Geraldine Commisso (full disclosure - she is my daughter in law) is an inspiration for all would be entrepreneurs, especially mumpreneurs. After starting her career in hair dressing at just 16 years of age and enjoying a career change to the Public Service, pregnancy stalled things. Having 2 children within 2 years, her priorities shifted. Gina wanted to stay home with the children. She enlisted her husband to convert part of their garage so that she could work from home.
Geraldine said that “in October 2016, Bombshell Hair was born! And by January 2017 we had to do our 1st extension. I was blown away by the response, as I had such self-doubt and fear from being away for the industry for almost 10 years. I found my passion again! I invested in my education to be able to provide the best for my clients, with a specialization in colour and in particular restoring bad jobs done by others!”.
From appointing the first team member, in 2018 to opening commercial premises in Harrison in 2019 reflects the development path of Gina’s mumpreneur journey.
When asked what is most challenging, Gina said that “it hasn’t always been easy, that mummy guilt never goes away! However, I’m clear about my goals and have the support of my family and the Bombshell Hair Studio team. I love what I do and the great feedback from my clients.”
