Sean Taaffe Hair Academy opens for business

You are here

There were certainly no first-day nerves for the students at the Sean Taaffe Hair Academy by Aisling Madigan, which opened its doors this week.

The enthusiastic students are the very first class to be inducted into the academy, which is located alongside the multi award-winning Sean Taaffe Hair & Beauty salon in The Courtyard, Lewis Road, Killarney.

The first of its kind in the region, the Sean Taaffe Hair Academy by Aisling Madigan is now enrolling for full-time, part-time, evening and refresher courses.

As well as being internationally accredited by three of the top certification bodies in the industry, students enrolling in the academy will benefit from the enormous wealth of experience that the Sean Taaffe Group has amassed over the years. It has an impeccable track record, is a nationally renowned brand being the only Kerry salon to be a Finalist in the Irish Hairdressing Awards five years in a row, and is voted one of U Magazine’s top ten salons in the country.

Aisling Madigan of the Sean Taaffe Hair & Beauty Group is co-founder, director and head tutor at the academy. Having qualified as a stylist in 2002, Aisling joined the Sean Taaffe Group in 2006. She has excelled in her career as a hairdresser and quickly moved up the ranks from being a stylist to becoming a stylist director.

Commenting on the opening of the new academy, Aisling said,

Training has always been a huge part of the Sean Taaffe Group ethos, so it was a natural progression for us to launch a dedicated training academy here in Killarney. There are very few options when it comes to training colleges here in the Kerry region and none who can offer the pupil/teacher ratio we provide. We’re committed to offering students the best training possible to help them progress in their careers and we’re really looking forward to working with all of our new trainee stylists.
