Aveda North America Artistic Team- Hair Color
Gabriel (Gabo) Hernandez is originally from Venezuela and is based in Toronto, where he got his professional training at the Aveda Institute and Academy-graduating with Honors from both programs. He’s a hard and dedicated worker with a lot of respect for his craft. As soon as he graduated, he was recruited for the Civello Salon Team and has been with the Aveda family since 2011. Gabo has become a highly-rated hairdresser by his clients. He has also had the pleasure to work closely with Kristjan Hayden (Aveda Creative Director) and with fashion designers like Greta Constantine, Pnina Tornai, Joseph Altuzarra, and Comrags. He was also published in Today’s Parent (May 2014 for a makeover special) and in Binky Magazine (by styling Jessica Mulroney’s hair for the cover). Gabo has also been part of many different shows: The Marilyn Denis TV show, Kleinfeld Canada Fashion Shows, Giller Prize 2014, TIFF, Toronto Fashion Week 2015, and the Canadian Screen Awards 2015. In 2017 Gabo joined the Civello Creative Team and Aveda Team Canada, expanding and sharing his creativity and teamwork. He was also named the 2017 Canadian Aveda Global Fashionista Winner. Most recently Gabo was selected to be part of the new Aveda North America Artistic Team as one of the color experts. Gabo, along with the rest of the team, will demonstrate the Aveda cool factor and the newest trends.
