Millies.ie is the leading Irish-owned destination for professional and premium skincare and haircare
Introducing Joann Mahon: Owner and MD of Millies.ie
Millies was founded in 2007 by Kildare born beauty therapist and entrepreneur, Joann Mahon, started with a salon-based service specialising in advanced skincare. After three successful years and a loyal client base, a second location opened in Kildare Town in 2010. Joann’s family background in retail ensured that both salons put a strong focus on the retail aspect of the business alongside the service elements.
Seeing a gap in the market for the sale of professional beauty products online, Joann established the Millies.ie online platform in 2010. Eleven years later, Millies.ie stocks over 100 Irish and international luxury beauty brands and is the top Irish destination for anyone looking for the best in skincare, haircare and wellness.
In early 2020 before the pandemic struck the nation, Joann recruited a marketing team, a customer service team, a warehouse team and in-house skincare and haircare educators to meet the growing demand on Millies.ie.
Speaking about the launch and progression of Millies, Joann Mahon said,
“I started Millies back in 2007 as a one person show and today I’m delighted to have 35+ staff working within the business. When I was sixteen, I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries and with that diagnoses came a lifetime of skin issues. My personal battle with skin issues led me to desperately seek out solutions and expert advice for my problematic skin. This drew me to the beauty industry and from there my absolute obsession with skincare and laser treatment began. I quickly noticed the dramatic impact quality professional products made to my skin and how they could alter the condition of my skin and more importantly the boost in confidence that gave me.”
