Guilaine "Gigi" Destrat
OWNER/ MASTER STYLIST
(Specialize in Haircuts and Natural Hair Styles)
My name is Guilaine Destrat a.k.a. “Gigi” and I have been a licensed Cosmetologist for over 20 years. In 1994, I graduated from Wilfred Beauty Academy in New York. I now possess a Senior Cosmetologist license in Maryland, and Florida as well.
In 2001, I received an associate degree in Business Management from Berkeley College in New Jersey. I continued my education and, later, obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from Kean University. Although I possessed business related degrees, my passion remained within the hair and beauty industry. Currently, I am employed as a full time hair stylist and part time independent distributor for Team Effort Network. As a passionate innovator in the cosmetology industry, my philosophy is True Beauty Begins on the Inside and Shines Outward!
My life’s mission is to lend my skills and expertise to the beauty industry. In doing so, I feel as though it is my duty to share with men and women of all ethnicities how to, not only, look and feel great on the outside, but to begin the beautification process from within. My primary objective is to provide excellent hair care, stellar customer service, innovative technique, as well as honest and professional consultation. Customer satisfaction is VERY important to me. These attributes, and my business acumen, have been the secret to my success, longevity and very long list of satisfied clientele.
Every year for the past 18 years, I have attended hair shows and have taken advanced classes in order to stay up to date with changes and innovations within the beauty industry, including hair, makeup or healthy living. Additionally, I believe maintaining a healthy lifestyle plays a major role in beauty, as a whole. I have mastered a wide range of hair techniques including advance hair cutting, hair coloring, hair extensions, natural hair and up-dos. Even though I've been in the beauty industry for most of my life, I’m always eager to learn new styling techniques, new ways to stay healthy, and ways to remain on the cutting edge of health and beauty.
Thank you for visiting my website and I look forward to doing business with you!
Grace and Peace!
