Gianni Scumaci for Alan Howard

Gianni ScumaciThe embodiment of taste and elegance, Gianni Scumaci is one of the classiest hairdressers we’ve met! He learned his craft from Vidal Sassoon – working closely with the man himself – and you can tell. These cuts are a throwback to the line and grace of the 60s but with a thoroughly modern edge. We’ve just heard our man will be hosting a GS Education programme, called Discover, running over five 2-day workshops throughout 2019…

Gianni Scumaci said: “Whether you are a successful and experienced stylist or new to theindustry, the one thing I see time and again, globally, is the impact a lack of confidence hason a stylist’s creativity and clientele. This lack of confidence stems from a combination of factors, from stylists not valuing themselves and the significant contributions they make to clients every day, to having gaps in their knowledge. No matter how small the knowledge gap is, it can considerably hold someone back and consequently they play it safe by making repetitive decisions behind the chair and stick to what they know to feel secure. This course is specifically designed to help comprehensively fill any gaps in someone’s learning in order to empower, allowing them to feel confident and creative on the salon floor and expand their current clientele as I believe that you always attract more of what you create.”

The course, first established in 2012, includes:

  • The foundations of haircutting in both theory and practice – including the three shapes of round, square and triangle and their function with the three techniques of lines, graduation and layers.
  • Individual support and guidance from Gianni throughout the program
  • Opportunity to gain confidence and unlock your potential, while having fun along the way.
  • Celebratory meal for all participants at the end of the course.

    The course costs £795+VAT per 2-day workshop and places are limited. Anyone booking the full 10 day programme will be able to book VAT free. Following each workshop, all students will have free access for one month to the complete Discover collection of GS Education. For a taster of the education programme visit
