Meet The Team

Christina Redmond

I started my hair dressing journey at the age of 21, having always been passionate about all things hair from a young age I knew it was the right path for me.
I’ve had some amazing opportunities throughout the years including featuring on the tv show Xpose, this gave me a chance to style hair for a catwalk model and I spoke about what products and techniques I had used. I also worked on a charity calendar for Pieta house, this involved styling some of Ireland’s top female athletes. Other ventures included styling hair for the cover of the 90th addition of Hot Press magazine and styling tv presenter Elaine Crowley for a photo shoot!
I have completed many courses including Train the Trainer with Wella Professional.
I started working at Elysian in 2018, working Saturdays only but it didn’t take long for me to start working full time. Since starting at Elysian my passion for education has grown and I hope to teach more in the future.

Karen Daly

Hi my name is Karen Daly and I have worked in the beauty industry for over 14yrs. I started my journey as a nail technician and discovered my love for all things nails but this wasn’t enough so I entered into competitions over the years which I enjoyed and then decided to train as a nail educator which took me over to Holland a couple of times to retrain and I fell in love with the education side of beauty. In 2013 trained as a sugarist with the leading brand across the the world Alexandria Professional body sugaring which amazed me how a hair removal method could actually change people’s lives by changing there skin for the better so I trained as a sugaring educator because of my love for the brand and last year became a Master Educator over in Buffalo head office. I love to educate people and salons on all the different aspects of sugaring as it’s truly an amazing experience and so much less painful but has so many amazing benefits from skin to hair permanently removed.

I graduated from school after turning 17 and thats when i started my apprenticeship.

Lauren Byrne

Im Lauren. I started my career in hairdressing at the young age of 15. I have trained with many products such as Matrix & Wella to name a few. I had my two girls and went back to work in a salon quite quickly when i realised i wanted to be at home with them. After 2 years i decided i needed to get back out doing what i loved. From there i went on to do 3 months refresher in the Galligan college. I then went on to work in Easilocks where there i furthered my training in hair extensions & fell in love all over again. Im currently working in Elysian just over 2 years & from the staff to the products & atmosphere i feel right at home. Having a variety of different products to work with in Elysian such as Alphaparf, Moroccan oil & Elite extensions, makes any clients hair a dream to do. I plan to further my training over the years by getting my hands onto any course available to me.
