Artistic Team Tryouts 2019


Gabi Ibarra


Congratulations to Gabi Ibarra on making the Knockouts Artistic Team! Gabi is the assistant managers at our Roswell, GA location and has been with KO since January 2020. She obtained her cosmetology degree in 2014 and is licensed in the states Georgia, Tennessee and Texas. She also received a BFA in Fashion Marketing & Management from the Art Institute of Dallas in 2018. Gabi chose a career in hair because she loves the idea of helping others feel good. She appreciates that she can express herself through the details of her work AND the details of her own appearance with the freedom to have tattoos and piercings without being judged. She is a firm believer in “you don’t know what you don’t know”, which is what led her to try out for the Artistic Team. She is excited to travel with the team, learn new trends and be a positive role model. When Gabi isn’t in the shop cutting hair you might find her hard at work on a Pinterest DIY or doing arts and crafts with her children Kaliah, 3 and Kashton, 2. Knockouts is excited to have Gabi on the Artistic Team! Look for her and the rest of the team at BarberCon 2021 in Austin, Texas!

Jamie Triplett


Congratulations to Jamie Triplett on making the Knockouts Artistic Team! Jamie has been with Knockouts – Fort Smith, AK - for over a year. She graduated from Arthur’s Beauty College in October 2015 with the goal of helping people create their own personal style & having a career she enjoyed showing up for every day. Jamie believes hair says a lot about who you are and she takes great pride in making the extra effort to help clients. Her favorite service is the “Heavyweight” because it gives her a few more minutes to pamper her clients and help them relax. She tried out for the Artistic Team with the hope of becoming a positive mentor in the men’s hair industry and educating others. Jamie is also excited to be a part of Knockouts future growth with such a talented group of women. Jamie takes the time to enjoy the little things in life. She enjoys kayaking, the outdoors, thrifting & oddities, shopping, winning at go-karts, Dr. Phil, true crime and spending time with her husband, Joey, wife Crystal and their 12 year old son Jamison.

Jeanette Olbeda


Congratulations to Jeanette Olbeda on making the Knockouts Artistic Team! Jeanette is the manager of our New Braunfels, TX location and has been with Knockouts for a year and a half. She is licensed in cosmetology and barbering. She graduated from SPC in August 2010. Jeanette lives by the idea that haircutting and styling are an art and loves being an artist behind the chair. Her favorite service is the “KO Shave Package” because it gives her the chance to really make someone feel good with a precise cut, relaxing shampoo and clean shave. Jeanette’s passion and love of helping and teaching others, along with her belief that continuing education is key, are just a few reasons she tried out for the Artistic Team. She is most excited to represent Knockouts and help others become successful.
