If I could rate a 10 star I would! 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!

Gemy has owned and managed Studio 39 since 2001. She comes from a 4th generation entrepreneurial family, but began her career as a cutting specialist at Mario Tricoci’s of Chicago in 1996. There she learned the art of Vidal Sassoon hair cutting and built an impressive client portfolio including First Ladies, pro-athletes, and stage performers. After opening the salon in 2001, she invested in top level color education. She traveled to New York multiple times to attend advanced training at the L’Oreal Academy in Soho. Born blonde, she understands the attention to detail it requires. It became an area of focus work for her in 2005 when true specialty color work was rare. She expanded her freehand work with Balayage hair painting. By 2006 the salon started noticing multiple new clients calling for ” the blonde specialist”. Doing what she loved later made her recognized as Kansas City’s first blonde/platinum focus colorist. Others followed suit but she exclusively created the salons unique approach to service, specifically color. Her blonde on beige signature color formulas and techniques are taught in the Salon. In addition to her staff, she has trained area stylists and salon owners in advanced cutting, color, and business application. Being a color specialist came naturally but her passion is artistic cutting, and prioritizes the importance of quality cutting in the salon. In 2007 she became certified in multiple extension techniques and trained certain stylists to help with extensions clientele. You may have seen her on KCTV5 sharing expertise on hair and beauty, but she is currently working on the next business location. She prefers being on the salon floor, but splits her time between there and business. Read her blog to learn how she educates in a straightforward way. If you see her on the salon floor say hello because she loves meeting new guests and catching up with old friends. Outside of the salon she enjoys visiting historical places with her family and reading.
