Owner | Blonde Color Specialist | Master Stylist
If I could rate a 10 star I would because I finally found a blonde color specialist that is the real deal! I love that salon owner Gemy makes education a priority and has built such an AMAZING team who actually work together to get what you want. It is so impressive to watch them! There’s nothing better than going in a salon and seeing everyone on the same page from start from finish. Thank you for making me feel and look beautiful!
Blonde color specialist.
Gemy comes from a 4th generation entrepreneurial family and has owned Studio 39 since 2001. She began her career as a cutting specialist at Mario Tricoci’s, a salon based out of Chicago. There she learned Vidal Sassoon cutting and built a client list that included First Ladies, pro-athletes, and TV personalities. After opening the salon in 2001, she attended L’Oréal Academy in Soho New York to learn advanced color.
Born blonde, she understood the need of specialized focus in this area of color work and she became the first blonde hair specialist in Kansas City as her approach to creating and mastering the perfect shade and tone became know among salon guests then spread by word of mouth. In 2006 she expanded with Balayage and other color techniques and soon her clientele grew to a point she needed help servicing them. This is when she began training her assistants in a specific way that later became the salons systematic education approach for hair cutting, hair color, highlighting and blonde work. Since then, she’s educated area stylists and salon owners as well in business management and how to teach color, cutting and extensions for staff development.
Blonde specialist & content creator.
Her “notes to clients” were tips she put on the first S39 website in 2005. They were so popular, they later became her blog. She was a guest host on KCTV5 Better Beauty until 2018 when she focused on building plans for a second salon location in Lee’s Summit. The completion of the Lakewood location in the spring of 2019 fulfilled her goal of expanding Studio 39. She sees new guests on Tuesdays and a consultation is needed prior. Establishing new color is done at a rate of $100 an hour. A maintenance schedule is created at regular service costs.
