Gabriela loves to gather inspiration from iconic hairstyles of the 60’s and 70’s–think perfect shags and distinctive waves; she aims to fuse dreamy, romantic shapes into fresh, wearable, effortless looks which best suit her client’s facial features, natural hair texture, and unique lifestyles. Gabi most enjoys working with razor cutting, and natural hair color, including seamless, dimensional balayage, as well as bold bangs. After growing up in Oakland, California, Gabi began her training at the Cinta Aveda Institute in San Francisco, and has continued her education with Bumble & Bumble, Davines, Organic Colour Systems, and Pony Salon. Throughout her career, she has had her work published in SF Gate and Elle France. Gabriela’s fierce sense of individuality has been influenced by her mother, who has always encouraged her to be her most authentic self, and follow her creative intuition. Any time she has the opportunity, Gabriela loves to go hunting for vintage finds around Portland, antiquing, sewing and anything crafting!
