Congratulations to Marie McBride who opened The Pluck-it Eye and Brow Artistry Bar, in Ballybofey on 9th May. Such a gorgeous salon, beautifully decorated with a classy touch. I went to school with Marie and was delighted to see her open her own business.
She qualified as a Beauty Therapist at The Gallighan School of Beauty in Grafton St, Dublin in 1984.
She returned to Letterkenny where she worked for 2 years before taking flight to America. She then moved back to London opening her first Beauty Salon on the Kilburn, High Road in London for 13 years.
During her time there she worked on many celebrities such as Nina Simone, Danielle Brown, French and Saunders and good old Rod Stewart.
Returning home in 2002 she decided to continue her advanced studies in beauty specialising in: Semi-Permanent Make-up, Eyebrows, Eyeliner, Lip liner and Lip blush, Microdermabrasion, Micro-Needling, Thread Veins and Milia.
In her new Ballybofey salon Marie offers many express treatments such as Waxing, Threading, Tinting, Man sculpturing, two week Gel-Polish and HD Airbase Make-up.
Marie offers a walk in service to her salon with no appointment needed, but if you want Marie an appointment is necessary as she works between two salons.
