Johanna, aka, Jo, got her start in the hair world back when she was a young girl, working at her mother’s salon. Growing up, Jo spent countless hours studying how precise and detailed the hair dressers at her mom’s salon were. By the time Jo picked up her first hair dryer at the age of ten, she was creating beautiful, voluminous blow-dry’s and knew her way around a curling iron. Even though Jo has been styling hair ever since she can remember, she graduated from Empire Beauty School in 2016 and received her cosmetology license.
Today, Jo is a lead stylist at a beauty space in New York, where in-between styling hair, she trains others to reach their best potential as hair stylists in this day and age. Jo strives on continuing her education and staying up to date with the latest trends to provide the best service possible, and to also bring each client’s vision to life.
She says, "My main goal is to make sure anyone who sits in her chair leaves looking and feeling beautiful.
Gianna graduated from Capri Institute of Cosmetology at the top of her class. Due to her determination, dedication, and love for her field, she has mastered a wide range of hair styles and techniques. However, her expertise and passion is in bridal and special event hair styling.
Gianna credits herself to always keeping up to date on the latest trends so that she can provide her clients with the exact look they want.
“The greatest part about my job is that I absolutely love what I do. I take such pride in perfecting a style because I know it will make my bride feel special and most importantly, look beautiful. To me, there is nothing better than that.”
With a bridal party of seven or more, these ladies step in and lend a helping hand. They set each person's hair, prepping it and readying it for Britt, Gianna, or Christine to style.
When Britt is unavailable, she calls Gianna, Christine or Jo to step in and help out.
Christine is a freelance stylist who enjoys expressing her talent through the art of hair design. Christine started her professional career at the age of 15 by going to vocational school, where during, she earned her cosmetology license. As the oldest child of four girls, Christine has had plenty of practice braiding, curling, blow drying, and styling her sister's hair. It wasn't long until it felt like second nature and quickly became a passion of hers.
Today, Christine focuses on what she loves, which is styling hair for bride's on their wedding day.
She says, "Each and every style I create is unique and special to the individual. When you do what you love, there is unlimited passion and creativity."
Athena attended Westchester School of Beauty Culture and has been continuing her education in cosmetology ever since. Her love for styling hair started at a young age. Growing up as the youngest to four sisters, Athena always had hair to play with, and plenty of models to spruce up.
At the salon, her focus is directed on hair color, but her admiration for wedding hair styling has drawn her to study the art. Outside of the salon, Athena keeps her attention on the current looks and practices to perfect her work.
"A bride's wedding day is a day that she will always remember. Being part of a team that helps create these memories is a pretty a tremendous thing and is something that I feel a great honor to be a part of."

- Gianna did an exceptional job on my wedding hair. From start to finish she was wonderful to work with. During the trial she was very patient and listened to exactly how I wanted to look. She truly cares about the client and goes above and beyond to ensure satisfaction. She had great ideas and suggestions to add as well. I am so thankful that I met Gianna. She is a breath of fresh air. She is very professional, very sweet, arrives early, is always available for any questions, reliable, organized and a very down to earth person. She makes you feel very comfortable through the whole process. I can't say enough about Gianna and would absolutely recommend her for any occasion! - Carolyn O

- If I could give Christine more than five stars for everything, I totally would! After having done my hair before my wedding (she took me from brunette to blonde without it looking yellow or fake), it was a no-brainer to contract her for my big day. She was 100% professional and made me feel at ease, like my hair and make-up were going to be fabulous, and they definitely were. In addition to doing my hair and make-up, she also did my wedding party (two maid of honors and two bridesmaids) as well as my mother's make-up and we were all on time for pictures. She came up the night before and did my make-up for the rehearsal dinner as well as my sister's hair, which made me feel beautiful the night before my wedding, too!
Christine is so wonderful that when it came time for my sister to plan her wedding day hair and make-up, she became the obvious choice and again, she did not disappoint.
For the quality of work Christine does, the pricing is more than fair, and I am always happy to recommend her to other brides and women looking for a hair and make-up artist. She makes you feel comfortable the entire time, shares amazing ideas you wouldn't think of yourself, and the end result is always gorgeous and stunning. Book her and I promise you will be happy you did! - Toni Ann Steinberg
-My hair was stunning and everything I wanted for my wedding. Christine was such a doll. She was on time and made sure my entire day was perfect! I highly recommend her and always refer her to my friends and family.
- I absolutely LOVED the way my hair came out. I had a simple updo with curls. Usually my hair does not stay with updo's, but it stayed all night! I highly recommend Christine for any type of event. - Laura
Gina graduated with a license in cosmetology from the Head People School of hair design. At eighteen, she dove into the beauty industry with a strong sense of responsibility, team-work and discipline; it wasn’t long until she opened and managed her own salon: A Polished Act. Later in the years, Gina left the industry to raise a family.
Gina is now a mother of four grown children and is back in action building her career back up in hair design.
She says, “I feel complete having had raised my children to the best of my ability, knowing they're out in the world, fulfilling their own dreams, I am back at work fulfilling mine. I love being a part of a wedding day. Whether I get style the hair myself, or assist Britt, it’s a pretty special feeling to help a bride, and the one's she loves look their best on such a big day in her life.”
