I am so excited to share this post with you guys today and resurrect the Artist Spotlight feature on the blog! To bring it back, I have my wonderful friend and super talented hair stylist, Anastasia!
I have been knowing this beautiful lady for quite some time and since becoming a photographer, we have teamed up on various projects over the years and brought to life fabulosity in the process :) She’s also one of my personal go-to stylists- especially last year when I was on a quest to experiment with as many styles as possible before cutting my hair lol
So without further ado, I introduce to you- Anastasia!
What is your name?
Where are you located?
Washington, DC at Bang Salon- Verizon Center
What do you do?
I’m a hairstylist!
How long have you been a hair stylist?
How did you become interested in hair and when did you know you wanted to be a professional stylist?
I grew up around very beautiful, fun, fashionable people. My grandma always kept her hair styled and dressed very nicely and I was always trying to do her hair lol. I remember when i was about 4 or 5, while we were supposed to be taking a nap, I put Vaseline all over her hair, face and the mirror near her bed. She woke up burning up hot and was laughing while I had Vaseline all over my face with comb in my hand! Lol
I knew from as far back as kindergarten that i wanted to make others happy, feel beautiful, and that I wanted to be a hairstylist.
What has been your favorite project that you’ve worked on so far?
The Bohemian Gem/Scarlet Enigma Editorial!
What other types of creative work do you do?
I do editorial work with DFinney Photography and travel to different cities for hair shows, weddings, parties, events, and classes.
What inspires you?
I loove color and big flirty hair!
What keeps you motivated?
The creation around me inspires me every day. I love seeing the smiles on my clients’ faces and the whipping of their hair as they leave the salon :) I love to know that I made you feel like you are the bomb.com! Lol
I hope you enjoyed getting to know Anastasia a little better! She is definitely one of my favorite hair stylists and I’m even happier to call her a friend :) Check her out on social media via the links above and reach out to her via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like to have your tresses blessed by her hands ;)
I have a few of these features lined up for the next couple weeks and look forward to showcasing even more of my fabulously talented friends with you soon as well.
Have a great rest of the day loves!
