Meet Darrisha Gibbs

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

Hi Darrisha, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I first 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 and network all over Orlando, FL and surrounding areas. I would lash part-time around my school 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 to other women, teach how to invest in themselves and learn a skill that would last a lifetime. Today I am continuing to enhance my skills and grow my business as Darjoy Cosmetics.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
My first struggle was starting a business in Orlando, far away from my hometown of Miami, FL. I had to double my networking skills, travel throughout the city and nearby areas, and meet new people to gain clientele. Another struggle was lashing part-time while working full-time in my career.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I offer Eyelash Extensions and Brow Art services, Natural Shea Butter to Nourish skin. I plan to expand into mentorship in the future.

Any big plans?
My plans for the future is to become an esthetician full time and cater to all things beauty.
