Best Philly Hair Salon

Leo Vartas

Colorist + Stylist

I’m a hairstylist with over 16 years of experience. I originally came from Belarus and joined the Architeqt team in 2020.

Before coming to the United States, I worked with some of the most famous fashion magazines in the industry, including Vogue Paris, Marie Claire Spain, and Cosmopolitan Russia, among others. Additionally, I took part in the organization of shows at fashion weeks in Europe and Russia and served as a brand ambassador and educator for the Moroccan-oil Russia team.

I have a deep passion for art and beauty in all its forms. Many people have told me that I have a heightened sense of beauty, and I hope that’s true. In 2013, I completed additional training at the Vidal Sassoon School of Hairdressing in London, and in 2017, I undertook training at the MOROCCANOIL academy in Barcelona.

Most recently, I completed an expedited apprenticeship in dry-cutting under Alexey at Architeqt.

My love of art extends beyond the world of hairstyling. My favorite artists are impressionists, including Kandinsky, Degas, Monet, Matisse, and Soutine. Their works inspire me in my hairdressing career.

I chose Philadelphia as the city to practice my art and inspiration, and I am proud to be a part of the Architeqt Salons team.
