Where are you from? How long have you lived in the Valley of the Sun?
I was born and grew up in the beautiful country of Croatia. Situated in Southeast Europe, Croatia is to the east side of the Adriatic Sea, to the east of Italy. I move to Phoenix 16 years ago - I love it here!
What services do you provide at Millennium?
I specialize in a variety of salon services, such as Woman’s Cuts, Balayage, Highlights & Color, Extensions, Blowouts, and Spray Tanning. [Ivana is currently taking on new customers.]
Which is your favorite service or technique and why?
I love getting creative with highlights and hair extensions. I would say that they are my specialties. My goal is for people to be the best version of themselves.
Tell us something few people know about you.
As part of my heritage, I grew up dancing Kolo, a traditional Croatian folk dance. [Don't ask Ivana to perform for you - she will be quite embarrassed.]
What would you do if you weren’t a stylist?
I cannot image not being a stylist, but if I wasn't behind the chair, I would probably be a nanny. I love kids and look forward to having children of my own someday.
What’s your secret talent?
I make delicious crepes - especially one made with Nutella.
