Hairdresser Irina Marzan spoke about how advised Zhanna Friske to leave the “Brilliant” what saved Boris Moiseev, and what nights talking on the phone with Sergey Zverev.
Twenty years, she makes beautiful the brightest stars of show business, politicians and their wives. Hairdresser Irina Marzan can find an approach to even the most demanding customers. For many years she worked at fashion Weeks in Moscow and abroad, combed the leading Song of the year, came up with images of the actors shooting the clips.
– I didn’t choose the profession, and she me, – Irina speaks. – I was 13 years old when I first made the model a haircut, decided to get rid of the long braids. All refused to accept me – they say is wealth you need to leave. And only one master, “fear Not, I will make you the most beautiful.” I was so touched by this phrase that I still use it. Then I watched every gesture, the movement of the hairdresser…Soon want to repeat. Found the first victim of my experiment. It was in the pioneer camp. Offered girlfriend, she agreed. Wet head in the lake, found stationery scissors…then I was unstoppable.
Irina, who was your first star?
Honestly if he says that my friend and teacher Sergey Zverev. Escaped to Moscow from the provinces, I at the recommendation came to Dolores Kondrashova. In those days it was the most prestigious salon of the capital with the most refined audience and highest pricing. Zverev worked there, but during a different shift. We saw each other every day, and I wanted to be with him and observe his work. When the first salon under his name, he took me out of the team Dolores. To the question “why me?” the answer was short: “who else?” Since then we became inseparable. One study, Championships, training, trips to other cities with a demonstration of collections of hairstyles. It was nice that my work on the podium applauded just as Zverev. Understood each other perfectly. Only recently remembered…And he said, “You’re my only student!” And Sergei is my inspiration. Could spend hours watching to see how he does. Now not so often communicate. But if you meet – can’t let go, to stop talking as a family. By the way, recently, he made an interesting offer…
Zverev you were acquainted with celebrities?
Yes, thanks to him and working with him, I got a lot of stars. First he told me Aziz, then Irina Ponarovskaya. With Song of the year people began to appear. Because for many years I have created images of the concert leading angelina Vovk and Evgeny Menshov. Then I met Natalia Vetlitskaya. We are bound by years of friendship and work with videos, but also for the stage. Natalia came to the salon, loved to come to my cottage. She liked these places with lakes in the suburbs, and soon she bought a house nearby. The arrival of Natasha to me was an outstanding event. As they say, talented person is talented in everything. This is about her. I was a witness of how she is able to guide the process. Come to the video shoot. And it all sends! Dictates how to paint, brush, clothe, and even highlight.. To video “eyes the color of whiskey” I put to her easy romantic curls, and “Learn me the stars” – a sleek geometric hairstyle. Its peculiarity: it is always the artist, and all around performers. By the way, Vetlitskaya and introduced me to Suleiman Kerimov.
Difficult to work with him? Be serious man!
Yes you are! He is so intelligent, pleasant, polite. Came to his office and was amazed at how Suleiman courteous with his staff, and respectful to those who serve him. In General, men work quite easily. Trust one hundred percent – not only do I appreciate as a stylist, but also as a woman. Among my male customers is kind and soft with Boris Moiseev. Remember, talking about people from show business, emphasizing the difficult foundations in this area, often saying: “Ira, we’re saints!” And once I just saved. I arrived at the hotel “Russia” with “the Song of the year” and the guard would not let “No passport will not pass!” And I waited as the stylist for the leading. And then passed by Bob. Seeing me, exclaimed, “what are You doing here! Ira, as all the country knows, except you! It’s Marzan! Without it, the concert started”. And I was allowed. Kohl Baskov also love. Each time greeted with the words “my favorite Marzan!” When it is combed, gave headphones with the player, where he played his new songs. Chatted with him about everything: the diets, concerts, family. We have not seen him in a few months, and then come to a friend’s wedding, and he is on stage spotted me among the guests, came down to embrace and into the microphone to say a special “my favorite Marzan!” Here he is Sunny man.
Men in the hands of a master stylist, certainly give women?
