Vanessa Gamboa

Hairstylist & Bridal Hair Specialist (she/her)


Vanessa was born in Laredo, Texas but was raised in Austin. She loves her hometown and heritage but has an affinity for Austin. Since she was a little girl, she has always been interested in hair: "I was doing curls, braids, and cutting hair for my closest friends and family." Vanessa received her certification from the Aveda Institute in Austin and graduated in February 2019. Her passion for hair lies in cutting, creating shapes from the inside out with scissors, and showing clients how to style their hair.

When Vanessa is not creating beautiful hair from behind the chair, she loves dancing because it makes her feel connected to her heritage. "Put me on a dance floor and play some Cumbia or Reggaeton, and good luck taking me away!" Another passion of hers is cooking. Her specialty is making homemade green enchiladas, and she loves teaching people how to make them perfectly. "I grew up speaking Spanish, am bilingual, and love teaching others by helping them practice new languages and aiding them in their studies."

"The best thing about my industry is meeting new people from many different backgrounds. Being a part of Urban Betty has been a wonderful experience; it feels like an extension of my family and fills me with pride. I’m here to spread my joy for creating beautiful hair across Austin, TX."
