My name is Majlinda and I’m convinced that everyone is born with a talent. Mine is my passion for hairdressing. I was even giving the people in our neighbourhood hairdos when I was seven or eight years old. There aren’t any other hairdressers in our family, although my father did recognise my talent. He made it possible for me to go on a private hairdressing course while I was still at school.
I grew up in the seaside town of Durrës on the Adriatic coast. I was able to work in a salon after leaving school, but the salary was ridiculously low. I knew that I was born for this occupation. Although my family didn’t have the money for me to have my own hairdressing salon.
