Hairdresser to the stars of the theatre and small screen, Matthew Keating has joined the team at Neeba Hair & Beauty in Newbridge, where he is now a Senior Stylist, specialising in cutting, colour and gents styling.   Matthew brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the salon as he has worked in the industry for more than 25 years. Having learned his trade at Valentino in Dublin, his career has taken him all over Ireland where he successfully ran salons throughout the country for a major hair dressing chain before going on to run his own salon in Kildare Town.

Matthew has also worked his magic on the hair of several well-known RTE actors, The Rose of Tralee and was the hairdresser of choice for the Gaiety Theatre over the years. “I’ve been busy over the last 13 years running my own businesses and looking after salons all over the country, but going to Neeba Hair & Beauty has given me the chance to get back to doing what I love, and that is spending most of my day behind the chair,” said Matthew. “I just wanted to get back to what I love doing and that is actually doing hair rather than managing or running a salon, I really enjoy being hands on and all the creativity that comes with hairdressing.”

“I’ve always been incredibly passionate about hairdressing, and I’ve felt that it is more of a vocation for me rather than a career. When you enjoy doing your job as much as I enjoy doing mine, it’s very easy to come into work in the morning. I’m delighted to have joined the team here in Neeba Hair & Beauty Salon, and they have been extremely welcoming since I came in.”

Matthew has a flair for colour melting and colour cutting, but he has a rounded expertise that ensures he can cater for almost any request from a client. Niamh Gaynor, co-owner of Neeba Hair & Beauty Salon, has been delighted with how quickly Matthew has settled into his new job. “Matthew has been great since he came on board with us and we’re delighted to have him here as part of our team,” said Niamh. Barbara Lumsden, co-owner of Neeba added, “He is such a talented stylist and has brought great experience with him following a distinguished career in the industry. Our clients who have had their hair done by Matthew have been really impressed by him, and he is proving to be a very popular addition to the team.”
