“Definitely love what you do with your whole body and soul.”

What country are you from and where do you live?

I’m from Russia. I live and work in Moscow.

I’m a hairdresser and a teacher. I work At the Academy of Hairdressing “Dolores” (@dolores_academy). This is the best Academy in Russia in hairdressing.

Education background (Hair school, art school, no school)?

I received my hairdresser’s degree at The Dolores Academy.

What is your signature style/artistic expression to your work?

In my work, I stick to shape, color, texture and try to connect these important details into a single whole, preserving femininity, sexuality and mystery of the image.

Do you have a career turning point or big break that has helped your career? What was your scariest and proudest moment in your career?

There were no breaks in my career.  My profession is my life! Therefore, there were ups and downs, and each period taught me something and so I always move forward in anticipation of new emotions and experiences.

For me, the most important moment in my career, when I began to teach!  Sharing knowledge with others is my destiny! I am a teacher of hairdressing and I am proud of it!

What is next for your career goals?

I am attracted to everything new, so I do not stop learning always.  I observe the activities of my colleagues in Russia and in other countries and new skills are always a victory.  Participation in competitions helps to gain experience and new acquaintances.

What advice would you give to someone starting out in your business? 

Definitely love what you do with your whole body and soul.  Do not stop working and only move forward!
