Ella grew up in Kyiv, Ukraine with a mother and sister who were both cosmetologists, watching them both work away at their craft and being inspired to one day follow in their footsteps. While in Ukraine, she finished makeup school and practiced makeup off and on for eight years when she moved to Southern California, preparing brides for their big day, doing makeup for prom, photo shoots and video commercials. Life and family interrupted so she put her cosmetology dreams on hold for a season. She has recently graduated Continental School of Beauty as an A+ student as well as being a recipient of Horst Rechelbacher "Sustainable Beginnings" scholarship. She has a passion for coloring, especially focusing on lived-in/low-maintenance blonding services, highlights, balayage, gray blending and grey transitioning. She is looking forward to obtaining hair extensions experience to start offering this service. She is detail orientated and loves partnering with clients to achieve their desired look. It is Ella's top priority that her clients leave feeling heard, relaxed and well taken care of!
