A COFFEE WITH GINA FROM BOMBSHELL HAIR
What is your drink of choice?
Favourite drink is definitely COFFEE! Couldn’t get through mum life, running a business & still working on the salon floor without it!
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hi girl gang…my names Gina & I’m the owner of Bombshell Hair. Ive lived & grown up in Canberra my whole life & I wouldn’t live anywhere else. I’m a mumma to my 2 kids, Vincent (5) & Valentina (4), wifey & salon mum to my 4 girls ❤️ I love making others feel amazing about themselves & love helping others achieve their goals & reach their full potential
Tell us about Bombshell hair and how it came to be?
Can you believe, I had actually left hairdressing a year after I qualified & went into the public service for almost 10 years!
Bombshell Hair started in October 2016 in the back of my garage, while I was maternity leave with my daughter. I knew the public service was never my passion. My husband knew I missed my craft & didn’t want to return to the public service, so we decided to build a tiny little salon at the back of our garage.
From there my business just grew with the amazing support & loyalty of my clients. We renovated 3 times & eventually took over the entire garage before we once again outgrew it & opened my first salon in a commercial space in Jan 2019.
I’m a big believer in what you put out in the universe will be returned, so this is why it is an important part of our salon culture to do a lot of fundraising for the community throughout the year.
I never in my wildest dreams thought I would open my own salon only 3 years later. It’s been a crazy & amazing ride with highs & lows, awesome opportunities within our industry & community, beautiful new friendships made & the fact we get to go into work every day create a unique one on one & relaxed experience, help our clients feel beautiful & absolutely love what we do!
