Welcome to gibsonchop.com! My name is Emily Gibson. I’m a wife, mom, hairstylist, blogger, nature lover, military spouse, and author. From life behind the chair, travel photos & experiences from around the globe, gibsonchop is just that, chopped!
My family has certainly moved around a lot over the years. I’m originally from Oklahoma. Moved to Denver, CO when I was 21, boy was that a long time ago. Time has flown. I have visited 49 out of the 50 states in the USA, with my Texas man. Alaska, I can’t wait to see you…While living in Hawaii we were blessed with our son Mayer. We’ve explored 40 countries and have received mail in; Oklahoma, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Hawaii, Georgia, Connecticut, Washington state, Italy, Portugal, the island of Guam and California. My explorations into different regions around the world have inspired this blog. I also need a place for my salon and spa menu, so why not chop it up and mix it all here. I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist working behind the chair since 2002. After I left my business Bellezza Dentro Salon, located in downtown Denver, Colorado, I decided to open up an in home spa and salon to service fellow military spouses and locals within the community. In working out of a designated space in my home, it gives me the flexibility to always be available for my son.
I also like to pick up small bits while exploring and share them with you. So random contests happen here. Anything from salon and spa products and items from different adventures from around the globe. Along with chopping and dyeing hair, I’ve written a fiction novel called The Chopped Gem. You can purchase it at Waterstones, Barnes& Noble online, Amazon, Amazon UK and in random book stores.
I enjoy spending time and creating memories with my family, watching my son fall in love with his desires in living, meeting new people, traveling, dinner parties, lots of laughter, writing, working behind the chair, wine, and catching random crazy moments around me on disk. Okay enough about me in this About Me section. Mamma Mia
Anyhow, again, welcome. I went off course in my about me thing…..Ahhhh, these fingers.
Cheers to you and living life. Thanks for stopping by the chop shop. Emily Gibson
