Beyond Beauty Team


I opened the doors of my first salon on the 6th of December 2002. Only 19 years of age my friends thought I was crazy!! But thankfully my amazing parents knew that I was ready and gave me all the encouragement and support that I needed. We have moved premises twice since then but in April 2009 we found our forever home in the heart of Claregalway Village.

When I opened the Salon, I didn’t want to just do eyebrows, nails and make-up! (although I adore doing these treatments to this day!!) I wanted to further my skills and bring advanced treatments to my clients. I wanted to bring something new to Galway!

So, in 2007 I was the first clinic in Galway to introduce ‘Candela GentleLase’ Medical Grade Laser. I had trialled the treatment myself in Dublin so knew how amazing it was! But little did I know that this was the treatment that would put us on the map. We adore Laser but its popularity through the years has allowed me to continually improve the salon year after year bringing the latest most innovative treatments to my clients.

My passions lie in anything where I see a before and after!! Which thankfully for me is pretty much every treatment that I do! But I absolutely love skin. When a client lies on my facial bed whether it be a relaxing facial treatment, or a more advanced treatment like photo-rejuventation, radio frequency or nano fractional skin resurfacing! When I get to see the results of that treatment whether it be when they sit up on the bed that day, or in a few weeks when skin heals, it literally warms my heart ! to be able to make my clients feel good.

The same goes for Laser Hair Removal. I have been doing Laser for a very long time and I pride myself in being a fountain of knowledge when it comes to this treatment. But when I have a client who has suffered years of dealing with unwanted hair growth and I know the results I can achieve for them…. How can you not love your job!!

Karen on Aoife: Aoife joined the BB team in September 2018. I had held so many interviews as I was looking for someone who could add something extra to BB!! I was due my first baby the end of October and needed to find the perfect person to strengthen the team and along came Aoife! After spending a few weeks working alongside Aoife, I immediately knew she would thrive at BB. Aoife is loved by all her clients and has been a wonderful addition to the team.

In Aoife I found a real trooper all always ready to take on a challenge. Her chatty down to earth personality makes her a favourite to so many clients and I feel incredibly lucky to have her as a big part of the team at BB. Aoife is always there to give a helping hand and is a mighty woman for the DIY!!! We would be lost without her.

Although Aoife came to us with lots of experience, she has advanced her skills so much and has trained in all of our advanced skin treatments which she loves doing! Of course, like all of our therapists Aoife is a whizz with Laser and bursting with knowledge!

What Aoife has to say: In 2018 I was very fortunate to be asked to join the team at Beyond Beauty. My qualifications have given me lots of experience in all areas of Beauty, but I especially love Yumi Lashes, HD Brows, Nails, Laser Hair Removal & Radio Frequency Skin Tightening.

Aoife on BB : It is great to work in a salon which values the continuous professional development of its staff, which enables us to offer the most up to date treatments to our clients at the highest standard.

It is so lovely to be a part of a warm friendly team and to have such a wonderful clientele coming in and out of the BB doors every day.
