Hi my name is Valerie
Position: Salon Director/ Level 1
I am the founder of Ikon Hair Cork. My passion for what I do is fuelled by the people I surround myself with every day in the salon….the team and my clients.
I love the difference we can make to people’s lives just by taking the time to sit andlisten to their needs, pain points and desires.
I believe if there’s one thing that’s a game-changer, it’s the consultation, done right itcan change peoples perception of themselves and their hair, this is why we developed our own unique ID Consultation.
I love all aspects of hairdressing but… I am a cutter, I love cutting, all types of hair, short, long, curly, straight!
My love for both have led me into education, I teach bespoke courses on both cutting and consulting.
Favourite Colour: Baby Blue
Star Sign: Aquarius
Book: Soooo many…A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, The Select & The Magic by Rhonda Byrne, Good to Great by Jim Collins, Benedictus by John O Donohue
Hobbies: I love spending time with my family and friends, driving my Harley 883 & Dragstar 650. I support Mellon Educate by travelling to Africa every year to build schools in the townships, each year I work as a plasterer.
Favourite Product: I love Joico’s Violet range as they keep my blonde from going to warm, especially the violet moose mixed with the blonde life veil…amazing !!!!
Top Hair Tip: 1 st thing in the morning …and I mean 1 st thing, dry blowdry your hair before your scalp cools down also brilliant for getting rid of those stubborn cows licks…hey presto great looking hair… not bed head.
