There's something about knowing that you look great that makes you feel great too. The boost in one's self-esteem from a good haircut or a nice outfit cannot be underestimated, therefore a good stylist can play an important part in a person's general happiness.

Belarus-born stylist Yevgeny Zhuk is one of the very best in the business, having moved to Moscow, Russia to open up his own salon. He offers haircuts and makeup that bring about astonishing transformations, giving a woman that extra glamour that she might otherwise save for only for holidays and special events. As well as having his own beauty salon, he's also a host for several beauty-transformation TV shows, which allows him to access equipment and a team of other field specialists in order to achieve some of the more extreme transformations.

Yevgeny is now a highly sought-after stylist with his 'restart' project finding fame on Russian television, transforming women almost beyond recognition. Scroll down to see some of his best work below, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Bored Panda has contacted Yevgeny for further comments on his project

All these women are beautiful anyway. Why can’t that be the message? Why send the massage that they can only be queens under layers of make up? How is that any different to photo filters and photoshop?

First picture is better - wild and beautiful. On the second picture she looks younger but has lost her uniqueness.

It implies that these women just had makeup and restyled hair but I am not buying it..even if on his shows he does like face lifts and new teeth etc like on a pic further down and I know makeup can do a lot but all these pics or at least some have been photoshopped coz the lady above has got a thinner face in second pic..a lot thinner and jaw line

That first picture is the bomb. I'll bet she's got some stories to tell and the slight smile is so much more interesting than the pre packaged Betty Crocker boring photo that 10,000 other women couldn't wait to get.

I wish they were smiling in the before photos. I think the difference wouldn't be as great then and you'd be comparing the same face.

Helena Rubinstein said, no such thing as an ugly woman, only a lazy one. I truly beleive that. These make overs are fantastic.
