Gabriel Samra – coach for the iVillage Hair Makeover Community Challenge - serves as beauty expert on the Telemundo morning show, Un nuevo día (formerly Levántate).
Also known as “el mago de la belleza,” Gabriel teaches techniques and tips on make-up and hair in a weekly segment on the show to help viewers change their looks and make their dreams come true. Gabriel has also employed his unique style and creative vision to design magazine covers, television shows, calendars and more.
With expertise in make-up and hair design, color and cuts, Gabriel has traveled the world, studying at Lorea’l Paris, Redken Fifth Avenue, Wella and L’anza Healing Color. He is in development on his own hair and make-up product line, which he hopes will help women everywhere.
A master of his craft, Gabriel is continually tapping his artistic roots to develop innovative methods that push the boundaries of modern hair design. Whether you want a classic cut, color, or new avant-garde style, Gabriel delivers a fresh hair design that fits your individual lifestyle.
Gabriel believes that a woman’s hair is a reflection of her personality. He is passionate about helping women look and feel their best every day and looks forward to sharing his expertise and support every day on iVillage and our sister site with Telemundo, Mujer de Hoy.
