Gina began her career 30 years ago in London at Morris Masters International. After completing courses in Europe she moved to the Metropolitan Area to continue her education with Vidal Sassoon and Toni & Guy where she completed advanced cut and color courses. With all her training Gina then began her "real life" hair styling experience in northern Virginia. Over the past 25 years, Gina has been on staff in several well respected, high-profile salons in the area. The invaluable experience she gained provided her with the basis to open her own salon in 2007, Gina's Serenity Salon and Spa of McLean.
Excellent training and years of experience are valuable in the hairstyling profession. But Gina's most valuable attribute is her ability to "hear" her client's style ideas and then translate them into a beautiful hairstyle. Many stylists say they listen to their clients, but Gina truly "hears" what her clients are expressing about their styling needs. She takes time getting to know each of her clients because she has a sincere desire to provide each client with an up-to-date hairstyle that will enhance their overall appearance.
Gina is well known for her hair coloring and highlighting skills and has even taught other stylists color correction. In addition she has continued her education by going to color and Japanese/Brazilian straightening classes and seminars annually.
The atmosphere of Gina's Serenity Salon and Spa is much like Gina herself calm and relaxed. One of the things Gina learned from working in other salons was that stylists are often overbooked and this leads to a rushed feeling within the salon. Clients may even feel ignored because there is so much activity that the stylist can't focus solely on them. Gina enjoys working in a friendly, comfortable, stress-free environment. She does not overbook herself so clients are assured to have her full attention along with a relaxing cup of tea!
Gina's early education and continuing education along with her natural talents have earned her a legion of followers from all over the Washington area. Whether you are looking for an entirely new look or a quick trim, Gina is eager to meet you and show you why she is one of the premier hair stylists in McLean!
