He reflected:

“I was born this way. But I did a lot of different things. I have learnt to serve a glass of water by myself, I’ve studied, I’ve learnt to ride a bike, a motorbike, and even to drive a car. But if I couldn’t do something, my mother helped me.”

On top of that, he had great friends from school.

“They always made me feel good. My friends were incredible,” told Gabriel.

His supportive family helped him open his own barbershop in San Isidro. It was a huge stepping stone in his career and eventually, he met Zlatan Gomez, president of the Argentina Corta organization and that greatly helped him expand his network in the industry.

Later on, Gabriel got into a relationship with Yanina and she offered him to move to 21-24 town when paying for the shop has become a challenge for him. This time, he didn’t have to spend on rent since the shop was owned by Yanina’s aunt.

Gabriel’s become well-known for his cool, intricate hair designs.

“The thing that I like the most of my job is that people feel comfortable and stylish with my cuts and that makes me feel happy.”
