These confident women prove that beauty needn't be defined just by long, luscious hair. Check out the gorgeous transformations below!
The Moscow-based hairdresser believes that these hair makeovers break stereotypes put forward by society and help make women more confident in their skin (and hair!). "I think the main thing the hairdresser has to possess is the ability to wholeheartedly love working with people and feel their needs. Of course, you also have to consider things such as aesthetics and one’s personal taste, but in the end, your mission is to make a person a better, more beautiful version of themselves. And that's what I do with my haircuts, I like to make women feel happier, more beautiful, free, and brave," she told Bored Panda.
The hairstylist realized that working with hair was her biggest passion and it pushed her to explore the field further. "A lot of women in their 30s are either working in a field they do not like or they have lost all of their inspiration to keep moving forward. It happened to me too; at some point, I lost all of my motivation to keep moving forward and deepen my knowledge when it came to my profession at the time. Before becoming a full-time hairstylist, I was teaching Spanish and also worked as a translator and choreographer." She finally decided that working with hair was where she was meant to be. Speaking of her favorite hair transformation, she confessed, "I’m a highly specialized specialist, so people come to me exclusively for short haircuts. There are a lot of transformations I’ve done, but I couldn’t say which one is my favorite since every haircut is unique and personally tailored for the person I’m giving it to. I like the transformation that happens with my clients during the cut itself. You can see how the face becomes more lifted, women become way younger right away, and the haircuts themselves make them look more stylish, and modern by giving them a sharper look."
