There are six days until Christmas and all we can think right now is SHIT. How did Christmas creep us so fast? How have I not got any of my presents sorted? How do I have three Christmas parties in a row next week and not a thing organised for any of them? How the feck am I going to get everything organised on time?

If you’re in anyway in the same boat as us here in Opsh HQ, you’ll be well able to relate to the above conundrum. Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year but it’s also pretty damn stressful what with all the family/work/friend-related obligations you have.

But we’re here to make that a helluva lot easier for you and break down exactly what needs to be done to get yourself Christmas party ready.

It may cost you an arm and a leg but isn’t Christmas all about treating yo’self?

Yes, yes it is.

Eyebrows – Claudine King

Claudine King Brows on South William St is the master of all brows. With eleven years experience in the beauty industry, this lady knows a thing or two and we have always come out with totally #onfleek brows after a visit to her gorgeous salon.

A brow shape is just €20 and add a tint to that and you’ll be forking out €30 altogether. That’s three cocktails on a night out fyi.

Eyelashes – The Lash Lounge

The Lash Lounge is probably the most recognised salon in the beauty industry. They have always been known as lash experts and owner, Alana Miley has over ten years experience in the industry. 90 minutes of treatment time for 5-6 weeks of full, glam and gorgeous lashes? Em, yes please!

Hair – Oslo Beauty

Oslo Beauty is a relatively newbie to the beauty salon scene here in Dublin but never the less, it has surpassed all our expectations. The gorgeous salon has recently opened Hot Air – a super luxurious blow dry bar with scandi-accents.


Nails – Dylan Bradshaw

Although the Dylan Bradshaw salon is primarily known for it’s hair, they have also opened a gorgeous nail bar in the salon, which totally surpassed our expectations. Think a luxury feel without the price tag, paired with amazing nail technicians. Oh and you’re also offered a glass of prosecco on arrival – you really can’t beat that can you!

The team have also claimed this year’s L’Oréal Colour Trophy award for the fourth time so you deifnitley know you’re in good hands here.
