Gio is a true Avant Garde Hair Styling Artist!

Gio Montesino graduated in 1985 from Vidal Sassoon Academy in San Francisco, CA where he specialized in the art of precision haircuts. Continuing his career, he enhanced his technique in hair razor cutting, a technique used for modern, edgy looks. 

Gio shared his hair styling art and knowledge with the best of the industry; Tony and Guy, Bumble and Bumble, and many others.


Gio has worked with famous hair colorist Beth Minardi from New York City, as well as the Academy of Art in San Francisco and the Grand Opera House. He was granted the opportunity to develop his skills demonstrating elegant and modern updos, used today for proms, Sweet Sixteen’s, and of course, brides on their most important day.

Soon enough Gio found himself working with local celebrities, and world-known famous designers on runway shows such as Oscar De La Renta, Gucci, and Mayda Cisneros.


His talent shook the bones of the industry! With no surprise, Gio was one of the top 3 hairstylists that were chosen locally to be part of the team that re-opened the new Red Door Salon in 1998 as a Master Colorist.

In 2000, Gio was thrilled to join the talented team at Avant Garde Salon and Spa where he shares his amazing talents with celebrities and the biggest well-known TV anchors in Florida; Univision, WSVN, ABC, and more.

Gio also currently participates in styling the hair for the cast of Nuestra Belleza Latina, Mira Quien Bilar, and Miss Florida Pageant.


Gio is recognized for his great customer service and excellent communication skills with clients to achieve a successful finish. Let Gio create an urban chic look that you can recreate at home so you will always look your best!
