Hair Heroes Hairdressing Scholarship

Gino Fossano

Gino was the life of the party and salon. His incredible work ethic and desire to serve people in hairdressing was truly inspiring.

Gino started hairdressing in 1978. He opened Portfolio Hair in Sydney’s northern beaches 1983 and years later the salon grew to 25 staff.

Gino was always positive and driven and “No” didn’t exist in his vocabulary. Everything was possible. He was a real force in hairdressing over the years.

He was always willing to fit clients in even if it meant staying back late. Leading by example he always attracted the most passionate hairdressers and cared for his team like he did his family, they always felt part of his life.

When you were in Gino’s presence you felt his affection for life.

DCI Education is not just about great hair education – we’re about supporting great people.

Creating a supportive and innovative environment is always top of mind for DCI, both in our hair community and beyond. That is why we have launched the Hair Heroes scholarship, to support the next generation of Australian hairdressers.

The Hair Hero’s Scholarship is designed to honour and celebrate the life of past hairdressing legends –  Dennis Langford, Sharon Maher, Frank Burgermeister and Gino Fossano.

We’ve seen first-hand how good hair education can transform the lives of a hairdresser. DCI is proud to educate 1000’s of hair professionals yearly, and we are thrilled to be able to help invest and support in the future of our hairdressing industry.
