A specialist in coloring curly and coily hair, Barri Gibson is on a dual mission to help women of color celebrate their hair, and to educate fellow hairstylists to expand and refine their skills.
She is the owner of the The Curlective in Bloomfield, New Jersey, which has been recognized by Essence Magazine as a Standout Salon due to her talent as a colorist and the outstanding experience she provides for her clients. Her work has been featured in the Bavity x Sephora beauty campaign, Essence Fest virtual beauty summit 2021, Jet magazine, and Yahoo Beauty.
Her professional approach aligns perfectly with the Moroccanoil focus on nourished, healthy-looking hair. “I’m passionate about haircare because it’s the foundation of beautiful styling,” she says. “Healthy hair shines and bounces.” She first fell in love with Moroccanoil Treatment, then with the entire product line, because of “how well every product works to create a healthier canvas.”
Barri is excited to work with Moroccanoil as the brand expands both its Professional Haircolor Collection and its education platform, as a part of a supportive community of professionals. “I make a point to surround myself with those who inspire and support me wholeheartedly,” she says, “I’m motivated by the team around me.”
