GINA JONES
LEAD EDUCATOR
Being a stylist for 14 years, Gina loves the fact that no two heads of hair are the same. She understands that what may look good on one skin tone with one eye color,  can look completely different on everyone else. Color knowledge gives the ability to customize each head so not any one is like the other. Each color is carefully formulated to match the individual. 

After taking a year off of work to start a family, she knew she had to up her game and give her clients a good reason to come back. Gina started by taking three classes with our company. Not only was she now obsessed with balayage, but she knew right away that being an educator was something she HAD to do. 

Sharing what she learns (about ANYTHING) is something she's always been very passionate about. Being an educator has helped her return to hair immensely. Not only because she had just learned what balayage was, but the fact that she was now more knowledgeable about what she was doing behind the chair. Every time she teaches, she's also taking the class but from a different perspective. Every teacher and every model has something different to offer, so there's always something new to learn, which is perfect- because in this business, if you're not soaking in everything, you're not growing. That's the only thing to set you apart from the other gazillion hairstylists on this planet - The more you know!
