eco bricks” to help those in need and minimise our waste on a daily basis. Her expertise lie in creative colour & bespoke blonde’s. Polly is also a fluent Portuguese speaker.
Catherine Corcoran - Senior Stylist
Catherine became part of our Sandyford team in 2017 and joins us with over 13 years’ experience. Catherine loves everything about hairdressing but in particular, the fact that you never stop learning as there is always new techniques to learn and master. Her favourite service would be a soft natural balayage and a sharp structured haircut. Catherine will not let her clients leave the salon without teaching them the importance of homecare as she feels this is just as important as the service itself as this extends well after your visit has finished.
Lauren Priestley - assistant
Lauren is an assistant at our Sandyford branch and is looking forward to building a fantastic career as a hair stylist & colourist. For now, her goal in salon is to make your experience as comfortable as possible at our backwash and also inform you on what homecare you should use at home to help you maintain your look at home. Lauren is always looking for models for our weekly classes so get in touch if you wish to be contacted about classes.
Ania Przezdziak - Senior Beauty Therapist
Ania joined our Sandyford salon in 2017 having decided to relocate to Ireland from her home country of Poland where she learned her trade as a beauty therapist. During her time in Poland, Ania became an expert and tutor for skincare including chemical peels and microdermabrasion. An absolute perfectionist, you will not leave the salon disappointed with any service you book with Ania including a perfect mani or pedi and she will undoubtedly offer you further advice on your beauty & well being, given she is also a well being enthusiast herself. Ania is also a fluent Polish speaker.
Beny Espinoza - Senior Stylist
Beny joined our Sandyford team in 2017 with over 25 years’ experience as a stylist. She originally began her hairdressing career in her home country of Chile, before retraining in Ireland. To be in the industry this long, you have to be incredibly passionate and take great pride in your work, both qualities with which Beny possesses. Although Beny loves to upskill and learn new techniques, her favourite service is a traditional full head of classic highlights. Beny is also a fluent Spanish speaker.
Sarah O' Brian - Junior Stylist
Sarah is in the final stages of her training as a hairstylist and since she began her career in this industry her passion has only grown fonder. Since joining our Sandyford team, Sarah has reached Kerastraight “expert” status. Although, this is her absolute favourite service to do in salon, Sarah also loves to create our clients desired look whilst also working towards getting her clients hair in the most amazing condition ever. No matter what service you have had, you must leave with healthier hair.
Aisling Hayes - Senior Beauty Therapist
Aisling is a hugely accomplished Beauty therapist and joined our Sandyford team as manager with over 10 years’ experience in the industry.
