We caught up with Brid Dempsey, stylist at Plush Hair & Beauty and winner of the Great Lengths Ireland 2015/16 Classic Colour award, to find out why she loves Great Lengths…
Tell us a bit more about you, your experience and your salon
I’m 28 years old and I live in Athy, but our salon (Plush Hair & Beauty) is in Carlow. I’ve been hairdressing for 10 years and completed my Masters in Colour in 2011. At the salon we do hair, make up and nails. I also work with Irish Wedding Diary doing up styling for bridal shoots.
What was the inspiration behind your winning Great Lengths Awards entry?
I feel comfortable working with Great Lengths, as the hair is always so easy to work with. Once I had my colour match done I knew the hair enhancements were going to look great, and give me the result I wanted.
How long have you been working with Great Lengths?
I have been applying hair extensions for nine years and I have been working with Great Lengths for nearly four years. I am so glad I did their course – I love the quality of the hair and how they can transform any client.
What is your most requested hair extensions look, and why?
We get all sorts of styles requested, which I love because you get to put a lot of different looks together. The most popular options are colours added to hair – people like that their natural hair doesn’t have to be dyed in order to achieve a new colour style.
