WHAT LEADS YOU INTO THE WORLD OF BEAUTY-INDUSTRIES?
SVETLANA KOLMAGOROVA: Each master has his own story of how he came to this profession. I have always tried to care for my hands. At school I also liked to repaint nails in different colors, to make simple designs. A little later, my friends on the student’s desk asked to make them cover with designs. And as soon as the fashion for artificial nails came, I ran to the building. I really liked this case, and in 2006 I went to a training center. I did not intend to work in this specialty, because at that moment my career was developing completely in a completely different field of activity. And nails became my hobby as planned. I began to make nails myself and friends. But after 1 year, I realized that my hobby brings me pleasure and more income than my main job. And most of all I liked to learn and give customers the joy of quality procedures. My clients became more and more, and there was less and less space … And then I was already combining work in my own office and teaching as a nail modeling instructor. But the more I studied, the more I wanted to work on the bugs! I began to choose training centers more carefully, since I needed exclusive knowledge. I had so many diplomas that it seemed difficult to surprise me. But I found my teacher and thanks to our tandem I continue to be inspired by my favorite work and strive to do my job even better.
WHAT IS YOU INSPIRED AND MOTIVATED IN YOUR PROFESSION?
SVETLANA KOLMAGOROVA: My students. This inspiration is like a perpetual motion machine: the teacher inspires the student, and the student inspires the teacher.
SVETLANA KOLMAGOROVA: I don’t create idols for myself. But there are important and significant people for me who help me to achieve my goals and desires. This is my family, my parents, who give me a good example. My teacher, Victoria Klopotova. She always supports me in all undertakings. My children, they are my guardian angels. And my friendly team is the key to successful work.
WHAT FOR YOU STALEKS PRO?
SVETLANA KOLMAGOROVA: These are opportunities in which the concept of quality is embedded in everything, from appearance (design, packaging, etc.) to internal content (composition, alloy, sharpening, form, etc.)
WHICH ACHIEVEMENTS ARE YOU PROUD?
SVETLANA KOLMAGOROVA: My greatest achievement was the colossal work on myself! My perseverance and dedication helped to achieve success. I believe that any achievements that a person can be proud of begin with personal victories over themselves – with their laziness, fear, uncertainty, etc.
WISH ANYTHING BEGINNER MASTER?
SVETLANA KOLMAGOROVA: Never stop dreaming about something bigger and better, even if today it seems unreal. Be patient, because sometimes the most cherished desire is not easy to achieve. Do not be afraid to ask, because it’s scary not to learn something. Choose in your environment people with whom you want to take an example. Do not stop believing in yourself and your abilities. And remember, 50% of success is a quality tool!