It happens. Many have already served the whole family. Often came together Igor and Olga Steep. I can say this: the energy of the talent will not hide. When I saw Igor, stopped breathing…I had to hold the instrument a little stronger, so not dropped out of hands from excitement. And we with Olga during my work were discussing women’s issues, advice shared. Valentin Yudashkin I met through his wife, Marina. Not everyone knows that she is in the profession of hair stylist. In 1987 I got to the Marina in the chair. She was congratulated with the upcoming wedding and asked “Who is your fiancé?” To which Marina replied: “About it soon the whole world will know!” By the way, the famous Valentin was in tandem with his wife. Later was invited to work on the shows of Valentin Yudashkin, brush models. Marina generated ideas, and we fulfill them. Dima Malikov I have cut and placed in his famous, if slightly moved by the wind, Kara. Recommended wife Elena and daughter. Love this beautiful family.
Often, satisfied customers become your friends?
Almost always. For example, angelina Vovk. Is love and relationship shower for life! The divine man and my inspiration. Angelina is always the main guest on any my holiday – whether it is birthday or wedding. One day she called to shooting his anniversary to channel as a guest. How many flattering words I heard all over the country! I am very grateful for everything.
How else are you thanked?
I remember well the case with Sofia Rotaru. Shook me this time. At a concert backstage. Sofia Mikhailovna was praying quietly before the show and then noticed me – I was pregnant. Rotaru walked toward me with a sincere smile: “the Ira today with his stylist, but I remember your Golden hands! Very miss them”. She gently hugged me, like sharing his energy, has said so many kind words and wishes. Announced her exit, and she, holding my arm, talking to wishes. That’s when you realize what it means to be a real star – her big heart enough for everyone.
Which celebrities were you really impressed?
Each star left its mark in my life. For Example, Alsu.Introduced her to producer my friend Tanya Bulanova. I worked with Lil Wayne on the set of the video for “Winter sleep”, did the styling in the style of Lolita – gentle maiden, modest. I was struck by the incredible wisdom and education of very young Alsou. All it bothered the Soviets, but she cautiously took it all. No word in spite of! Full of dignity and diplomacy. She will never criticize someone else’s opinion. Seemed to be this humility has its own understanding of life and of all that is happening! This gentleness distinguishes it from others. Its simplicity struck Lo. Combed it only once, but remember forever. Joked, chatted. My question about how she got so thin, he replied: “to be in love!” Surprised Christina Aguilera – it’s not a drop of star. A man of few words but he agreed with everything I proposed, “Ira, if you want so do it. Professional here is you, not me”.
It’s nice when you listen… what do you recommend Zhanna Friske?
I remember she told Jeanne that she was very different from the group “Brilliant”, and have her sing solo. Spectacular, gorgeous, strong and gentle at the same time. She took it as a compliment. And after a couple of months really separated. I think it is certainly a coincidence. But still it was nice when she told me this news. Near Frisco always has so many men, but even the smile didn’t hide the bitterness in his eyes, felt the sadness and loneliness. It is a pity that happiness Zhanna was very short.
With such a wealth of experience to share knowledge. Do you have disciples?
Of course! I teach. Welcome to my salon at Varvarka street, which is right next to red square. I like to see the fruits of their labors. And she is still learning. Because fashion does not stand still.—
What is fashionable now?
Fashion has changed, but slowed down. I Zverev said, “Stick to the classics, and you will always be in fashion” It is so! Without deep knowledge of the foundations it is impossible to create creativity. In the 90 years we imitated the period from the 40’s to the 70’s, the “zero” – all this is combined, mix in eclectic styles, experimenting in forms and color. But the second decade, the fashion was to teach us to look within, to discover his “I”. Now she dictates and directs. In the trend! Everything looks good on you. We return to naturalness. But harder steel colors and shades. Three-dimensional perception of color by stretching and variation of colors.—
Now so many colors of paints, cosmetics – the whole expanse for young girls.
Girls like this give one piece of advice. Among the variety of opportunities is not sufficient at all. Do not rush to make yourself older! Enjoy your youth in a natural form. Do not fix what is not broken. Beautiful posture, from the hair open face and sincere smile will make you more attractive!
