Yaniv Katzav is an Israeli award-winning hair and makeup artist.
Yaniv Katzav is seriously humble. He will not tell you about any of the awards, campaigns, or celebrities of his 19-year career. (But you can find them in a web search.)
Having discovered his passion for “the art of making people beautiful and happy” at the age of just 15, he immediately went to school for it and worked his way to the top. Now, Yaniv has developed numerous worldwide campaigns, been showcased in a variety of international publications, and has received global fashion awards for his creations. His work is featured in editorial, video, commercial, magazine covers, runway, print, fashion, television, and worldwide beauty pageants. He was even featured as a hair and makeup artist for the 2014 Academy Awards.
In Israel, he is head of hair and makeup for celebrity weddings and event magazines, has made the “Top Hair and Makeup Artists” list, and has an established salon.
Yaniv constantly rises to the self-imposed challenge of reinventing himself in order to come up with new concepts, ideas, and visions.
Yaniv’s Shiny Hair Strategy
If you want your hair to be shiny and fabulous, two days before your big night, mix one egg yolk with two spoons of olive oil and one tablespoon of honey. Wear it for at least two hours and afterwards, wash your hair twice with a little bit of conditioner and then finish by rinsing with cold water. It sounds like a lot of work, but your hair deserves it.
Yaniv’s Favorite Beauty Product
My favorite products to work with belong to “Label. M“. I love how soft and delicate they are, and I know that the results will always be nothing short of perfect.
