Gilbert Tafoya

Hello, My name is Gilbert Tafoya. I’ve been in the hairdressing business for 37 years. Graduated from Cosmetology at Cerritos College. Started looking for Salons right away. Went though a few Salons before landing a Great Salon in Lakewood, CA called Marti Harvey and Friends. I was employed there for six months and started to learn some new technique before she closed the doors. I moved on to George Oliveri Salon in Long Beach, CA. I met a lot of great hairdressers and had some great education classes from Redken, Tigi, Aveda and Joico! but was time to move on. I moved down the street to Sharrion James Salon where I started renting a station  it was a good choice, until she sold the salon, I started to wonder is it me! So I had to find a new place, which is when I landed at D’Aversa Salon, which I’ve worked there for 11 years. Another great salon full of great hairdressers and great education. I do want to say that I thank my clients and appreciate each and very one of them!
