A new start in Greece
His love for Greece in combination with his subversive personality leads him to take a step forward in the Greek beauty industry. In the mid-70s’ he established his first hair salon at Hilton’s area collaborating with Dino. The Greeks response was outstanding. His talent, quality and innovative ideas was much appreciated by Greek women. Finesse, elegance and the most up to date hairstyles was their trademark. The stores who attended on this trend have rapidly growing. The core of this attempt was Glyfada’s area store (I. Metaxa Street) where Athens’ celebrities and high society at that time gathered.
The continuation of a successful career
In 1995 the two pioneer artists decide to follow separate paths. Gino continues his successful career in hairstyling highlighting the passion talent and knowledge in fashion trends. His first hair styles collection ever, was called “minimal”. This collection marks its new art influenced by chic street style. In a period of time where women’s personal time was valuable, he introduced his next hair style collection which called “fast forward-ff” following Greek woman’s pulse. His salons renewed and elevated so as to fit perfectly Ginos’ and partner’s trends. One of the most iconic and powerful hairstyle collection was the “Simply Gino” as it shows that everything is simple hair, colour, styling, just Gino.
His philosophy is always more than hairstyling. Hence he has been carrying out an idea called “g more than hair” which was in his mind for years. In this project shows that the gino hairandmore temperament is not just being a commercial hair salon but it is into the artistic bigger picture. Music was added as an essential aspect in every salon. At the time he invented the afterhours project, he also built up the Gino Artistic team for the hair collection shows. Invests in the training of its staff with seminars of its own trends. He believes in the hospitality and gives the best customer experience with the highest quality services.
