Between three London salons, and countless coveted awards under her (notably on-trend) belt, Gina Conway’s curriculum vitae is as inspiring as it is impressive—but more importantly, rooted in her heart.
Famous for her “American-style customer service,” Gina Conway was named a winner in Customer Service by the Merton Best Business Awards, and the recipient of numerous other prestigeous awards. Her true passion lies in giving a bespoke service above and beyond expectations, with a genuine desire to make someone’s day. Her positive vibes give her guests a wonderful feeling and she mines deep for the secret to unlocking their inner beauty, and her genuine spirit makes them wholeheartedly happy to go there.
A head-to-toe sartorial muse, Gina’s unmistakable flair—matched with experience alongside designers at London and Paris Fashion Weeks—led her to winning Aveda’s coveted Fashionista Photographic Award for Europe.

CALIFORNIA EASE MEETS LONDON CHIC
Gina created her salons as sanctuaries—for both her guests and team members—taking specific notes from her childhood home on the sunny California seaside. It would be wrong to not mention Gina’s love for nature which is where you will find her when she is not seeking inspiration from traveling, or painting in Paris where she is currently living “getting her creative on.” “I am a innovator, my day is structured around how to improve and drive forward and make the salons the very best they can be. Exploring creatively is a way to both connect to me as well as disconnect for a couple of hours.”
Since opening her first Aveda gallery-inspired salon in 2001, Gina’s salons manifest the environmental and healthy lifestyle focus she grew up practicing. Her efforts in championing environmental awareness have led to her and her GC team raising over £35,000 for WaterAid—just one of the ways that they propogate a unique culture of community-led kindness.
