"I have long believed that beauty and its care exist in nature. It’s the very definition of organic. And while the idea of professional beauty has grown into style and then been transformed by fashion, at its core remain the four elements of earth, wind, fire and water. In these most essential elements of life, I have found the proof of my beliefs. Earth, wind, fire and water, the elements of life are now the elements of Giovanni beauty. Twenty-one premium hair care tools, formulated with certified organic ingredients. Ingredients born of earth, wind, fire and water; hair care that is the epitome of beauty from the elements. Enjoy." - G. James Guidotti
How Giovanni was developed
Take a well-known Hollywood hair stylist with an alert ear to the growing consumer demands for natural products without chemical additives or animal by-products. That’s how Los Angeles hair stylist to the stars, Arthur Giovanni came to develop his own range of natural hair care products which is now available in New Zealand.
The Giovanni range owes its success to an allergic skin reaction suffered by Arthur Giovanni from applying product to customers’ hair day after day. He tried many products searching for a hair care line that would not cause a skin reaction.
At the suggestion of a friend, a leading nutritionist in the health food industry, he changed his diet, and his skin problem began to clear up – but never completely. So, he started in a small way, by himself, to create nutritional type hair products, and after using them, he noticed that his skin condition disappeared. At the same time he saw that the hair he worked on looked better, brighter, and became easier to manage. He explored the possibility of creating his own professional hair care products with a base consisting of vitamins, herbs, minerals, proteins, and nutrients. He felt that such a range would also have greater predictability (i.e. no surprise chemical reactions such as oxidation of colour, etc.) and create ultimate hair health.
In 1977, he met up with Dr. John Weaver, who was a pioneer in implementing natural essences into the cosmetology field, reinforcing Giovanni’s ideals. Weaver was instrumental in developing formulas in Jeri Redding’s early products, which eventually evolved into the present Nexus line. Weaver also did the pilot runs for this currently popular line.
Coupling Weaver’s expertise with Giovanni’s direction and uncanny feel for what was truly needed in hair care, the whole range of Giovanni products was introduced to selected salons throughout the US, Europe, and the Orient.
Containing only quality natural ingredients including Ripe Harvested, Certified Organic Botanicals which are harvested at the peak of their ripeness for maximum nutritional value; high vitamin and mineral content, improved performance and highest possible potency. You can see and feel the difference. Your hair takes on an unparalleled shine and condition that is deeper and more lustrous.
Just as important in the creation of these products is The Giovanni Rule of Balance, which states: Make each product as pure and natural as humanly possible without sacrificing exceptional product performance.
All Giovanni products are Cruelty-Free (No animal testing, no animal by-products), pH Balanced and they do not contain Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphates so they will not strip hair colour.
Giovanni understands that pure, fresh, natural ingredients are important to their users… but they also understand that their products must perform exceptionally well.
MISSION - The Giovanni rule of balance
Make each product as pure and natural as humanly possible without sacrificing exceptional product performance.

Welcome to the butterfly that is Giovanni.
Ever since we were nothing but a chrysalis, our founder, Arthur Giovanni knew that his company would take flight to bring beauty to the world. After all, he had started as a hairdresser himself before blossoming into a leading hair stylist and a Beverly Hills salon owner. His "On Sunset" salon attracted some of the most influential people in Southern California while his quest to forever create simply beautiful hair led him on journey that would take him beyond Southern California, to the most natural corners of the world searching. His quest led to a partnership with a pioneering physician, and the birth of something truly extraordinary; a new company with newer formulas. By tapping into nature's vast resources, the company that bears his name soon came to represent beauty from the elements as well as beauty from within. It still does. It's quite an extraordinary feat.
