Shai Greenberg is not only one of the initial founders of Gielly Green, but also a gifted hairdresser with a strong foundation of over 25 years experience and training. He initially trained in London under a number of top stylists at leading institutes including Vidal Sasoon, Toni & Guy, and the prestigious Robert Fielding. He has also been awarded a Masters Certificate from the International Hair Styling Organisation.
Shai's dream was always to own and run his own salon, and in 1994 he opened the first of his two salons in his native city Tel Aviv. He followed this by pioneering the first combined hair salon and spa in Israel offering a wide range of treatments and services under one roof. Whilst working in Israel Shai built a profile as a leading visionary in Israel's hair and beauty sector due to his innovation, creativity and extraordinary achievements. This included guest spots on television shows as well as featuring in magazine articles and advising a variety of fashion shows.
In 2005 his desire to grow as a hairdresser and business owner brought him back to London, where he met his friend and now business partner Fred Gielly. They worked together to formulate a philosophy upon which to build their joint salon venture, Gielly Green.
Shai's style of colouring and styling hair brings out his clients natural beauty. He uses a variety of cutting and styling techniques, working with the hair's texture and face shape to find and bring out each person's inner glamour.
