She had a dream of becoming a stylist and working in an upscale salon or a spa for as long as she can remember, and was styling and cutting the hair of friends and relatives long before deciding to take it to the professional level. After receiving her BA in Economics and finishing a Beauty Academy of Moscow in 1995 she worked as a manager in Wella Salon in Moscow. During this time she was trained with the best European masters from Wella Institute for advance cutting, color & styling. She moved to Austin in 1999. She has worked as a senior stylist in the top Austin salons like Salon at Saks Fifth Avenue, Salon 505 and Naava Salon and Spa. When it comes to hair she is eager to continue to advance her expertise and develop new skills.
