Vanessa Gamboa



Vanessa was born in Laredo, Texas but was raised in Austin. She loves her hometown and heritage but has an affinity for Austin. She always had an interest in hair since she was a little girl, "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 her scissors, and showing clients how to easily style their hair.

When Vannessa 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 dancefloor 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 loves teaching people how to make them perfectly. "I grew up speaking Spanish, am bilingual, and love teaching other people by helping them practice new languages and aiding them in their studies."

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