Our Team

Commitment to Quality

The Studio 39 Brand strives to set a standard in Kansas City. Part of our Best practice is Due Diligence which means we are transparent in providing you educated options on price and service. Our stylists have specialised skills and work as a salon team, so it’s not uncommon to have 2 people working together with a guest. When you see a “specialist” that is a service the stylist excels in.

Salon Master Stylists and Colorists

The history of our industry has many factors, but a key figure in shaping the salon matrix of skill was an iconic stylist named Vidal Sassoon who owned high end salons around the world.  He believed the foundation of all hair style is achieved through a haircut because you can’t blend extensions, compliment color, or keep hair healthy without cutting.

Beauty schools focus on basics for graduates to pass a decades old State Board test that is compiled of services most modern salons don’t offer.  Our industry is trend driven which is why beauty schools encourage graduates to seek salons that offer mentor programs, but few salons offer this anymore since it requires costly salon resources. As a result salon quality has slowly decreased over time. If you’ve ever have had a bad cut, or left a salon thinking it was a good visit because you don’t “hate” your hair, that’s a prime example of this reality. 

Master Stylists are Mentored By other Master Stylists

Before social media, booth rental, and chain salons, there was a salons helped stylists grow through mentoring. A good stylist good understands anatomy and chemistry. Studio 39 owner was mentored by a salon owner who was a leader in the salon world, so we continue mentorship as well. practice here because it creates talented stylists early in their career. Cultivated skill gives our team confidence in their level of work obtained from training by a real Master Stylist.
