Tell us about yourselves?
Emily McDonald qualified as a beauty and skin therapist in Galligans Beauty college in 2001 (22 years ago) she worked and managed in many Beauty salons around Dublin and opened a purpose built salon called ‘Pritti nails and beauty’ at her house in Maynooth in 2007. She gained lots of loyal clients that are still clients to this day.
