Francisco Gabriel
Francisco B., 50, is single and has been independent since an early age.

Francisco is a hairdresser. He started in this trade after he had to close the restaurant he had in the east of Paraguay. He then traveled to Argentina to seek new opportunities, where a cousin with a salon taught him about the beauty world, and he found his true vocation.

He has been in this business for more than 15 years and has won important professional and technical beauty competitions. He has an established clientele thanks to the warm attention and professionalism that characterize his service.
