Emma Murphy

Owner, Stylist & Milliner

I wanted to create a place where you felt you can relax and unwind and for me that is a home with a healthy environment, family and a nice big cup of tea or glass of wine (depending on your mood).

Welcome, My name is Emma. I am the Salon owner, Creative director and Milliner here at Locks & Lace. My passions are work, family and just about everything creative in between. I love all aspects of my work but most of all I just love meeting people. Whether you’ve been a client from Strandhill for the last 13 years or if you’ve just come in for your first cut and blow-dry, I treat everyone as I would an old friend. So it doesn’t matter if you’re coming in to get your hair styled or getting fitted for a new hat, I just enjoy making people feel happy by making them look amazing.

I balance my life between work and home as I love both equally as much. When I think of home, I think of feeling safe and cosy with a warm fuzzy sensation you get when you’re content. With this in mind, I just had to create a wee haven that my clients and staff felt at ease in and reminded them of their own home. Knowing they are in the best environment possible, I’m positive everyone will leave with more than a great hair style, hand crafted hat or just a full day’s work. I want everyone to leave feeling good about themselves and feel like they can be an inspiration to others.

If I manage this I am happy.

Rachel Niland

Hair Stylist

Hi my name is Rachel and I’ve recently joined the team here at Locks & Lace. With over 8 years in the industry, I’ve been lucky to work with and learn from some amazingly talented people. However, I feel I’ve never settled in somewhere so quickly before and that is all down to how welcoming Emma and the staff have been.

I enjoy all aspects of hairstyling but what I really love is being creative. I keep up to date on current trends and enjoy the transition between seasons to keep the client in fashion. I’m known for creating natural soft balyage, beautiful bouncy blowdries, braids and creative up-styles, although I do really enjoy getting my scissors out too for both ladies and gents. I’m a friendly and approachable person and I love getting to know new people and welcoming returning clients.

Lynette Moran

Hair Stylist

Hi my name is Lynnette and I’m an award winning stylist with over 15 years experience within the hairstyling industry. I’ve been part of the Locks & Lace team for the last 8 months and can’t express how much I love being part of such an inspiring and creative salon. I’m a happy person with a real passion for all aspects of hairdressing especially colouring and being creative. I love making my clients look and feel amazing, whether it’s a simple cut and blow-dry or a complete restyle. I’ve also recently graduated as a platinum hair extension technician, so I can create looks for people that they would never have though possible.

I love what I do and if I can make my clients look and feel great then that makes me feel great.
