Gaby Malcangio relocated from South Africa 1986 and went to La Jolla High to finish 3 years of high school in 1989. Gaby studied, became certified, and practiced massage, skincare, lymphatic drainage, aromatherapy, and continued more post graduate classes. “I took care of so many women who had permanent makeup procedures. I never had the desire to learn until a friend got a lash enhancement that looked gorgeous and natural. I realized there was a better way to enhance my client’s features in a softer and natural way. I feel that micropigmentation should never be harsh, stand out, or be noticeable, instead add, blend, and enhance my clients natural features”.
“I believe that I have found what it is that I am supposed to be doing. I love helping women, and making their lives a little easier. My true passion is working with people who have alopecia, or who have lost hair due to chemotherapy to treat different types of cancer. Having watched my mother deal with cancer and the loss of some of her eyebrow hair, we decided to design a natural brow fill in before treatment. We also did lipliner and lash enhancement. Mom always looked great even when she did not feel great!”.
Training and experience are the single most important factors to consider when choosing the artist/technician who will best apply your permanent makeup. Gaby Malcangio understands this, and believes in continuing education, and is a member of the SPCP (Society of Permanent Cosmetics Professionals). Gaby attends yearly conferences, classes and trade shows,and also makes sure she is updated on the most current techniques and procedures, sanitation rules and regulations, and topical anesthetic use.
