About Victoria Kuzma, Mobile Hairstylist
I am a fully trained artist who has fallen in love with the ideals of beauty and form that come down to us from the ages and many cultures. In 2004 after graduating from Queen’s, I followed my lifelong dream of becoming a Vancouver hairstylist. My purpose is to work with your natural hair to bring forth the beauty that lies within you already.
When I got the call back from ECHO telling me I was hired, it was the greatest day of my career. Since then, I have become more and more grateful for the opportunity they gave me, and I hope I’m making them proud! They trained me to offer you VIP services and fostered in me a creative passion that is second to none. I started out as an apprentice and colour technician, and worked my way up to a full-fledged stylist, assisting with weddings and even working as a hair model for print advertising. After moving to Vancouver I quickly learned that mobile hairstyling is much more fun than being in a salon…I love what I do and my clients know it!
With the understanding that hair is a branch of the fashion industry, I regularly update my product, colour and cutting knowledge to offer you the most current trends and tricks of the trade. In November 2015 I assisted with the pilot program for Red Seal Endorsement for Hairstylists, and received my Red Seal. Schwarzkopf is my favourite company and I am a certified Schwarzkopf Master Colourist.
I don’t really have a favourite thing about this career. I think it would be that I go home at night feeling grateful for all my interesting clients, and inspired to do even better the next day. It’s always exciting to do makeovers, from complete haircolour redesign to haircut overhauls (I call them Big Chops). I enjoy helping clients to reclaim their natural grey hair (Gracefully Going Grey), and I have the patience for dramatic transitions from deep brunette to brilliant blonde. I do my very best work with curly clients; I know a special haircut that actually enhances curl while inhibiting frizz….you have to try it to believe it!
I also offer complete wedding packages for Western, Indian and Asian brides. I am familiar with cultural traditions from many different countries, thanks to the wonderful diversity in Vancouver, and do a lot of dual-culture multi-day bookings.
The most inspiring part of working with a bride is seeing the whole look come together on her Big Day. Every woman has her own unique loveliness, and it is my job as part of her beauty team – hair, makeup and wardrobe – to showcase her most beautiful self. Since 2004 I have worked with hundreds of brides and their wedding parties, and am internationally published in blogs such as Style Me Pretty, e-zines such as Bello and Raine, and also print publications such as British Vogue (February 2016 and 100th Anniversary June 2016). It’s my pleasure to offer you confidence and security that your Big Day will be off to a perfect start.
