“I like connecting with people,” Oksana says. “They become family.”
Okana recently opened Oksana’s Hair Cut Studio just north of Piggyback BBQ. Facing Wisconsin Avenue, the studio is on the corner of an apartment complex.
Oksana emigrated from Russia to Canada and then to the United States. She worked as a kindergarten teacher in Russia and Canada before attending cosmetology school in Calgary. She moved to Whitefish a few years ago to be closer to family.
In Russia, she worked alongside her twin sister in the classroom. She loved working with the students and their parents.
She chose cosmetology because she knew she wanted to work with people in an artistic way. After moving to Montana, she graduated from Pela Beauty Academy.
“I love people and making them beautiful,” she said.
Oksana draws on her mom’s wisdom when working with her clients — you treat people well and that’s how they’ll treat you.
“That’s always been my motto,” she says.
