Gwen Homan

Co-Owner +
Marketing Director +
Financial Officer

“Building a business and contributing to the Marysville community has been such an honor. Creating a sacred space where guests, especially women, can come to relax, rejuvenate and feel pampered has always been my goal.”

 

Cherishing the interaction and connection with all who walk through the door at Studio 31, Gwen strives to make each guest feel welcome and completely at home. Mentoring and building her staff of highly trained stylists is of the upmost importance to ensure every guest not only has a great experience, but is completely satisfied with their look when they walk out the door.

 

When she's not in the salon, she loves to spend her time traveling, cooking, and being outdoors with her husband and 3 dogs.

Dayna Gorman

Co-Owner +
Salon Director

As Salon Director at Studio 31, Dayna is fueled by the desire to elevate the experience each and every guest has when they enter Studio 31.   You are sure to love her warm and outgoing personality and when you’re sitting in her chair, it’s clear she is only focused on you. In a world of super connectivity, a real human interaction has become quite a commodity.

Dayna says it’s her job to make guests feel like the world sees them as the stunning creatures they are, and she wants that feeling to last longer than the blow dry.

 

Educating her guests to find solutions for their everyday challenges and coaching them on how to re-create their look at home is paramount to her. With education and drive being in her DNA, she makes continuing education and the education of the 31 team her top priority as Lead Educator for our Team.

Dayna loves creating beautiful low maintenance “lived-in” looks when it comes to hair color.  If you want that coveted natural, “Born with it” look, Dayna is your girl!

 

Nicknamed the “Texture Queen,” Dayna is amazing with all textures and thicknesses of hair. She LOVES the trans-formative power of a Brazilian Blowout and is a true specialist with this method to tame unruly hair. She is also a certified DevaCurl Cutting Specialist for curly hair and loves taking the time and attention to detail needed to give curly girls their best look.

Nicole Blevins

Lead Stylist + Team
Davines Ambassador

Thinking back on her childhood, Nicki can remember wanting to be nothing other than a hair stylist. This dream has been her driving passion ever since she started her hair journey in 2011 and she says she still continues to fall in love with what she does every day. She would describe herself as an eclectic artist who strives to deliver the right look for each of her guests. Nicki prides herself in listening to each guest and approaching each head of hair differently, considering the natural hair type and personal style.

 

She believes educating her guests is of utmost importance and wants to ensure she is sending the right tools, products and tips home so that her guests can easily re-create their look themselves.

 

Having extreme passion for creative coloring and Razor Artistry for short hair, she is constantly staying ahead of the curve by receiving advanced training in these areas, even doing a short stint as a Donald Scott platform artist. 

Being our Lead Stylist, she is responsible for training + mentoring our new stylists and making sure she is continuously up to date on all the latest happenings with the industry + with Davines, our hair care and color line.

Guests will love her warm and outgoing personality and it’s clear that when you’re in her chair, she is only focused on you.  She just has such an infectious personality and really makes sure to care for you as an individual, not just your hair!

 You are sure to love your hair as well as feel completely taken care of by Nicki!

 

When she's not behind the chair, you can bet she's outside enjoying nature with her family, camping or attending racing events with her 5 kiddos.

Her passion lies in

crafting looks that compliment her guests' unique needs and caring for the whole person.  Specializing in services ranging from color to cuts to texture services and brow maintenance.

But big color and texture transformations excite her the most.  She is our only stylist who does perming services because she absolutely loves that trans-formative process.

She works hard to share her knowledge and works to ensure that each guest leaves feeling confident in their look and ability to care for it themselves at home.

With Megan's warm and inviting demeanor, you are sure to feel right at home in her chair and confident leaving with your new look!

When she's not behind the chair, she enjoys spending time with family, listening to music, reading and watching movies.

Acting early on her passion, Paige enrolled in Beauty school right after high 

school, and has never looked back.  Having an excitement for education + pushing the envelope on her skills keeps her lit up with passion.

Always eager to learn and develop her craft, her favorite thing about this industry is the ability to make her guests look great and feel more confident about themselves. She loves being able to interact with people, find new ways to enhance their style, and meet their needs.  Paige is our blonding specialist

and really excels at giving her guests BIG results.  If you're looking for that perfect platinum look- she's your girl.

 

Paige merges stylish sophistication with youthful vitality to produce new and exciting looks, and regardless of the request, she will work hard to meet

and exceed your expectations each

Her goal is to give each client their dream hair while keeping it strong and healthy. 

 

 Paige has a very warm and welcoming personality which makes her guests feel comfortable every step of the way. Her product knowledge enables her to provide, recommend, and administer the finest hair treatments to create and preserve your new look.  

When she's not behind the chair, she enjoys spending time at home with family, and being a cat mom to her 2 cats.

In the summertime, you can find her fishing and camping on the weekends.

Kennedy is the newest member of our team and although she hasn’t been with us long, she’s integrated into our team flawlessly and blown us away with her hunger, dedication and skill set. 

 

She says choosing to start her career at Studio 31 was important to her because she not only wanted to remain in Marysville where she loves the small town vibe and all the people in it; she wanted to be in a salon where her teammates were also her family and she could see herself being supported, coached and immediately at ease. 

Kennedy has a very calm, laid back vibe and a welcoming personality which will make her guests feel comfortable every step of the way.  Being an artistic and creative person, she most enjoys creating fun and edgy looks. 

 

Working with people to achieve their individualized style is her passion and she says she strives to showcase the beauty of her guests, both inward and out.  Making people look and feel great AND have an awesome time in her chair is what excites her to begin her hair journey!

If you’re looking for a new style or a stylist who takes the salon experience to a whole new level, Kennedy is the girl for you!

When she's not behind the chair, she enjoys

spending time with family, her fiancé, newborn daughter, Juneau and  their dog, Violet.  She's an avid reader and

enjoys creating digital art to keep her

creative juices flowing.
