Hi I’m Sian (She – In!)
I’ve been a hairstylist for over 15 years now (eeek!) and I love hair! I can’t imagine doing anything else. I left school and headed for Art College, thinking I’d better give college a shot! Although I enjoyed the student life, I knew – when practicing plaits on my friends hair in lectures – hairdressing was where my true passion was. I made the move & I’ve never looked back.
Knowing I wanted to be with the best in the business I finished my training in Toni&Guy. Working my way up from stylist to style director and spending time in the Dublin and Sydney branches I gained invaluable experience in the hairdressing industry. Cutting, styling & teaching both in and out of the salon & working with and learning from some of the Ireland & the UK’s leading stylists was amazing. While I enjoyed fashion and television work I found my personal love was working with brides.
Helping a bride to get ready on her wedding day is so special – it’s such a privilege to be part of the big day. I find myself feeling genuinely excited every time I have to put on a veil or see a bride in her dress!
I’ve been out of the salon working exclusively with brides for 5 years now and I’m loving it. I was delighted and amazed to have won the “Mrs2be” Brides Choice Award for Best Wedding Hairstylist and also the Bash Magazine Best Bridal Hairstylist Award.
My latest venture is UPSTYLE ACADEMY! I will be running courses for industry professionals in Harpers salon Glasthule from Jan 2017. See my social media for the latest updates.
Have a peek at my gallery and I’d love to hear from you for your big day …
