As a little girl in Miami, Fabiana would watch in awe as her mother––a 30-year veteran of the beauty industry––combed, curled, and coifed simple strands into stunning works of art. Unable to deny her passion for hair in any language––she's fluent in English, Portuguese, and Spanish––Fabiana she instead decided to embrace her innate talent and follow in her mother's footsteps, a path that would ultimately lead her to Dallas and a gig inside the Aveda-focused State-Thomas Salon. There, she helps heads find the dimensional shine or texture they've always dreamed of with services that range from balayage color to formaldehyde-free Pravana smooth-out treatments. To ensure faces look fresh from top to chin, she also offers waxing for the eyebrows and upper lip and teeth-whitening treatments that help oust stains caused by coffee or a diet rich in grass clippings.
