Margaret Kelly – Expert Beauty Therapist & Salon Owner
Opened Nu Essence in 2006

After two years training I qualified as a Beauty Therapist in 1995.Over the years I have worked and managed salons in Dublin, Jersey & Australia. Nu Essence is the result of my focused attitude and continued commitment to provide expert beauty treatments and the highest standard of customer service in Dublin. It is my firm belief that continual training & education are the key to providing professional Beauty Treatments. One of the secrets of our success in Nu Essence over the past 7 years has been our Staff, some of whom have been with me since day one.
