Studio 39 Salon Owner & Brand Creator
Blonde 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 began her career as a cutting specialist at Mario Tricoci’s of Chicago where she learned Vidal Sassoon cutting. There her client list included First Ladies, pro-athletes, and TV personalities. She comes from a 4th generation entrepreneurial family and opened Studio 39 at age 24 in 2001. After opening, she attended L’Oréal Academy in Soho, New York to learn advanced salon hair color.
Born blonde, she saw the void within the industry for niche color work, so she became the first blonde hair specialist in Kansas City. Her approach to creating and mastering the perfect blonde tone became well known and her clientele grew by word of mouth. When she expanded into Balayage and other specialty techniques in 2006, her clientele tripled. To aide with service management, she began training her assistants a specific way which is the origin of the Studio 39 education program. Training included hair cutting, hair color, highlighting and blonde work. Now it has expanded training to salon business management and staff development.
Blonde specialist & content creator.
Her “notes to clients” were tips on the first S39 website in 2005, which were so popular they became her blog. One reader was a local news producer who invited her to guest host on KCTV5 Better Beauty. For 3 years she did multiple segments, until building plans shifted her focus to a second salon in 2018 for the Lakewood location. In the spring of 2019 the Lee’s Summit salon location opened, fulfilling her goal of expanding Studio 39 out of downtown KC.
She intermittently takes new clients depending on her schedule. Establishing new color is done at hourly rates and maintenance is at regular service costs.
