Gina Affinito | Owner, Senior Stylist

IG:@heartandsoulbeautylounge

Owner & OG Stylist Gina Affinito began pursuing her artistic dreams over two decades ago. In 1997, Gina passed her boards and became a licensed stylist at age 17. She hasn't looked back since.

 

A firm believer in personal and professional growth, Gina pours her heart and soul into everything she does. Her insatiable creative drive, impeccable eye for detail, and seemingly infinite ability to visualize and create aesthetic greatness fuel her commitment to her craft and take the salon experience to the next level. 

 

With a deep understanding of the symbiotic relationship between cut and color, Gina specializes in precision haircuts that are as short and edgy as they are accessible, and harnesses the power of placement with head-turning color formulations.  

 

From her over-the-top personal style, to her laugh or cry and slightly inappropriate (yet entirely relatable) sense of humor, Gina’s love-me-or-hate-me attitude doesn’t break the mold, because she never had one. When not immersed in all things visual, Gina is busy raising (and educating) her five year old twins.
