When it comes to men and hairdressers, we women are always searching for The One -- the person or the hairdresser who understands you/your hair like no one else.
It's a bit like dating -- you need to try out a few before you can commit to a long-term hair affair.
My glamorous mother-in-law, Vivianne -- a redhead like Julianne Moore, left -- trusts few with her tresses. I'm afraid to recommend someone I know in case she goes and hates it.
On a recent trip to Clifden, where Vivianne has a house, she told me she had found The One -- Joanna Galloway, from the Hair Gallery on Bridge Street.
"Beautiful hair that looks natural is what Joanna is known for," she told me.
"Joanna does hair colour that is like the colour you had as a child. She's the best around and knows how to get gorgeous colour without damage."
I love a personal recommendation, especially from a tough critic. I am sure you will agree that, once you have found The One, you don't hesitate to commit.
