About Sabrina Adaba
Sabrina Adaba Beauty is a New York City-based mobile beauty vendor. We specialize in creating breathtaking hair and makeup looks for special occasions including weddings, engagements, baby showers, and the like. All of our artists are licensed and have expertise with ALL hair textures and skin tones...as a matter of fact, we encourage and welcome both naturalistas and the deeply melanated!
Our founder Sabrina Adaba (natural since 2003!) has over 17 years of natural hair care and styling experience, and is on a mission to see naturally textured hair at the forefront of bridal beauty. This passion and expertise stem from her dedication to professional development, starting with American Beauty School where she received her cosmetology license, as well as her Makeup for Photography Certificate from Makeup Forever in 2007. Her skillful and artistic bridal styling is thanks to the additional training she completed from Vidal Sassoon, IBS, Ulyana Aster, Dawn Bradley, Hair & Makeup by Steph, and Sharon Blaine. She has also followed the tutelage of natural haircare superstars Tippi Shorter, Charlotte Mensah, and Ursula Stephens.
Born & raised in the Bronx, this New York City-based mobile Hair Artist’s work has been featured in Vanity Fair, Elle Bulgaria, Glamour Bulgaria, Manhattan Brides, the New York Post, PLUS Model Magazine, Deux Homme, Essence, and other print, film, and commercial publications. In addition, for several years she worked as a Pro Artist for L'Oreal Paris, and soon after, she became the lead hair stylist for Pucker Makeup Studio in the fashionable SoHo area of NYC.
Sabrina is highly inspired by the versatility of natural hair, and the Afro-futuristic cultural aesthetic, amongst other themes such as fine art, anime, history and other artists. She’s always ready to test shoot and to find other creatives to team build and inspire new creative works!
