Dominika Laureckis

Owner - Hairstylist/Bridal specialist

I have attended the college of art, followed by several professional courses in hairdressing and styling. I was passionate about both – hair styling and art, and could not decide in which field I should specialize. Finally I realized I do not have to choose between them but I can do both!



    A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous


      Make up artist/Eybrows technician/Hairstylist

      Fond of natural and feminine look


        Hairdresser/Colour specialist

        Your hair is a crown, you never take off


          Hairdresser/Colour specialist

          I think that the most important thing a woman can have- next to talent, of course- is her hairdresser

            Dominika recently gave her time to style the hair for the models in a Vintage Fashion Show for the ISPCC. She created some amazing, fun and exciting hairstyles which were perfect in keeping with the theme of the day. She was professional in her work and very friendly and talkative. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dominika for any event or occasion and I look forward to working with her again.

            Hair Passion salon is just great! Every time I have an appointment I feel more like visiting a friend rather than going to a hair salon. Dominika is the first hair stylist in Cork who managed to perform a perfect cut on my hair – so I can style the hair at home without any problem! It’s easy to look great straight after visiting a hairdresser – but for me it is critical to be able to manage the hair myself until the next haircut. Dominika always cuts my hair perfectly, so they look good and I don’t have to put too much effort into styling it.

            My experience at “Hair-passion Salon” with Dominika Laureckis From the moment Dominika (Hair-passion) & Sheila (Sahara Make-up Cork) arrived to the door I knew we were in safe hands. I had two trials with Dominika in the lead up to the wedding, I brought in some pictures for inspiration and Dominika knew exactly what I was looking for. Both trials were completely different styles and then on the day of the wedding I had changed my mind once again!! and Dominika was able to whip up a spectacular up do. She is so talented and super creative, I don’t think there is any style she cannot do! The girls made the day so relaxed and enjoyable and we were so glad to have them there. They captured the look I had imagined for myself and the bridesmaids perfectly. I am so happy I went with Dominika hairstylist at Hair Passion salon in Cork. Thank you so much Dominika!!! -xxx

            Just want to send a massive and sincere thank you to Dominika at Hair Passion. She did an amazing job on the morning of our wedding 18th Sept. She did the upstyles on my hair, my 3 bridesmaids and both Mums. The hair do's were classic and elegant, exactly what we were looking for, and Dominika knew what would suit each of us best. She is an excellent person to have around on the morning of a wedding. Professional, fun and helpful - contributed a lot to a very relaxed atmosphere in our house that morning. I couldn't believe how smoothly everything went with Dominika keeping us all on schedule. I recommend her unreservedly for anyone looking for a friendly and excellent wedding hair stylist. You can have 100% confidence if you are lucky enough to get her booked for your wedding. Thank you! :* :*

            Hi Dominika:) Thank you so much for the beautiful up style!!! It was exactly what I wanted for my wedding day. Everyone had lovely things to say about it. It even held up the day after so I proudly sported it all of Sunday. Finding someone who shares your vision on your wedding day is so important. For that I thank you. Once all the pieces came together the hair, make-up, dress and accessories I couldn't have imagined it more perfect for me. We decided on a Humanist ceremony as neither Donal or I are Catholic. It was difficult at first to convince some of our family and friends that an unconventional wedding was going to be traditional enough to impress people. It turns out that we had many traditions through out the day. My Mother walked me down the isle. We had readings not from the bible but written about lasting love and commitment. One was even a traditional Apache Indian reading. Overall the guests found our ceremony very touching. Moving enough to make even the more conservative shed a tear or two:) We have since been described as a "very laid back couple" so it's fitting that even though we were responsible for arranging every last detail of the big day, neither of us was feeling anything but joy and love. It would be my pleasure to contribute to other brides having as good experience as I had with you. Kindest regards, Kate

            It was truly a pleasure to work with Dominika. She is extremely talented and creative. She worked very quickly to create whatever hairstyle was needed for the brief, while also putting her own unique twist on it. Dominika is so friendly and professional making it easy to communicate ideas to her! I will definitely be working with her again!

            My own experience with Hair Passion is very good. I feel that I always receive the best service possible. I’d never been disappointed with my haircut, colour or style. I really enjoy the positive atmosphere in the salon – it gives me great energy for the whole day! Dominika (the main stylist) is such a sweetheart! She always makes sure her clients leave her salon happy..

