"Visagism allows me to create versatile and, above all, personalized cuts. The hair style is like a fingerprint, it can be similar, but each one has its own uniqueness."
"A style is not a specific haircut. It's an attitude!
It is a reflection of the individual's own personality and behavior. As a visagist, I work side by side with the person to rescue their personality, enhance their attitude and make them shine."
