    Nikė

    Barzdukaitė

    Stylist
    Kirpimo meistrai

    Nikė graduated from Vilnius College in 2011 and was awarded a diploma in hairdressing design. During her studies she started working for Ars Loreta. She did not limit herself to studying and working – she tried her hand at various competitions and further deepened her knowledge, so it is no surprise that she graduated with a letter of thanks for her active public activities and participation in international and national hairdressing competitions.

    Later, after studying, she gained experience in sales of professional cosmetics and organizing seminars for stylists. As a technologist at Vitrina Pro and Salerm, she led trainings introducing cosmetic ingredients and advising hairdressers on technical issues. Of course, she was constantly interested in the latest trends attending seminars of cosmetics manufacturers.

    Since 2015 Nikė is with KIRPIMO MEISTRAI. She came here as a novice stylist and today thanks to her experience and ongoing training she is already working as a stylist. Nikė participates in Wella, Allilon and internal trainings, delving into Davines hair cosmetics (which are available for sale at KIRPIMO MEISTRAI) ingredients.

    I have a very strong internal motivation and I am not afraid of high requirements. I am very curious and constantly learning and I apply the latest trends creatively in my work. Among personal qualities, I especially value honesty and punctuality, says Nikė.

    Simonas

    Stylist
    Kirpimo meistrai

    Simon was awarded Vilnius College Hairdressing Design Diploma in 2015 but he knew already the profession not only theoretically: he had been studying and practicing in KIRPIMO MEISTRAI for some time. After graduating he joined the team of salon masters as a novice stylist and in the same year already demonstrated his creativity at the beauty industry exhibition Pelene (Cinderella).

    By thoroughly serving his clients on a daily basis, Simon does not forget to devote time for professional development. He tries to participate in at least one seminar every year (Allilon, Mazella and Palmer, A twins, Davines events). Together with his hairdressing colleagues, he creates haircut and dyeing and hairstyle collections and regularly participates in the company’s internal trainings.

    Today, Simon is already on the third step of his career: he is KIRPIMO MEISTRAI’s stylist. He feels great and he tries everyday to make his clients feel the same way in an environment where, according to him, the most important thing is to emphasize the most beautiful features of a person.

    It is important for me that a person who comes to KIRPIMO MEISTRAI feels like at home – comfortable, cosy and confident. I am aiming for an impeccable result; the highest appreciation of the work is when the client says ‘See you next time!’ with a smile when leaving the salon, says Simonas.

    Martynas

    Stamkauskas

    Art Director
    Kirpimo meistrai

    Martynas graduated from Vilnius School of Light Industry and Household Services in 1999 with a degree in hairdressing. While still studying, he started serving his first clients. Later, he worked for a long time in the beauty salon Kosmedija and cultivated his professional knowledge in the Wella center – the representative office of one of the most famous hair beauty products companies in Lithuania. Here, for three years, he not only improved his haircut and dyeing skills, but also became a trainer, conducting hairdressing and dyeing seminars for hairdressers in Lithuania. He also participated in solid international and national competitions. Martynas won the prestigious Wella Trend Vision competition in Lithuania and went to represent our country in London, where he competed with the brightest young talents from around the world. He also won the Auksines Zirkles (Golden Scissors) national award for creativity.

    Martynas was invited in 2007 to work by Toni & Guy, the company that has just settled the branch in Lithuania and has the largest network of hair beauty salons in the world. The work under the banner of the brand has given him more responsibility and even more opportunities to develop professional skills – for several years in a row Martynas traveled to the prestigious Toni & Guy Academy in London in a search for ideas and knowledge. At the same time he studied and obtained a higher education diploma at Vilnius College (qualification of a hair design specialist.)

    Since 2010 Martynas is Art Director of KIRPIMO MEISTRAI. He keeps improving: he went to one of the most famous hair academies in London Vidal Sasoon to improve his skills and bring the hottest hairdressing, dyeing and combing trends and techniques. Also, he always tries to improve its professional skills in Lithuania – especially since training in our country has recently been organized by prestigious world-famous companies such as Mazella & Palmer or Allilon. The latter’s continuous, week-long training for professionals is known for its extremely high quality and it requires endless precision from the participants. Martynas improved his skills twice at Allilon Academy and attended Mazella & Palmer courses. Valuable knowledge is always shared with younger colleagues – internal training is held regularly in the salon.

    Professionalism is my top priority. And the perfect result is one that is not only perfectly technically fulfilled, but also gives good emotions to the client, says the art director of KIRPIMO MEISTRAI.

    In 2015, this young master became the winner of the prestigious Wella Trend Vision competition. It is the largest international event bringing together the brightest talents from around the world. Anastasia is the first Lithuanian representative to win the highest – platinum – award. The way towards this victory was quite purposeful: in 2014 she was the second in the Baltic selection stage in Riga, and won the third place a year earlier. Anastasia won the title of young talent in the final of the competition in Berlin, defeating 35 participants from all over the world.

    Anastasia is constantly gaining knowledge and improving her skills through training at the prestigious academies Allilon Education, Mazella & Palmer and Vidal Sassoon. She not only applies the knowledge gained there in her daily work, but also shares it with their colleagues in regular internal trainings.

Bogomolov’s Image Maker studies in Riga, and regularly participates in seminars led by world-renowned stylists – Toni & Guy, Vidal Sassoon, Dolores, Wella and others.

    Immediately after his studies he began his career as a stylist at the Performa beauty salon, where he consolidated his skills and mobilized his loyal clients over the past five years. Later, working in the salon of the world’s largest beauty network Toni & Guy in Lithuania and conducting hairdressing lessons for future hairdressers he gained international-level experience in the field of beauty, which further encouraged him to develop as a professional.

    When the company KIRPIMO MEISTRAI was established, Mindaugas started meeting his clients right here and tries to ensure that visitors meet their expectations: receive professional advice, sincere attention and, of course, enjoy a new image. Having recently improved at the Vidal Sassoon International Academy in London, Mindaugas has no doubt that image is an integral part of every personality, so he will definitely offer his new experience to anyone who wants to change or just cares about their appearance.

    The stylist believes that it is very important not to stop in his work: the trends in haircuts, colours and hairstyles are constantly changing and technology is moving forward, so in order to stay in the professional league, it is necessary to broaden the horizons. Therefore, valuable experience gained during training, communication with professionals, interests in fashion innovations – a force that constantly helps to move forward and achieve the best.

    I am a perfectionist, so I always try to apply the knowledge and inspiration from international masters in my daily work to achieve perfection, says Mindaugas.
