Passion is Contagious
Veronika always had her hands in her sister’s hair. A girl who was known for having the best braids in school. However, as a young woman in the 90’s Czech Republic, hair was not a lucrative career path. Her parents disapproved. With an impassioned plea, she explained to them the science behind hair and vowed to prove it. These days, her parents are two of her biggest fans. When asked how she changed their minds, Veronika said, “passion is contagious.”
Making a Move to America
One chilly Chicagoan winter in 2005, Veronika moved to America. In her words, “I had the immigrant dream to live my life freely.” She has been in the United States 15 years now and feels that Vegas is her second home.
Making Her Client’s Hair Work for Them
Veronika is one of our most highly reviewed stylists. It’s because of the pride she takes in every single service. Veronika always strives for each client to leave with hair perfectly catered to their lifestyle. She explains some clients want a dramatic change but are usually just struggling with their type of hair. Whether it’s too thick, too thin, or have a cowlick in a difficult place. Veronika loves to give ideas and help people find their true selves.
Like Many Stylists, She Avoided Cutting
A lot of stylists avoid cuts. Veronika, too, saw herself as more of a colorist. Over time it bothered her that she was unable to help people with their styling needs. She decided to dedicate herself to cuts.
Her dedication led her to the ZGAT Academy, where she met Mario Mesaric. Mario taught her there isn’t one technique of cutting hair. It comes from an understanding of face and shape. Once you understand shape, cutting is more about how you achieve it. Veronika practices this philosophy every day, and it has helped shaped her talent for cutting.
Protecting Your Hair
Veronika is a hair health evangelist. She says, “I always try to protect hair. I often see people coming to me with overbleached and damaged hair. It makes me sad. I like to use techniques like 3D balayage or air-touch to lighten hair healthily.”
Fundamental Color Theory
As a girl, Veronika loved to paint. In her hair career, a natural sense of color theory helps her keep hair color natural and healthy. For her, an understanding of underlying pigments is critical to avoid over-processing.
An Active Soul & Dog Lover
When not behind the chair, you will find Veronika on the trail. Whether running, hiking, or taking a serene moment to practice yoga. However, you will never see her alone. The loves of Veronika’s life are her two dogs Bobik and Sharik. They love to visit Mt. Charleston together and let nature recharge their batteries.
