Customer Testimonials

 I cannot recommend this hair salon enough! Been going to it since I was 12 and even when I moved to Cork I would come back to get my hair done here. The ladies are so professional, really clued in on the latest techniques, what would suit your hair, how to take care of it. They're just magicians! I've never left the place unsatisfied! However the main thing I'd say about this place that you just can't get anywhere else is the atmosphere, there's a real community feel here and that's lead by Lorraine who always does her best for her clients and customers, making them feel welcomed and well looked after! 


Between the craic in the salon, the amazing services and the lovely people working here you can't go wrong with OB1!

 Delighted with the service I got at OB1. I went in unhappy with the cut in my hair as i didn’t have much length & it was full layers that weren’t for me but Yvonne completely transformed it. I got extensions for the first time, the colour & blend is amazing. My hair is so full and bright now. OB1 is such a caring, friendly environment & I’m definitely going to be a regular client! 

Kelly Rennick

 OB1 did NOT disappoint! The care and professionalism of this salon is 5 stars. Lorraine makes sure it’s run like a Swiss clock.

Great Covid protocol from the minute you enter the premises and the personal, disposable pack each of its customers get ensures you and staff are protected.

Best colour and cut I’ve got in years - Alannah worked her magic and very pleased with the results. 

MT Charpe

 Love coming here! You’re always guaranteed to get a warm welcome and every single one of the girls who work there are so lovely. There’s always a nice atmosphere in the salon and nothing is ever a hassle, especially when you need to change around your appointment. Always look forward to coming back!

Elizabeth Murphy

 It was my first appointment in the salon as I recently moved to the area. There was a great atmosphere in the salon, my appointment was on-time, Yvonne did a fantastic job on my hair, and Lorraine was very welcoming and full of fun. Looking forward to my next visit and making OB1 my local hair salon. 

Gillian Ryan

 I’m beyond impressed with ob1 salon. From the second I walked in the door the girls were so friendly and kind to me. I got their “smoothening” treatment done, and I couldn’t be happier with the results, the girls in ob1 transformed my hair from a frizzy mess that I have dealt with for years to a head full of sleek and smooth hair that I love. 

Thank you all so much for your knowledge and skill and I look forward to seeing you all again.

 Got my hair done in OB1 this morning and I can’t believe the results the girls in the salon we’re so friendly and so careful with my damaged hair. I’m so picky and they couldn’t have done a better job the colour and treatment is amazing. Would definitely recommend.

 Lorraine and the team offer a fantastic service to their clients. I have been using this salon for some years now and never fail to be amazed at how they look after my hair. Thank you ladies and keep up the good work.

 I left smiling as usual! I have been going to OB-1 for the last 2 years having changed from a larger chain salon and I haven't once regretted the change. The staff are all friendly, chatty and eager to make sure you are comfortable. There are no unnecessarily long waiting periods even when getting a colour (in my previous salon I thought they had forgotten about me!). I am always delighted with the cut and colour every time. I have had Carol the last couple of times and she is brilliant. She turned my vague mumbles of what I thought I wanted done with my hair into a cut I am delighted with. She took the time to go through styles on her phone with me and how they could be tailored to my hair and face shape. She also took note that I am not one for hours of styling and products (quick blow dry dashing to work from the gym!) and made sure that the cut would be easy to keep and wear up or down with minimal effort. I am very happy with the salon and recommend to all.

 Loved being in the salon today and love my hair. I will definitely be back! 

Eimear Duggan

 We went to OB-1 for a wedding hair trial last week. Two very different women with very different hair and styles.

The staff were so friendly and really listened to what we wanted and understood right away.

We both absolutely loved it and it stayed put all night! We feel we are in very safe hands for the wedding now and are very much looking forward to popping in again
