Childhood and family
Gohar was born on July 4, 1993 in the small town of Martuni, located on the shores of Lake Sevan, in Armenia. The eldest son and daughter, Vae and Nunik, were already growing up in the family. Immediately after the birth of Gohar, the Avetisyan family moved to Moscow. At home, the head of the family Smbat Avetisyan worked as a veterinarian, and in the capital he went into business and quickly achieved success in the field of asphalt production and road improvement. The girl’s mother, Naira, a primary school teacher by profession, devoted herself to raising two sons (already in Moscow, Gohar had a younger brother Albert) and two daughters.
Gohar Avetisyan in childhood
Gohar has been fascinated by the art of transforming people since childhood. In her own words, even in elementary school, she added eyelashes and eyebrows to models in glossy magazines, tried to change their hair color, and correct the shape of their lips. Later, Gohar began to secretly take cosmetics from her mother and experiment with her own appearance. Being a fan of the TV show of transformations (“Take it off immediately”, etc.), sometimes the girl was indignant at the final result, it seemed to her that she herself would have done much better.

In her first big interview, Gohar said that she earned her first money for her services when she was only 16 years old, while still in high school. Putting on makeup that changed her young sweet face beyond recognition and made Gohar look like a Hollywood diva, the girl took a picture and published a photo on her page in classmates. This photo was accidentally seen by an unfamiliar girl and wrote to Gohar, asking to do the same make-up. Gohar received 1,500 rubles for her work, after which she wrote on her page that she was a stylist and makeup artist.

Music was another hobby of Avetisyan. The girl studied at a music school and dreamed of a stage, but when she mentioned her dream to her family, her father categorically stated that a girl from a decent Armenian family should choose a more serious profession. Gohar entered the Faculty of Economics of the prestigious RANEPA, and although she studied well, she always knew that she would not work in her specialty. At the university, as well as at school, Gohar had few friends. The girl was shy and often attacked because of her excess weight and nationality.
When Gohar finished her studies at the academy, she was already a sought-after make-up artist among the representatives of the Moscow Armenian diaspora. Realizing that for further development she needed an appropriate document, Gohar went to courses for cosmetologists and makeup artists. Parents, seeing the success of their daughter, although they had previously opposed her choice, especially her father, at that moment resigned herself that she would never be a specialist in the field of economics.

But the education she received later helped the girl open her own business. In 2012, Gohar became the owner of a small (4 sq.m.) studio in the shopping center on Nikolskaya Street, where she began to teach the art of applying makeup, as well as provide makeup services, turning women into beauty queens. In parallel, Gohar began to promote her business on the Internet.
On her Instagram page, the girl regularly published videos on which she worked magic, hiding flaws and emphasizing the dignity of the appearance of women of all ages, sometimes changing them beyond recognition. In an exquisitely furnished studio, located a few steps from the Kremlin, there is also a men’s club, where representatives of the stronger sex can get a magical transformation, as well as a complex for facial skin care.
The unique talent of a very young girl, love for her work, hard work and faith in success soon turned a small business into a real beauty empire, in which a team of professionals works under the leadership of Gohar. From a small studio, she first moved to a room of 150 sq.m., then rented a studio. And for sure this is not the limit, because Goar does not get tired of developing. Every month, at least 100 students come to her make-up school, and the registration for her seminars is packed a year in advance.

Personal life Gohar Avetisyan
The first beloved of a talented business woman did not justify her hopes. The star prefers not to voice the details of this story, only hinting at the betrayal in which she caught him right on the eve of the wedding.
A friend, businessman Vaik Davidovich Martirosyan, helped Gohar not to lose heart and not lose faith in love, with whom friendship grew into a romantic relationship. The wedding of Gohar and Vaik took place in 2016 in Yerevan, in the historical homeland of the young, but family life lasted about 2 years.
At the end of 2018, it became known about the divorce, which, according to some reports, took place at the initiative of Gohar, behind whose soft appearance lies an iron character. Other fans of the former couple hinted at the constant employment of Gohar: she gave all her strength to her favorite work and was rarely at home, which did not quite suit Vagik.

Soon, a number of Telegram channels dedicated to celebrities reported that Gohar broke up with her husband and moved in with her parents along with the baby. However, in the future, new photos of the spouses with a child appeared on Gohar’s Instagram, and Sergey’s parents moved closer to their grandson.
