Celebrity Hairstylist, Gabrielle Corney’s motto : “Hair is the Ultimate Accessory”, and I must agree! What woman doesn’t want healthy flowing tresses? We constantly obsess over our hair and want to find the perfect stylist and products to give us that “Grade A” Look; appearance is what people tend to notice, and as the saying goes, “you never get a second chance, to make a first impression”! I was so impressed with Gabrielle’s work, I had to reach out to her, because I knew my female readers would be tuned in for top notch hair info!
Gabrielle a New York native, always had a love for the arts and once she knew that hair styling was an art form where she could really express her talent, there was no stopping this diva entrepreneur! After attending NYC Hair Institute, she accepted a position as a Vidal Sassoon Salon Rep, from there her career took flight! Gabrielle’s services cater to music, fashion, television and sports industries. She has worked some prominent names in the industry R&B singer and songwriter, Olivia, O Magazine’s Editor at Large Gayle King, and relationship expert Tionna Smalls from “What Chilli Wants”, to name a few.
Gabrielle’s styles are very fresh and chic, nothing but complimentary to her down to earth personality. I’m looking forward to seeing this diva, fulfilling her goals alongside her life’s passion and work. Gabrielle, not only freelances for celebrities, she also works full-time in 2 salons in NYC: Hilightz in Queens and Styles New York in Manhattan; writes a beauty column for an online magazine www.ximagonline.com ‘The Gift of Gab’. She is currently working on updating her portfolio with website launch in Spring 2011, and looking forward to a product line launch Summer 2012.
In the next few years, Gabrielle is looking forward to being featured in well-known publications such as Essence, French Vogue and Bazaar; and seeing her product line on the shelves in Ricky’s NYC and Sephora, along with having a few TV Shows and movies under her belt! Exceptional Hair Styling For the Win!
