Julia

Stylist

Who are you? Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m Julia, a 30-year-old creative soul. To me, the world is a beautiful and wondrous place, always offering something new to marvel at and learn from. I’ve traveled extensively throughout my life, living on different continents. I love learning new languages and cultures, and I enjoy listening to people’s life stories. In my free time, I now prefer staying at home rather than going out, relishing in the slow moments and tranquility of everyday life. My hobbies include cooking, painting, and music.

How did you end up to Hair industry working as a stylist?
Since I was young, I’ve been expressing my creativity in various ways, and as a teenager, I became interested in hair and beauty. This led me to play hairstylist with my friends using home hair dye kits and scissors. However, my parents discouraged the idea of pursuing a career in the hair industry, so I ended up graduating from high school. The dream of becoming a hairstylist resurfaced in university when I saw an advertisement for a hairdressing school on the bus. I applied and haven’t regretted my choice since.

Where do you find an inspiration for your work?
Nature is one of my biggest sources of inspiration. I often find myself marveling at the colors, shapes, and contrasts during walks, discovering more the closer I pay attention to my surroundings.

What do you like the most about your work, and what are your strengths?
I enjoy most in my work the process of finding a shared vision with the client and the joy that comes from successfully realizing it for both parties. I believe that at least 50% of a hairstylist’s job is communication, with the rest being craftsmanship. I specialize in bridal hairstyles, where the importance of communication is even more pronounced, as the bridal hairstyle must align perfectly with the wearer’s desires. I also work as an instructor at Unika, and I find it wonderful to teach aspiring hairstylists and to follow their development.

How long have you been working as a hairstylist?
I’ve been in the industry for a decade, accumulating expertise across the board.

Julia serves her clients in Finnish and English.

In my free time, I enjoy reading fantasy literature, practicing boxing, and dreaming of stunt acting jobs.

How did you end up to Hair industry working as a stylist?
Since I was a child, I have always enjoyed styling my own hair, and as a teenager, I did hairstyles for my friends for events like confirmations and “vanhojentanssit”.

Every day is different, meeting different people and hearing their stories. I constantly feel euphoria in my work, which indicates that I am truly in the right field. One of my strengths is my ability to read people and manage overall tasks effectively. I also strive to always be approachable, so that clients feel comfortable expressing even the smallest of their desires to me. Currently, my strength in hairdressing lies in hairdos.

I graduated as a hairdresser in March 2024, but I have been working as an entrepreneur in cosmetology and makeup artistry since 2018. I am an enthusiastic newcomer in the industry and hope for many opportunities to learn.

Pirma

Stylist

I come from Oulu, but my previous studies brought me to Helsinki 20 years ago. Already then I was interested in studying to become a hairstylist, but I ended up in the restaurant industry and stayed there for quite some time. Now I felt that the restaurant industry could no longer offer me challenges, so studying a new profession for myself became topical. Again I started to dream of becoming a hairstylist and here we are. I enjoy my new profession immensely.

I get inspiration from everywhere; on the streets, social media, education, my colleagues and customers. I’m by nature a social observer, so I’m influenced by everything around me. I’m really eager to learn new things and for that reason I try to look at the world with as open mind and eyes as possible.

In my work I’m excited about everything, but definitely the most I want to create beautiful entities with coloring and cutting. I like to make natural looks, but on the other hand bold and colorful changes are wonderful to implement. The best thank you is a happy customer.

I’m born and raised in Helsinki. Already at a early age I knew that I wanted to study beauty industries. Hairdressing came more interesting than beauty therapist in elementary school.

I look for inspiration for my work from social media, friends, magazines and all kind of things around me.

I like to cut short haircuts the most. Especially with razor. Also educating students in our own school is very close to my heart. But the very best thing is to meet new people and make their dreams come true.

I’m from Helsinki and I got interested in this industry when I had the feeling that my earlier profession wasn’t the right for me. I wanted to do something creative and work with people.

Now I just want my mother to be proud of me and my professionalism, and now it’s my turn to do her hair. I enjoy seeing the happiness on my customers faces when they get a new look. My inspiration comes from social media, my colleagues and trainings.

I like colouring. Balayage and soft natural result are wonderful and practical. I think they are suitable for almost everyone because they have so many different possibilities and they can always be done according to the customer. I also enjoy doing unusual colourings.
