ABOUT

 

Growing up in Russia, Fatima had her eye on fashion and beauty from a young age, often recreating the hair styles and make-up she’d seen on the pages of the glamour magazines on her friends. Fatima turned that childhood fascination into a tremendous career as a hair and make-up stylist, distinguishing herself as one of the most in-demand stylists in the  industry.

 

Fatima is a 10-year veteran of the television business, styling many of today’s leading news, entertainment and sports personalities across national and local networks.  Her hair styling credits include shows such as the Good Morning America, The CBS Evening News Weekend, The CBS Early Show, CBS This Morning, Inside Edition, THE NFL TODAY, Mike and Juliette and Networks including CNN, FOX, Bloomberg, MSNBC and local WCBS-TV in New York.

 

Three years ago after studying and receiving her certification for professional make-up from the Make-up Designory, Fatima added make-up artist to her resume. Her value has increased, as she is able to create the total package of hair and make-up. During the past three years, she has provided her make-up services for Inside Edition, CNN and Bloomberg.

 

While she is highly accomplished in the television industry, Fatima also has a thriving business away from the screen, working weddings, photos shoots as well as styling an extensive list of private clients including many celebrity clients.

 

Prior to joining the entertainment world, Fatima trained and worked at some of New York City’s top salons, including Frederic Fekkai and Pierre Michele Salon.  It was at Frederic Fekkai where under the watchful eye of Fekkai, Fatima took her training to the next level and developed a keen understanding of hair and texture that has allowed her to develop into the master stylist that she is today.

 

From an early age, Fatima had the unique ability to visualize a look and then transform her friends or clients into exactly what she sees; creating and bringing out the best features in everyone she works with. That childhood ability has grown and been perfected making Fatimaone of the top hair and make-up stylists in the business.
