Multi-award winning hair stylist, Niamh O’Connor, has earned a reputation as Irish celebrity hair stylist of choice, with an international career spanning more than thirteen years.
Commencing her career with iconic hair salon Toni & Guy in Ireland, she quickly made her mark styling on spectacular and fast-paced hair shows and photo shoots, and over seven years, Niamh’s expertise in hair styling led to her working in other salon branches around Europe and the Middle East. These international opportunities gave her diverse learning experiences, working alongside some of the world’s leading hair educators and experts.
Returning to Ireland, she was headhunted for the role of Technical Manager for Dublin-based salon Preen. During her three year tenure there, she was nominated for Image Magazine’s ‘Colourist of the Year’, an award she won. Niamh’s current role is Creative Director for Hair in prestigious Dublin salon, Callan & Co, owned by celebrity makeup artist, Paula Callan, where she was nominated once again for Image Magazine’s ‘Colourist of the Year’ award.
Niamh was part of the Glam Squad for Amanda Byram on RTE’s ‘Dancing With The Stars’, creating hair styles each week for the stunning host, as well as hair styling on all promotional shoots and personal appearances. Other celebrity clients include Samantha Mumba, Laura Whitmore and Grainne Seoige.
Image, Life, VIP, U and Irish Tatler are just a few of the publications that have featured Niamh’s work.
