"Having finished her Leaving Cert, Elaine expressed her lifelong ambition to her mother and I to follow her dream and become a hair stylist. This was no surprise to us as this is a path she had always wanted to follow. As all parents we supported her decision but insisted on ensuring that she receive the finest training Ireland had to offer.
Having made my enquiries, The David Marshall School of Hairdressing was widely recommended so I arranged to meet with David personally to discuss what I could expect from sending Elaine to his college. After moments in his company I was captured by his expertise and experience and was instantly confident that his was the finest college for my daughter.
Elaine immediately settled into college life, made friends and became enraptured by all the techniques hairdressing has to offer. Since commencing she has grown in confidence, personality and experience and I am delighted to endorse The David Marshall School of Hairdressing as being the best decision both myself and my wife, Catherine, have ever made for our daughter Elaine." Eamonn Freeman, Elaine Freeman's father (16 May 2012)
"I trained at the David Marshall School of Hairdressing in 2002. I successfully completed the eighteen month Diploma Course and I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. I received constant encouragement and support from my teachers and I achieved an excellent standard in both cutting and colour.
After graduating and working with David Marshall, I moved to Toronto, Canada where I was the top revenue generator in one of the top 10 hair salons in the city. I was also a member of a semi-finalist team in Contesa the top Canadian hair competition. Since then I opened Jini Jung Hair Artisans in one of most upscale neighborhoods in Toronto.
I have worked with many fashion magazines and newspapers including doing the session work for the editor-in-chief of Elle Canada for over a year.
I would like to thank David Marshall and his teachers and I would highly recommend the David Marshall School of Hairdressing to any student that would be considering a career in hairdressing for either session or commercial." Jini Jung (16 May 2012)
"I trained at the David Marshall Academy for eighteen months and during that time I learned everything about colour, cutting, up-styling and much more. After my training I was employed as a stylist where I was able to quickly build up my clientele.
All the teaching staff were supportive and encouraging. In this industry you have to keep up with the latest trends and techniques and I was able to continue on learning throughout my time with David.
I am moving to Vancouver, Canada where I want to continue in this industry. My training here gave me a passport to travel and David has assured me that the door is always open when I return. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants the best training for a career in hairdressing." Lauren Waters (17 May 2012)
"Great training is the foundation of a great career. I trained at David Marshall's School Of Hairdressing in 1986 and got exactly that. I progressed from student to stylist to senior stylist with David, and even taught at the school itself. In 1992 I opened my own salon and 20 years later I still love what I do! The training at David Marshall's speaks for itself." Richard O'Keeffe - The Hair Company, Mullingar ,Co. Westmeath (17 May 2012)
"I’m delighted I chose the David Marshall School of Hairdressing as the start to my hairdressing career. I can honestly say that I have gained excellent training throughout the course. The teachers were all fantastic and it was a really enjoyable experience. After graduating I then went on to work in the David Marshall Salon with a great team of stylists and colourists and never stopped learning!
I am now travelling Australia where my skills are in huge demand. By working in other salons I know how well I was trained in all aspects of hairdressing. If you really want a great career, it is worth training with the best!" Shauna Kavanagh (16 May 2012)
