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?

Yes, with the pretty make-up job, I would have liked to see something creative and lovely done with her natural long hair.

Her makeup looks great, but I'm gonna risk ridicule to express my screaming dislike of this hair cut. She had healthy, natural, versatile, low maintenance long hair. The possibilities were practically endless. Which is why his choice is hard to believe. He gave her a single-style, HIGH maintenance haircut that is an awkward length and texture, with expensive highlights which will need to be reapplied monthly, in a several hour process. Not sure if the loose beach waves are her own hair texture, but it seriously looks like she has a coating of sticky hairspray over the whole razor-cut disaster. This is an example of how years of great haircare can wash down the drain in one afternoon, when your stylist cares more about your "transformation" and their own portfolio than your hair and needs.

I definitely agree with a lot of what you said but I do like her new part. I am a side parter though.. cannot pull off any other part. She also might have wanted lighter hair, but yes that’s a lot of upkeep. The copper in my (naturally) darker hair blends well enough so I don’t go NEARLY as often as other women to get touch ups. By design and my nature to not spend!! It was probably about a year before another cut and copper added. I also love being able to braid mine and can’t pull of shorter hair. So yes I agree lol

That long stringy hair doesn’t work on anyone over the age of 12.

I actually think there IS some photoshopping going on on these, something not quite right about the face on either photo.

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.

This is annoying. Take your glasses off and suddenly you're beautiful. They do it in films all the time.

Sure... I definitely can't imagine that someone with the style of the before picture will start running around as the princess on the right suddenly. Also while she does look good, they robbed her of everything special.
