What you as a Learner will get from Joan & Allure Standard.


Joan gets emails and snaps daily on how she is  so Motivational, Inspirational and a role model for  young ladies coming up under her which is so lovely and over whelming to receive.

  • ” I believe in education, training and have a passion for this side of hairdressing, opening to the public so learners gain a real life salon experience.
  •  ” I Love to bring new ideas to Allure and offer learners so much more on a personal level with the introduction of progression meetings, with myself Joan or our manager Leighanne so learners can see where they are weak or strong in areas and get that extra help”
  • I also brought in diary entries ” I believe that writing your feelings both positive and negative down helps you have peace of mind and to see where we are strong and weak”  This is done daily.
  • We like to train learners in a fun, inspiring environment yet on a professional level.
  • I Firmly believe in hands on training and opening to the public hence why salons all over Ireland now call Allure for our learners to walk straight into employment”.
  • I trained and worked hard to get where I am today and firmly believe you cannot become successful over night or without long hours and dedication. You need self belief, passion and hard work.
  • As a Principal I feel it is important to be hands on with  learners with motivational talks, seminars, assessments, up skilling & educating them directly. I am very much involved in the day to day running of each class, whether it’s with a hands on approach or behind the scenes. IMG_6947
  • I  hand pick our tutors ensuring only the best are training our learners. I like to hire in leading artists in Ireland for our classes also. Some big names like Karen O Meara Mua, Michelle Fox MUA, Gemma Crowley MUA, Aimee Connolly MUA, James Wallace an international hair & make up artist. I love for all our staff and team to up skill in all areas of the trade.
  • We could have settled for a first floor or small college unit in Tullamore but I felt our learners deserve high end facilities, space, Free parking and lots more to aid their training.
  • I hold Free seminars for all learners to Allure in our very own seminar room. I now offer Motivational talks, setting up your own business classes, free of charge for our learners.
  • We started running our own hair, make up, beauty & fashion seminars open to the public.


I Hope you enjoy reading through our website and we look forward to welcoming you to Allure as a learner, a staff member or a client.

Much Love

Joan x
