Hair by Katerina
No matter the medium, Katerina has always demonstrated a passion for the creative. Her professional focus is defined by a mix of avant-garde and traditional hair design techniques. She touts significant work as a colorist, often catering to clients specifically requesting her services in color correction and balayage. The inspired mom of two brings to Mali Salon the experience and balanced philosophy she developed earlier in her career at 220 Salon and Pinn Salon.
Motivated to build strong designer-client relationships, Katerina honors each individual’s personal hair care demands. She specializes in color, balayage, and haircuts for all, supplemented by her design services which range from updos to Brazilian blowouts. In addition, Katerina has become a regular on the local wedding circuit by consulting with Bridal Bliss. She also contributes to editorial work, and has been featured in creative photo shoots for Artfully Wed, as well as a recent Fine Arts Inspirational shoot alongside several other talented Portland hair and makeup artists.
The Portland native has certainly learned a thing or two taming her own Greek mane, and is ultra-comfortable addressing the unique challenges of ethnic hair, fine/limp hair, and curly hair. Well-traveled and always on the cutting edge of style, she discovers and integrates global techniques whenever possible to inspire clients. She earned her certificate with the Bella Institute of Cosmetology, and continues her education to discover the latest design modalities and hair care trends. Every product she uses is of the highest quality, and routinely integrates Olaplex (a hair protecting/repairing treatment) into her color sessions. Katerina has received training with Bumble and Bumble, Oway/Organic Way, Pravana, and other top hair care lines, and is certified in Balmain hair extensions.
