About this pro

I have been a hairstylist for 35 years. I have seen and done just about every hairstyle out there. My main priority is the look and health of your hair....if you you bring me a picture that is not doable, I will TELL YOU. If your hair is not in a stable enough condition to do the chemical service you are asking, I will pass on the money and TELL YOU!

Too many stylists just want the money from the service and don't let the client know about the hazards of the service!! YOU are my walking billboard. If I do a service that looks like crap or makes your hair break off, just because that's what you wanted, it makes ME look bad!! Truth in service is my motto!!

I love EVERYTHING about the work I do!! Making people look and FEEL better about themselves is so rewarding! Having the opportunity to meet so many different people with different personalities, backgrounds, heritages, and stories make my "job", not a job at all....but rather a daily EXPERIENCE! God has truly blessed me with this career. 💖

    Ginni has been my hair stylist for over 20 years, because she is excellent in her skills. She has done perms, color and cuts that always bring me compliments. She responds well to scheduling changes. I highly recommend her.

  • Helen Benton

  • Jessica S.

    She is amazing. I won't let anyone else touch my hair.

  • Melodee Spring

    My husband has been going to A Cut Above for 22 or 23 years, he is super picky! My daughter and I were a bit slower, about 18 years. Love Ginni! She is fantastic!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I like to discuss their lifestyle. Do they have time to do their hair every morning? Do they prefer "wash-n-go" type of style? What are they looking for long term in a style ......as in, are they hoping to grow it out eventually, etc.

What products are they using in their hair. What is their history with color and other chemicals. Discussing their face shape with the most flattering cut. Discussing their skin tone with a complimentary color.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Too many classes and workshops over the years to even count. Color and cut specialist.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Cuts are pretty standard. The only extra charge would be for styling (such as curling or straightening) that takes more than 15 min. after dry. Most times, soft waves or getting the hair straighter can be achieved during the blowdry/style.

Basic cut w/o shampoo or blowdry, (must have short "mens type" cut)......$28

Shampoo/cut/blowstyle.......$35

Extra curling or straightening.....$7

Colors and highlights have SO many variables, so I will just list the STARTING prices of those. All prices include cut and blowstyle.

Full color........$95

Root touch-up color......$75

Full foil.......$140

Partial foil.......$100

Full foil touch-up......$105

Partial touch-up......$80

Corrective color......$75 an hour for first two hours, $50 an hour beyond that.

Variables can include: thickness of hair, length of hair, how many colors are used, if a toner is needed, prior color remaining in hair, etc.


How did you get started in this business?

In elementary school, my older sister used to cut my dad and my brothers hair. I would be intrigued watching her.....I started cutting my own hair in Jr. High and always got compliments. By High School I was cutting a few friends' hair. I enrolled in the Skill Center program for Cosmetology my senior year, and the rest is history! 


What types of customers have you worked with?

I'm mostly trained in Caucasian hair, but do have a few ethnic clients as well. I have worked on children as young as 9 months, to people in their 90's. I have almost as many men clients as I do women. Age, gender, or race have no bearing......although, like I said above, my training on ethnic hair, especially chemical straightening is limited. 😕
