Ekaterina Geller

   Ekaterina is in many ways unique, with a rare combination of equally impressive make-up artist and hair-stylist talents, and a natural modesty, given her striking professional achievements and victories in various contests.

   In 2000, at the age of 16, Ekaterina made her debut at the World hairstyling championship in Berlin. Later on she won prizes (hairstyles and colouring) at the 2000 European Championship, 2001 World championship in Riga, 2005 European Championship in the Kremlin, and the 2007 Rose d’Or Championship in Paris.

   As explained by Ekaterina, she had no alternative as to the choice of her future occupation: “A third generation hairdresser - I was meant to be one”. However, for some time she tried to resist and went to the Belarus State University to study psychology. But then one day she had to decide between the world championship in hairstyling and an exam at the University. Ekaterina chose the Championship - and once and for all realised what she liked most of all. In parallel with her development in hairdressing she studied make-up, design, photography and painting, because she believes these areas are related. In 2003 she qualified as a colouring technician, in 2004 she completed the Dolores Academy Fashion Week modelling course.

   It took Ekaterina a long time to make up her mind to join us, and we are happy that ultimately she became part of our team. Ever since she has been one of the main players on our team, and her professionalism is highly estimated by both clients and colleagues. And this is how Ekaterina describes her feelings: “Ambiance is what matters a lot to me. The specialists and technicians working in the salon are fascinating, highly experienced professionals, I landed up among topnotch specialists’’.

   She is quite modest about her achievements: “Basically I am a colour stylist. A visagiste, too. I care for hairdressing”. In other words, the colour that Ekaterina chooses and applies will surely ecstasize the clients, her make-up art level is beyond understanding, and each of her hair styles is a work of art. As for make-up, Ekaterina uses the latest technique in this area: TEMPTU airbrush beauty tool. Apart from the “in-home” work in the salon, Ekaterina is experienced in the “away” fashion photo sessions and videoshooting. For over 2 years she worked as a stylist of the widely known Modnyj Prigovor (Fashion Verdict) TV program, creating her own hairstyle and couture collection.

   It is interesting to note that her hobby is painting. She is confident that “there are no ugly people, there is just that indisposition to care for oneself” and “Professional advancement is impossible without personal advancement, and vice versa”. Ekaterina’s make-up for 2014 Halloween helped her clients win in all possible contests for the best Halloween look - with one of them winning iPhone 6 for the best make-up.
