Brian O'Driscoll has already offered himself up as a guinea pig for all available beauty treatments, and it looks like some other rugby stars will be dropping by Oslo Beauty for a facial or two in the near future.

Leinster and Irish rugby star Rob Kearney and actress Amy Huberman have teamed up to launch the new beauty franchise based in Ballsbridge.

Speaking to the Herald at the IRUPA Awards at the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, hunky Rob revealed he knows some of the players have indulged their feminine side in the past.

"I know a couple of the lads have had the odd facial or two in their time," he said.

"They are not overly keen to admit to any treatments just yet but the offer is always there."

Although the 30-year-old has yet to follow O'Driscoll's lead, he insisted he will be popping in for some treatments in the near future.

"I haven't tried one just yet but I will in time. A facial will probably be about as much as I will do at the moment."

Oslo is not the first business venture for Rob who also has interests in lifestyle store Industry & Co., recruitment company Mason Alexander and a share in The Bridge 1859 pub.

"I have massively diversified," he said.

"I have not had a huge amount of hands-on work with the business just yet but the team are really good.

"It was a good opportunity. I got Amy on board after that too."

While he may not have got his hands dirty just yet, the Louth man is already thinking about going nationwide.

"The end goal would be to open up a chain of them, maybe have ten across the country in a couple of years time," Rob added.
