Where to Get Ready for a Special Occasion – PREEN Hair & Beauty
It’s not everyday that you can stop into one beauty salon in the heart of Dublin Town and get prepped and primed for a special occasion. But at PREEN Hair & Beauty, you can.
We all love a good pampering, from getting our nails done, our hair did, going on a shopping spree, or getting a massage during a spa day – there are a handful of ways to become 100% relaxed. But sometimes it’s one of the most visual of treatments that can give us those butterflies, enter the makeovers at PREEN.
An award-winning hair and beauty salon led by owner Katherine Sweeney, here you can choose from an array of services including balayage, highlights and full colour changes to the humble hair cut and blow dry. And then the salon also has two beauty artists in-house, Kath Mulhall and Nadine Reid.
Kath Mulhall, Brow Artist
Brows have become such an important aspect for women (and men), because it helps shape the face and enhances makeup. Kath Mulhall is the go-to brow queen at PREEN, working in the downstairs room of the salon, has already been award-nominated and only joined the PREEN team in November 2017. A specialist in threading, Kath can transform brows with absolute ease, from simple touch ups to fully creating semi-permanent brows for those whose brow hairs just won’t grow, (or behave!).
Kath has taught her colleague Nadine the wonder ways of brow creation, meaning the salon has two brow artists in-house in addition to their handful of hair stylists. Both Kath and Nadine work with utter professionalism, ensuring their clients’ comfort from start to finish.
Getting a ‘browover’ is fast yet very precise and results last a couple of weeks, depending on your treatment. If you have not received a threading treatment before, we do recommend them but warn you it will probably give you a slight shock, hurt that little bit and your eyes will tear a little – but these are all natural!
Brow treatments are available from €22, (mens from €15).
Nadine Reid, Makeup Artist
There is something magical about receiving a makeover for a special occasion, and makeup artist Nadine Reid is an absolute pro. Like Kath, Nadine is based in the downstairs rooms of PREEN, with a mini makeup studio, vanity mirror and deep counter that displays all of her makeup products and tools. Having joined the salon in 2016, Nadine makes all of her clients feel at complete ease with her charming and bubbly personality. A well-known makeup artist around the country, Nadine’s clients have included Doireann, Aoibhin & Ailbhe Garrihy, Mary Kennedy, Dominique McMullan, Charleigh Bailey, Niamh Walsh and Nadia Forde, and is often called upon for professional photoshoots.
Nadine’s precision definitely is above standard, as her skills are amazing. She can create full makeup looks for those big occasions, as well as the more natural look for weddings, or whatever it is you’re looking for – Nadine can do it all. She will chat throughout the makeover, and double checks about any allergies whilst explaining products to you.
Makeup applications are available at €50.
Hair Cuts, Blow Dries, Uptyles and Colours
We all know it can take a while to find “your” hair salon as well as the right stylist. At PREEN, clients leave with a positive experience and really feel like a VIP. Katherine Sweeney is not only the owner of the salon but also a brilliant hairstylist and knows exactly how to cut, colour and style. Her excellent team of hair stylists include Director, Master and Senior Stylists, each of whom have a great personality and passion for their trade.
Whether you’re looking for a half-up half-down style with a curled finish, a straight fringed haircut, balayage or highlights, or a complete doover, at PREEN the team will not only help you look and feel your best, but also guide you on what’s best for your hair’s condition using Kevin.Murphy products.
Hair cuts from €40, Blow dries from €30, Upstyles from €55, Colours from €60.
PREEN Hair & Beauty also offer hair & makeup packages that offer a combined selection of either a blow-dry or updo with full make up application.
