If you are from Cork, or in fact Ireland, you have probably heard of superstar hair stylist Sabrina Hill of Kopper Hair Studio in Glanmire. This beautiful lady is my third Boss Lady that I want to introduce to you all.
As well as being my hairdresser, Sabrina is a very close friend of mine. She could literally give away energy and still be the most energetic and vivacious person that I know. She is a pint-sized powerful force of everything that I aspire to be – kind and caring, hardworking and successful, creative and charismatic and on top of all of that – she is a mother to a handsome young man. She also manages to always look so stylish, even for her usual 12 hour work shifts. Who manages to look that good at 7am? Check out her style here on (my personal fave!) Instagram.
Tell everyone a little about yourself?
I’m a 33 year old workaholic. I’m passionate about my work as a hairdresser. It’s my life! I opened my salon Kopper Hair Studio 10 years ago when I was in my early twenties and built it up to a successful business through having an amazing well trained staff. I achieved this with the support of my very patient family and friends…who don’t get to see very much of me! I adore all things fashion and style and I’m very lucky that I can express myself through my work.
Best piece of life/business advice?
“Stop worrying about what other people think of you.”
It’s definitely the best piece of advice I have ever received and I really think it not only relates to life but also to my business too. If people stopped worrying about others they will become successful in their own right. It’s a pity I didn’t get this advice in my teens, I would have had less anxiety!
You start your day with/by.…
I know this sounds corny but on my way to work (I drive 30km each way), I tell myself how lucky I am, how thankful I am that I have such a happy and healthy life. I also wave at every magpie on the way! Then I have a quick coffee and meeting with my salon manager before going on the salon floor.
Before you go to bed, you….
Favourite thing to do on your day off?
Sleep and shop.
Your favourite store?
Topshop. I’m an addict!
Who are your favourite bloggers?
Elle Ferguson is my absolute fashion idol (She is ammmmazzzzzzzzing guys!)
What business woman/brand inspires you?
Norah Casey is a stand out woman for me. She inspires me every time I hear her talk and she is just a lovely person.
Your biggest personal/business achievement to date?
2014 has been a major year for me and I want to take it even further next year! There have been many small highlights along the way in my career, however, winning Best Colourist and Best Salon in this year’s U Magazine Beauty Awards really made me believe that so many others actually believe in what I do.
Sabrina also did my own hair and my bridesmaid’s hair for my wedding in Portugal this year and it was just the best thing to have her with me all day making me laugh constantly.
