Makeup, hair, and beauty consulting
Welcome to Artistry by Ksenia,
I'm a hair and makeup stylist based in Vancouver.
I'm detail oriented, creative, and hands on. While attending University of Manitoba, I studied art and art history which isn't surprising given that I've always been passionate about all forms of art. Luckily, in my early 20s I realized that a career in the makeup industry was a real option (shocking!!).
I received my global makeup training from Blanche Macdonald and throughout the years I taught myself how to style hair. Learning and evolving is a big part of my industry and I take pride in staying on top of the latest techniques, styles, and product knowledge.
My style of work varies from really natural to soft glam. I strive to make my clients look effortless without looking too done up. Although my personality is larger than life, being mindful and bringing a certain level of professionalism to all of my jobs is very important to me. I look at my job as a collaboration between me and my clients – we work together to achieve a vision using my skills.
I find myself currently working on headshots for actors and businesses, fashion campaigns, events, and bridal. I love educating and sharing my skills, which I get to do in my role as a hair instructor at a local college. I also offer private classes and beauty consulting for clients who require more knowledge in the self-care department.
As my brand grows, I'm slowly bringing on other creatives to be able to accommodate larger jobs. I'm a serial juggler of many roles within my brand and am thrilled to see where my passion will take me!
Take a look around and I'd love to hear from you!
