THE GLAM SHOP CEO
Atlanta, GA native Sierra Gates, is a walking testimony, that God will favor those who don’t lose faith and continue to walk into their purpose. Unexpectedly and beyond her control, Sierra had her first child at the age of 15 and dropped out of high school at the age of 16. With no support from her parents, or anybody for that matter, Sierra had to find a way to make a way for herself and her daughter. With her daughter being her motivation, Sierra realized that she could turn her longtime passion for make up into a long term career, she started freelancing and building up her clientele and eventually she became one of the biggest make up artist in the city. Sierra’s demand continued to grow so much that she decided that it was time for her to take her make up career to another level. In 2010, she decided to invest into her business on a larger scale by opening her first ever salon, the infamous Glam Shop! Aside from all of her success from the Glam Shop, Sierra’s career continues to flourish. In 2016 Sierra was casted on one of the biggest reality shows to date, “Love & Hip Hop” Atlanta. However, contrary to the negative opinions of the show, Sierra has been able to use the platform to spread positivity, and has molded into a business woman who is currently bringing in more than six figures every year by doing what she loves, making people feel beautiful and by teaching others the life changing skill that has changed her life tremendously, the art of microblading. Sierra has become one of the best microblading artist in the south east, and is using her platform to teach others the same skill so that their financial situations can change drastically all while still following her passion. Sierra is continuing to build her beauty empire, as she has plans to open up more Glam Shop locations, take microblading to the next level and she is gearing up to launch her new cosmetics line, "Sierra's Secrets Cosmetics”, which features quality products made for any and everyone to enjoy. In addition to her beauty endeavors, Sierra would like to become an advocate for teen moms and a mentor for the youth who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. She would like to use her story as an example of never giving up and mentor those who might find themselves in a position that she was in only a few years ago. Sierra believes that all of her blessings are due to her faithfulness, and will continue to use her platform to do God’s work.
