Gabrielle Allen, a New Orleans-based hairstylist and studio owner, has turned her salon into a six-figure hair empire by leveraging the power of social media. Even more, she is already helping other industry professionals to do the same through her program, “From Instagram to Instant Clients.”
A veteran in the natural hair care industry, Gabrielle has been using social media to share her natural hair care journey since 2009. Noticing a lack of natural hair care resources, she started her own blog, StrawberriCurls, which acted as a resource for other natural-haired women worldwide. She later went on to open her own salon called Shades Studio in New Orleans.
“I love hair,” said Allen.
“Social media has played a huge part in my success and growth as a businesswoman, stylist, and influencer.”
“The beauty and hair care industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. There’s room for us all! Through my classes, my goal is to help other industry professionals elevate their profile and scale their businesses in ways they could not have imagined doing on their own.”
