5 MINUTES WITH OSCAR CULLINAN

Oscar Cullinan Managing Director

We talk business with Oscar Cullinan, Owner & Director of Oscar Oscar Salons:

 

1. Where did it all begin?

I commenced hairdressing in a country town on the West Coast of Ireland. That salon still remains to be a bustling space ran by my younger sister. My inspiration comes from all living and man-made creations. From Chanel to Bunnings, to the streetscape of major cities or my love-hate relationship with social media! I yearn to be off the grid one day.

2. You’ve built an empire, biggest lesson you have learnt on the way to the top?

A wise man once asked me “what happens if you train staff and they leave?” and before I could answer he quipped – “what happens if you don’t train them and they stay”.

3. What would be your advice for your 20 year old self?

Keep moving forward. I have learned over the years to surround myself with people that are strong at the things I am weakest at, particularly in the world of business. In business today there are so many moving parts that a brand or even small business must be across and master to grow and develop. “Hire for attitude train for skill” (not my words, borrowed of course) but “attitude” is almost everything, yet not quite.

4. The most iconic hairstyle you have done to date?

I’ve done many that I am proud of however Monochromatic & Glacier Bay Collections in our gallery are my faves.

5. Outside of Hairdressing, where can we find Oscar and what are his passions?

The farm is where you will find me, that is my escape from the crowds. If I am not there I’ll be at my gym getting up a sweat and taking my day’s frustrations out on the punching bag.

6. What do you the next 5 years look like for you?

Busy building my new product range and opening more salons.
