Nadia Afanaseva Story bio and life facts
❛ How a young woman from a Russian village of just 200 people became
New York City’s top celebrity master & made her first million by age 28.❜
Best decision of my life
The first success & an unexpected turn
Eight months later, I found myself at the first-ever Russian Lash Competition. I took home two second-place wins for volume extensions and a third-place win for creativity. I was so upset about not taking the first place win that I cried for several nights in a row following the Lash Competition. This was when I set the goal to be the best next time.
I practiced non-stop: I started early in the morning, finished late at night and worked through the weekends. This continued for two years. My passion for what I was doing, as well as my desire to be at the top, helped me cope with the pressure.
In 2013 Moscow hosted a Lash Competition for artists from Russia and neighboring countries. With elimination rounds in the regions, followed by the competition between all the winners in the country’s capital, this was the first event of its kind. I applied as soon as I hear about it! After I won the regional volume extensions round,
I went to Moscow. When I imagined going on stage and how the whole audience would be looking at me, I was so excited! I spent so much time preparing for this event, and I wanted to show everyone there all that I was capable of doing. Almost 40 people took part in the finals.
“If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere.”
