Beauty & Spas
If you want to join a pseudo-military queue of young men lined up for a short-back-and-sides or a quick shave, then Uppercuts is a good choice, located in central Kilkenny. A crew-cut will knock you back EUR6 while a wash and cut for those who want to keep some of their locks, is a bargain at EUR9. There are lots of magazines and newspapers provided to distract you while waiting for the chop.
Lurking between Prado Menswear Shop and Let's Talk Phones, Cuts and Curls is a reputable ladies and gents hair salon. If traveling has left you looking a bit scruffy, or a special occasion is approaching, then they could be worth a visit. Although it is probably worth making an appointment to be absolutely sure they can fit you in, they may well be able to accommodate you if you visit on-spec. There is also a sunbed available, although on Irish beaches, a lack of a tan is not uncommon.
This beauty and body clinic is situated right in the heart of Kilkenny city and offers a wide range of top beauty and health treatments.

This intimate and centrally-located salon must be a favourite with the ladies of Kilkenny, if the bulging appointments book on the receptionist's desk is anything to go by. Make sure you phone in advance for an appointment, especially with Alison herself. A wash, cut and blow-dry costs EUR21 and a wash and cut for gents costs EUR9 in this modern salon.
