Benita Ka­vanagh of Benita’s Hair Stu­dio and Blow Dry Bar, Ark­low How's busi­ness? It's get­ting busier, hope­fully my new blowdry bar will bring ex­tra foot­fall. Have you no­ticed any changes over the past six months? The town did qui­eten down a bit for a while but it's get­ting bet­ter now. Where did it all be­gin? I started hair­dress­ing in Bri-Anns in 1995 and i opened

my own sa­lon in 2000 and I've been here since then. Work/Life bal­ance I have two kids. Ryan (10) and Lucy (4). I have a won­der­ful hus­band and par­ents that help me when I'm busy. Alan Su­gar, Don­ald Trump or Bill Cullen? Bill Cullen. Best piece of ad­vice you have ever re­ceived. Look af­ter your cus­tomers be­cause they are your bread and but­ter. How many hours do you work in an aver­age week? I work part time so about 24. Pen and paper or iPad? Pen and paper. Favourite book The Bone Col­lec­tor The tough­est les­son you've learned in life. I should have learned to drive! What's the best way to win friends and in­flu­ence people By treat­ing people how you'd like to be treated yourself. Cats or dogs Dogs Movie you've watched more than once Shaw­shank Re­demp­tion Hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion? Florida Keep fit? Thats on my to do list. The last song to stick in your head was... Ko­da­line All I want. You learn more from fail­ure than suc­cess. Agree or dis­agree. Agree. Any plans to re­tire? No, not yet any­way.
