OWNER & ART DIRECTOR
Award-winning hairstylist Gennaro Dell’Aquila began his distinctive journey in Napoli, Italy at the young age of 16. After refining his skills at a premier hair academy in the fashion capital Milan, he made a significant impact in London, primarily in the high-end salon settings of Chelsea and South Kensington. At these luxury salons, Gennaro served a distinguished clientele including members of the royal family, A-list celebrities, and high-profile individuals. However, his passion for hair health led him to pioneer a line of 100% natural, plant-based hair care products, ensuring a perfect balance of luxury and comprehensive hair health. Gennaro debuted his innovative vision with his own salon in Wimbledon in 2015, followed by successful establishments in Notting Hill, Chelsea, South Kensington, and Sardinia’s idyllic Costa Smeralda. Expansion plans are underway with exciting new locations across Europe and the Middle East.
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.
As a stylist with a passion for color and a talent for creating personalized, stylish cuts, I have built a successful career in the beauty industry. I started my journey in a small family salon in Calabria, and later studied at a hairdressing academy in my native Italy. In 2016, I faced the challenge of moving to London and working for one of the most prestigious salons in the city. This experience helped me to hone my skills and become an excellent hairstylist. Seeking new experiences and opportunities, I decided to join the GA Team. Not only do I take pride in the styles I create, but I also pride myself on my friendly and genuine personality. My clients appreciate not only the transformation I give their hair, but also the enjoyable and welcoming atmosphere I create. It is my goal to make each visit not only a pampering and indulgent experience, but also a chance to build a meaningful connection with my clients.
As a proud native of Naples, Italy, I have always been inspired by the rich history of beauty and fashion in my hometown. With 15 years of experience in the hairdressing industry, I have honed my skills and honed my passion for creating truly stunning and unique hairstyles for my clients. From the moment I picked up my first pair of scissors, I knew that hairdressing was my true calling. I was fascinated by the way that hair could be transformed from something simple into a work of art. I began my journey in Naples, working in top salons and learning from some of the best stylists in the industry. In my quest to constantly improve my skills and stay on the cutting edge of the latest trends, I eventually decided to take my talents to the next level by moving to London. I worked for some of the top salons in the city, honing my skills and perfecting my craft. My styles have been featured in leading fashion magazines, and I have been lucky enough to work with some of the biggest names in the industry. Now, as a proud member of the GA Team, I am excited to bring my passion and expertise to a new generation of clients. I believe in creating a personalized experience for each and every one of my clients, and I am committed to ensuring that they leave my chair feeling confident, beautiful, and ready to take on the world. Whether you are looking for a bold and daring new look, or just a simple and classic cut, I am here to help you find the perfect style to match your unique personality and beauty.
I've had a love affair with hair ever since I was a young boy growing up in Sicily. The art of styling, the way a cut can completely transform someone's look and bring out their best features, always fascinated me. I started my career in the industry more than 9 years ago and quickly found a passion for making my clients look and feel their best. My journey in hair has taken me from my hometown in Sicily to the bustling streets of London, where I joined the talented team at GA in 2017. Every day, I bring my wealth of experience and my unique perspective to my clients. I understand that every head of hair is different and every client has their own needs and wants. That's why I always take the time to get to know my clients, to understand their hair type and their lifestyle, and to make sure that the look I create for them is tailored specifically to them. I'm particularly skilled in creating looks that are both stylish and practical, so that my clients can easily recreate their look at home.
Ari Stoja is a promising hairstylist hailing from Albania. She recently joined the team at Gennaro Dell'Aquila as a junior stylist, where she has already shown great potential with her passion and drive in the industry. With her strong foundation of skills and expertise, Ari is eager to continue learning and growing in her career, and she is dedicated to providing the best possible service to her clients. Her positive energy and warm smile make her a pleasure to be around, both in and out of the salon 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.
I was born in the beautiful Republic of Moldova and have been passionate about nails for over 12 years. My journey in the industry began in Moscow, where I honed my skills for six years before moving to London to continue my career for another five years. Nail art is a true passion of mine, and I firmly believe that the foundation for any beautiful design lies in maintaining clean, healthy nails. Obsessed with perfection, I constantly strive to deliver the best results for my clients. My love for art and painting extends beyond nails, enriching my life and fueling my creativity. I cherish the opportunity to travel and always make time to visit my family and friends back home in Moldova, where I can reconnect with my roots and draw inspiration from the warmth and camaraderie of my loved ones.
Ciao! My name is Victoria Mihalachi, and I am originally from Moldova. I entered the nail industry in 2014, beginning my journey in Moscow, where I worked for four years. After that, I moved to the UK and continued to develop my skills in this field. My interest in the profession began as a hobby, stemming from the simple fact that I didn't trust anyone else to do my manicure. I approach my work with great pleasure, always striving to achieve beautiful, healthy results for my clients.
