Gillian Smith Independent Hairstylist

In 2004 I began working at Hair Savvy Salon as the shampoo assistant and receptionist, shortly in I fell in love with the industry and knew then that this was the path for me! In 2006 I attended the Aveda Institute of Washington DC where I studied Cosmetology. The world of beauty inspired me for its never ending world of creativity and inspiration all around us.

Thanks for the share! Jeannine Bagnall


I can’t even begin to imagine this, but this is unfortunately our current reality. I am desperately hoping that this date is our light at the end of the tunnel and life as we know it can resume starting then. PLEASE, STAY HOME. For those that have 1-3 appointments between now and then, I will work to get you back on my schedule in current appointment order. This is a ton of rescheduling, so please be patient as I work to get everyone back on the books. As always, thank you for the love and support 🤍

Everyone is asking what my top favorite #Beautycounter products are so here are my top 5 (the trio counts as 1 😎)

#betterbeauty #saferskincare #toxicfreebeauty #skincarefavorites #cleanerbeauty #hairandskin #cleanbeautyrevolution

These are times of uncertainty, so I’m over here using it as time to invest in my education behind the chair and embark on new journeys that can enhance my knowledge of all things beauty and wellness. After two years of using and LOVING @beautycounter products as a consumer, I have decided to become a consultant! I am thrilled to share with you my love for these amazing beauty and skincare products while implementing the importance of safer ingredients in our every day beauty regimens. Stay tuned for some more information, and feel free to PM me with any questions!

19 days of work behind the chair and over 100 clients needing to be rescheduled. That’s all saying I’m back to work by the 24th, which may be wishful thinking. I will not be doing any house calls because #socialdistancing nor handing out “root touch up kits” because #liability I just wanted to clarify these two subjects without going in to a ton of detail as to why I believe they are both TERRIBLE ideas. With that cleared up, I hope everyone is staying safe and finding things around the house to keep them busy! I will be reaching out to each client as your “current” appointment approaches. You all have been wonderful and so understanding through this all. Can’t wait to see you in the chair soon 🤍🤍

The VA Gov has made a decision, and while I’m devastated, I’m also hoping this helps to protect and save lives. I don’t know when this will end, none of us do. I just hope when the time is here I’ll see you back in my chair and we can finally share a nice big hug. I love you all so much and will continue to keep up on social media. Please stay safe and if you need someone to chat with I am ALWAYS here...can’t stop those hairapy sessions, especially now. 🤍🤍🤍🤍

Anyone else just feeling the ultimate BLAHS today? You guys, this is hard. I have these intense waves of emotion from feeling super powerful and strong then lows of feeling helpless and scared. It’s all going to be okay. I don’t know when or how, but we will be okay. I know we are all so tired of hearing about all of this, but this is 100% of our worlds reality right now. Who needs a LIVE virtual hang out/chat session tonight? Send me some good energy and love! 🤍

Join me tonight at 6pm on IG for a LIVE tutorial for achieving those beachy waves. Day 2 messy hair (or not, that’s just what I have to currently work with 🤣), a curling iron that fits your size needs, and a glass of wine 🍷 (mandatory...jk) is all you need!

Should I cancel my nail or hair appointment due to coronavirus?

Yes yes and yes. Yes, it is a huge inconvenience but it is NOT worth our health. I have closed down my chair, my small business. This should tell you how important I believe social distancing is through all of this. We are going to find out very soon why it is so important. To my amazing clients, thank you for your support, understanding, and patience during this time. ❤️❤️ To prevent spread of coronavirus, experts recommend canceling your beauty services — but there are still ways you can help those professionals.

✨ Spread positivity ✨Share with me something you have done or planning to do during this time. This may be something you have been meaning to get to for a while now ✍🏼👩🏻‍🌾💃🏻🧘🏼‍♀️👩🏼‍💻🤹🏽🧹🗂or a “lightbulb” 💡 moment you have had.

Clients and friends,

After a couple days of serious consideration I have decided to close my books effective immediately until Wednesday March 25th. At that point, I will revaluate the situation and reach out regarding further out appointments. This is an extremely difficult decision but I believe the right one. I believe that social distancing can help save lives and shutting down my small business for the time being will hopefully be just a bump in the road for the long run. I appreciate your understanding and support and I hope to see you back in my chair real soon. ❤️

It’s SUPER weird times and I know we are all just trying to do our best and make the best decisions for ourselves and our families. Because I work very closely with the general public I am working to use extra safety and sanitization precautions. With that said, if you or any close relatives to you are experiencing any type of illness, please stay home and get well. Hair is hair, and although important to us, nothing is more important than our health. I will continue to keep everyone up to date with any changes to my upcoming work schedule. ❤️🌎 ❤️

Oh, hey! 🙋🏼‍♀️ I thought it would be a good time to re-introduce myself since I’ve just started accepting new referral clients again! My name is Gillian and I am a born and raised downtown Leesburg gal, and I couldn’t love it more. I have two boys, Cooper (6) and Parker (2). I’m married to my high school sweetheart and I totally hit the husband/daddy lottery. I have been doing hair since 2007 and if I wasn’t a hairdresser I would be a personal organizer. I can’t live without my pedicures and if you see me out in public (most likely Target) I may look like a homeless bag lady because I am just like everyone else and I hate doing my hair and makeup. Drop some love below ⬇️⬇️ you can finally let your girlfriends know the books for new referrals are back open...for now 😜

Before & After

Hey there! I’m Gillian, your hairstylist and I actually did my hair today! WHOOP WHOOP! No makeup, just tinted moisturizer with SPF, but I’m starting to be “okay” with this look. Yea, I may look tired (aren’t we all?) but I look HEALTHY! These winter months are hard guys. The dry skin and scalp, the scary pale skin, not to mention those winter blues. SPRING is almost here and YOU’VE got this. Who cares if you look crazy doing it. Take a deep breath, and know there are SO many amazing woman standing alongside you. 😘💪🏼
