Queer-Centric Hair Salons in Dublin, Ireland?
August 8, 2021 6:12 AM   Subscribe

I'm an early-40s lesbian tech worker with hair, a stemme/slightly MoC aesthetic, and newly relocated to Dublin. What hair salons might be a good fit for me? I have access to a car so I'm open to any location in the area, and I like to support LGBTQ-owned businesses when I can.

I live in the US and so can't vouch personally for any of these cutters and salons, but in 2018,TENI asked about trans-friendly Irish barbers and hairdressers on Twitter and got a raft of answers! (Note: I've tried to cross check whether the recommended places are still in business, because of COVID and because cutters move around and barbers-hairdressers open and close.)

Harte's Barbers, across from DCU, above the chipper, 6 Pappin Road. "Has always shown me respect and great customer service. Student rate of 10€ as well." (Student rate is now 16€.) @Mike_Drop_95

Sam's Barbers, "Ormond Quay/Dame Court & Green Rooster Temple Bar don’t query your gender!" @lydiabigley

@Cheerfullron recommends Kuts & Kurls Hair Salon, 137 Upper Rathmines Road, Dublin 6.

Cut & Sew (a barber with locations in Lord Edward Street, Wellington Quay, Dundrum, and Rathmines) was recommended by @zoeghughes, who said: "Been getting cuts with @wolfgangbarber in @cutandsewdublin for years now, no issues."

@cutandsewdublin replied to TENI's query: "Everybody is welcome (red heart emoji)."

@wolfgangbarber (Rob Flynn) now has his own barbershop, Faction, 3/4 Crow St., Temple Bar, in the basement of All City. (Faction's Instagram shows some great curly cuts.)

Sahaira, "a unisex, eco friendly, creative, fun, Organic&Mineral colour using hair salon in Fairview dublin 3!" Two recommendations for this one: @Anaemic_Royalty: "... a super trans friendly salon and also if Sarah is there she'll have brought one of her two dogs to work and you can pet it." @Bed_Forever_ concurred, calling the staff "lovely humans."

And one last one:

Sugar Daddy on Exchequer St. "They’re super lovely and Suzanne is very nice,” Anna told GCN's Chris O'Donnell in 2019. (Suzanne Redmond is the manager at Sugar Daddy's City Centre location; they also have a salon in Blackrock.)
