Shampoo/ Blow Dry
Hand Painting, Curly Hair, Wash and Wear Cuts, and Gray Blending Specialist
Hello, Gina Garoogian here, nice to meet you!
My 7 year Nomadic journey ended abruptly the day I landed here back in December 2021.
I’m originally from Santa Barbara California where I still service my clientele from the past 30+ years. I had the privilege of working for De Cut Hair Salon in my 20s where we educated, did platform work, trained assistants and were taught an invaluable system of bulk cutting and coloring.
I’m a minimalist at heart which transfers over to my craft. I take pride in simple, clean, wash and wear styles. I believe that quality products are key, yet less is more. I aim to offer haircuts that require very little at home styling. My preference in color are ones with more seamless grow outs. I enjoy working “with” your natural color as opposed to altering it 100%. Hand painting pops of sun kissed blond and deep chocolate brown low lights for contrast and depth is one of my specialties. I rarely use toners with my Balayage; instead I work with your natural undertones. The goal of a no-toner Balayage is longevity/less maintenance. I’m also a Curly Hair specialist. Layering, texturing and distributing weight are key when cutting Curly Hair.
Each time you sit in my chair I will look at your tresses with new eyes, asking myself, “what can I do to enhance this already beautiful look and give it even more longevity than last time”. When a client returns for their trim and color still “looking good” I know I’ve done my job.
I am a true artist at heart having a background in ceramics, acrylic painting, mosaics, dance, creative writing, and reading. Then there is your hair, my other canvas…..
When I’m not at work you can find me on the pickle ball court, at the park doing handstands and backbends, riding my bike, reading, writing, at a Milonga dancing Tango, Contact Improv, West Coast swing or Fusion. I’m curious about the 5th dimension and Crypto Currency.
I also enjoy philosophizing, especially when it comes to human nature and metaphysics.
Feeling thankful to be settled in this beautiful city of Boulder with a trade that allows me to pay the rent.
Thank you for trusting me with your tresses, I look forward to meeting you!
I welcome all genders and all ages in my chair.
New clients please call the salon to book extra time for your consultation.
Now let’s play…
