Even as a child Natalia was inspired by colour and instinctively understood its creative possibilities, it was only natural that her career would lead her to become such a respected colour technician.
From a small town in Italy Natalia successfully juggled her early life as a hairdressing trainee alongside a full time education but it wasn’t long before her talent was spotted and she became part of the Italian L’Oreal professional team working backstage and with key celebrities.
In 2012 she moved to London to work with Toni + Guy as an educator in their salons and to collaborate in fashion weeks, assisting on iconic shows such as Channel and Tom Ford. Natalia is a qualified Master colour expert for both Wella and L'Oréal and has won awards in their colour trophy and Trend Vision finals.
Natalia’s clients describe her real passion for hairdressing and her ability to blend both creative and classic colour to perfectly adapt to each individual.
