Gena gave her first hair cut as a child when she cut her little sister’s bangs. (Her client was very happy with the result.) Since then, Gena became a licensed cosmetologist in 1991, with an expertise in precision cuts and dramatic creative colors. She also has a degree from UCSC in American Studies. Gena’s favorite pastimes include reading, knitting, ballet, live music, and using Color Reviving Gloss in Barolo, and Root Touch Up in Lengo Black on her brows.
