What did the stylist not like?
Vladislav Lisovets posted his impressions of the trip to the regions on his Instagram page*. The stylist was shocked by the mashed potatoes and meatballs sold at bus stops, which look like “bird droppings”. They were bought and eaten by his fellow travelers. According to Lisovets, he would not even feed this dish to his dog for fear of “infecting it with the shit-eating virus.”
The man was unpleasantly impressed by the “rough, tough prison mat” used everywhere, as well as the unwillingness of people “to engage in self-development, their culture, appearance, and eat beautifully.” Instead of self-development, the traveler writes, fellow travelers preferred to discuss his appearance and mannerisms: “The most pleasant phrase I heard in my address was:“ Oh, a foreigner.
Judging by the reaction of the stylist, the trip to the regions brought him terrible suffering. He came to himself only in Moscow.
“Hi, Moscow, after such a marginal movie, you are really good, especially at home, with delicious coffee and a view of the flower of love,” Vlad Lisovets finished his appeal to the fans.
The post on the social network immediately caused a violent reaction from Lisovets’ subscribers, but instead of deleting it, the stylist simply closed the comments on the text. After that, the discussion about the impressions of the trip spilled over into the Internet.
Meanwhile, Lisovets’s statements may well fall under Article 282 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Inciting hatred or enmity, as well as humiliation of human dignity on the grounds of belonging to any social group, committed publicly or using the media”). Under this article, you can get up to 5 years in prison.
Where did the stylist come from
Vladislav Lisovets will turn 51 in August, he was born and raised in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, in the family of a train driver and an employee of a chemical laboratory at the local railway. According to his biographers, the guy grew up creatively gifted, studied ballet and music, and later trained as a generalist hairdresser.
With this baggage, in 1994, Lisovets arrived in Moscow, where he got a job as a hairdresser at the Ostankino television center – cutting and dressing employees of television companies and stars invited to various programs. He started with the Agatha Christie group, then worked with Zhanna Friske, Valery Leontiev, Irina Ponarovskaya and Abraham Russo.
The stylist himself does not hide the fact that his career rise is connected with the connections developed at that time among the metropolitan bohemia. As a result, he himself got on the air of TV channels and radio stations with his fashion projects, and also starred in several Russian film projects.
What does Lisovets own
Before the pandemic, the capital’s secular publications invariably presented Lisovets as a successful businessman, owner of the Kontora Hairdressing Salon network. In September 2017, he opened his own art space called LISObon, a coffee shop that regularly organizes exhibitions of young contemporary artists various presentations and filming of TV projects.
Lisovets provides hairdressing services as an individual entrepreneur. In addition, according to OKVED, an individual entrepreneur has the right to engage in advertising, television and radio broadcasting, trade in household products and cosmetics, and also conduct restaurant activities.
This whole LISOSpace is located in the very center of Moscow, on the first floor of a historic building on the corner of Sretenka and Seliverstov Lane. In 2020, employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations conducted a scheduled inspection here and revealed as many as 15 violations – the owner of the enterprise was too carried away by the re-equipment of the occupied premises and completely forgot about fire safety.
This place is well known to followers of Lisovets on Instagram*. The stylist often publishes his photos and videos from Seliverstov Lane.
In addition to individual entrepreneurs, Lisovets owns two companies with the same name “Modern School of Beauty. Vlad Lisovets”, but with different forms of ownership: one of them is an LLC, the other is ANO. Both legal entities, judging by the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, have been providing additional professional education services since 2010, but for some reason do not bring any income to the owner and publish financial statements with zero indicators.
By the way, both companies are still registered at one of the former places of residence of Lisovets – in the apartment of a panel Khrushchev, located in the prestigious Khoroshevo-Mnyovniki metropolitan area.
The stylist himself moved closer to work – on the fifth floor of the same building on Sretenka. Here he occupies a three-room apartment with an area of almost 165 square meters. The market value of real estate is more than 100 million rubles.
