The beautiful game of rugby isn't the only thing that Amy Huberman and Rob Kearney have in common - they are both investors in Oslo, a new seven-day-a-week spa and beauty business that's opened on Dublin's Mespil Road.

Funny in front of the cameras, actress Amy has a smart head for business and has enjoyed considerable success with her Bourbon shoes.

The beauty game is Kearney's latest foray on the investment front and while the rugby star might be new to eyelash extensions and body contouring, he already has a broad portfolio of business interests including the lifestyle store Industry & Co, recruitment company Mason Alexander and share in The Bridge 1859 pub.

A spokeswoman for Oslo described Amy's investment in the salon as "a natural fit".

"Amy is very enthusiastic about the business. She was on site during the work and has visited a few times since the salon opened. She knows all about what it takes to be red carpet ready."

The concept of opening multiple salons offering luxury treatments, everyday beauty maintenance and convenience 'pop in' blowdries was developed by businessman Bob Haugh.

Bob started the Travel Department holidays business 20 years ago and the co-founder of Oslo is Clive Kilmurray. Expanding rapidly, they will open Hot Air, their blow dry bar, in 12 weeks followed by a beauty salon in Ranelagh.
