Whether it’s with a professional qualification in mind, or just for fun, check out Allure Hair & Beauty Salon and Midland College of Hair, Make-Up & Beauty in Tullamore, Co Offaly and now also Athlone, Co Westmeath. At RSVP, we love brilliant beauty academies. Going back to school has never sounded more tempting!

Allure Hair & Beauty Salon to open new training college in Westmeath.

Allure Hair & Beauty Salon and Midland College of Hair, Make-Up & Beauty in Tullamore, Co Offaly, is now expanding to open a sister academy in Athlone, Co Westmeath.

The company was founded in 2004, by Joan O’Meara, a native of Ballycumber, and it’s since gone from strength to strength. A high level of standards with training and hands-on practical experience mean that Allure has a 100% employment rate on their main diploma courses. Learners who choose Allure get experienced educators and state of the art facilities, as the Tullamore campus is now the largest private college in Ireland, with an impressive 7,000 square feet of space. Students now commute from around Ireland as both colleges are easily accessible by road, rail and foot, and there is free parking on campus.


Allure caters for all learning styles and deliberately keeps class sizes small to maximise potential. An affordable payment plan is available on all courses.

Part time and full time diploma courses are available in all areas of hairdressing, make-up, beauty, skincare, nails, teacher training and barbering, with qualifications awarded by Allure, ITEC, VTCT and the junior and senior trade exams are awarded by the Department of Education (state commissions). Allure also caters for short daytime and night courses, focusing on blow drying, colouring, cutting, up-styling and make-up, as well as running summer camps for teens and children. In exciting developments, Allure has also teamed up with NSI Ireland and Michelle Fox MUA, to bring extra courses on board.

Allure offers affordable precision services to the public, with which learners gain practical salon experience. You can apply to be a model and have full input to the look you want, under supervision of Allure’s experienced educators. You can also avail of the services of Allure’s qualified hair stylists and educators, at regular salon prices.

In the Athlone campus, all hairdressing and beauty services are under the one roof, as in Tullamore. Constant upskilling and innovation bring the newest skills and trends to Allure’s salons and training facilities. For example, Karen, Allure’s head educator in Beauty and Make-Up, is just back from Miami where she trained with Kim Kardashian’s make-up artist, Mario Dedivanovic. Regular seminars with guest tutors are held in Allure’s very own seminar room with utilities such as a stage, TV, lights and a PA system.


If you’re interested in hair, make-up, beauty and fashion, Allure also runs seminars which are open to the public. These have proven to be a fun, educational ladies’ day out. If you have a special occasion coming up, such as a wedding, communion, confirmation or birthday, you can avail of Allure’s call out service or a private room for your function. It is also the first company in the Midlands to offer kids’ hair, nails or make-up parties.
