Abby Ries Helminiak

Hi! I'm Abby. I am an independent hairstylist & the owner of Gloss Beauty Bar located in downtown Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

I am a blonding expert who specializes in adding all shades of blonde to any color hair while maintaining your hair's integrity & strength. Beautiful hair color is my artistic platform but making women look & feel their very best is my passion.


I am a personality type 8 on The Enneagram; The Challenger. I love gangster rap, celebrity gossip, prestige drama television, murder podcasts, champagne, & sleeping.

I was born & raised in Sheboygan & left for a short stint in Minneapolis where I received my cosmetology education at The Aveda Institute. I now reside on the northeast side of town with my husband, three kids, & pitbull.

Now that you’ve learned some about me, I’d love to hear all about you. If you are an existing client of Gloss, thank you. None of this would be possible without you. If you’re thinking of becoming a client of Gloss, come on in! Nothing would make me happier than meeting you & helping you become the best version of yourself. Whether it’s a little change or ‘the full job’ as I call it, I’m here for you.


Can't wait to meet!
