Gina did a beautiful job on my hair for my wedding in November! She was timely, professional and personable – everything you want in a stylist for the day of your wedding. My hair was styled in in curls and down but lasted all day and night without “falling out.” She also did 6 bridesmaids, my mother in law and my mom – which required her to work with a variety of styles and hair textures. Everyone in my bridal party loved their hair and found Gina to be very friendly and talented. I would recommend Gina to any bride looking for a hair stylist in Chicago. She was very kind, efficient and accommodating to everyone in my bridal party- especially me! Thank you, Gina – Stephanie U
I’ve been going to Gina for about 13 years now, she is the BEST! She really listens to what hair style I want and gives me great advice with what hairstyles will work best for my face shape! She is a great hairstyles, very friendly, & personable. Gina is a one stop shop. I can get my haircut, styled, purchase hair products and purchase accessories & talk about the latest trends, all with a great time! I love watching her Youtube channel. I can style my hair at home while watching her tutorials. Gina has a great blog with lots of style and hair tips! I moved from Chicago to Wisconsin and tried out a couple of hairstyles locally but was always disappointed. The trip for me is worth it! I always leave looking great and feeling great! – Sopheany H.
Gina has been my stylist for over 10 years, I get countless compliments on my haircuts, and anytime I go out she styles my hair in some new updo or artistic idea she has. Recently she talked me into doing a Keratin treatment which has helped keep away the frizz and slight curl my hair has in the summer. It is so easy to blow dry now and looks so healthy! I love it!! You will not be disappointed, she is the BEST! Not only can she cut and style your hair she has a great collection of jewelry and accessories too. I always leave her feeling inspired and beautiful. – Kelly L
Gina visited my home to provide me some fashion consulting for the fall season with focus on outfits to wear to an upcoming vacation trip to New York. Together, we went through my closet and Gina helped me to put together some great outfits that I wouldn’t have thought of on my own. She provided me her insight on what the current trends were and showed me new ways to wear various pieces. Gina also provided me ideas on how to best fit my body type so that I look my best. She worked with me also on accessorizing… again, pulling jewelry & shoes from my already existing collection and showed me new ways to pair them with outfits and took pictures so that I would have something to reference once she left. Gina has a true gift and passion for fashion. Whenever I had a question about a piece combination, Gina confidentially explained what items worked together (based on color and/or style) and was also able to make modifications to outfits that I was not 100% comfortable with. Everyone can benefit from wardrobe consulting. It is SO worth taking the time and making an appointment with Gina! Her fresh perspective creates excitement for what’s already in your closet when you would otherwise say “I have nothing to wear!” – April K.
Gina is AWESOME! I used her and another stylist for my large wedding party 10/2012. She did FANTASTIC WORK and I simply LOVE how my hair looked. She also did my engagement session hair. If I ever need my hair done for anything BIG ever again this will be the woman I use. She is friendly, responsive to client’s critiques AND she is a dog lover (her dog is WAAAY adorable BTW). Don’t let her “glam” style make you assume she is too edgy. She can do edgy, trendy, classic conservative…….she can do ANYTHING. I have fine thin flat and lifeless hair. I did not want it plastered to my head like a football helmet which is what they usually do with my hair as if won’t hold curl and has no life. WELL….she exceeded all of my expectations and made my hair soft, full, and beautiful! I don’t know how she doesn’t it!! – Shannon Z.
Gina has done my hair for two weddings – one when I was a maid of honor and then for my own. Both times, my hair looked awesome and stayed the entire night. My bridesmaids were THRILLED with Gina (and her assistant) too! Together, they finished hair for 14 girls (10 bridesmaids, 1 bride, 1 MOB, and 2 flower girls) in less than 5 hours. My bridesmaids kept calling the hair and makeup team the “Dream Team!” They were all exceptionally efficient, friendly, fun, and professional. The diversity of styles amongst the girls was awesome, too! Gina can really do anything you want. We had several girls describing a style, which they matched perfectly – while others showed pictures or chose from Gina’s wide array of styles in her look book. I also had hair treatments (a clear shine) and a hair cut from Gina. She knew exactly where to cut so my hair length would be perfect for my wedding day. I received so many compliments on my hair as well as my bridesmaids hair. Gina really does go above and beyond. She is always an email away, as is her assistant. Gina found me a hair piece that was exactly what I wanted when she was in NYC. She even sent it to me via next-day mail so there was no ‘guesswork’ involved in the process. I can’t say enough good things about Glamhairus! – Elizabeth S.
Wow! Gina is an all-around impressive hair stylist. After having moved across the country, I stopped a lady with beautiful hair at Target to ask where she’d gotten hers done, and she referred me to Gina. She was quick to return my call to set my initial appointment. For a busy stylist with an established clientele, I was pleasantly surprised by her eagerness to fit me into her schedule. At my first appointment, she was punctual and took time to ask me about my hair – my routine, how I typically style it, questions I’d never gotten from any other stylist before. It was obvious she really wanted to give my a style that suited me. I asked for the same basic cut I most frequently get (long layers, some shaping and razoring for texture/volume), but she was able to do it better than anyone has done before. I returned to Gina for highlights a week later after having going 7 months without color. I wanted to ease into coloring again, and Gina was able to brighten my hair so beautifully! She added color throughout the roots yet also recolored parts of the ends (a first time anyone’s ever suggested this for me). It’s never looked so natural yet vibrant before! If you want a stylist who’s extremely talented, professional, AND interested in giving you the style/color you want, I HIGHLY recommend Gina! – Stacy C.
