Ekaterina Trotsenko 

With over 17 years of hands-on experience in the salon industry, Ekaterina is a skilled hair colourist with a passion for health and healing. A desire to share her expertise with budding professionals from around the world, especially those who are in the midst of building their own careers.

Early on Ekaterina was encouraged by her Russian parents to explore her own creativity. This manifested itself early on when, at the age of nine, she experimented by colouring her own hair for the first time.

 When she was eleven Ekaterina and her family moved from Russia to Australia. Thrown into the deep end, she was faced with learning a new language and adapting to a new culture, but she didn’t let it get in the way of her dreams to work in a salon. By the age of fourteen she was fluent enough to find weekend work helping out at her local salon. With a passion to develop her skills further, days were spent watching the senior hairdressers and wondering: “When do I get to do that?” It was an ambition that would soon be fulfilled.

The next year she finished school and began an apprenticeship in an up-and- coming boutique salon, soon moving across the city to one of the most popular businesses in eastern Sydney.

Ekaterina quickly gained responsibility during her training period, taking on clients and diversifying her skills through makeup school. The contacts she made led to valuable experience on the sets of Australian films, commercials and music videos.

Upon completing her apprenticeship her next big step was becoming a colourist at the award-winning Toni & Guy in Sydney where she contributed to a period of great expansion for the internationally recognised brand. But after a few years in an ultra-competitive and fast-moving environment she knew it was time for a change. Opting to focus her energy on personal growth, she embarked on yet another learning adventure – getting her bachelor of science degree in health to further understand the role nutrition plays not only in hair maintenance, but also to a broader degree, living a more balanced life.

It was during this time of study that Ekaterina realised a deep desire to align her professional journey with a more harmonious and collaborative work environment. When she returned to her career as a colourist she was driven to take advantage of an opportunity to build up and streamline a new salon, helping to make the budding business highly competitive.

In 2017 Ekaterina has operated as lead hair stylist on the international tour for electronic duo Flight Facilities and undertook a life changing move from Australia to Singapore to gain international experience and further challenge herself within a new environment at a new high end salon serving expats.

Now, operating in Sydney and combining all her favourite modalities, Ekaterina offers a unique service of the “ultimate feel good package” of hair, reiki, tailored to you flower essence in an no judgemental, safe environment.

It is not “just” hair, it is all about making someone feel better than they did before they came in – that is the ultimate goal.
