She moved to Los Angeles and began working as a stylist for television. While there, she also began modeling for Wilhelmina and gained connections in the advertising community of LA. She sharpened her skills for fashion and style in LA. and took her knowledge of advertising styling to the east coast. She moved to South Carolina and worked on a production set focusing on wardrobes, makeup, and hair. She learned even more about fashion personalities and hair styling while in show business.

    Gayle then was given the opportunity to work for Oschner in their Image Center. This is where she learned just how much she enjoyed giving back. While at Oschner she worked side by side with the plastic surgery, oncology, dermatology, and infectious disease departments. Gayle handled all the makeovers and was trained in San Fransisco on Camouflage Therapy for burn survivors and the transformative line of skin care-Obagi. Gayle then built a salon in her home so she she could be closer to her growing family. From there she was encouraged by her husband to open a salon and mentor young stylists.On a trip to California Gayle fell in love with the blow out concept and shortly thereafter Air opened as the first of its kind in Louisiana. The rest is history. Gayle currently specializes in cuts and color at Air however she spends majority of her time coaching other stylists.
