‘Less is more’: Five beauty mantras Irish beauty professionals live by

Are you, like us, obsessed with all things beauty? We asked five businesswomen in the Irish beauty industry to share their beauty mantras, and they didn’t disappoint.

I am definitely a fan of a more natural, quick look; and it definitely comes down to preference, but I don’t think it should be used to absolutely mask yourself.”

“Professional blow-dry every five days, it’ll change your life! Your hair will always be perfectly styled, you’ll save time getting out of the house every morning, and you’ll feel fantastic… As they say, your hair is the crown you never take off.”
