My name is Katya Rodionova. I am a Philadelphia based hairstylist working in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. At the age of 21 I came to the US after leaving my hometown of Russia. Having no family or roots here I had to decide on a career path. With a degree in Economics from a Russian University, I was looking to follow my passion and I knew that business wasn’t it. My entire life I felt beauty and fashion. So I did the sensible thing and enrolled in Cosmetology School.
In 2010 I received my degree from The Lab, a Paul Mitchell Partner School, continuing my education at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London. I took part in various workshops from Goldwell to Loreal Color, Hot Head and Donna Bella Extensions, as well as Bridal Workshop at the Soho Academy in NYC.
After gaining hands-on experience from a Princeton based salon I joined the Architeqt Salon and Gallery team located in Philadelphia, PA. Here I finished my apprenticeship for dry cutting and advanced color techniques.
My main passion is Bridal, Special Event, Runway and Editorial Hair Styling. I specialize in wavy and soft, classy and chic, vintage and retro, braided and bohemian looks. I focus on making sure that you feel and look absolutely amazing and that you are relaxed and stress free for your big day or other event.
The highlight of my day as a hairstylist is in seeing my clients happy with my work and excited with the way they look. My approach is simple, to create hairstyles that enhance my clients’ natural features. My goal is to provide the best bridal hair in Philadelphia =)
