Le Beau is the creation of award winning beauty and make-up artist Annette O'Brien. Opening her salon in Ballymakeera Co Cork, Le Beau quickly grew from a one person startup to a thriving business with a professional and dedicated staff.
Annette began her training in Cork where she received a Diploma in Beauty Therapy, Body Therapy and Make-Up Artistry. Annette then went on to work in the prestigious Inchydoney Lodge and Spa and also became senior therapist with Molton Brown in the luxury Killarney Plaza Hotel. Working with a passion and natural ability for beauty therapy Annette soon became an expert in her field and in (2005) felt confident enough to open her own salon. People were quickly drawn by the quality of Annette's work and she soon had an expanding base of customers.
As a trained make-up artist Annette has received high profile recognition as a leader in her field. Working with Mac Pro and Weddings in Kerry, Annette's work has appeared on projects for RTE.ie, Brown Thomas, ITV, James Nesbitt's Ireland, Miss Kerry, Peter Mark, TV3, The Irish Independent, RSVP Magazine, Ireland AM, RTE Guide, Flawless Magazine & with various Model Agencies throughout the country. All this exposure has resulted in an impressive client base.
Nominated for 2012 Make-Up Artist of the year Annette and the busy staff of Le Beau still make time for charity. Annette recently received an award from the Marie Keating Foundation in recognition for the Beauty in Pink days held in Le Beau.
These days Le Beau is a finely tuned enterprise. At its core is the philosophy that through attention to detail and professional expertise, set in a relaxing ambience, you can collaborate with each client to create an individual experience they will cherish.
