Daily Inspiration: Meet Darrisha Gibbs

Today we’d like to introduce you to Darrisha Gibbs.

Hi Darrisha, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
I grew interested in the new beauty technique arising as eyelash extensions during college as a hobby in 2015. In 2016, I took the leap of faith and invested in myself with a classic lash training course.

As a certified eyelash technician, I began to grow my business LuvMinks, LLC, network all over Orlando, FL, and surrounding areas. I attended UCF and worked full-time and would lash part-time around my school/work schedule, and on weekends and holidays, I would travel to Miami, FL, to service clients and family.

After months of dedication, I decided to invest in myself again and complete an intermediate lash course of volume eyelash extensions. Over the years, I have had the honor to share my entrepreneur secrets with other women, teaching them how to invest in themselves and learn a skill that could grow and last a lifetime.

I strongly believe growing your skills and knowledge is vital in any field, I grew to love brow artistry so I also became certified in eyebrow tinting. Today, I am continuing to enhance my skills and grow my business as Flaire Artistry.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
A recent struggle has been regrowing my social platform as my initial Instagram was hacked with over 1.5k followers, I lost a lot of connections and memories.

Starting a business in Orlando, far away from my hometown of Miami, FL was a challenge, I had to double my networking skills, travel throughout the city and nearby areas, and meet new people to gain clientele. Lashing part-time while working full-time and attending college full-time was another challenge and once I graduated I was torn between the health and beauty world, debating which to devote myself to full-time.

I decided to continue them both as I love them dearly. Entrepreneurship will not be easy but the thought of being successful fuels me.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am an entrepreneur. I love to explore many different fields. I love beauty, makeup, nails, and hair. I am a 2x certified eyelash artist and I specialize in eyelash extensions: Classics, volume, and mega volume.

I love the idea of enhancing natural beauty for women and helping them find their inner confidence, mentally or physically. What sets me apart from others is my personality, I always provide an authentic experience in a comfortable environment that is often relatable to others.

What are your plans for the future?
My plans for the future are to become an esthetician full-time and cater to all things natural. I look forward to creating a skincare line to educate others on the simplicity of natural ingredients that is beneficial to our daily needs.

I also plan to network around the U.S. and continue to learn and further my knowledge. I look forward to meeting new and more individuals and places.
