Bloomingdale’s Supports the Next Girl Boss

CEO Gabby Goodwin

Gabby Goodwin founded Confidence, her line of anti-slip barrettes when she was only 7 years old, making her one of the youngest CEOs ever. Motivated by the fact that she was constantly losing her barrettes and her mother Rozalynn was fed up by the cheap options on the market, Goodwin sought to make a much-improved hair accessory—the patented Double-Face Double Snap Barrett. The now 15-year-old girl boss told Bloomingdale’s, which has picked up her line, about her a-ha moment of success: “When the business and I started to get recognition locally, and I realized my family and I had a village that wouldn’t let us fail.” In addition to the anti-slip GaBBY bows, Confidence by Gabby Goodwin offers plant-based hair care, a children’s book that tells her story and mentorship opportunities. According to the website, Confidence is planning to open a retail/salon concept in the near future.
