Zhuk was born in Brest, in Belarus. Even though none of his family members were in the beauty industry, he decided that his future lay there and began pursuing his dreams wholeheartedly. When he was just 18, he officially became a hairdresser and spent the next 5 years building up his experience in Brest.

However, he felt like he was stagnating. That’s why he decided to shake up his life. Zhuk moved to Moscow. He was so dead-set to improve his skills that he sold his car just so he could set his roots down in the Russian capital.

He went all-out in Moscow, and at one point he was even working three jobs as a hairdresser during the economic crash of 2008, according to 24smi.org. That’s when he began to fully live his philosophy of living to the max.

Now that’s the sort of discipline and energy that gets you right on the path of success. And that’s exactly what happened to Zhuk who rose to great heights in the beauty industry.

the main take away from all these pix is that the "after" photo shows the woman smiling.. It make anyone smile to see themselves looking nice.

I like this one. The person is still recognizable and the makeup doesn't look like a ton of putty.

Eventually, he opened up Zhuk.Studio and his very own spa, La Lubie. He’s won numerous awards for his skills and has hosted a handful of TV shows focused on beauty transformations.

Zhuk has extensive knowledge of the TV industry and was even a model at one point. He currently lives together with his wife, model Anastasia Belochkina, whom he married in 2019. They have a child together. Other than that, Zhuk keeps his private life private.

I don't understand the comments that are saying that this post is telling women that they aren't good enough. Yes, putting on a sh*t load of makeup and telling people that they need to look like that is not okay, but have you considered what these women felt like after their makeover? Beauty is not just about looks, it's also a way to feel more confident and empower yourself. Look, she looks a lot happier in the after pic. Maybe it's the lighting, but who knows? If putting on some makeup makes the woman happy, then who are you to deprive her of that joy?

Her bangs look a little too short to be swept to the side, how’d they do that?

The way her hair is styled makes it look like a too-big head on a skinny neck- not the most flattering photo.
