From humble beginnings, armed with a vision that would eventually rock the cosmetic industry, Klara Sabotkoski is not a typical beauty professional. She is a forceful woman that combined extraordinary business skills with a unique artistic talent, great intuitions and passion for teaching. With over 25 awards to her name - including “Telstra Business Woman of the Year’ – Klara started her journey in the hair and beauty world 20 years ago, soon becoming an accomplished platform artist, an accredited trainer and a visionary entrepreneur, currently running no less than six companies. Throughout her sensational career, Klara has dedicated herself not only to learning everything about trends and techniques, but also products.
She wanted to understand why consumers and makeup professionals were disappointed with the results they got from typical cosmetic brands. Through her research, she realized that most brands offer products that leave the wearer with an oily application or pigmentations that looked unnatural and flat.
My vision is to create a makeup that modern women want. Intense colours, flawless wear and superior professional results for every woman, every day.
After 4 years of intense preparation, she launched her new line, Klara Cosmetics. The innovative makeup line is a game changer. It is created entirely of colour pigmentation, giving a dramatic and high performance result that truly brings out everybody's beauty.
Other than bringing a disruptive and inspirational approach to beauty, Klara is also committed to be the leader in the industry. She does this by supporting her retailers, providing top level training for the use of her products and staying current on colour palettes and seasonal trends.
Always at the forefront of major cosmetics and fashion events, Klara constantly teams up with famous designers, style gurus and brand partners around the world to share knowledge and draw inspiration for new, addictive concepts of beauty.
Value of Education
For most, transforming an industry would be enough, but not Klara.
In 2010, she opened the Sechi Hair Academy where her highly skilled team train aspiring makeup artists, beauty therapists and hairdressers. Students and Klara Cosmetic’s representatives are inspired by the wealth of Klara’s own experience in their training. This education is the key to the success of the line. The combination of the stellar cosmetic line along with the knowledge of technique, deliver stunning results. In fact, the market has responded so strongly, that Klara has had to increase the number of courses on offer.
What will Klara Sabotkoski do next?
The possibilities are endless, but one thing is certain: as long as she is challenging and recreating the beauty industry’s status quo, things will never be the same.
