Meet The Team

Effie Greaves

I am the proud owner of the salon. My interest in beauty started at the age of 14. I remember having a strong passion for nails, nail art, threading, waxing and skin (I love popping blackheads). I always liked working with people in customer care and wanted to run my own business.

I started my qualification journey in 2008 with nails and waxing and worked my way up to a fully qualified beauty therapist in 2016. I have ITAC and BABTAC qualifications. I am a Dermalogica skin expert and also trained in micro-needling. My passion grew strongly in skincare however, I love performing all the treatments.

I love my job, seeing my clients coming into the salon, having a chat and enjoying their skin results, lashes, nails or eyebrows treatment gives me the best feeling. I am forever grateful for your support and for welcoming me into your community. It means the world.

I am a mum to 2 gorgeous children and enjoy the nature walks, music and the little things in life.

Hivi Alvarado

I’ve been lash tech for a year, but I discovered a passion in beauty that I didn’t know I could feel for a job.
I started working in eyelashes in Chile, my country of origin, and now I am in Ireland trying to complement my experience of knowing new cultures and learning a new language with what I love the most.

Lexy Jakab

I’m living in Ireland for 5 years originally from Hungary. 
One of my passion is baking and the other is nail art.. that’s why I became a nail tech. 

I love my job here at Effies and enjoy working in a team. I really love to watch anime, play on PS and love to go outdoors in the nature with my Hubby in my free time .
