Meet Izzazu

Gino & Emilio – Principals

Izzazu Salon, Spa & Serata originated from two of the most celebrated names in the world of Pittsburgh hairdressing – Gino Chiodo and Emilio Cornacchione. The merging of Gino’s unparalleled connection to the uniqueness of each of his clients and Emilio’s superior styling flair have made them leaders within the city’s beauty industry.

For nearly 17 years, the duo have inspired trends and motivated their stylists to utilize innovative cut & coloring techniques to reflect smart, seasonal looks. To further achieve their mission, Gino & Emilio developed their own hair care line, Izzazu Haircare. Their products are uniquely formulated with Plant, Protein and Vitamin (PPV) enhancing complexes that ensure integrity, and leave all hair types healthy and manageable.

Their stunning flagship salon is located on 5th Avenue in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. Complimenting Izzazu’s elite level of service and its relaxing décor, this location boasts a unique and intimate styling space – The Serata – which they designed for bridal parties, special events and industry showcases. The Serata’s aim is to meet a private party’s every need and carried out by the expert Serata team consisting of formal hair designers, makeup artists, nail technicians and massage therapists. Business executives and celebrities have been their specialty, including Pittsburgh socialites, industrialists, TV anchors and top models.

In 2010, Izzazu opened a second location at the Oxford Athletic Club in the Wexford suburbs. The Wexford location features a full-service spa experience, in addition to the specialized salon service that clients expect.

“Fashion isn’t always beauty, but beauty is always in fashion.” – Gino and Emilio
