Rebecca Gibson, a.k.a The Braid Chick, owner of Empire Beauty Bar, a Black-owned braiding hair salon in Cincinnati, discovered a love of braids at a young age as she watched her grandmother do hair.

She built a successful career in the healthcare industry, but as soon as Rebecca had the opportunity to jump full-time into the beauty industry, she launched Empire Beauty Bar.

While pursuing her own entrepreneurial journey, Rebecca lifts others up along the way – she launched the Empire Braid License course to teach other women how to braid and start their own salon businesses.
