With multiple colour course certificates to her name, Goldirocks was a natural fit and she became part of the team in May 2017. Taylor’s friendly approach and ability to really listen to our clients has won the trust of many fans of bright hair in Cork, and has continued to master vivid colour blends.

She is continuing her training with Goldirocks and has a natural talent, well above her official level of hairdressing.
