Artistic Director, Level 4AA, Redken Certified Colourist
For Nina, the accomplished Artistic Director and Owner of The Hair Gallery, hairstyling is an art. “It’s my passion and my life,” says the multi-certified, trendsetting stylist, whose memories of
the salon life reach back well before she earned her industry license at 33. Nina has been working as a stylist since the young age of 12 at her mother's salon. She then became an award-winning hairstylist of her own and is proud to make her clients look and feel good every single day. Nina specializes in creating a luxury experience for her clients and ensuring the salon is up to date with all trends and styles.

Senior Stylist, Level 4A, Redken Certified Colourist
“I was around five years old when my aunt had me pull all her grey out of her dark brown hair,” says the veteran stylist, who graduated from the Marvel School in 1966. From that moment, Lucia knew she was going to be a leader in the industry.
Lucia’s professional certifications cover the gamut of the industry. She has been a regular attendee of Redken’s advanced classes for 20 years. She is a Redken Certified Colorist, a certified make-up artist and also has achieved certification in Great Lengths, Hot Heads and Lash Extension.
Having run her own salon for many years, Lucia made the move to The Hair Gallery eight years ago so she could work with her daughter, Artistic Director/Owner Nina.

"As a stylist, I always make sure that I don’t over-compromise a client’s hair, and also that they take home the right products."
