This Irish salon is a thriving and state of the art.
On March 17, all Americans are a little bit Irish. Every day, the folks at The Hair, Nail & Beauty Rooms in Dublin are more than a bit American. Judging by beauty therapist Catherine Trebble’s 8-year-old salon — located in a busy, central shopping area — the Irish salon industry is thriving and state-of-theart. In fact, two years ago, Trebble and her partner reduced the hair area to accommodate the growing demand for nails and esthetics.
See if this sounds familiar: At The Hair, Nail & Beauty Rooms, the typical nail client is a professional woman getting nail extensions (Backscratchers’ Extreme or Star’s gels) at about $60 for a full set. So what is distinctly Irish about the salon? “The staff and most of the clients,” says Trebble with a laugh.
