Angela Gibbs, CPCP

Angela Gibbs is the Founder of CÖSBEAU (kaz-boh) INK located in Freeport NY. She received her Bachelor of Business Administration in Management from Hofstra University in 2000 before starting a career within the beauty and investment banking industries. After fifteen years of working within the corporate arena, Angela decided to become an entrepreneur, using her artistic gifts in eyelash extensions, tattoo artistry, and scar camouflage to enhance the outward appearance of women.

She has thrived within these areas as an artist and professional, building a strong foundation as a results-driven individual. During her childhood, Angela’s grandmother, Zella, and mother, Linette, inspired her love for beauty, fashion, and entrepreneurism. Zella was a hairstylist who also suffered from alopecia, and Linette was a seamstress who created dolls and clothing for Angela as a child. Both women were “serial” entrepreneurs, creating businesses in beauty, finance, and health & wellness.

Angela is licensed in cosmetology, esthetics, and tattoo artistry in the State of New York. She also holds numerous certifications to include a Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professional (CPCP) designation with the Society of Permanent Cosmetics Professionals.
