The Smooth Company was founded by Aine Kennedy in February 2022 after spending eight years working in the beauty industry and earning her degree in Entrepreneurship from Maynooth University. She saw a gap in the market for a hair hero which could control flyaways and baby hairs. Aine successfully created the Smooth Stick™, a unique premium hair taming wand enriched with top quality ingredients including Bition & Vitamin E which will tame flyaways without leaving your hair hard or greasy.
Aine was recently named as one of the Sunday Independent 30 under 30 Irish businesspeople to watch. She was also the winner of the Emerging New Business Award by the Small Firms Association, shortlisted for the Image PWC Young Businesswoman of the Year Award and winner of Irish Woman of the year ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’ award.