This review is long overdo! I have been going to Gina for years to style my hair. When it came to selecting the right person to style my hair for my big day, that decision was easy. Glamhairus! What I wasn’t expecting were all the other amazing services Glamhairus offered. I ended up using them all! I had a destination wedding in Hawaii and a wedding reception in Chicago. Unfortunately, I couldn’t bring Gina to Hawaii but she still styled me for my big day. The Glamhairus team also took care of ALL my needs for our wedding reception in Chicago. I was on the fence about purchasing a second dress ($) for the reception, Gina suggested using the same dress and changing the hair, makeup and accessories. I am so grateful for the suggestion. Hair – Although I couldn’t bring Gina to Hawaii, we still did a hair trial where Gina took detailed pictures and detailed explanation. The stylist in Hawaii was so impressed and grateful for Gina’s attention to detail and I did not have any anxiety about my hair. The stylist also loved the hair accessory that I purchased from Glamhairus. She was showing everyone else at the salon. At our reception in Chicago, Gina created a totally different look. I felt so flawless and beautiful! For this look my hair was swept low at my neck and Gina found the perfect hair bling to complete the look. I absolutely loved my hair! Keratin – I have thick frizzy hair. Going to humid Hawaii made me nervous. Of course, Gina had a solution for this too. I had my first Keratin treatment done about three weeks before my wedding day. Not only did my hair not frizz on the big day, I was able to wash and go for our whole honeymoon. I have been hooked on Keratin ever since. Makeup – I used a Glamhairus makup artist for my trial in Hawaii. I wasn’t going to do a makeup trial in Chicago for my Hawaii wedding day but I’m so happy I did! She helped me verbalize makeup looks I like and don’t like. This made my ability to communicate with the artist in Hawaii so much easier. I always thought I preferred individual lashes over strip lashes. After the trial I learned the opposite to be true. I am so grateful I did that trial with Glamhairus. For our reception in Chicago the artist was able to use a different lip color and a more dramatic eye. This helped me achieve the different look I was wanting for our wedding reception. I loved my makeup that day! I felt beautiful and received so many compliments. Accessories – Can we say one-stop shop? I showed Gina pictures of earrings, bracelets, purses and hair pieces I liked. At the hair trial she helped me select the perfect accessory for each look. I have no idea how she found EVERYTHING I liked but she did. It was like having a personal shopper for my wedding day. I wanted two different looks for the destination wedding and the local wedding in Chicago, and I really feel like the accessories really helped me achieve this. My hair piece was so unique. I still have her shop for special pieces for me. My husband and I both found Glamhairus the easiest company to work with throughout the whole planning process. Gina is very detail-oriented and very clean in her explanations. We highly recommend Glamhairus for your special day! p.s. I also used Glamhairus for our wedding shower and Bachelorette party – Tracy O Gina was amazing from start to finish! First, she not only did my hair, which was amazing, but she helped to coordinate my makeup artist, Suzy!!! Additionally, she was so accommodating coming to my home for the trial and agreeing to driving to New Buffalo area in MI where I got married! Gina has a glam squad at her finger tips and will make you feel beautiful on your big day! I highly recommend Gina and her team! P.S. She is so great I have gone to her a couple of times since my wedding to get my hair done for special occasions! She is just fantastic! – Lauren J Gina and the Glamhairus team were amazing to work with for our wedding. Gina helped me more than just in the big day but throughout the whole process! She was extremely flexible and thoughtful of what I was looking for. She is also great company and adds a lot of fun to your day! All the girls (9 bridesmaids, 2 moms and an officiant) loved their hair all day long! – Emily K Gina did my hair and bridesmaid’s hair the day of my wedding. Very lovely!! I’ve been going to her to cut my hair ever since – Laura H I was initially nervous when I booked with Glamhairus because I found the company online and no one I had known had ever used their services yet. Come to find out the reason for that is because Gina had just branched out and started her own business which is now called Glamhairus. Gina was incredible and the makeup artist she paired with me was fabulous! I loved the trial and my wedding make-up was perfection! So very pleased with this company 🙂 – Chandra R Gina was wonderful to work with! Since she’s not based out of a salon, she’s super flexible. She was able to come to my house for my hair trials and she even scheduled my hair trial around a dress fitting so I could see my whole look together before our wedding day. The day of, everyone’s hair looked great and Gina even worked ahead of schedule! We were able to leave the hotel to take photos earlier than planned. Susie was our makeup artist. She also did a fantastic job. During my trial, she talked to me about pros/cons of airbrush vs regular makeup (I was clueless). She helped me pick the option that was best for me and I looked flawless the day of! Overall, I received a ton of compliments on my hair and makeup at the wedding, but also on all my bridesmaids’ hair and makeup! I would definitely recommend! – Caroline S I can’t enough about Gina! She is truly a gifted stylist with a passion for her art! I have going to Gina for MANY years and there is nobody else I would have trusted on one of the biggest days of my life! From my cuts to my highlights now to my Keratin treatments I never fail to get a compliment on my hair. She even makes my crazy frizzy curl look AMAZING! – Karen Butler Want a sure fire way to look gorgeous and feel like a cross between a goddess and a princess on your wedding day? Contact Gina at Glamhairus! I am receiving SO MANY compliments on my wedding day look which Gina crafted from head to toe! She not only advised me on hair but accessories as well. Her professionalism and flexibility were fantastic and made a nervous bride extremely calm and peaceful! I will always look at my wedding pictures and be thankful to Gina! I will also be using her talents and exquisite taste for all my future fun events! Thank you Love – Kate Keegan
