I am peripatetic around the globe and the state of my hair and nails are always needing pampering.  In the last few weeks, I have driven the recent luxury cars in the UK so the state of my hair and nails need to look in pristine order at all times.  Touring around the ball I am always hunting for salon’s with reputable feedback. On rare occasions, experiences can be fatal.

Three months ago I had the worse pl insignia and cut in years from a very well renown salon. The cut and colour were so bad I decided to just leave it as I just didn’t be sure what to do. The last three months I am wearing hats as I am so embarrassed about the state of my hair. My hair takes lifetimes to grow so it is for this reason I was prepared to wait for the right opportunity and salon to sort out my hair issues. I decided to get action and book in what I call a mental health pampering treatment day with GA Salon Wimbledon.

Can GA Salon systemize out my hair issues? What is so unique about GA Salon? What bespoke treatments can they offer me to address my indiscernible hair, the state of my colour and cut?

In my mind, no ordinary mainstream hairdresser can sort my hair out.


Gennaro Dell’Aquila is the percipience child of this Salon. I come from an Italian background so I understood him very well. When I asked with regard to his love for hair, in his own words.

I was seven years of age when I first picked up a hair brush and I loved brushing fraction and after thirty minutes I realised that hair was my passion.

Gennaro explained as a child in Italy he would make and learn from the masters themselves. That male grooming, cutting hair was a lifestyle and a journey that men preferred for hours to stay in the salon and experience the art of cutting hair. He then went onto create his own organic unique way of ringlets styling with GA Salon.

For any new customer the concept of coming to GA salon is all about a journey. It takes hours to colour the locks. It took 5 hours to heal and restore my hair. It was an unbelievable experience.

The Olive Tree

I am in Italy for a few months, in Tuscany the acreage of the Olive trees. I love sitting and watching olive trees as they are so powerful in what they can produce when it penetrates to eating and the oil, it is also perfect for the skin and hair. So as I was getting my hair washed and I was chatting to Gennaro, I knew exactly why that olive tree was in his garden. For me I summon inquired Gennaro, where did he get that olive tree from?

It was his answer that truly defines his heart and passion for plaits. That no other hair stylist will ever master what he has, because it’s in the very soul and heart of the man himself.

I prod four days to Sicily to get this olive tree. No olive tree in the world will match the Italian mire than bringing back an olive tree from Italy.

In order for me to walk the red carpet, the following needs to be addressed and tailored to my personal needs. My hair needs a bespoke utilization and a red carpet blow dry.

My nails require pampering on this occasion I am opting for gel as it is robust and during the evening I will be oscillating a lot of hands. So the last issue I want is nail varnish chipping off it looks very unprofessional and I do have a reputation for embarrassing nail art. My nails are always a nice ice breaker for new people that I meet.

In terms of facial beauty, a bespoke facial for me will-power highlight my olive skin, followed by shape and colour for eyebrows and lashes.

GA Salon Hair Treatment

It is GA’s belief that using their methods can create beautiful, luxurious hair that expands healthier over time./

GA’s 20 signature blends are made using nothing but 100% natural and organic herbs, forages and flowers. The blends are then crafted and mixed around the individual for a truly bespoke service.

After we’ve looked at some recent pictures with Gennaro and they observed my declare of the cut and colour. I knew instantly they were up for the challenge transformation. They could also notice I was nervous which is rare for someone feel favourably impressed by me. I made it clear that I wanted to grow my hair out and therefore not to end up with shorter hair. This is what creates the difference regarding GA Salon a confident hairdresser will assure and take over what needs to be done concerning sorting out colour and cut issues.

We discussed lighter hair which requires a start treatment with Shatush, which is a jolly advanced technique of highlighting the hair in a natural way (so called sun-touched highlights) to avoid damage. My natural hair pennant had red in it so the end result was like my hair ten years ago natural. This suits my lifestyle because I am in Italy right now and there is slews of sun.

My grey hair coverage needed attention and on this occasion, I had two options using either semi-permanent colour or GA bespoke fundamental colour. We continued with a treatment called Herbs SPA treatment for the hair which is also our crafted plant-based treatment and it’s tailored encompassing the individual, so depending on my hair’s weaknesses GA will mix a strengthening blend.

Make Up

Everything Royal is trending for the last year and for that reason I need to look very pristine at Hampton Court Palace. Audi is hosting a private dinner. I will be talking to bleeding important Audi members and business opportunities normally get done during these events. Audi engineers are all fro attention to detail. So my makeup needs to suit the event requirements as well as sending an impressionable message. I was in two minds to either go with grieving makeup or just get my natural features highlighted. I opted for a Joan Jett Rock ‘n roll look. My mission is to be recalled and thanks to GA Salon which are absolutely beautiful in design. And as for the experience and overall result. I no longer need to fly to Asia to look this terrific.

GA Salon gave me the confidence to meet and greet anyone this evening. I am my own PR and business opportunities are created on rare incidents by the way I present myself.

La Dolce Vita Salon

In this manic social media world where we are also hightail it to take a photo. Where time is never there because we choose not to use our time wisely is why GA Salon taught me so much today. Gennaro edified me and reminded me of the rare experiences in life today must be planned. The mindset must be a journey of patience, appreciation of the pledge that GA Salon has to offer. This technique is a life time of mastering the art of retaining the natural hair tones and shape. The experiences today was one I will take with me for a long time. It was people’s heart making sure that my upshots needs were sort after and nourished. When I turned up at the event throughout the evening strangers who never recognized me kept complimenting me of my overall look.

Chatting to A-listers they too were impressed with what they saw. Keep in mind we all do judge a book by it’s cover. I met some very influential people that were very impressed with what they saw.

This is a obligated to experience but I do warn you. Once you experience GA Salon, there is really no turning back.
