Vladimir
Svraka

Creative Director and Senior Technician

Passion for a challenge has shaped Vlad’s career. He enjoys the complex colour changes and corrections that can flummox some stylists, and he perfected his cutting skills in Berlin’s edgy Mitte district. These talents have seen him style in editorials for leading magazines, such as Cosmopolitan and InStyle, and in commercials for global brands, including Audi and T-Mobile. However, it’s Vlad’s ability to tune into his clients’ individual styles that shapes his approach in the salon. From training as a hairdresser, barber and wig maker in Hungary, he’s progressed through leading salons in Malta and Germany, before moving to London where he became a cutting expert at Rush and L’Oréal colour expert.
