Eileen Buggy is an Irish hair designer who has worked on productions such as Butcher Boy, Disco Pigs, Boy Eats Girl and Zonad.
As a child, Eileen, along with her brother, well known actor Niall Buggy, attended the Brendan Smith Academy of Acting. She started her career in hairdressing at the age of fourteen. Just a few years later she was singing and touring with her band, but felt the need to get back to hairdressing after getting married and having a family. Eileen went on to open a very successful salon in Coolock, Dublin, but always remained interested in the arts. When the opportunity arose in 1993 to work on the film In the Name of the Father, she jumped at the chance. She found herself to be a natural with the actors and within a short time became one of the most sought after hairstylists in the film Industry.
