Cutting Time based on the Old Bawn Road in Tallaght has seen lots of hair styles come and go. Owner Mary Fleming said after two decades she has seen many things change from the products to the techniques back when Tallaght was a very different place. Mary originally from Old Bawn started hairdressing over 35 years ago before opening her first salon in Tallaght Village 26 years ago, before moving to her current premises on the Old Bawn Road where she has been trading successfully for the last 21 years, even through the recession.
Mary’s daughter, Kellie Lovett, is carrying on the tradition as a junior hair stylist. “I’m very proud of my mother, she started this business 26 years ago and has grown it from strength to strength” says Kellie.
Mary told us she is thrilled to be marking an important milestone for her business, particularly as she started Cutting Time out of a genuine passion for the industry. “I have always had a natural talent and love of hair” she said. “It was a big move to open my business at such a young age but thankfully I have never looked back. I would just like to thank all of our clientele for 21 wonderful years here in Old Bawn. It is because of their support and loyalty over the years that Cutting Time has been so successful.”
Would you believe I still have my first customer coming to me from when I started as a hair stylist?
“Our niché is affordability in a very relaxed atmosphere” says Mary. “Would you believe I still have my first customer coming to me from when I started as a hair stylist?”
After spending twenty minutes mingling with the crowd that turned out to help celebrate the big day you could tell that Mary is much loved by her customers. Among the guests, young and old, was Bridie Sweeney who told us “I have been coming here all my life, I would never go anywhere else. Mary and her team provide an excellent service and she is a credit to the community”
