Haircuts for All Genders
I love helping people create a new look.
We've often been going to the same barber for years, getting basically a similar variation of the same cut, and just want a change- ANYTHING! And sometimes we have a very specific creation in mind, and just need someone else to act as our hands to make our vision a reality.
I specialize in the "natural" look- no dyes, chemicals, nor blow dryers or even styling products. Just the cut itself. (I personally do not even use shampoo- baking soda does wonders, and apple cider vinegar is the perfect follow-up conditioner! Coconut oil is good for the tips of long hair...)
In the future I plan to have professional tools to give a proper barber shave. For now, I enjoy styling facial hair with regular clippers and using a razor just for the outline. The possibilities are still endless!

How about your fresh new look giving my page a fresh new look too?
Training & Qualifications
I earned my Hair Stylist license in 2011 at Shuki Zikri Hair Academy, Tel Aviv.
Some of the school's customers would specifically request me, and then ask for my number to continue with me after graduating. I began cutting hair from home and also making house calls, under the business name TRANSformations by Gavriel. So called because I catered to transsexuals and gender queers.
I also worked in a few barber shops in Australia while on work holiday. Guys there would bring pictures of the coolest styles- I had so much fun! Some French barbers there taught me to give a proper shave, and I loved doing chin straps, goatees, etc.
Availability & Preferences
You're welcome to come over- I'm currently living NE Portland (near Sandy & 33rd). I'm also happy to bike anywhere for an additional 5 Simbi per mile. My schedule varies, so it's best to check in.
