Observing the successful career of Joro Petkov and the ease with which the 27-year-old hair-dresser is developing within a circle of strong competition, one cannot restrain asking himself the question: How everything started?
His story sounds as a fairy-tale about an American millionaire, but it's true… He started to work in a small shop for hair accessories during his free time while he was studying at school. A nice business woman visited the shop once and she was charmed by the young boy behind the counter, who made her hair in a style that convinced her to buy the hair-clasps offered by him. This woman invited him to start working in her hairdressing salon and so his destiny was changed. "Till then", Joro says "my dream was to study architecture and I was taking lessons in drawing".
He is a person, born with a talent, but he also possesses the ability of knowing how to develop and enrich his talent so that it can become a standard of style and up-to-date fashion. In stead of investing in small and medium enterprise, Joro Petkov has chosen to invest in himself at the beginning of his career, so that he can spread out the fan of his abilities and knowledge. "I started attending various vocational trainings in Bulgaria, but after three years I decided to go to Vienna and to begin an education in "Schwarzkopf" Academy there.
Since then he has been traveling often in Europe and the UK in order to specialize in hair-cuts, selection and mixing of colours, texturing and shaping of the hair; he has been trained to work in a hairdressing salon as well as in fashion photography, shooting of clips and commercials. During this period he was working in different hairdressing salons and at the end, four years ago he opened his own salon – "The Snakes" in Sofia.
His priority is to make each woman feel "special". "At the beginning, my clients showed me pictures from the magazines and asked me: "I would like you to make such hair-style to me". Now they like and choose the hair-style of some of my other clients and ask me to make the same to them. This is the greatest compliment to me"- Joro Petkov says.
