Co-Artistic Director of Hair Color, Kaizen Education
For Julie, education is a constant and hair color is all about freedom. A seasoned stylist and colorist, Julie studied at the Casal Aveda Institute and spent four years specializing in hair color at an Ohio-based Aveda salon. In 2015, she moved to Chicago to work at Ladies & Gentlemen Salon & Spa, where she assisted under Sal Misseri. She is a certified Davines brand ambassador, and a member of the Cosmetologist of Chicago NextGen team. Julie's thirst for learning extends to her teaching, where her approach is defined by a desire to share knowledge and passion amongst the community. She enjoys the creative freedom of developing the perfect tint, but she especially loves that moment when a client is finally free to be themself-or somebody else-thanks to their new look.
Since 2016, Gunny has been on the fast track of education and experience. Beginning her career under the wing of Sal Misseri, her intensive day to day training has shaped her into the talented, behind the chair stylist she is today. After winning her first award in 2017, the ABS Global Image Award, she went on to travel assisting in color, cutting, and styling classes everywhere from London to Italy and Alaska to Virginia. Taking home the Davines Mask with Vibrachrom color competition win in 2017, she traveled with the entire Kaizen Education team to Parma, Italy for a week of styling, coloring, and all around assisting the team.
