GioExpressions Private Spa was founded by Gio Mariah on July 16th 2013 in Colonie NY. Starting the company at age 19, she became one of the youngest entrepreneur's to own a day spa in NY. She was raised by a single parent and started her company from scratch with the ethical guidance of her older sister who was a master barber. Gio has been a makeup artist for seven years and a paramedical aesthetican for six years. When our location was opened in Colonie NY we wanted to make a day spa that was truly unique. The spa industry today has open doors to women. But when the doors open for men, it's in a hyper feminized environment. Our location is primarily catered to men, but we still have open doors to women. Starting our company in a barbershop we truly learned whats best suited for are male majority. Our staff also feels to effectively improve the appearance of individuals, you must have a one on one environment. We found the majority of people not going to spas feel intimidated by large spa locations. Our spa is a medical office environment. Having a small sized day spa changes everything. This way you will never feel threatened to want improvements to your skin. When having our logo made and trademark made into a patented symbol, we wanted it to make everyone feel comfortable with welcome arms for coming to a day spa. On September 2014 the Colonie location burned down in a roofing repair accident, 2 months later we reopened in Altamont NY at Carpenter Plaza. Unfortunately on August 23 2015 Gio Mariahs sister Jacquelyn Mariah Porreca was tragically murdered on sandcreek rd in Colonie NY by a client. The same sibling, master barber, and barbershop owner who helped her start this empire. After 2 years in Altamont with business growth and personal healing, Gio made a permanent location in Guilderland NY. This business is truly authentic in every aspect possible. We show case to never give up under any situation and spread self love through beauty services. GioExpressions has the biggest male clientele for skin care services in the entire state of New York. This business has also donated to transgender equality benefits for Albany NY.
