Katja is the Owner of hairdesign by Avantgarde. Growing up in Germany she graduated with a bachelor degree in business and finances and owned and operated several travel agencies in Berlin before Katja decided to move to Naples in 1995.
Opening hairdesign by Avantgarde in 2003 has been a true passion for her. Seeing it come to life with the incredible staff that has chosen to help make it happen has been heartwarming. It has completed her dream of bringing to her guests a true upscale salon and spa experience without expensive resort style pricing. Being able to create an environment where such a fine assemblage of professionals can come together has been a blessing for her.
Working in the beauty industry has been a rewarding and challenging task. She loves seeing service providers come to build and grow. It is not only a great opportunity to work with a unique set of skilled artists employed within hairdesign by Avantgarde but also an honor. Katja is looking forward to seeing Avantgarde reach its full potential and is enjoying the ride just watching Avantgarde continue to grow each and every day.
