AVA Model Management model makeover at Botanico Salon by Giancarlo from Amy Nelson-Blain on Vimeo.




Born in Italy, renowned hairstylist Giancarlo first studied hairdressing and trichology in Rome, in Via Condotti. After which he ran his own salons and began teaching advanced master classes in colour and cutting techniques throughout Europe in the 1980’s and early 90’s, before moving to Australia in 1995.


Even as a very young stylist in Rome, Giancarlo’s highly developed skills and professionalism led to his early years styling hair throughout the European fashion and film industry, including Italian Vogue and Harpers Bazaar and a substantial following of well known clientele from the corporate and fashion industry.


He has continued to develop an enviable reputation throughout his career through his unwavering high standards and by working with many of the most respected names in hair and beauty: including Sergio Valente (the internationally recognised hair master), Elizabeth Arden, and on the catwalks of fashions shows for celebrated designers such as Giorgio Armani, Fendi and Rocco Barocco.


Throughout his career he has also been perfecting his revolutionary hair regime which focuses on restoring health to hair through the use of his own environmentally-friendly products for both ‘at home’ and salon use - with the focus on nature and gentle ingredients such as botanical oils and plant extracts.


Whilst Giancarlo’s dedication to his craft and passion for his job has seen him styling and teaching hair techniques, colour and hair health in Italy, Paris, London, he is now running his own salon and hair product line based out of Australia: where he relishes being able to access an incredibly high standard of Australian grown botanical, eco-friendly ingredients for his product line and a level of expertise second to none in the world.


For 16 years, Giancarlo ran his popular boutique hair salon in Queen Street in Woollahra and has recently relocated to his new premises in 1/1 Transvaal Ave Double Bay, primarily for his revolutionary new BOTANICO SALON fit out and people friendly space Double Bay provides. Double Bay is the perfect fit for his new botanically focused, nature friendly concept salon and the Botanico Salon hair product line. He has established a loyal following of high profile Australian as well as international clientele throughout the area and with his product range now available in his new salon and on-line, continues his life-long passion for healthy, beautiful hair naturally.
