About Angela Gibbs
Founder, Licensed Cosmetologist & Esthetician & Permanent Makeup Artist
Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and consider me as your future artist. Because of this, I hope you don’t mind me sharing some information about myself. =)
I come from an artistic family, where my parents and siblings all loved to draw and/or create from scratch. However, my grandmother, Zella, who was a hairstylist and my mother, Linette, who loved fashion design, inspired my initial exposure to beauty. At a very young age, i was able to watch firsthand as my grandmother did hair, and my mother created dresses. This sparked my initial interest in beauty, which eventually led to my desire to learn everything i could about beauty and business.
Over the past 15 years, i’ve worked in the corporate arena focused on client management, marketing, and quality assurance. During this time, i’d continue to freelance during this time, assisting at weddings, and other events. The turning point in my life came when the last of my maternal aunts passed away of cancer. This experience struck a chord in me as i watched once again the devastating effects that this disease does to one’s outside appearance. Somehow, I wanted to be that artist to revive my client’s beauty and be a part of their transformation through the use of my art.
In 2013, i decided to pursue my passion of transforming lives through art- thus the creation of black beauty bar. I possess 14+ years of combined experience as a cosmetologist, esthetician, and permanent makeup artist. I’ve trained with some the best schools and trainers, which has only propelled my talent. It is my aim to always develop my craft through continuous education and to create an experience with my clients that surpasses our collective expectations.
I know this is a big decision for you, so thank you for taking the time to consider me as your artist. I look forward to collaborating with you on your next transformation!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Our clients love us
I’ve always wanted lash extensions, but was extremely nervous about getting them. After days of scouring the Internet and reading reviews, I stumbled upon this gem on yelp. I reached out to Angela and she was able to fit me in at the last minute. She explained the service to me and talked me through the steps as she performed them. She was comforting and gentle. I placed my trust in her and i am very pleased with the results. I definitely will be returning and she is highly recommended.
Angela at Black Beauty Bar has me looking right! I received the permanent makeup for my eyebrows and I love the results! My brows are thin, sparse, and unveven naturally. However, years of tweeting and waxing had taken a toll on what little brows i had. I’ve spent a number years, plenty of money, and lots of frustration time in the mirror just trying to trying to make them look nice. Sometimes i succeeded but most of the time i failed, Groucho Marx being theend results of those failures. Angela was kind, patient, and most of all gentle. She was an excellent guide of the process from the consultation andthroughout the procedure. She is definitely a perfectionist, which is a must if one is applying permanent makeup. The salon was inviting and intimate. I will definitely be going back for other services and recommending black beauty bar to others!
Angela is amazing! I have gotten lash extensions as well as permanent makeup eye liner and eye brow coloring. she is extremely gentle and patient, especially with someone like myself who tears excessively. She is a perfectionist, which is exactly the skill you want for someone that is applying permanent make up. The location is spacious, warm and inviting. Angie will be my go to person for lashes, and anything other services she adds to her business. She is the best!!
