Gina has a vision of infusing fashion and innovation to create cute and modern hair styles that fit her client’s personality and lifestyle. Using a French cutting technique designed by Cartsen Wilms allowed Gina to develop her natural talents as a hairstylist. Gina perfected her technique while under the influence of profound wisdom from some of the industry leading educators at the Carsten Institute.
When it was time to move from the classroom and into the exotic world of hairstyling, Gina found a place that would allow her to explore her creativity at the Atlantis Salon and Healing Spa. With her desire to grow as an artist, she continued to study new techniques while building a reputation as a precision stylist.
For six months Gina refined the art of precision hair cutting under the steady hand of Carolyn Vinck. As the Creative Director of hairstyling, Carolyn also shared with Gina the science of the Goldwell Coloring system. Gina polished off her educational portfolio by attending the Goldwell Training Academy and acquiring multiple certifications in the latest hair-coloring techniques.
After a successful stint at Atlantis, it was time to take her career to the next level. In May of 2004, Gina launched the Creations by Gina Hair Salon in Phoenix. However, even with the launch of her new business, she knew that to be successful she must continue to study and push the creative boundaries.
Over the last 7 years, Gina has taken trips to the ISSE International Salon and Hair Expo in Long Beach California. While at the EXPO, she enrolled in several training classes and seminars involving both discussions and hands on training in the latest national and international hair styles and techniques. After every trip, Gina returns to Phoenix with a renewed passion and an arsenal of skills that’ll blow your mind.
