Carla Rose McQuillan is co-founder of THE.SPACE in Dublin, a salon which champions an enlightened approach to business, encouraging their team to work with presence and mindfulness allowing creative contribution to flow and be utilised to its full potential.

Alongside the salon business, Carla Rose travels around Ireland as a session stylist and colour educator meaning she has the upper hand on the newest technologies. She’s a regular on Xposé and called upon to style for features in all the Irish glossy magazines.

Having attained a wealth of experience during her time working in New York and Sydney, Carla Rose returned to Ireland with an understanding that to flourish in the hairdressing industry, you must constantly evolve to be on top of oncoming trends and cutting edge techniques. This philosophy has been etched on the fabric of THE.SPACE and drives their strategy.

Carla and her business partner Nadine Quinn’s unique approach to business has fuelled an impressive reputation. Promoting an atmosphere of openness, 20-minute morning team meditation, a lifestyle driven approach to services and providing a continual professional development initiative for the team, are just a few of the ways they are doing things differently and reaping the rewards.

Get your questions ready as Carla Rose will be joining The Great Debate panel, discussing how to optimise time along with current business topics impacting the industry.

Salon Smart takes place on Sunday 3 November at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Dublin
