A young mother of two, Emily O’ Callaghan, has recently purchased and set up her own beauty salon as The Glam Rooms, taking along Breda Keane, formerly of Fingers and Faces Ennis, as an employee. Both women are looking to take the beauty treatment field by storm.
With the business located in Sixmilebridge, Emily is hoping to extend a range of safely operated services to local customers in spite of Covid-19. The Glam Rooms is a one stop shop for waxing, makeup, nails and tans, offering a hairdressing service for weddings and a multitude of other special occasions.
A young mother to two boys aged seven and four, Emily is highly adept as a make-up artist and beautician, having worked for MAC and completed her studies at Mrs. Makeup in Dublin. The Glam Rooms use a range of products, including Lycon wax, Skinician facials, Semliac and The Manicure Company for nails and BPerfect spray tan.
A special launch hosted by Emily for the Glam Rooms was attended by family and friends. Emily put a hopeful eye to the future, where the highly experienced pair are vying for success in spite of Covid-19, with the salon adhering to strict government guidelines.
Safety, sanitisation and customer satisfaction are top priorities at The Glam Rooms, Emily confesses, “Beauty salons have traditionally used masks and would always have been very clean, sterilising equipment and washing our hands very often”.
“We are well used to protecting ourselves and our customers. We just have to be more careful during the pandemic. We are extremely busy with communions and confirmations and we hope to continue to offer a value service to our customers. It’s lovely to have a spray tan or your makeup done or have a shellac manicure. It makes us feel better about ourselves and we could all do with a little lift from time to time, especially at the moment. We hope to offer some very exciting packages to our customers, old and new, and look forward to welcoming people into the Glam Rooms in Sixmilebridge. Treat yourself. You deserve it,” Emily commented.
