About Us

At the forefront of the hair, fashion and beauty industry, the creative mind behind the Bavaro Hair Salon located in the north shore area of Libertyville, IL, Gino Bavaro has 40 years of recognition for his vision and accomplishments while releasing the definition of a true entrepreneur. From visionary to stylist extraordinaire, Gino and his Team is The Go-to-Guy of Photographers & Editors. With an easy going nature and vision that far exceeds anyone’s expectations, Bavaro’s Team takes both men and women from simple to stunning!

Italian-born and raised in a small town allowed Gino the vision to be creative and to develop a need for beauty. After moving to America, Gino soon realized his desire to expand his knowledge and understood the need to gain training. He went away to London with Vidal Sassoon, to Paris with Alexander De Paris, and Milano with Aldo Copola. Working with these masters,  Gino was exposed to and gained experience in editorial work. With this passion and an eye for beauty, Gino began growing his business, sharing his knowledge,  and expanded his portfolio with advertising clientele.

His work with world-renowned photographers allowed Gino and his Team the freedom to create and design beautiful, glamorous hair. While mastering the finer points of the craft, his foray into the world of beauty, has landed him into the pages of Modern Salon Magazine, Hair Style Guide Magazine, Queen Italia Hair Magazine, and Salon Hair International. In January 2008, Gino received the Martin Blank Heart Award from the G.L.M.V. Chamber of Commerce, the highest award in the community for answering the call to action over and beyond what would normally be expected of them, bringing great credit upon themselves and the community.
