Gemy Studio 39 Owner

 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 opened Studio 39 at age 24. She began her career as a cutting specialist at Mario Tricoci’s 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 hair color. 

Born blonde, she understood the need in the salon industry to create a niche for specialized blonde color work, so she became the first blonde hair specialist in Kansas City. Her approach to creating and mastering the perfect shade and tone became know among salon guests and spread by word of mouth. In 2006 she expanded with Balayage and other color techniques. Soon her clientele grew to over 600 and she needed help servicing them. This is when she began training her assistants in a specific way that later became the salons education program for hair cutting, hair color, highlighting and blonde work. Since then, she’s also helped train area stylists and salon owners in business management and staff development.  

Blonde specialist & content creator.

Her “notes to clients” were the first blogs that 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 intermittently takes new clients depending on schedule. Establishing new color is done at a rate of $100 an hour. A maintenance schedule is created at regular service costs.


💎 High Demand Stylist

Plan ahead to visit Gemy at either Location as she sees guests on certain days of her schedule at each location. New guests are booked on Tuesdays at Lakewood and Downtown KC.
