Gabi Martinez HAIR ARTIST

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GET INTO THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY? As a little girl, I always knew that I wanted to have a career that allowed me to be an independent woman. Becoming a hairstylist was a serendipitous moment in my life. After I finished high school and explored options through a community college, I began to feel hopeless about my future. When a friend invited me to enroll in beauty school, I didn't realize then that I was taking my first steps into a career that would allow me to build the life I always wanted. I was never inspired to get into the beauty industry, but instead, the beauty industry inspired me to be the women I am today. I am proud to say that I am a woman who has a career full of passion and creativity and because of that I am free.

 

WHAT STYLES AND HAIR TYPES DO YOU MOST ENJOY CREATING AND WORKING WITH? I love creating looks that allow the client's natural hair texture come to life. Hair should be effortless. I am inspired by the seventies boho lived-in style, as well as the grunge era, because they allow hair to live in its natural habitat. A blunt bob will always be my number one love. When it comes to color, I love that lived-in beachy hair vibe for my West Coast babes.

 

FAVORITE Bb. PRODUCT: Thickening Dry Spun Finish for the perfect lived-in hair!

 

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: Having the opportunity to be a Bumble and bumble Network Educator allowed me to not only travel to New York and learn from the best, but also pushed me out of my comfort zone. As a Bb. NE, I enhanced my skills with the straight razor and styling.

 

After tapping into the world of education as a hairstylist, I was motivated to go back to school and get my Bachelors in Communication Studies at San Jose State. I am proud to say that I graduated with my BA in May of 2017.

 

I specialize in balayage/handpainting, lived-in hair, vivid colors, precision cuts, and dry cutting.
