In 2022 there are lots of beauty and wellness brands to go around. But only so many who are real, reliable, and really deliver with branding clientele. Branding with Tre’byen is here to set a new standard in branding, rebranding, and taking brands in the fashion and beauty world to the next level. Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting down with wellness and beauty expert Cris Gambrell and she expanded on Tre’byen as a business and supporter of the local community. Here is Tre’byen in Gambrell’s own words.

What are some of the brands that have done branding with Tre’byen thus far?
Tre`byen has already had the opportunity to work with two up-and-coming brands, M:Salon out of Sacramento, California owned by Marichal Brown alongside his brother Rodney Brown.

Three words to describe your brand?
Three words to describe my brand would be, innovative, creative, and understanding.
What are your goals with your brand today and five years from now?
My goal in the next 5 years is to be the firm that brands will always need to get them to their next level. To help companies see their visions go beyond what they already had in mind. To become not only useful to the companies or brands in the United States but internationally as well.
Why should consumers come to you instead of consulting with another brand?
Personal Care businesses should seek out Tre`byen because unlike some companies that only look at numbers we look at the entire vision. Personally, I have been in this field for 21 years as a cosmetologist, instructor, platform artist, and fashion and hair show coordinator. I understand the industry’s target audience, as well as how to bring my ideas to them. From thinking outside the box to giving brands the needed attention to detail, and care as if it were my own. My personal expertise in this field gives me an understanding of how to help brands grow and stand out from their competition.
What makes Tre’byen stand out from other brands in your field?
We stand out due to the fact that you can give Tre’byen your ideas and we will come up with the best plan suited for your brand. Tre’byen will help with recreating your salon, beauty school, or how your business product looks. Tre’byen also helps with spectacular events, and/or launch parties. Our company is always looking to provide an experience you will never forget.
