Gemy has owned and managed Studio 39 since she opened the salon in 200. She comes from a 4th generation entrepreneurial family which helps meet the challenges of owning a business. She began her styling career as a cutting specialist at Mario Tricoci’s of Chicago and where she learned the art of Vidal Sassoon hair cutting. There she built an impressive client portfolio including First Ladies, pro-athletes, and stage performers. After opening S39 at the age of 24 she took time to invest in top level color education at the L’Oreal Academy in Soho New York where she learned complex color work. Born a blonde and knowing the attention to detail it requires, combined with her advanced training with European Balayage technique’s, made her recognized as Kansas City’s first blonde color specialist. She has created her own unique color style and her “blonde on beige” signature hair color along with the  her own tried and true color formulas and techniques that are used and taught in the Salon. In addition to her staff, she has mentored area stylists and salon owners in her knowledge of color, developed cutting, and business applications. Being a color specialist was her calling but she maintains that her first love is the art of precision hair cutting. Whether short & hip or classic & elegant- this hair cutting master puts high value on the importance of quality cut work. She is an expert hair extension stylist and also one of the area’s first to offer every extension method available. Her business sense, creativity and passion for quality, inspire her as a salon owner. The three things she values most are ” intelligence, hard work and integrity” and is committed to making Salon guest’s experience great. Outside of the Salon you may see her on KCTV5 sharing her knowledge of hair and beauty and loves spending time with her family doing archery and other outdoor sports.
