Salon founder, Detlev Gessner has more than thirty years of experience in hair design and color, and is an industry leader and color educator throughout the United States.
Detlev was born and raised in Germany, where he was formally trained as a stylist and where he achieved the certification of Master Stylist, the highest national credentials a stylist can achieve.
In 1988, Detlev brought his talent to the Miami area, where he’s had the privilege of working with celebrities such as Hillary Clinton, Tipper Gore, Nestor Torres and Sally Jessy Raphael. Present salon clients include talk-show host Cristina Saralegui, who is known as the Oprah of Spanish-language television.
In February 2013, Detlev Gessner opened Detlev Salon & Spa in Coconut Grove. It is the only Aveda Lifestyle Salon in the Miami area. The success of the new salon and spa sparked Detlev’s desire to offer the Aveda Lifestyle Salon experience to all of his clients, so in September 2013, Detlev merged his Gables Hair Studio into the Detlev Salon & Spa in Coconut Grove.
