Our Story

Owner, Gabriella, knew from a very young age that hair was her passion. It was obvious that her talent in beautifying her family and friends would transition into what now hails as GAVALI SALON. After completing cosmetology school at Ricci’s Academy, Gabriella spent seven years working as a stylist in two of Connecticut’s high-end salons as well as a freelance stylist in New York City. She has styled models for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, various magazine shoots and hair shows, The Salon Guy, Hair Fever and a number of charitable events. Her endeavors also include over eleven years of wedding stylings as well as advanced coloring and haircutting services and fantasy and avant-garde hair styling.

Gabriella opened her first beauty suite in 2014 in Fairfield and quickly outgrew the space. She moved to GAVALI’s current location at 2475 Black Rock Turnpike, Fairfield, CT 06825 in 2015 and has grown her business into a full-service hair salon. GAVALI’s stylists specialize in all hair textures and lengths. They offer all color services including ammonia free coloring, color corrections, highlights, cutting and styling, special occasion up-dos, extensions, thermal treatments, makeup, bridal hair and more. GAVALI SALON is a Redken Elite salon. GAVALI SALON uses Redken Chromatics ammonia free hair color, Shades-EQ color gloss, Surface Haircare products, Redken Haircare products, IGK products and our GAVALI brand haircare products.

Gabriella is dedicated to the next generation of stylists and prides herself on personally training her stylists on the techniques that she has acquired and developed over the last decade in the industry.
