    Sabrina "Brie" Rowe: Celebrity Manicurist Talks Nails And The Pressures Of Finding A Love Of Our Own

    Women love going to the hairdresser to get beautified. It’s usually our Saturday ritual. But, now it’s all about the nails! Yes, nail art is of the things us as women love to do. Getting your nails done is a treat and it’s very attractive. Being a woman we always have to look as good as we feel and feel as good as we look. I had the liberty to sit down with celebrity manicurist and author Sabrina Rowe! She’s done nails for Oprah Winfrey, Demi Moore, Coretta Scott King, Tyler Perry, Martin Lawrence, Ben Stiller and more. Being in the business for over twenty years is not only a blessing. Sabrina is also an author with debut novel called “ Single In The City: My Passport to Boaz.”

    Starting out doing nails, Sabrina started to do nails back at home. She then moved to Atlanta and started her nail business. “ I started to put myself out there. In Atlanta I felt that there was something missing in the nail business. I wanted to work celebrities”, Rowe says. She was being referred to a lot of people and then it took off from there. “ I don’t want people to think that they don’t have to do hard work because you do. It won’t just come to you”, Sabrina explains. While talking to Sabrina I could tell that she means business. On her wish list next are Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Jaime Foxx! She’s also starting a school with her twin sister, Sharlinda Rowe-Parker and they will introduce a new arm of their Tu La 2 umbrella, the Tu La 2 Nail School in Atlanta, GA. This school will teach the proper way to do nails, learn techniques, curriculum and teach the proper way of sanitizing as a manicurist etc. The school will be opening this year

    Ms. Rowe was also on the reality show called “ Big Rich Atlanta”. She’s gotten a lot of support from her fans. She enjoyed doing the show and would do it again. Sabrina says, “ It’s a lot of work. But I enjoyed it.” Sometimes being in reality TV it can be a positive or negative experience. Luckily, for Sabrina it was a positive one. I asked Sabrina, “ How did you family feel about you being involved in reality TV?” Sabrina said, “ My family was very supportive especially my twin sister and mother. I would not have done the show if they weren’t supportive of it.” It’s good that her family were okay with the show.

    I had to get the scoop about Sabrina’s book, “Single In The City: My Passport to Boaz.” She talks about how it’s hard for single women to find a good man. We stayed on this topic for a long while and one of the things that Sabrina says is that women often settle just to say that they have a boyfriend. “ I’m 42 and I’m single. I haven’t made it this far in my age to settle so I won’t” Sabrina says. I couldn’t agree with her more. We spoke about how some women will stay in bad situations just to have a man. Personally, I don’t agree with that but people will do what they want. “ I think that women do know their worth but I feel that they just want to belong with someone so badly that they put up with a lot of things” Sabrina says. Sabrina says that the hardest part of being single is to find someone that is 100% percent single. A lot of men today who aren’t married but in a relationship will say that they are single when in reality you are available. Sabrina’s book can be found on amazon.com. I look forward to talking to Ms. Rowe again soon and maybe one day she can do my nails and we can chat about how we found our Boaz! Sabrina it was a pleasure talking to you and I thank you for taking the time out to interview with me.