            Angela Karczewska

            Dominika is a very positive person – she always smiles and never complains. The atmosphere in the salon is relaxed and very positive. I recommend the hair salon to everyone, who wants a creative haircut suitable to their character and personality. Dominika always knows which hair style will suit a client and she's always right– I’ve never heard any one complaining about her! Her salon has an excellent reputation in Cork City.

            I have been living in Cork for 9 months and couldn't find a good hairstylist and after a long search luckily I found you Dominika! Just loving my hairs, they are looking awesome. Everyone is praising them.... Thank you so much for taking out time for me from your already fully booked schedule... You are a darling! I appreciate your favour a lot!

            Tehrim Komal

            Dominika is an absolute pleasure to collaborate with, her speed, dexterity and creativity are of a really high standard. Understanding what a shoot requires and making it happen, in a highly professional, relaxed, efficient and friendly manner means I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her work, in fact, I really look forward to working with her again.

            If you are looking for a great hairdresser - Hair Passion is the place to go. Dominika is a very talented and highly skilled professional and hairdressing is truly her passion! I always feel welcomed in her salon and I know she would listen very carefully to what I need. Every time I go there I am always pleased with the result and feel relaxed and more beautiful.

            Patrycja Elzbieta

            Dominika has won my heart from the very first visit about 3 years ago. She’s lovely personality as well as great skills and talent as a hairdresser, there is no question about that. But what really makes her stand out of the crowd is her very individual approach to every client. She always listens carefully, tries to get to know what kind of person you are, what are your needs and then suggests a hair style for you. This, combined with her knowledge and skills, guarantees you will get the best, most professional, individual and honest advice, so that you will never be disappointed with the final results. What’s more - even when I book a visit just to trim ends, I always get her full attention. What matters most is the client, no matter if you came to the salon for small or big job to be done. I would never hesitate to recommend Dominika. The salon could not have been named more appropriately. This is not only a job for Dominika. This is her Passion

            Marie Posluszny

            To Dominika Laureckis: I just want to say thank you for making our special day even more beautiful. All my family adored the hair you've done so nicely for my baby's Christening, In fact, my 3 sisters and my Mum got their hair done for the same occasion... Well done on timing and coming up with ideas for our unruly hair. Everything stayed in place for the whole day; no need for carrying hair spray in our handbags....Since I discovered your salon I haven't been anywhere else... Love the place, the upbeat and positive vibes coming from you, and the cup of coffee at the hour of need... Well done!

            Edyta O'Callaghan

            Dominika in Hair Passion Art Salon is fantastic. She always pays attention to what way I want my hair done. And because I’ve gone to her for a while and know that I can trust her, I am now happy to go with any suggestions that she has as they have always worked out perfectly. In general the salon is really great too. The staff are all very friendly and you feel like you’re a valued customer there each time you go but I have to give a shout out to my girl Dominika in particular. Spectacular colourist and stylist!!! Dominika does such an amazing job with hair! Since the last time she cut and colored my hair I have received countless compliments. What I really appreciate about her ability, is how she listens to what you want. I LOVED MY HAIR on my wedding day also. She was so great to work with and I would recommend her to everyone out there! Thank you Dominika

            Barbara Budzynska

            I had a negative experience with other hairdressers in respect of my trials before wedding and I was so upset and stressed as my wedding day was so close till I found Dominika. She found time for my trial and wedding day itself on 8th Dec 2014 in her busy graphic.She also did bridesmaid's and mum's hair. I have to say she did an absolutely fantastic job.Thanks a million for amazing hairstyles.She is an absolute professional as well as incredibly friendly and chatty which put me at ease whilst we were getting ready. I would recommend her highly to any bride who wants a stress free. She was brilliant, fabulous ideas. We were so delighted with her, pleasure to deal with. I will return to her always and my family, friends.

            Thank you again for doing such amazing work the morning of our wedding. I can't believe you managed to do so many amazing hair creations in one morning. The bridesmaids and I were all thrilled with your work, you really managed to bring out everyone's individual personalities. You were such a calming influence on the morning as well. I'd highly recommend you to any other future brides.

            I don't even have words to describe how happy I am with this salon! Dominika is very professional and creative lady. And she is not only a hairdresser, but also a real artist. She styled my hair for graduation today and I am more than delighted with her work. The place itself is nice and cosy, and the location is very convenient. Highly recommended smile emoticon
