Gennaro Dell'Aquila


I'm Gennaro Dell'Aquila, the founder and owner of GA SALONS, a company that now boasts five salons of excellence in fantastic locations across London. Our brand philosophy, idea, goal, and mission is one: ‘Beauty through nature.’ I took my first working steps in Naples, Italy, a city of styles and trends, class, and good Italian taste, where Neapolitan uniqueness and the influence of foreign cultures blend perfectly and create a stimulating and dynamic environment. After a few years of working as a laborer in my father's upholstery workshop, I took the important step of meeting the world of hair at one of the trendiest and most renowned salons in Naples. This began my path of study, listening, research, and practice aimed at personal and artistic growth. My thirst for growth and creative independence led me to seek new challenges, and in 2015, GA was born. Our first salon in Wimbledon set the foundations for what would later become the philosophy of our brand. The discovery of henna at the beginning of my career and the research and constant study of new coloring and neutral herbs represent the foundation and heart of GA. My dedication, passion, and unwavering commitment to quality have made GA SALONS a leader in the hairdressing industry. With salons in Wimbledon, Notting Hill, Chelsea, South Kensington, and Westbourne Grove, GA continues to push the boundaries of hairdressing and bring out the best in our clients' natural beauty. At GA, we cater to some of the most elite and discerning individuals in London. I often travel the world to follow my clients and provide them with the best in hair care. I'm a born leader, and my commitment to beauty and quality is unparalleled. With my vision, dedication, and passion, I have created a brand that is synonymous with excellence, personalized service, and a commitment to enhancing natural beauty

Paolo Cappato


As a Creative Director with over 15 years of experience in the beauty industry, I have developed a discerning eye for what truly enhances natural beauty. I began my career in Italy, working at one of the most prestigious salons on Garda Lake and collaborating with professional models and photographers in Milan. Eventually, my desire to expand my horizons brought me to London, where I now work at GA South Kensington. I take a personalized approach with each of my clients, taking the time to understand their personalities and lifestyles in order to create looks that truly reflect their unique beauty. My expertise in both color and style allows me to craft artistic transformations on every individual who sits in my chair. It is my passion to bring out the best in each and every one of my clients.

Elena Rontini


I began my career in the beauty industry 10 years ago, at the young age of 16. My journey started in a shop in Ravenna, Italy, where I was able to nurture my creativity through training and participation in shows. In 2014, I made the decision to move to London and work at a luxurious salon in Chelsea, as well as for Armani and in fashion shows in Milan and Paris. Today, I am proud to be a Creative Director as part of the GA Team. My extensive experience and passion for the industry have allowed me to hone my skills and bring out the best in my clients. Whether through cutting, coloring, or styling, I am always seeking to create looks that highlight the natural beauty and unique characteristics of each individual

Rosanna Xhafa


I am Rosanna, a Creative Director with a wealth of experience in the beauty industry. With over 15 years of experience under my belt, I have honed my skills in cutting and coloring, and my styles have even been featured in some of the most well-known fashion magazines in Italy and Spain, including Elle and Bazaar. My journey in the industry began in Italy, where I first developed a passion for all things hair and beauty. However, I soon realized that I wanted to expand my horizons and challenge myself further, which is why I decided to move to London and join one of the most prestigious Italian brands. For six years, I worked tirelessly to perfect my craft and learn from some of the best in the business. Now, as a Creative Director, my main focus is on preserving the natural beauty and health of my clients' hair, whether I am creating a bold and edgy look or a more subtle and understated style.
