From brow magicians with a hard-to-find salon door to balayage masters down that secret alleyway, Dublin has a wealth of hidden beauty gems - you’ve just got to know where to look.
Finding a salon – whether it be hair, nails or tan - is a lot like dating. You have to play the field a bit, get together a couple of times, weigh your options, and ultimately decide whether they're worth settling down for. It's exhausting, but once you meet the one, there's no turning back.

BLOW SALON, HENRY STREET
Based inside the Dunnes Stores on Henry Street, Blow may seem more “convenient” and “handy” than perfect for relaxing, but Treatwell reviews prove otherwise. One customer experienced the “best head massage after a very long and stressful day”. No wonder it’s Top Rated. Book in with them here.
Firenze Clinica, Dundrum
Despite being a stone’s throw from Dundrum Shopping Centre, Firenza Clinica has a distinctively quaint feel. Set inside a stonewalled abode, it’s “location and the internal setting is ideal cosy”. One customer even described it as “a little oasis for the mind, body and soul”. Need we say more? Book in with them here.
No.13 Beauty House, Temple Bar
Situated right in the centre of Temple Bar (but hidden upstairs), No.13 Beauty House’s “warm and welcoming” atmosphere is the place to escape the bustle. The Top Rated salon has earnt itself an incredibly loyal customer base, with one customer stating “it is my favourite place in the whole world. I always leave the place looking so glam and smiling ear to ear”. Sign us up. Book in with them here.
