Beauty – Detroit, MI

Gina has always been interested in creative expression and constantly changes up her own image to reflect how she feels, which she finds very important when working with her clients. The two driving factors for choosing her career path were showcasing her creativity while positively impacting the lives of others. She loves working with natural textures, specializing in curly/wavy hair or anyone who wants to spend minimal time on their daily hair routine, as well as vibrant colors. She understands and promotes the importance of a hairstyle that suits each clients face/body while also reflecting their personality and lifestyle. When working with Makeup, Gina really loves simplicity, with bold features. Focusing on more editorial styles, Gina also loves teaching her clients about practical makeup for every day looks. ​ Gina started doing hair in 2006 in Macomb County before moving to Ann Arbor in 2013 where she apprenticed at one of the top curly salons, Above Ground, under Cookie Gomez. During those 6 months of apprenticeship she learned specific cutting, coloring, and styling techniques for textures ranging from extremely curly/kinky to extremely straight hair. When Above Ground closed she moved to Serendipity, another top curly salon in Michigan, where she continued to utilize her texture expertise. Certified Pravana Colorist and Balayage Specialist, she has also continued her education directly with other companies such as Matrix, Redken, and Schwarzkopf. In 2016 Gina also completed the Core Beauty Makeup Program at The Multimedia Makeup Academy in Troy. This greatly shaped and honed her skills, providing a new medium for creative expression. ...more
