Sinead Monaghan

Owner and Manager.

Sinead Monaghan (nee Stapleton) is owner and Manager of Ischia, now in business since 2004. Sinead herself a qualified Beauty Therapist and Wig Specialist, born and reared in Navan, built up her managerial experience working in the corporate sector in Sales and Marketing, polishing the tools that would later prove extremely beneficial to her in managing the team at Ischia Hair, Beauty & Wig Salon.

In 2013 Sinead extended the salon to include a Wig Fitting Service – as a direct result of many of the their clients looking for advice in this area. Sinead can now offer this local service for people who are suffering from HAIR THINNING, ALOPECIA, or going through CHEMOTHERAPY.

Sinead is very proud of the business she has built up and the team at Ischia. She's had many proud moments over the years, from organising successful charity events, winning Best Hair Salon in 2013, achieving Excellence Award in Beauty Salon.... the future plan for 'Ischia Hair, Beauty and Wig Salon' is to keep it as one of the top salons in Ireland!
