More About Abi:

Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, Abi has been a lover of all things beauty since she was 22 years old. Getting her start by giving makeup applications to her colleagues at her TV station job, she later left her job as a journalist to pursue her passion. She attended the Paul Mitchell Academy School NYC and graduated as a cosmetologist at the top of her class. After graduating in 2015, fate led Abi to meeting editorial hairstylist Addam Moreno, who has over 25 years of experience in the industry and multiple publications under his belt. Abi became Addam’s protégé for 2 years and quickly began to excel in the art of hair & formal styling. It was during this time that she decided to further her abilities within makeup by taking classes with makeup masters Nicky Posley and Jordan Liberty. Advancing her studies by attending a 6 month master’s program at The Make Up For Ever Academy, Abi learned from some of the best in the business, including Dani Sanz, Florian David, Michela Wariebi, and Noemie Contessi, just to name a few. She has also worked in numerous New York Fashion Weeks since 2017 and has been featured in publications such as Yoga Journal, Miami Quarterly Spring 2017, and Elegant Magazine. Abi’s love for everything bridal came naturally to her after starting in the beauty industry as a hair stylist. She understands what goes into making a bride look and feel their best on the most important day of their life. Every bride holds a special place in Abi’s heart and as a lover of love, she would love to help you celebrate your wedding day.
