She said she’s very proud to announce she has now been shortlisted in the UK Hair and Beauty Awards (HBA) in the Hair Extensions Specialist of the Year category.
"Due to the war in Ukraine, I had to move back to the UK in order to save my child’s life.
“I knew I was coming back to my second home as I lived in Market Harborough a long time ago - and I know how amazing the local community is,” said Maryana.
“Nevertheless, I had no doubt that I will continue running my hair extensions business, just as I did in Ukraine, as it’s truly my passion.
“I am extremely proud that I am in the HBA final representing Market Harborough."
