Caring Cuts

As a little boy in Argentina, Gustavo Cagiao learned a very important lesson from his mother, who was a hairdresser: When it comes to haircuts and coloring, either be the best at it or don’t do it at all! Today, he continues that standard of excellence at WaxMee Salon & Spa.

Gustavo Cagiao is a specialist in precision-cutting techniques for women, men and kids. At the beginning of his career, he focused on men’s haircuts, but his teacher was always telling him that he should do women’s hair, and that he was born with a special talent from God. He subsequently trained with Vidal Sassoon before joining WaxMee. He prides himself on keeping his hairdressing skills fresh, dynamic and alive. “I don’t work, I play 6 days a week doing hair,” he says. “The most important thing to me is the customer in my chair — I love my clients, they’re very special to me.” He also specializes in highlights, Ombré, French Balayage and full coloring. “I’m always keeping fresh with seminars and new collections,” adds the seasoned professional with 25 years of experience. “I keep practicing and training every day.”; 305.856.4082;
