World’s top hairstylist in demand from the stars

Today, as the world’s top hairstylist, Georgiou, with his endless passion and a positive and optimistic experimental spirit, is in demand by the two major movie empires in the East and West; there must be something special behind it. When asked about the secret of his success, he said that he owes his good fortune to practicing Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) every day.

Georgiou recalled: “In those days when I was successful, I felt that something was missing in my heart.” In 2002, when he was in Australia making a TV commercial and talking to a makeup artist about life and spiritual pursuits, she said she was practicing Falun Dafa and gave him a brief introduction. On first reading through the book Zhuan Falun, Georgiou felt himself resonating with this physical and mental practice. He was drawn to the principles are truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance, and the fact that it is available free of charge. After continuous self-cultivation, he saw improvements, including becoming very healthy, energetic, feeling good, and being able to easily handle various problems.

However, when Georgiou first heard about the persecution of Falun Gong in China, he was shocked. He began to arouse people’s attention to the situation in various ways, including participating in parades and peaceful protests. In the year before the Beijing Olympics, when the global “Human Rights Torch Relay” came to Athens and some cities in Australia, he also served as the host.

Not content with just being a top hairstylist, Georgiou also revealed that he is writing a book and planning an exhibition to share his inspiration from ancient Chinese cultivation culture. He hopes to help people understand the inhumane crimes committed against Falun Dafa in China today. At the same time, he will also show the beauty of cultivation and exciting images.

Finally, when asked about the most challenging part of being a world-famous hairstylist, he replied: “Live in the colorful bubble of fashion, but don’t let it devour you. Be faithful to the heart, be sincere, and don’t be confused by this industry.” Georgiou has a firm belief: “As a person, you should never forget that life is so beautiful.” His positive attitude toward life is a breath of fresh air in the fashion world; his inner peace also flows through his fingers toward each strand of hair.
