Leading Lifford hairdresser Shannon Dolan is throwing one of the biggest parties of the summer.

Shannon Dolan Hairdressing has come a long way in the past 10 years – growing from a small start-up with just two staff to a bustling hair and beauty business with 17 team members and a 30 capacity salon.

Located on Main Street Lifford, the stunning salon is a go-to place for trend-setting styles, colouring, makeup, nails and beauty treatments.

Owner Shannon tells DW why she has many reasons to celebrate at the birthday bash on Saturday 18th May, which is sure to be a fun and glamorous occasion.

She said: “I opened my business when I was just 18 years old. My business has grown from strength to strength over the years due to hard work from me and my staff.

“I started off with only four chairs and two staff. I then built up my business, expanded my staff, clients and services. I now employ 17 staff and I pride myself for creating local employment for local people.”

The birthday party is an opportunity for Shannon and her team to thank their customers for their loyalty since 2009.

Customers at Shannon Dolan love the care and attention they receive from staff and the consistent quality of care and treatments.

Shannon Dolan Hairdressing has won multiple awards from L’Oréal over the years and remain the only L’Oréal Academy in the north west. They were the only Donegal salon to reach the L’Oréal Colour Trophy semi-finals three years running and were placed in the top 10 final in 2013.

“We are constantly learning and upgrading. My staff are a big part of that progress, they are always hungry for more training and we are always travelling to courses,” Shannon said.

The salon is thriving as a result of this constant advancement. Shannon has since moved to a new, bigger premises and is proud to have staff who have been with her for the entire journey.
