I have always been passionate about doing hair. When I started as a hair dresser eighteen years ago, I always had a vision of opening my own salon. With the support of my family and co-workers, Gemini opened in February 2012. Gemini is our home away from home, and I want everyone who comes in to experience the same comfort.
I bring my education and passion in art, design and theatre to my 27 years of hair styling and color. Whether a flair for the dramatic or a low maintenance hairstyle, I work with your personal style, texture, and lifestyle to create your look. I’m crazy for redheads, love creative perming techniques and adding extensions to thicken thinning hair or lengthen.
I’ve been working as a hairstylist for more than 28 years. I feel truly blessed for my wonderful, loyal clientele. I enjoy cutting, coloring, highlighting and helping my curly haired clients learn to manage their curls.
I started as a hairdresser 16 years ago here in the bay area. To this day I love being able to create an enjoyable experience for my clients from start to finish! I have found that creating a new look for someone and transforming their inner beauty to the outside is very rewarding. I specialize in hair extensions, giving short hair the ultimate makeover with added length and voluminous body! It’s fun to get creative and find the perfect color or hairstyle for someone looking for something new or different.
Carrying over 7 years as a professional stylist, I graduated from the Cosmetology Program at San Jose City College. My desire to help those around me look, and feel more like their inner selves drove me to become a stylist. I started my career assisting one of the best stylists in San Jose for two years and have now joined her team at this new and amazing salon! I cater to men, women and children and love to style and design hair for any special event. I truly enjoy working with my clients to create amazing haircuts and colors that fit their personality, lifestyle and image.
I have been a hairdresser for 15 years, during which I have met so many wonderful and loyal clients. What I love the most about being a hairdresser is meeting people and helping them meet their hair design goals. In 2001 I had the opportunity to attend the Redken Academy in New York City, where I learned from the most knowledgeable hairdresser in the world. I still continue to attend educational hair design classes to provide the latest trends to my clients. I hope to continue to work with great people and make them feel priceless.
I have had a passion for hair and makeup since I was young and officially became a licensed cosmetologist in 2006. I love this industry because it combines all my favorite things: hair, art, color, creative freedom, and great conversation. Being able to connect with my clients on a personal and professional level is very rewarding and keeps me passionate in what I do. I can’t wait to see what the future holds and look forward to working with new clients.
I have been a professional hairstylist for over 25 years. My passion for styling hair came naturally to me at a very young age. I enjoy working with clients and love making them look and feel their best. I love creating fun, elegant and timeless hairstyles for both men and women of all ages. Being able to transform someone’s overall look through a haircut or color is very rewarding. A client once told me that “hairdressers are people that clients look forward to seeing” and that definitely put a smile on my face. I feel very blessed to be in the profession that I am in. I have learned so much from my wonderful clients about life and I continue to do so.
Over the years I have had formal color and cutting training with many different educators such as Vidal Sasoon, Bumble and Bumble, Redken, Kevin Murphy and Label M. I believe it is important to stay passionate for the latest styles in coloring and cutting but also be able to stay true to classic practical styles as well. I value and love working for a fashion forward savvy salon like Gemini!
I’m a nail technician with years of experience in my craft. I offer shellac, pedicures and more! I love my loyal clientele and enjoy coming to work every day to pamper my clients!
I went into permanent hair removal after having work done myself. It was going to be a temporary career until I figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up….that was over 30 years ago! It has been immensely rewarding, I love my clientele and am blessed to still look forward to going to work every day for so many years.
